What is your favorite Disney attraction? I think I like Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom.
Which Disney hotel have u enjoyed the most? For me, the Polynesian followed by the Contemporary then the Swan...Although I like them all...except Yacht Club seemed too stiff.
I know I am a little late on this but thought I'd re-energize the conversation as well as introduce myself to the board ... hope you all don't mind.

I am 45, single, and retired (mostly) ... my profession was industrial organizational psychology. Basically I worked for corporations distilling behaviors and how they affect performance.

My favorite Disney attraction is Peter Pan's Flight but my favorite park is EPCOT Center (yes I will always all it that) ... and yes, I still love EPCOT even though it is a shell of it's former glory.

My favorite hotel is the Beach Club or the Boardwalk, again this is in large part due to the ease and proximity to EPCOT Center ... LOVE being able to walk there whenever my mood strikes me!

Hi Jean! It looks like we might be the only two single gals left!

Do you get down to WDW often, being in Toronto?

Hi Sue!

Yes, sometimes I go twice a year. The last time I went was Christmas '12 but I am not planning on visiting this year. How about you?

Well ... I'd like to say that in an act of defiance against current regime I won't be supporting WDW until changes are made but unfortunately I am part of the problem ... I have plenty of time on my hands and the allure of Disney being like my second (first) home is too much to keep me away.

I've been probably five times this year, and I'll probably go back in September/October time frame.

I use to live in central Florida but when I retired recently I decided I had it with the heat and I had some friends in NY state, so I bought a house there and moved up ...

But like I said, I am retired so I have alot of free time to pursue hobbies, but mostly travel and ... well ... WDW is hard to quit! (Nor do I want to quit!)

Why no trip this year for you?

WOW! Five times! I am so jealous. I would love to visit five times in one year as well. But what I like most is staying for more than a week. Because of gas and flight prices, we(best friend and me) like to visit for about 2 weeks. Congratulations on your early early early retirement and a new place in NY.

No trip this year because of budgeting and we used up all our points already.

I'm from North Florida. I travel to Savannah and Hilton Head Island a few times a year. It's so pretty up there! I own at DVC and I try to spend as much time as possible at HHI! I know it's not NC, but it's close.  Do you ever come down for the parks?

I haven't been to HHI in awhile but I love it down there, such a nice place. I make it to parks once or twice a year.

Welcome Sarah! I'm not from NC, but I did grow up in the SE (outside Atlanta, specifically). Currently in Los Angeles.
