The first rule of the Dis Dads Club, is we don't talk about the Dis Dads Club.

Oh wait, that's the other club I'm in. Never mind.

Welcome aboard!

Oh lord....a ton of things on that list apply...I can just hear my wife saying (uh-huh, that's you). Of course, she won't be as quick to admit that she's the same way. But oh well....(sigh) denial, ya know.

Anyways, I really ought to put links to my last LIVE trip report on my sig (I'll do that when I'm finished here). As a father to two Disney fanatics such as myself (who are now 9 and 6), I'm glad they share my enthusiasm for all things about the Mouse.

Too funny... I went through the list last night and the wife kept laughing and saying, "That's so you!" The best one was when you don't kick the tires of the new minivan, but check out the amount of stow-n-go storage for your WDW luggage. We totally did this when we bought our minivan last winter. The poor sales rep just didn't understand.

To add to the list (if it's still open) you're a DIS Dad when you have the monorail spiels on your iPod and play them over the minivan speakers on trips to the grocery store.

What's worse is the other day, I played the "please stand clear of the doors" spiel as I pressed the auto-close button for the kid's sliding door. The wife just looked at me and shook her head. It made the kid laugh, though.

I'm just not right....

Hey Dad's, hope everyone is doing great! I haven't been on in while so have to get caught up with everything. I'm in the middle of a thirty day hitch before I get to go home. Then its off to San Antonio to watch the Irish play and then just one month till we are back to the Magic! Hope all of you have a terrific week.

Yeah, I think all of our wives could say something like that......

Here's a possible addition to the DIS Dad's list of criteria/symptoms ... you print off the full list (5 pages, 12 point, Times New Roman) of criteria/symptoms because there are some great ideas you haven't thought of and want to implement.

Countdown: 128 days!!!

First off,

That is very funny, love the monorail.

You are correct, you are not right! But that just the way we like em here, just like the rest of us.

It's no secret. Everyone knows it. The last step is "hand it to your wife."

I know there's a lot of us heading down in the next few weeks. Anyone plan on doing a live trip report? Either on the DIS or via Facebook or twitter? I'll probably be updating Facebook regularly via my Blackberry, including pictures. www.facebook.com/barry.sommer if anyone wants to "friend" me and follow along.

We leave in 15 days!
