Newbie from uk!

Hi all!
Only been on here a few days...im helen from england!!
Massive fan of everything disney, been to walt disney world four times would love to go more often but the distance and cost holds me back. Also love the universal and seaworld parks.

Looking to keep updated with all things new in orlando and disney as a whole, also maybe to get to know some folks maybe for meet ups when i finally get back out there! Have a great day all! H xx

I'm in the south east, about 5 miles outside Reading (home of Reading Festival!).

I went to Birmingham Pride many years ago, it seemed like a really nice city!

Hey

Great to see other UK based Disney fans. My hubby and I are based in the East Mids.

Maybe we should look at creating a UK based WDW fan group - lol x

Our accents are far from sexy!! Lol

Nandos is amazing, its my fave place to eat.

Is your trip just a vacation or do you have reasons for visiting? Are you going to disneyland paris?

It depends on which accent - my hubby has a Scottish accent which is great, mine is a mix between Birmingham, Dorset and Scottish which is interesting.

Nandos is awesome - could eat it all the time also.
