Sounds very similar to our situation. I persuaded DW that we should get one as I was working abroad at the time and was being tmepted by some of the offers to move overseas full time. The dog was originally bought as an 'anchor' to ensure that didnt happen
Now we wouldn't be without him

I have posted a wee bit on here so not really a newbie but this is me....

Real name: - Vickie

Family: Married to Colin for 14 years and we have a wee boy who is affectionately known as The Boy,he will be 11 next week....

Occupation: I work in IKEA,not the most glamorous job but it works in well with the boys school.

Home town: Bonnyrigg...its a wee town about 14 miles outside Edinburgh

Hobbies - well my main hobby is more of an obsession...football and more precisely Celtic.
Season ticket holder and try to get to as many away games as possible.

Favourite park: Magic Kingdom - nothing beats the feelin I get when I see the Castle for the first time crossin Bay Lake.
Even tho we stay onsite and can use Disney transport we take the car our first day and take the boat over....Magical.

Favourite resort: Wilderness Lodge - It had long been my dream resort and my DH " found " the money last year for us to stay there.
It did not disappoint,it was amazing.
We are back in the values were we belong but thats ok with me because I have stayed at Movies and POP before and loved them too.


Favourite attraction: Although MK is my favourite Park ToT is my favourite attraction.


Favourite restaurant Ohanas for best friends breakfast, this is a family last full day tradition and it lets me pretend Im stayin at the Poly !!

Thanks for the introduction Vickie

We are all Liverpool supporters in our house and always keep an eye on Celtics results too, due to the special bond between the 2 clubs

I've been lurking on here for ages but just recently started posting so here goes!

Real name: Ashleigh

Family: Me (25), DBF Ally (25, Lightning_McQueen on here) and Boo Radley my gigantic chihuahua

Occupation: I have just gained full registration as a teacher and have just finished my probationary year - so no job for just now! When I get back from September trip I will have to find one

Home Town: Just outside Glasgow, Scotland.

Hobbies: I started running this year and I love it! Such a sad hobby haha! Other than that I like shopping, reading and motorsports.

Favourite Park: I love them all for different reasons but for me the Magic Kingdom is the epitome of Disney magic!

Favourite Resort: Have only ever stayed in Wilderness Lodge and loved it so much we are going back this time! One day I would like to stay in the Grand Floridian but would have to save up a bit longer to budget for that!

Favourite Attraction: Even though I cried queuing for ToT the first time it is my favourite and I could go on it over and over and over again (if DBF would let me!)

Favourite Restaurant I really can't choose - most memorable food was at Jiko but I love the atmosphere in Ohana and California Grill.

Welcome Ashleigh, sorry I missed your post while I was on holiday.

Welcome Claire, Why anyone wants tattoos or body piercing is beyond me but, I almost faint if I have to give blood, needles in bodies its just not right.

Hi, I have posted a few times but I thought I'd say hello on here too!

Real name: Jodie

About my family: I'm 21, I'm a student at university training to teach 3-7 year olds, and I live with my partner Dan, 23, who is in his first year of teaching. We have been together for six years, and have a newly adopted 3 year old silver tabby cat, Kansas. We moved into our first home together in July, and now live in sunny North Norfolk!

Hobbies:
I love reading, particularly literary fiction about India and the East, and I also love Richard Yates & F Scott Fitzgerald. I also like walking, snuggling the cat and surfing the Dis!

Favourite Park: Magic Kingdom, hands down. I do love them all, and they each have some cracking attractions, but Magic Kingdom really does it for me. As others have said, seeing the castle for the first time each holiday really is so magical!

Favourite Resort: Have only stayed in two, but we have a soft spot for Pop Century and this is where we'll be staying in 2013. And it fits in with our wallets!

Favourite Attraction: I love the parades and fireworks displays, watching Wishes is my ultimate favourite moment while we're there. I don't do coasters, but I do love Big Thunder at night, it's excellent. MNSSHP was really brilliant, but being limited to school holidays I doubt we'll go again in the foreseeable future!

Looking forward to: August 2013. My first three trips to WDW were with my Mum and Dad (also a Disney nut and Disboards member) and the last one in 2008 was all four of us. We are saving up to go in 2013, just me and DBF, but with only one of us earning and being limited to school holidays, it's super tough! As my ticker says though (ha)- it's never too early to be excited! This also means I'd be planning the holiday single handedly without my Dad for the first time- so I love reading the PTRs and TRs on here for inspiration!

Hi Jodie - and a big welcome to the Dis.

2013 sounds like a long way away but time and again we are introduced to people that are planning a holiday for 2 years time, and before you know it they are on here saying goodbye as it is time for them to leave

Happy planning

Hi 'M'

A real life Mary Poppins sounds intriguing. Are you really Supernanny from off of the telly

Can I ask where in Germany you are from? I was posted there for 4 years in Herford while I was in the Army. I loved the place and didn't want to leave when the time came

I wish I was Supernanny, then I wouldn't have to worry about a trip budget
But that was a good guess, I've been a nanny for 9 years now

I'm from Northern Germany, from a town called 'Bremen', not really sure how far that is from Herford
