I'm from Northern Germany, from a town called 'Bremen', not really sure how far that is from Herford
Bremen definitely sounds familiar - as in I think I may have been there. Do they have an army contingent or training area there

Hi Paul
I won't say welcome to the Dis as you are quite obviously a long time member

I read your review on the Dis, and hopefully others will do the same and head on over here if they are looking for help with their planning

Hi all

I'm Amanda from Birmingham. Fairly new to the board and just finding my feet still.

Going on my first Disney Cruise (and first cruise ever) with my family in Feb which I'm very excited about

Nice to 'meet' you all

Hello

I have already done a few posts but thought I should introduce myself

My name is Sarah, originally from Manchester but now live down south with DH.

Have been to Disney twice with family when I was younger.

This will be my DH first time to Disney and its the first trip to Disney I have got to plan.

I am finding it a bit daunting but exciting too. My DH is not really into helping at the moment as its taken me ages to convince him to even go, but I can see he does get excited when I do bring up the conversation and I am sure nearer the time he will be all over these forums

I have no kids yet Just a cat and a kitten.

I foster cats for cats protection.

Hobbies are Geocaching, paper crafts and planning lol

Sorry if I have waffled on

Welcome Sarah, enjoy your planning, ask anything you need to know.
Stick with cats, far cheaper than kids
Nice to have someone else around into Geocaching

Real name: Kirsty
Family: Live with my boyfriend, moved away from my family when I was 18 so I now live 200 miles away from my darling dad and my wonderful sister.

Occupation: PA (or general dogsbody... !!)
Home town: Chester, live in Edinburgh now (via Inverness, Aberdeen and Glasgow)


Favourite park: Magic Kingdom without a doubt

Favourite resort: Any! As Ive only been to Disney Land Paris twice and stayed on and off site there, and have been to WDW upwards of 8 times since I was a child I've stayed pretty much everywhere. Never stayed in the Contemporary or any of the Pop/Movies etc.

Favourite attraction: Space mountain and Cinderella's castle

I'm heading over in September this year for 2 weeks with the OH. Staying in Port Orleans Riverside, have 14 day park hoppers, QS dining plan and flying with Virgin. This is the OH first time to America, and his first time in WDW (he took me to Disneyland Paris last year for my Christmas!) so its going to be really special!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone, and picking your brains about times/places to eat etc

K xx

Real name: Andrew

Family: Married to Susan (15 years!), Boys Harry (9), Sam (8)

Occupation: Computer programmer (hardcore nerdy C++). Susan is a Company Secretary.

Home town: Nottingham - have lived in Kingston (5 years), Newark (8 years), but been "home" for the last 2.5 years and now live 200 yards from the house I was born in

Favourite park: MK, although it's been a while

Favourite resort: Not done enough to say. Hopefully OKW!

Favourite attraction: I'm easy, I like all sorts. I'm a big roller coaster fan, but at Disney I like all the twee stuff as well!

Disney history: My parents took me+brothers to DW in 1981 (I was 8), stayed offsite. We were nearly in Florida for the first ever shuttle launch, but it was delayed 2 days and we went home . Then Susan and I went in 1997, in the 25th anniversary season. Stayed at All star Music. 2 weeks of pure Disney with 1 day at KSC. Animal Kingdom not opened then.

Last October we booked 2 weeks at OKW (1BR) for the 4 of us 20 Oct-3Nov 2012 on the free DDP offer. Kids get 2 weeks half term, unlike most, so hopefully take advantage of lighter crowds. Couldn't book flights at the time, so they were done first week of December Manc-Orlando VA. We're all massively looking forward to it, and I've been avidly reading DISboards for the last couple of weeks (and trying to absorb the acronyms!). We're overplanners, so we'll probably have a full timetable sorted by the time ADRs open in April . Apart from that, I think we're going to have a car as well. Would like the versatility, even if we don't get a lot of use out of it.

Thanks very much.

I have to say, DISboards has been very useful. I must have read 6 or 7 full trip reviews already - been trying to find ones from around October/November, and/or ones with OKW as home.

Planning the meals is going to be somewhat interesting. My kids (and my wife, for that matter) are fairly fussy eaters. I'll enjoy anything, so we'll be looking for places we're all going to like. Harry will be 10, so classed as an "adult" on the DDP, but I imagine we'll be ordering kids meals most of the time. Still not really sure how we'll use the plan - book some signature/character meals for 2TS credits, or try and eke out the plan to get most value - not really sure yet. I'm reading reviews for inspiration!

Don't know how much time you have but here are a few of my threads from OKW. I don't do trip reports but I do a live report each time I am there, includes a few pics of OKW and lots of food.
