I don't like flying either though once I am up I calm down a little, would feel better if a parachute was on bored so I had the option of jumping out

You will be in disney the same time as us and we are in POFQ

Must admit I'd rather have a parachute then a rubber dinghy!
I am also OK once I am up there but if we hit turbulence then I am a wreck

LOVE POFQ..

Kate 38, Fiance Adam 31 DS 11 and DD 3...Fuzz the cat 7 ...we are off to our first WDW trip next May (not fuzz) (adam went when he was 12) we have been to DLP in January for DD's 3rd birthday and DS has been 4 times since he was 2.

I just do Administration for my partners Surveying business at the moment as I got made redundant when DD was 3 weeks olds, & it's been nice to be home with her all this time..though more tiring and harder work than work work at times, I think I will go back to other work (Tech Administrator/Customer service/ or alike) when DD goes to full time school....maybe....or maybe go do an Interior design course...we'll see :-)

I am originally from Liverpool but moved -'darn souf' when I was 13 had a stint back there from 19ish to 27ish then moved back to Hertfordshire....have now settled in Surrey with Adam, we're getting married next June in Siesta Key after 15 days in Orlando..so next year is super exciting for us...we can't wait! We are staying 5 nights at the Poly on DXDP (we will NOT eat all that food but we're doing a few dinner shows & 2 TS restaurants etc so it worked out cheaper to do DXDP) then onto a private villa where my Mum will be joining us on day 7 & my sister with her clan and adams dad & his wife and then adams brother too....we then go to Siesta Key on day 15 and some friends are also joining us, we get married on June 4th and then are having another week of relaxation there before flying home! We will get a one night honeymoon...but we'll owe ourselves a decent one for when the kids are both older..:-)

We used to love festivals (especially Glasto) but since DD it's not as easy to leave 2 kids for a long weekend and then a few days recovery with grandparents/aunts..though we did have an aunt booked in for next year then realised it's only 3 weeks after florida so we can't afford it as Adam will need to get back to making money straight away after a month off!!
I enjoy yoga (red hot particularly) boot camp style fitness and swimming...though I don't do much of it....a)time b)bad kness...I read a lot and love films & a lot of sky atlantic programmes.... I drive the kids to their swimming/diving/ballet/gymnastics...great fun!

I can't wait for Discovery Cove, Seaworld and IOA (for WWOHP) (oh we are doing one night at universal too...mid trip...) but I also can't wait for EVERYTHING else....

Hi, I have posted a couple ofthings on the Uk boards, but i mainly Lurk

I am trying to particiapate a bit more these days. :O)

The Real Me: Andrea aged 29 DH Martin 37 - DD1 Summer Rose 3 DD2 Lacey Belle 1 and for good measure DD3 is due in about 10 days time EEK!!

Occupation: When not on maternity leave i am a claims negotiator for a travel insurance company.

Favourite Park: Epcot - Love world showcase and Illuminations Rocks.

Favourite rides: ToT and Soarin' - The last visit i was pregnant so couldnt ride hardly any of the rides so the next trip i intend to ride them all

Favourite resort: OKW we come back every year :O)

Best Disney moment: There have been many, but by far the first time my 1 year old saw Mickey Mouse. She literally grabbed his nose when he bent down and wouldnt let go, kept kissing it. Very cute, but the CM was slightly afraid Mickey might have an accident which may have resulted in a few tears from other chidren as it was a vice like grip she had

Worst Disney moment: Nothing to do with disney, but travelling with my In laws 2 years running, the arguments the first year should have been a warning, this years were unlike anything i have ever seen - Swore NEVER again and meant it - Even to the point i would rather NOT go back than go ANYWHERE with them again! Just shows how bad they are

favourite Restaurant onsite: Raglan Road and House of Blues, although was disappointed they had taken the Wild Mushroom and chicken Pasta off the menu on the last visit as this was my ultimate fav dish in DTD!

Favourite Restaurant offsite - Chilli's and Bubba Gump - just love the shrimpin dippin Broth! No matter how hot it is outside i always order this dish and its got quite a kick.

Cant wait for my girls to be old enough to do Discovery Cove. My Hubbie and I got married in the Domincan Republic and swam with dolphins on our honeymoon, cant wait to share this experience with our girls.

Thanks - think i'll need it.

Its a shame on UK soil they are fine - But the altitude when flying seems to provide them with a temporary personality transplant!!

However, they are the type that think they are in the right no matter what the circumstances. I refuse to expose my kids to that kind of crazy anymore. LOL

Am looking forward to 4 weeks of just Hubbie and the Kids be nice to just do our own thing. Without worrying about what the other "grown ups" are getting up to!

Hi

I am Michelle and I am Disney crazy (aren't we all!?)

Age: 26

Family: DH 27

Occupation: Veterinary Care Assistant

Favourite park: Ohh, it's a toss up between EPCOT and HS

Favourite resort: Dolphin was a lovely hotel, great location. Although AKL was awesome because we were lucky enough to get upgraded to Savannah view, eating breakfast on the balcony and watching the Giraffes every morning was AMAZING!!

Favourite attraction: EE, TT, ToT, Rock'n Rollercoaster, Splash Mountain and BTTMRR

Favourite restaurant: Soooo much good food, but I would have to say that I really enjoyed Boma.

Favourite characters: Mary Poppins. It is my life long dream to work at Disney and be MAry Poppins in the parade

Been on the boards for a few years, but I've only just discovered this thread so thought I'd add my little profile to it!
Pretty much I'm just copying the above post and replacing with my answers (thanks Emma!!!).



Real name: Steve

Age: 31

Family: DW29, no kids

Occupation: Assistant Section Manager in a supermarket

Favourite park: Epcot, 100%, with MK coming in 2nd

Favourite resort: Onsite we've only done Dolphin and AKL, but doing YC next sept. Fave so far is the Dolphin. Love it so much, and love the location.

Favourite attraction: Can't choose just one... Space mountain, test track, splash mountain, love spaceship earth for nostalgia reasons. Also have a weird love for tomorrow land transit authority...

Favourite restaurant: One of my favourite things about wdw is the dining. Resort wise, I love Cali grill and citricos. Boma and Sanaa are also cool. In the parks, I love the world showcase. San angel inn is soooo romantic and different. Love morocco too, and always love going to the rose and crown.

Favourite characters: Donald duck is hilarious, has to be him.


Not much else to say. Clearly, I love Disney! Always love watching the films, but particularly I love the parks. I'd go a few times a year if I could afford it. My favourite park is wdw, it's the most magical, for me, by a mile. I'm literally counting down the days to our next holiday there, and am already planning our schedule and dining (I know, really sad).

So hi to all of you. Probably I've spoken to a lot of you before but nice to make it formal! By the way, it's 429 days...

According to the powers that be I’m supposed to give my details here. And introduce myself

So here goes.

Firstly Hello I’m Tony.

I’m older than I would care to be, but still young enough to enjoy life.

1. Married (25 Years)

2. Wife (Yes )

3. Children (Yes) 2 all grown up and the twins aged 7.

4. Dog (Yes )

5. Live in Gods county of Yorkshire. Any Yanks reading this we are the Texas of England. Big, Bold, Brassy and the Best.

6. Been to Disney more times than I care to Remember. First time we went Old Town was called New Town.

7. Favourite Park……………………… Hollywood Studies.

8. Favourite Resort………………… All Star Music. I just loved the atmos.

9. Favourite Pig Out Stop…………. Too many to say. But if you push me 50s Prime and Dine. I just love the chicken.

10. Favourite Ride……………………… Star Tours, Tower Of Terror, and It’s
a small world……. Joking! Like everyone over the age of 12 I hate it with a passion.

11. Favourite Character…………….. Donald, He has attitude.

12. Favourite none Disney…………. Don’t make me laugh how anyone
could compete with Disney is unthinkable! Ok Universal studios had a couple of good bit but it’s not Disney.

So that’s about it. Nothing exciting I know. Just your average Disney Nut who thought he’d pass on his years of experience to anyone who cares to listen.

And please take all comments in the spirit that they are given………………. Tongue in Cheek and hopefully not the least offensive. If I do upset anyone, please note it is totally unintentional and I am truly sorry.

Regards

T

Ps. I can't spell..................sorry

Great to find out about members new & old.

Tony, I spent a lot of time in Liversedge when I was younger my Auntie & Uncle lived on Milton Gardens, my other Uncle lives on Thornleigh Drive.

Paul, I used to know Garforth quite well, we have 2 lots of friends who live in Rothwell so had plenty of meals out that way, Swan at Aberford one of our favourites although not been for a long time. We used to goto a club in Garforth for a drink, on the main Aberford rd but its a lot of years ago so can't remember the name, its probably an Indian or Chinese restaurant now

Hi Wayne,

we are quite new to Garforth (about three years) but we love the place, i went to the swan a few years ago and was introduced to Barnsley chops (nearly fell off my chair when i saw the size of the plate) it was a really nice place when i visited.

the club im not sure about but there is an Aagrah there on Aberford rd now so you could be right about that one
