New to the Forums

Life long Disney goer, just re-started my annual pass *round of applause* after having not gone for almost a year (I was starting to get the shakes). I find myself going solo to the parks more often than not because there are a lack of like minded people in this area. I have been fascinated with the World for as long as I can remember, and still get excited when I see the Characters adorning the "gate" leading into the compound. I like to go at least twice a month, more if I can manage (gas and tolls, ya know) and am thankful to live only an hour away. I have heard of this site, but finally checked it out today. Very cool stuff! Looking forward to another magical year at the Haus von Maus!

I'm so jealous I am having to spend a heap of money and time on 3 planes to get to Orlando and visit my favorite mouse. I'm 32 and never grew out of my love for Disney especially the parks... It's been a 21 year obsession so far but I'm doubting it'll ever go away my obsession is here to stay and I refuse to grow up!!!
Welcome btw I'm really new on here to.

Welcome to all the newbies! (By post count, I am a newbie too ... but have been a lurker here forever!)

This place is definitely addicting! Sometimes I find myself having to literally turn off the laptop and put it away so I can get something done LOL

Loving all things Disney since 1976.

@DisneyWoelTraveller **! Yeah, it's a haul from your neck of the woods!
@lthiesfeld07 Good luck on the job! Hope you get to visit in April
@Landscaper Thanks, and welcome to FL!
@BearcarsFan Not so much addicted to the forum, as I am to the place! Would go everyday if it weren't an hour drive and $30 between tolls and gas!

Planning my Sunday attack on the parks, they'll never know what hit 'em!

Hi everyone! I am also new to posting. I have been a lurker for a few years now.
I am in Bradenton and would like to hear from anyone my age who might not feel like going to Disney alone.
My teenage son has made it clear he doe not want to go to Disney anymore

0.o Doesn't want to go anymore? Yeah, I am the only one in my group of friends that is crazy enough to go all the time. Trying to talk a few into making the plunge to get an annual pass, but it has been fruitless!

HI! I live in Davenport, and I have an annual pass as well! My family is getting sick of going with me and I'm not getting my usual fix. Email me and maybe we can get together! rach110786atgmail

Davenport is about the same distance from the World as I am! I am trying to go on Sunday, but the threat of inclimate weather may have me opting for less saturated activities!
