Having said that, take a look at the application when it opens. You never know what new twists, turns and qualifications they are looking for this time.
Thanks. I'll check it out, just the same.

About the honeymoon... my husband and I were friends before we started dating. When we were in that stage where we were both feeling a little more than friendship but were unsure of whether or not we wanted to risk the friendship to try dating, he and I were talking and he told me that it had always been his dream to honeymoon at Disney World. That's when I knew that he was the one for me.

Looks like they're definitely trying to expand their expertise to the parks all around the world, which is very cool!

So ready for this!

Hey Everyone!
I'm Amy, a near-native Floridian with two fantastic kiddos, Jackson (nearly 5) and Emma (nearly 2). I'm an Environmental Scientist at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and I drive by Port Canaveral every single morning and get tortured once or twice a week by the site of Disney cruise ships.

I've honestly probably been to WDW 100 times in my lifetime. I've lived in Brevard County, FL for 30 years and have spent I don't know how many occasions at The Parks, as they are called in my family. My parents took me on my first trip to MK when I was about six months old. I've been to Night of Joy several times, sang in the Candlelight Processional when I was in high school (when it was still at the train station in MK), and I've been to Food and Wine every year since 2000. I am incredibly lucky that my favorite place on earth is only an hour drive from home and that my husband loves to go as much as I do. Both of our kids were six weeks old for their first Disney trips.

We have our first Disney cruise planned for Feb 2013 on the Fantasy where we will celebrate my husband's 40th birthday with some very dear friends.

I'm so excited to embark on this journey with all of you! The camaraderie here is incredible and the cheering on of one another was amazing last year. This will be my second year applying...fingers crossed!

Wishing everyone the absolute best of luck! I feel like I'm on the Rockin' Roller Coaster, about to get zipped off that track and hung upside down! It's going to be a wild ride!!

I will be back again.

Last year was my first year applying. I made it to round 2.

Hoping for a little more Pixie Dust in 2013

Debating on applying for the panel for Disneyland or Disney World. Last year I applied for Disneyland.

How Many Times?

I have perhaps a silly question.

When people say how many times they have visited Disney World, do you count the number of trips to Florida -- or how many days at the parks?

I am from Utah. I usually say I have been to Disney World about 50 times. But that is visits to Florida. If I count the number of days I have gone to the parks, of course it would be much higher.

So how do you count? Visits to the area -- or -- days in the Parks??

Hi Disney friends!

I am a mom to two wonderful kiddos, a daughter who is leaving for a college next week and a son, who is in high school. I work part-time at my son's school and plan Disney vacations (for myself and others) in my spare time.

We have been to Disney 50+ times, are DVC members (since 2002) and have been on 9 Disney cruises with #10 booked for Alaska in May 2013. I am back in again this year for my 5th time. Last year I made it to round two for DCL.

I wish everyone lots of pixie dust. I look forward to sharing this experience with you all!

I count vacations, not each individual day.
