Post #3 is reserved for our featured Roll Callers. This is the spot where you can get the low down and skinny on your fellow December Roll Callers. Check back every few days as I will update it with new Dis'ers. If you would like to view past featured Dis'ers, check out this special presentation! For those who want to be a part of the fun, please PM me so we can keep requests off the thread.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. taaren


Your 3 sentence biography: Thirty-something librarian, mom, and wife. Born and raised on Maui, and currently living on the island again, but consider the Bay Area in California where DH and DS5 were born "home". DVC members, Disneyland AP holders, reader, dreamer, organizer, gamer, travel lover, and foodie.

First time or Zillionith trip to WDW? 2nd for me, first was in 1992. First for everybody else in my party except DH (coincidentally, also 1992).

Brief background about your upcoming trip (include dates):November 30-December 15, 2+ years in the planning ... 8 people including DH, myself, our best friend, our friends who happen to be his brother & wife, and their kids who are 7 and 4 and great playmates with DS5.

Why did you choose December? DBF's birthday and mine are both the first week of December, his brother's is in between and his brother's wife's is also December, so what better way to procrastinate ... I mean celebrate .... getting older? Plus we prefer cool weather to heat, wanted to see the Osborne lights, and if I'd graduated when originally scheduled this was to be a celebration for finishing my MLIS.

What are you most looking forward to? Spending time with our dear friends. We don't get to hang out with our travel partners enough since they live so far away.

My most cherished upcoming ADR: Chefs de France. Adore French food, the atmosphere and Remy look great, and its DBF's 40th birthday lunch.

Favorite Disney snack (or for those who haven't been, what you most look forward to snacking on): Nutella waffle at Sleepy Hollow. I may have a hazelnut addiction ...

My Disney touring style - Commando or Turtle? Somewhere in between.

My upcoming trip is: planned down to the second or going with the flow - We have which park-per-day planned, ADR's scheduled (1 per day), then a priority list of attractions we want to see with the ones we can't see in California at the top. As long as everyone in our large party gets to see their "one thing" per day, we'll be happy. Or maybe just the kids as the adults often overlap on what we like to do anyways.

How you might be able to find me while at Disney: (i.e. Resting in a hammock at CSR, tipsy at WS in EPCOT, 'that couple' in matching outfits, inquiring about the time of the 3 o'clock parade) If you hear exclamations of 'that's just so much bigger here'! Or the ones who look perpetually lost since our Disney map in our heads is of DLR ...

The Disney character that is most like me and why: Marlin, from Nemo. I worry too much for my own good, but still like to enjoy an adventure every now and then ...

DH (then DF) & I in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle in 2008, right around New Year's. Only time we've been in Disney for the winter holidays. Hoping to get another one in front of Cinderella's Castle this year, maybe wearing the same things?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. DisneyDreamerMN


Your 3 sentence biography: My name is Jamie and I am 31 year old born and raised Minnesotan. Married to Kyle who is very supportive of my Disney habbit. No kids yet, but if we are blessed, looking forward to future trips with a little prince or princess.

First time or Zillionith trip to WDW? 7th trip! Hoping for many more.

Brief background about your upcoming trip (include dates): We are arriving in Orlando on December 1st and checking into Wilderness Lodge and staying until the 8th.

Why did you choose December? This was actually my DH's idea. He is slowly becoming more hooked than I am. We were originally planning a Feb. trip, but who am I to argue. Plus I love Christmastime.

What are you most looking forward to? Staying at Wilderness Lodge! It is such a beautiful resort in general, but I can't wait to see it all decorated for Christmas.

My most cherished upcoming ADR: BOG! It's an early dinner but I feel so lucky to be one of the first to try it!

Favorite Disney snack (or for those who haven't been, what you most look forward to snacking on): Dole Whip Float!

My Disney touring style - Commando or Turtle? Both. I like to have some ADRs set and have a general idea of where we will be. But, I can totally switch to commando mode if a park is too busy for my liking.

My upcoming trip is: planned down to the second or going with the flow - aking too long to get here! We have always been last minute bookers, no more than 2 months out, but this one we planned a little too much in advance.

How you might be able to find me while at Disney: (i.e. Resting in a hammock at CSR, tipsy at WS in EPCOT, 'that couple' in matching outfits, inquiring about the time of the 3 o'clock parade) enjoying BTMRR and Splash over and over again. I just love them so.

The Disney character that is most like me and why: Pooh bear. He has been my favorite forever. I like to be friends with everybody, just like Pooh.

LOL. Hey I'm "working!" It's the Friday before a holiday weekend. Not much going on. The new thread starting is the highlight of my day.
