Your eyes start to water with tears of joy when you see your kids having a great time at WDW
You have friends and family that do not understand why you vacation in WDW every year (or at least talk about doing it).
You have Disney songs on your MP3 player.
You have Disney Ringtones for your cell phone.
You have everything Disney for wallpapers and screensavers.
You have Disney Fonts and Icons as well.
You drink your coffee from one of your multiple Disney mugs
You wear a matching Disney shirt with your kids to the parks.

Just got back from first DLR trip over Spring Break and family really loved it. Heading on a DCL 7 night western cruise June 8 which will complete sailing on all four ships. Gonna do a day at MK before cruise sails to take in new fantasy land.
From one Mike to another, Welcome!

Iphone with Mobile Magic and Touring Plans apps. Camera with extra batteries. And a Britta bottle with filter, works great.

Cross-posting. Anyone know anything about transmissions? The SUV, auto transmission has a slight hesitation shifting out of first, and then it feels like the the bottom of the car is falling out when it shifts again. Happens at high and low speed, and low/consistent acceleration. Any advice would be helpful?

Sun - MNSSHP, 6:50 PM BoG
Mon - Resort, Fulton's Crab House dinner
Tues - MK, 10:20 AM CRT
Wed - Resort, WHW, ESPN Club late lunch
Thurs - Epcot - F&W
Fri - WPE lunch & depart

I may try to move BoG time a little earlier, but I like the plan. Now, only 29 more days until I can book BWV for Spring Break 2014.
Looks like a good plan. How difficult was it to get BOG? Our ADR window opens in a month.

Have a great Monday guys!

:
I called today at the 180 day mark. I couldn't get the +10 to work on computer system. I called thru DVC right when they first opened and got the exact day I wanted. I would have preferred a 50 minute earlier reservation, but I got the day and almost time I wanted. It also may depend on when you are going. October 6 isn't a peak crowd day.

Cool. We're going the first week in Nov, so it will be a bit busier, but not too bad. Going to try and get the reservation for the whole group I'm with though, so that should make it challenging!

Been off the Boards for a few days. I'm into week 2 of our "Crazy 2 weeks" which consists of swimming lessons for 2 consecutive weeks accompanied by my oldest DD's First Holy Communion, Religious Education classes and a dry run on Thursday for her First Holy Communion.
On top of that, I wrecked my car last Thursday. No injuries other then the car! Oh, and filing our taxes. yeah, how could I forget that one!
And I took a new job...with the same company,,,but nonetheless, a new job.

Hope everyone is doing well. Gonna try and cycle through the board to see what I missed!

There was over 1 GB of pictures and video I had to upload and sort. Now, drinking a smoothie and watching the Lakers at Clippers until Mass tonight.
Yup. Asked my wife about her iCloud account and I got the deer in headlights look.

Love those. We came across a similar one of our youngest climbing in the dog's crate and the toy box.

Vehicle expenses always suck. Hope if works out for you. I'll be shelling out $500 for my deductible in about 2 weeks. Last payment on the lease is this month, too.
