Posting not working


We are new to the boards and when we try to post to the thread on our upcoming dcl on April 14, 2007 and doe not allow us to ? Not sure why as it keeps asking me to sign in when I try to post a reply? This doesn't happen when we try other replies such as this one.


We figured it out....looking forward to this board as so far it has been filled with tons of useful info even for Disney veterans/fanatics, now I just have to learn the lingo...

I am also new here. I was given a link to this site by someone else I know online. I only live minutes from Disneyland, and have gone many times, but have never been to Disney World in Florida. We are scheduled to go in April during spring break. Which I know is one of the craziest times to plan a disney vacation, but circumstances make that the only time we can get there due to school and other extra curricular activities the kids have. My dad and I will be taking my four kids and my niece. I think we are staying at the All Star's Movie Hotel. Any tips are greatly appreciated

I'll be surfing around seeing what intel I can obtain to make our vacation run more smoothly. Kid ages range from 4 y/o to 16 years old, so it should be interesting.

What the heck is a "Focker"?

Obviously I'm new or I'd NEVER ask that question--lol! I understand that DISsers like to greet one another and Lime Green Mickey Heads (LGMH) are involved, but "Focker"???

Apparently I need to watch "Meet the Fockers" to get this?

Fabulous Welcome...

I just wanted you all to know you have a GREAT community here!
I have been a regular poster on many boards for years and I have never received such an outpouring of help as I did here today. I posted one message and was greeted with amazing generosity.

Thanks so much and be proud of your friendly online community here.

I am new to posting but wanted to come out of the woodwork to say THANK YOU! My DH sprung our very first family trip to Disney on me at the beginning of December....we leave next Sunday (1/14/07)

Without this board I think we would have wasted a ton of time and missed so many things. Thank you all for sharing your tips, experience and photos! I booked ADRs mainly by how good the food LOOKED!

You all are truly appreciated!

My Very First Post

I have been Lurking for a few days and but I have been on here so much I decided to join. I am so Happy to be Part of this Great Family. We are planning a trip in July with my In-Laws before we move out of the country for a few years. I am so excited for this trip. I have been a few other times but never knew there were so many extra things to know and do. So thank you all for all the info you pass on.
