My name is Jana. Couldn't be bothered to think up anything else for a user name LOL. Age well a lady doesn't disclose that . I'm a hair stylist. I have a 9 yr old son. I am working hard on turning him into a Disney addict and it's working . I live in the US but frequent the UK boards ( and the UK ) because of DBF Vernon .
I have been going to WDW since I was 5 yrs old. Have been visiting this site since 1999. DBF Vernon and I met on this site we have been together for 5 years and planning on getting married this year ( waiting on fiance visa to be approved ) and moving to the Orlando area. And of course living happily ever after .

Hi all - no prizes for guessing my name - though I'm known as OrlandoBelle everywhere else.

I'm 37 and live in South Wales although I spent my early DIS years in Portsmouth - can't believe I've been registered here 4 1/2 years already. I'm currently working as a PA although by trade I'm a military aircraft controller (retired )

Got married in Florida to Steve (who disapproves sooo much of my cyber friends) and we now have 2 daughters (aged 7 & 3) who also have the Disney bug.

Have been to Orlando 8 times - twice with friends, 3 times as a couple, twice with one child, once with two children and we're now planning visit number nine for this December.

I only have one other obsession - Will Young - and am currently planning my summer around the tour



I remember fondly the days before the big crash - when UK DIS was a seperate board to the main DIS and when all our posts were wiped out - showing my age

Hi - my name is Becky, but all of my DHs family call me Becks, so I just respelled it to make it a (slightly) more interesting user name!

I'm 35, I live in Chester and I'm married to Oliver who's 41 (I was a child bride!). Ol works in Property Management for the County Council (your guess is as good as mine!?!) and I'm a housewife and mother to our two beautiful little girls - Amy who's nearly 4 and a complete madam and drama queen (adore her really) and Zoe who's coming up to 7 months and thankfully seems more laid back than her sister ever did.

I first visited WDW on a day trip during a holiday in Florida back in '83. Next Disney visit was to DLP the first year it was opened and we have since been back there another four times. Got back to WDW for a week in '96 and a fortnight three years later and now I finally have another trip planned for next January. YEAY. Ol has been a willing travel companion for all these visits except the very first, though given the choice he would rather go camping in the Lake District.

Absolutely love these boards. Would love to get to a DIS meet, but never seem to be in the right place at the right time. Hopefully one day - until then enjoy them while you can!

SORRY THIS IS LONG BUT YOU DID ASK

Hi

My name is Mary. I am a wage sloave working for an investment bank (precise nature of my duties is top secret - even from me) Married to DH (name escapes me for the moment) for 33 years ( well I was a child bride). Four children DS 23 & DD 22 have both left home although they turn up from time to time demanding to be fed and watered. DS's 17 & 13 still at home and strongly resisting the parental boot attempting to eject them from the nest. Well I suppose its OK for one of them to linger in order to keep us in the manner in which we wish to become accustomed in our old age.

Due to severe lack of funds never in a position to contemplate trips across the pond when kids were little. DH has a deeply intrenched aversion to parting with cash for any purpose whatsoever.

How did we ever get to Disney? Well I have a fiery Irish temper and love nothing more than a good row to clear the air. DH refuses to argue with anyone on any subject. As you can imagine we are deeply incompatible ( which is why, as my parents said our marriage will never last). As you can imagine I find this complete refusal to enter into any kind of conflict deeply frustrating - the only thing I can do to spark a reaction is to go out and spend serious money. So one day in July 2001 after a particularly frustrating non argument I went out and booked a trip to WDW for October 2002. The resulting row was extremely gratifying. Emboldened by my success on this occassion six months later after a similar non row I went out and bought a car, which also provoked a satisfying response0

That once in a lifetime trip was enough to get us both well and truly hooked and we bought DVC in July last year shortly before our second trip in August last year. First trip home in October this year and we are off to DLP last weekend in May for another Disney fix.

I too have a weight problem (about four stone) and am following WW diet. This is my second week and will be weighing myself for the first time tomorrow.

Kaylee - Bet you are sorry you asked now! This has turned out like War and Peace - I have always suffered from verbal diarrhoea
on paper.

IVe enjoyed reading everyones replies (born nosey, me!!) so I guess I had better take part.

Im Alison (known as Allie to most!), 36, married to my toyboy, Neil, 30 for nearly 8 years. We have two children, Jessamy who is 4 and baby Daniel-Noah who is 18 months. I gave up work to look after the children, so can claim the glamourous title of Domestic Goddess. Neil works in London doing complicated things on computers. We live in Essex but dream one day of moving to Florida!

Our first trip to WDW was back in 1995, and it was that trip we got engaged. The following year we were married in Florida (funds didnt allow a Disney Wedding...Neil insisted we had to buy somewhere to live instead), but we still had a great day. One day we will renew our vows at the Grand Floridian Wedding pavillion!

We try to get to Florida every year, and this year will be trip number 8. The children love it and have been every year of their lives so far (including each of them in my tummy BEFORE they arrived!!).

This year we are looking forward to more fab meals, another Illuminations Cruise and Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party FOR THE FIRST TIME!! We are soooooo excited and its only May!!

Allie
