    I was just wondering what type of jobs are held by DVC members.
    example: I worked for 27 years at a retail department store before it closed, now I am a Homemaker (no children) and my DH works for a plastics corporation called ALCAN.

    So what do you do besides make plans for DVC vacations?

    I've worked as a math teacher/instructor/assisstant professor full or part time for 35 years! I want to do this for many more years.

    DH is an engineer, working in the automotive suppliers industry. He does lots of traveling for work, and his frequent flyer miles help with our DVC planning. Sometimes I even get to travel first class!

    We are empty nesters.

DD-4 is part-time figure skater, part-time ballerina, learning how to do the starfish float at swimming lessons and a full-time Disney Princess.

    I left corporate America as a Telecommunications Manager after 15 years and am lucky to be pursuing my true love as a freelance violinist. I am trying to start teaching beginners, as well as playing in a number of symphony orchestras in the area. I also play in quartets for weddings and such. Great fun!

    DH is still in corporate America and loves it. He is a Director of IT.

    We don't have any children...we're getting a little 'advanced' in our age, but we aren't ruling it out just yet....

    Wow, bobbiwoz and I are leading mirror lives! I'm also a math teacher (not a college instructor yet, but just interviewed for such a job yesterday-got my fingers crossed!). DH is an engineer who travels ALOT, and our next flight to WDW is "funded" by frequent-flier miles, as many are. Thanks to all the flights he takes, DS and I will fly to WDW first class in January. DH and I are also empty-nesters (just bought a smaller house), and since DS no longer lives at home, next January's trip is that much more special to me.

    My wife is a fulltime college student and fulltime mom. She graduates in six-months (which means a job, steady income and MORE POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!).

    I am a Project Manager in banking software. In fact, I worked on a project with a very large Orlando company (that you may have heard of) installing a major overhaul to their Credit Card system years ago. Got to stay at about every resort free over a 1 year period. Certainly was a wonderful experience.

    All my work is international. In fact, I have traveled to every country that is represented in Epcot (and 30 some others). In the end I give up my air miles to relatives (last thing I want to do is get on another plane). Me and the family would rather head to WDW then any where else in the world.

    But, if I had to pick another place to go I would love to go back to:

    Prague (with a side trip to Vienna and Budapest).
    Hong Kong
    New Zealand
