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!

    Your 3 sentence biography: I am a 24 year old full time student living in the Tampa area. I am an International Studies major and I love to travel! I am outgoing, nerdy and proud, and above all else a growing Christian.

    First time or Zillionith trip to WDW? Not quite zillionth, but getting close! As you can see from my sig, I visited WDW twice on family vacations as a kid. After moving to FL for college, I had 3 opportunities to visit MK for parties (Pirate and Princess, the one year they did it, and MVMCP), as well as formal school functions at the resorts. I also visited DTD a few times a year to get a Disney fix for free For Christmas 2011 my only request was a seasonal pass. Now I visit an average of twice a month! I jokingly tell my friends that I can quit anytime I want, but like any addiction that's definitely not true I suppose this is a good addiction to have, though!

    Brief background about your upcoming trip (include dates): My good friend Whitney is coming to visit and we will be in the parks 12/17-18. We will be staying at either ASMu or the DTD Hilton (my late bday present from my parents). I'm sure I will be going at least twice in December besides this trip, though - in fact, I know I'll be at Epcot this Saturday 12/1!

    Why did you choose December? We have actually been planning this trip since February, when she and I went to MK together. We were walking by the construction walls for NF and saw the picture of Belle's village and BOG and instantly freaked out! That was the first either of us had heard of the plans for NF (oh, the days before I became Disney savvy and stayed up to date on things!), and BaTB is both her and my favorite Disney movie. We looked at each other and said, "We have to eat there when it opens!!" I spent 4 hours on the phone getting a ressie in August. And now we are actually going!

    What are you most looking forward to? Dining at BOG, of course! There's no way I could afford to eat dinner there on my own dime more than once, so this is probably my only chance. I'm also excited about staying onsite and not having to drive an hour to get home the first night!

    My most cherished upcoming ADR: You should know this one by now!

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

    My Disney touring style - Commando or Turtle? A far cry from turtle, but maybe not quite commando. I do try to maximize my time, though, and I never stop to watch parades or atmosphere stuff. Sometime I'd like to plan a day to focus on the things I always skip. I am always rides, rides, rides! I refuse to stand in any line longer than 40 minutes, and even that's a stretch. I have never used a detailed touring plan, though I do have a general strategy in mind whenever I go.

    My upcoming trip is: planned down to the second or going with the flow - Definitely more the latter. I don't think we've even settled the question of which parks we're hitting which days (except MK the night of our dinner, of course)! Thanks for the reminder, I need to get on that.

    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) On this trip, I'll be the girl with her friend totally spazzing over how beautiful NF is! On a regular day, you can find me relaxing on the PeopleMover, riding Soarin' for the 3rd time that day, getting emotional during One Man's Dream, or screaming on Everest

    The Disney character that is most like me and why: I think Belle and I have a lot in common. We both love to read, grew up in a small town, don't fit in with the crowd, and don't fall for the mainstream guys.

    This is a picture of me at Epcot in 2001! I was 12 years old and very stylish, as you can tell by my bangs and fanny pack I thought I was so cool!!

    Your 3 sentence biography: I'm a 20-something who is a relatively new Disney World fanatic. My Dbf enjoys the trips, but doesn't get nearly as excited as me. We're gamers who love good movies and travelling. I have a special affinity for Tigger, and Dbf's favorite Disney movie is Aladdin.

    First time or Zillionith trip to WDW? This will be our 4th trip in as many years. We both went around age 2, but I won't count those since we don't remember any of it!

    Brief background about your upcoming trip (include dates): We're staying Dec 7-Dec 12. First night offsite, then moving to POP for our first onsite stay. I won 4 - One day park hoppers from My Coke Rewards, so we've got 2 park days and 2 days to enjoy the resorts, DTD, and do some outlet shopping.

    Why did you choose December? We've been in August, May, and June for Star Wars Weekends. I swore I'd never go again in the heat, so it was only natural for our next trip to be in December. Plus - Holiday decorations!!!

    What are you most looking forward to? The castle with all it's lights, new Fantasyland, and Pin trading for the first time.

    My most cherished upcoming ADR: Boma. Dbf and I like to eat unique foods, so I made an ADR here for our first trip. We ended up eating there again before we left, twice the next trip, and once on the third trip. Boma is sooo yummy...can't wait!

    Favorite Disney snack: School Bread! Closely followed by the Grand Marnier Orange slush.

    My Disney touring style - Commando or Turtle? Commando. It's just the 2 of us, so we make extensive use of fastpasses, crisscross the parks, and try to get everything done.

    My upcoming trip is: planned down to the second or going with the flow - I am a big big planner for everything. I've planned a lot for this trip since we have so little time. In the end, our main priorities are seeing things specific to the holidays and doing our favorite attractions in each park.

    How you might be able to find me while at Disney: - Walking around with my jaw open, gazing at the wonder that is Disney World.

    The Disney character that is most like me and why: I see little bits of myself in Rex from Toy Story, Minnie, and Tigger (especially when I'm at Disney and bouncing off the walls!)

    I was afraid to post on the last thread, too, since I didn't want it to lock up before tofu came back!

    So I finished packing (mostly) and did housework! Just have to figure out where all of DS6's socks went (he never wears them when on island), what happened to my favorite birthday scarf, and then stop asking myself why I only own 4 or 5 articles of clothing I own that I think are okay to take a picture of myself in when I'm going to Disneyworld for 2 weeks with Photopass+!!! Should've bought a new wardrobe apparently. :rotfl:
