    Real Name: Joe
    Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
    Family Situation: Married to a Disney crazed wife
    Children: DD8, DD4, DS1
    Occupation: Web Admin/Architect
    Pets: none, just the kids
    Favorite Food: Pizza followed closely by chocolate chip cookies
    Favorite Drink: Ice Cold Beer.

    Just thought I'd check in over here since I finally got around to creating my own profile. My wife and I are about to take our 2nd trip to WDW this year and the kids will be going back in January. My baby boy is only 14 months old and has been there twice. I'm pretty sure that we have a problem.

    Occupation: Computer Science Professor
    Pets: 14 year old ShihTzu who just keeps hanging on despite the vet's warnings

    I suppose I should stop lurking, and do this properly.

    Real Name:: Rich (although I have been known to answer to "Hey, you!", and look a lot like Ron Howard, so Opie/Richie Cunningham/etc have been known to surface)
    Location: Battle Creek, MI
    Family Situation: Married for 12 years. Two children - DS7 a/k/a "Munchkin" and DD4 a/k/a "SweetPea" (Or, Noisy & Noisier, depending on the day)
    Occupation: Stay-at-home dad (7 years)
    Pets: None
    Favorite Food: Free. I'll eat almost anything, so I get to have fun at WDW, especially during Wine & Dine.
    Favorite Drink: Guiness, but I have been expanding the range to craft beers and the like.
    Hobbies: Miniature wargaming, Scouts, model railroading

    I'm probably going to be adding model rocketry to the hobbies list. One of DWs sisters is at JPL, and has been working on the Mars rover, so my normally space-happy self has gone into geek overdrive.

    Nice to meet you all. I am making the round of introducing myself.

    Real Name: Josh
    Location: Castle Rock, CO (just south of Denver, CO)
    Family Situation: Married 10 Years in January. 3 Y/o Boy and another negative 13 day old son ;)
    Occupation: SEO & Online Marketing (no I don't send spam emails).
    Pets: 3 dogs (Beagle, Lab/Great Dane mix, Jack Russell Terrorist), two cats, and a mother in law.
    Favorite Food: Cake, red meat (knock its horns off, wipe its nasty ol' #$@, and put it on my plate), chocolate
    Favorite Drink: Sugar Free Red Bull, Earl Grey ... Hot, Guinness, Dirty Goose Martini, Sweet Tea (but not at WDW, the water makes it taste funny), and anything served in a cup shaped like Mickey.


    Just to give you my "resume". Been to WDW 5 times, never to DL. Wish Disney's America actually got off the ground so when my wife says she wants to go to visit family in Virginia I could still do a Disney park. Next tattoo is going to be Jedi Mickey with room for me to him fighting Darth Goofy and Emperor Stitch.

    Work is 5 hours away. Better go get my zzzz's on.
