I'm afraid the magic would fizzle if it wasn't such a special treat for me. Plus I lived in North Carolina for awhile and between the summer heat and humidity and the hurricanes, I'll keep my cold winters and lilacs tyvm :goodvibes

I'll live inside Disney, thank you very much! Can you imagine waking up every morning to the sight of Cinderella castle? :earseek:

I voted that I'd like to live near Disney so I could take more short trips. Actually that's only half true. Although I'd like to be able to go more often I really don't want to live in Florida. I like the seasonal change and mountain views right here.

I agree - I don't think this northern girl could hack the weather but it would be nice if Disney could magically get closer every once in awhile so I could take a quick road trip! :wizard:

I voted inside Disney. I tell my husband I want to retire there all the time. He thinks I am kidding, I'm not. :earboy2: 6 months in Disneyland, 3 months in WDW (I can't take the weather year round), 3 months traveling the world. Perfect. I just need to win a large lotto. :rolleyes1

I lived in Southern California, had AP's for 8 years straight. Went at least weekly. Never ever got burnt out on Disney. :goodvibes Now I live in Texas, so I am right inbetween WDW and DL. If I have to be far from Disney, inbetween works for me. :flower:

I have thought about this seriously before and I have said to others that if I thought for a minute that I could get a good enough job to be able to pay all the bills, I would move down to Celebration in a moments notice. I have some family nearby so I wouldn't be alone and it would give my family a reason to come and visit. Since I live less than 5 miles away from my parents, they never come over. Oh well!

Since I can't live IN WDW, really..... I used to want to live in Orlando, but I'm not sure if I want to live in the midst of the city. I would love to live within a 4-6 hour drive,maximum, somewhere nice & warm year-round & preferably on the water, Florida or not.....
Then I could have the best of both worlds.....

I voted I would stay where I am at. I love having the lakes around me in MI. Plus it does make my trips more special and magical.

Now all I need is one of those teleporter things like the Jetsons have so I can teleport myself down there whenever I want to and still live here :)

I wish I lived right near Disney World...so I could go whenever I wanted! But I want to still have my 4 seasons with leaves falling, snow and all that good stuff....so I guess that wouldn't really work would it? :teeth:

I voted that I want to live within a 2-3 hour drive from WDW. We actually almost moved to Tampa last year, but then decided that with two little kids, it would be better to wait a few more years. We just bought an expensive house in New Jersey, so I figure we'll stay put and enjoy for 7-10 years. Then, before my kids get to high school, I think we'll reconsider moving to Tampa. So that's about 11 years since my son will be 3 in August. My home should appreciate signifcantly by then ;).

I'd love to live within a 4-6 hour drive from WDW. Close enough to get there in one day, but far enough away to keep the experience magical. Once a month or so I mention moving to Florida to DH and he says great, I hope you like it there! I'm afraid I'll never get him out of Texas, but I plan to work on it when the kids are grown!

Prior to my sister becoming a snowbird and buying a place 50 minutes away from WDW, I would have said I would like to live very close to Disney during the winter months.. Now I can just spend a few winter months with her and still spend the summers in the mountains in upstate NY.. The best of both worlds! :flower:

However, my months in Florida won't be "all" about Disney.. I'm already making lists of other areas I would like to see while I'm there.. There's SO much to see and do down there - much of it free - and I can't wait to experience it all! :)

Where's the option for:
I want to stay where I am, but have a lot more money and free time so we can visit WDW several times per year. :)

After visiting, I don't really want to live in FL. Before our trip, I was already looking for a new job, but after our trip, I started looking at jobs on the east coast where you could drive to Orlando in a day or less. Being able to drive instead of fly would make it much more affordable for a family of 6.
