I am a father of DS10 and DS4 and have been to WDW on 15 different trips from childhood to having children of my own. Going through the list these are the ones that pertain to me.

1. Your passion for Disney equals that of a 7 year old kid.
2. You have a wife that thinks you are a big kid.
3. You get more excited than your kids when a trip to WDW is planned (or the excitement at least equals that of your kids).
4. You planned your next Disney trip the day after returning from Disney World.
5. Your eyes start to water with tears of joy when you see your kids having a great time at WDW (and you secretly try to dry your eyes).
6. You have friends and family that do not understand why you vacation in WDW every year (or at least talk about doing it).
7. You have Disney songs on your MP3 player.
8. You constantly watch disney movies.
9. You have trivia contests in the car with your wife like "name all the attractions at Epcot going counter-clockwise."
10. When you and your wife are reading the DISboards she asks you "what is ToT, RnRR, EE and BTMRR, and you know the answers.
11. You did your best to "brainwash" your kids early so they wouldn't have any problem ever wanting to go on a Disney Vacation.
12. You can't decide if you want to go on a Disney Cruise, to Walt Disney World, or to Disneyland for your next vacation (if you can afford it the Disney Resorts over seas are in the equation as well).
13. You have helped plan many Disney vacations for fellow employees in your department. Now you are getting phone calls from other departments asking, "Hey are you the guy I need to talk to about planning my Disney Vacation?"

Ok in the interest of space I need to stop. It would be easier to list what doesn't apply to me.

Looking forward to meeting like minded dads
WELCOME!!!! head on over to the main disdad thread (weres perry) for a proper greeting.:lmao:

While I was looking over the list of qualifiers I was laughing out loud because so many of them fit me. Where do I start? I went to Disney when I was 11 and than again when I was twelve. I didn't go back until I was 33, and that was when I fell in love with it. I made that trip with my girl friend (now wife). A little bit about us. We met in January 2006 (for the second time). The first time we met was in 1987 when our dads decided to drive to the Citrus Bowl to see Penn State play. They took their kids too, I was 12, she was 7. We went to WDW together and then met again 18 years later. After 5 years of dating we got married. Two years before we were married we went to Disney together using her parents DVC. I had never heard of DVC before but when I got to Disney it was all I watched on the TV while we stayed at SSR. Once we left all I wanted to do was go back. From our time in the parks to our wonderful meals, especially Victoria and Albert's I was hooked. The next spring I purchased at BLT and the rest is history. We used our DVC to go to WDW and the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon and now we are heading back to WDW the day after Thanksgiving with our son. He will only be 7 months but i need a Disney fix and he is never to young to start. I constantly find my self looking through the Disboards for new info on Disney. Although my wife isn't as big a lover of Disney as I am she understands because her father was. I hope you will accept me into the DisDads.

    Hi Gents,

    Just found this. Up 'till now these boards had a decidedly estogen fueled vibe. Sign me up.

    I'm the Disney nut in the house but my two girls are just about ready for full disney maniac status. My wife seems to think there is value in vacationing to places that aren't disney themed but we're not conviced. We've got a trip planned for Novemeber for the little one's 5th birthday (any excuse will do).

    I look forward to talking with you guys. Thanks.

    Have read through and more than a few apply. I've recently been made the proud dad of a soon to be Disney loving little girl. Ever since the idea hit me I cannot stop reading the disboards and working on planning our first trip together (currently around Wine and cheese festival in 2012). She was too young to enjoy it but that didn't stop me from making Pooh her first movie!

    Thanks for having me if you will.

    Hi Dis-Dads. I want in!!!! DVC member since 2007, but have been going to the World since the year it opened.

    Does anyone remember the covered area in Epcot at the entrance to the World Showcase where they had video phones to make dinner ressies?

    Likely going back next August with DW, DS, DS and DD.
