Hello and welcome to our DWT Family!!
Hey, I just recently got back from my first trip to Disney World. I went with a few friends and we had the time of our life! We visited Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Epcot (we also visited Universal and Islands of Adventure) in just 3 days! It was very tiresome, but lots of fun. We packed up and left for Flordia the day after finals. It was def. some motivation to get through finals/dead week. It was so amazing! I hope to go back soon!
I'm going to be a sophomore in college next semester at the University of Central Oklahoma. I have always been a huge Disney fan, and my favorite Disney movie has always been The Little Mermaid. In fact, when we discovered that the line to see Ariel was over an hour long, I refused to do anything but wait to see her. This was my first time in Walt Disney World and by gosh I was going to see Ariel if I had to wait all day! Needless to say the wait was worth it. She was my favorite real-life character and made my whole day. I bought an autograph book and had all the characters sign it. It was a great vacation! First one without the parents, too!
I'm not sure what I want to study in school, but I am involved in the Student Government UCOSA, serving as the Deputy Speaker of the House. I'm also a member of the Sorority Sigma Kappa, and next semester I am part of the Freshman Follies EXEC team and Orientation Leaders. Needless to say, I have a busy semester in front of me, but I plan to audition to be a character with the College Program. You see, it is one of my dreams to become and actual Disney Princess (or character performer, "fuzzy" character or even just to work at the park.) I have lots of goals for my life, such as to travel route 66, eat the 72 oz steak in Amarillo, write a book, have a talk radio show, fly first class, get married and own a jeep and a golden retriever! Hey, I'm only 18, what's stopping me?
Anyway, enough about me, I just wanted to share a story from Animal Kingdom.
When we were waiting outside the gates to get in, the talking palm tree started to conversate with us, and was being very charming and sweet, calling us Princesses and singing for us. When all of a sudden it asked us for a hug and we obliged. It turned to one of our guy friends that had come with us and he was wearing a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity shirt, and it asked him for a hug (he was recording this whole thing) He hugged the tree and then all of a sudden the tree said "That's right brothers don't shake hands, brothers hug" which made us girls think that the palm tree was a fellow Pi Kappa Alpha!!! (He had met at least 3 pikes before this encounter on our last day) We don't know if he was for sure, but it was really cool to think so!
Well now that I've typed my life's story, I'll go back to searching through the boards! Adios!

Welcome to this crazy family! I love your story about Animal Kingdom.
Good luck next semester and have fun! (Don't forget to study somewhere in there--BTW, I'm a college instructor--gotta say that!)
Welcome to the neighborhood. You have a busy schedule, but I hope you'll come back to our little world to converse as often as you can. I've never seen the talking tree. I'll have to check that out in Dec. when I return "home" for a bit of R&R.
