Hi!!! And Welcome to the site!!!
A number of members asked me about adding a forum like this (thanks for the suggestion!)...
So, I guess it's up to me to get this new forum and thread going, so here goes...
My name is Louis Mongello, and I have been fascinated by Walt Disney World throughout my almost 50 visits. My first trip was in Novermber, 1971 when I was just three years old. During those trips, I tried to learn everything I could about the history, secrets and inner workings of the resort. I am an attorney and also own and run an information technology consulting and web development company.
I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Villanova University and a Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University School of Law. I served as law clerk to the Presiding Judge of the largest vicinage in the nation, and practiced law actively for 9 years. In 1995, I formed Imagine Enterprises, a computer consulting and web development firm.
Prior to writing the Walt Disney World Trivia Book, in 1990, I wrote, edited, self-published and marketed two editions and printings of "The DJ Handbook: A Complete Manual for the Beginning and Expert DJ."
Having been a reference source for friends and family planning trips to Walt Disney World for a number of years, I thought I should do something with all of the "useless knowledge" I had accumulated about his favorite vacation destination. So, the idea for the book was formulated out of personal interest in some of the lesser-known facts about the parks, general Walt Disney World trivia, and the "magic" that drives tens of millions adults and children on recurring pilgrimages to the resort.
Throughout my ongoing research into this project, I added to my large collection of Walt Disney World memorabilia, including rare documents outlining Walt Disney's original plans for his Florida project, dozens of books and articles about the parks, and materials only available to Walt Disney World Cast Members. Having spent countless hours pouring over text, video and images of Walt Disney World from construction to the present day, old property maps, and information about attractions which no longer exist, I continue to be fascinated by Walt Disney World trivia.
My other interests include computers, travel, martial arts training, poker, and running the DisneyWorldTrivia.com web site. I currently live in Edison, New Jersey, with my wife Deanna :minnie: and daughter Marion Rose, who coincidentally was born on Mickey Mouse’s 75th birthday.:mickey:
(OK, I cheated a little, since much of this came from my Bio on the main site ;) , but you get the idea!!!)
Now it's up to you!!
