    Saying "Hi" as directed.

    So, basically I'm a late 20 something with money that I started burning by frequent trips to Disney about 6 years ago. I went often as a child, and now fly down (I'm from Nashville, TN - well, I have a home here - and live part time in ATL with my boyfriend there and I travel for business 75% of the time so saying I'm from anywhere is silly) about once a quarter. I work in financial due diligence risk - started my career doing actual work in corporate restructuring and some forensic accounting and now do the client side of it. Its AWESOME.

    I love Epcot - drinking about the world is awesome and Illuminations is my favorite fireworks show that I've ever seen at Disney and I've seen all of them in their various incarnations since 1984 - not that my folks spoiled me, my mom says I'm "well loved." Due to the love of Epcot, and Starwood Points for business and personal travel, I typically stay the Swan or Dolphin, but as a kid we stayed at the MK resorts and as an adult I've hit them all again over the years and have also enjoyed the Yacht and Beach Clubs.

    My favorite ride is Expedition Everest, followed by Space Mountain and the Haunted Mansion.

    I'll be back in WDW on April 23rd (OMG, I'm turning 30, kill me!) and we'll be doing the Keys to the Kingdom tour which should be awesome. I have lurked here for ages and decided I wanted to get involved in the community. I will post my questions under the seperate and appopriate headings. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Cheers - Amber

    Welcome!
    If you like EE, you'll love Crush's Coaster. Not that it's a lot like EE, but it has the same energy as EE. Now all we need to do is get Disney to build it in WDW.
