Welcome to the boards!!!
I must say you people are having fun. Hello there, I am the newly installed executive in charge of FUN. It is my job to make sure all of you are having fun when visiting WDW.
Sometimes my job isn't all that it is cracked up to be. This is because if you aren't having fun I must detain you until you do have FUN. It is difficult, I know, but someone has to do it.
This position I hold is extremely important. Children of all ages are now required by law to have fun at WDW. Therefore, the board of directors created this position to make sure everyone was having fun. You have no idea just how kewl a job this is.
For example, last year, before I was appointed, I got a taste of how it would be when I sat next to Lou with his studio grade equipment recording a professional FUN program. I also met his lovely wife who, with my wife started to give Lou some FUN comments about his electronics. It was all in FUN of course. We certainly had some laughs.
Lou, I am proud to say, provided me a wonderful reference for this job. He really knows who is who around WDW and with his recommendation I was a shoe in for the Chief FUN Officer position.
So, I thank Lou and I want to let everyone know I will be lurking around this site making sure everyone here is having FUN. This is part of my responsibility you know and I take it very seriously
So, go go.....have FUN and let the good times continue.
Rees, WDW-CFO (Chief FUN Officer)

Welcome, yes we have fun here, lots of fun, sometimes too much fun. But welcome and keep up the good work.
P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.
Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
Welcome to our jungle! We got FUN and games
Welcome to DWT WDW-CFO! You'll have just as much of a good time here as we do!
Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

NEXT TRIP: Sep/Oct 2011 - WDW's 40th Anniversary!
I leave in 7 hours for WDW for my 30th can you send me extra helpings of fun?
YUP......by golly I discovered I have a couple here in my pocket. Here ya go. Enjoy your FUN. There is only one hitch. You must report back to me what you did with your extra FUN. I can't wait to hear.
Your CFO (Chief FUN Officer)
I have checked and Human Resources said that we can provide an assistant CFO position after proper background checks etc. I am sure you will fly through that with no problem. You will have the same awesome responsibilities as I do. You must assure that everyone is having FUN. You must detain anyone who isn't until they get it right. hehe. And you must report your actions to me so I can combine mine with yours so a proper report is made to the board. This is done annually. A mere sentence saying you did your job is all that is required. Heck, thats what I do. (giggle) This position requires that you have FUN too. So any paper work must be held to a minimum.
I guess that covers it.
GIOny, you are now an assistant Walt Disney World Chief Fun Officer.
p.s. Others wanting this position will be authorized per this posting. Merely state your intentions in this official thread and advise me of your wanting to be an assistant WDW-CFO. You will be automagically authorized.
This consideration is provided as we want as many CFO's available and thank GIOny for starting this avalanche of interest.
The Executive Board was consulted for this report and they voted to extend assistant CFO positions to anyone young or young at heart. The board made it clear however that there must be FUN when attending Walt Disney World. This is in line with the original intent of creating my original position as WDW-CFO.

Welcome, Rees... I mean.. sir!!! GREAT to see you here! I know you've been hard at work preparing for your new role, so I'm happy that you made it!
Having met the CFO in person, I can attest to the fact that the man is fully qualified for this position (and a heck of a nice guy, too!)
Now excuse me... I have to go have some fun.... (is staring at the laptop considered fun?)

AHEM......whats this "SIR" business? Mr. Lou, SIR is not a FUN word. Consider this your first warning and just call me Rees OR just don't call me late for dinner. OK? 10-4?
I must admit that Lou is about the most FUN guy out there. Whether or not he is staring at his laptop or not he provides hours of FUN to everyone each week. I bow to thee.
SO, onward and forward. And enjoy the rest of the week.
