    Hi, I'm Ken and I'm a Star Wars geek.

    Hello everyone!

    I also consider myself a WDW enthusiast wanna-be, a.k.a. "not enough money to go but once every few years". Even though I'm as big as an NFL linebacker, I still get teary-eyed every time I set foot in the parks because I instantly feel happier and know that I'm going to have a magical time. I have been to WDW 5 times, my wife maybe a few times more, and we took our 2 1/2 year old son for the first time back in February of this year. We generally go to the parks commando style and did the same this time with our son. Although more mentally tiring than past trips due to the child-wrangling aspect, I found WDW even more magical this time because I could experience everything again through my son's eyes. We're also expecting a little girl later this month and I can't wait to take her to WDW as soon as possible!!!

    Welcome!! you growing family sounds lovely, and how great to share and teach the Disney love to them. A lot of us are infrequent visitors, but we still get to learn here, and play games and make friends, so it is all good. Again, Welcome.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
