    Hi ya, folks - from the ATL

    Thought I'd drop by for a quick intro.

    I'm a disney-geek dad from Atlanta Georgia. Have been severely hooked on the mouse for about the last 10 years (hmmm, my oldest daughter is 10...wonder if there's a connection?). Being in Atlanta, WDW isn't that far of a drive but I believe our record was set at 5 trips in a year a while back...can't get enough (oh yeah, and the rest of the family enjoyes it too ) By day I'm a Sr Technical Director at THE phone company (at&t). Have worked in IT for about 20 (egad) years from textile manufacturing, PC Gaming, ISP, Web-development, etc. Like a lot of us, have been trying to land a role with DIS for a while (Will Work For Cheese - The Disney Cast Member Wannabe - shameless). Listen to most of the DIS-related podcast but still not on too many forums. Have a wonderful wife of 16 years and a daughter 10 (future costume designer) and son 7 (imagineer all the way). Truly enjoy every little detail of the parks as well as the cast members I've worked with on the business side.

    Welcome to the forum! I know you will enjoy it. If you are like me, you will use this website to get you through, until your next WDW trip. It's tough to be a Disney junkie!
