    Smile Hello from Orlando

    Hey guys,

    My name is Jason, and I am a father of one beautiful little princess, though I may be a little biased. I was born in New York, and always loved Disney but never had the opportunity visit DisneyWorld or any of the theme parks until I was 23. In fact, my parents had set up the trip for my daughter (age 6 at the time) and myself. So off we went.

    I could not have imagined the experience any better that the reality. We made the typical mistake of trying to cram too much into one week, but no matter, because we all had an amazing time. Then and there, midway between watching the magic reflected in my daughter's eyes, and experiencing my own excitment at my first visit, I realized what had to be done.

    One we got home, I started making some arrangements, getting my affairs in order, and saving up a bit of money... ...and only a few months later, I packed my car and headed south. Found an apartment and started my new career at Disney. Times aren't always easy, as im sure we all know, and I never really saved enough money in the first place, but I have no regrets, and a whole more fun.

    I just stumbled upon this website, and read a few postings, and I want to thank everyone for their posts. Cast Members like myself really appreciate the recognition, or just the knowledge that we made a difference for others. So I wanted to say hello, and thank you.

    Hi Jason, That was pretty bold, moving to Florida to be part of the magic. Impressive, and way to go after that dream. Welcome to the helpful forums, hope to see you "out and about" in the threads.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
