    Smile New but not new - well, sort of!

    Hi everyone! I registered a long time ago ('05?) but have only been a lurker since. I have been an avid wdwradio podcast listener so I thought it was time to check out the Forums.

    I am a big fan of Walt Disney and a lover of all things WDW. I made my first visit to the World when I was only 6 and the MK was only 6 months (yes, I'm that old! LOL). After a visit in '85 and '91, I went for a long unhappy stretch visit-less. Until I became a mom and my wonderful DH suggested we take our girls (then 5 and 2-1/2) to WDW in '03. Since then, we've become DVC members and have visited WDW as a family 8 times, 9 this coming Easter!

    I have many Disney books, among them Lou's fantastic trivia books (which my whole family LOVES). And I've become a huge fan of the wdwradio podcast - I'm, in fact, in the process of listening to all the older podcasts a few at a time - they just make me happy!

    While I've lurked here off and on, I decided that perhaps it was time to start joining in on the fun - it seems like such a friendly group
