    Greetings from Michigan!

    Hi all! Been listening to the Podcast for awhile now. I think I started in episode 20-something. Love the Site and all of the great info everyone has to share.

    My first time down was back in the early 70's, prior to 76. I was a HUGE 20'000 Leagues fan and grow wistful everytime I see the Nautilus in Pooh's Playful Place. My first return trip was in 76. I then had to wait till '87 and got to enjoy Epcot in it's prime. (Horizons forever!) From 94 on, I've been going every couple of years. I lucked out and got to work in a very tertiary way on Alien Encounter when it was in development before DisneyQuest opened. Good times.

    I work as a Technical Director for a performing arts center and credit my early exposure to WDW for one of the reasons I do what I do today.

    We're going back in June (my Wife and I, and my 3 sons, 8, 5 and 5.). Seeing WDW through my kids eyes has been one of the greatest things I've been able to share with them. My big guy is tall enough this year, that I think all of the attractions will be open to him. It's going to be a big trip.

    Talk to ya soon,
