    Greetings and Salutations

    New to the forum. I started listening to the podcast not long before my trip in '07, had to fall off from listening right after my trip in '08, but I'm back and busy catching up on all the episodes that I've missed. I love the video Daily Diaries, brings a little nostalgia back.

    I've been married for 10 years this year and have 2 boys, ages 10 and 9. I started my Disney experiance in '93 with my first trip to Disneyland and have been hooked ever since.

    In fact I faced my major fear of rollercoasters for the first time on The Matahorn on my '07 trip to Disneyland, and when I hit WDW, ended up on a last minute, end of the night dash across the park to hit all the mountains in The Magic Kingdom before we left for the night.(It was our last night at the parks) I even got ****ered into going on Expedition Everest by my youngest. My wife and I were having second thoughts when he looked up at us and said "It's OK, you don't have to go if you don't want to." We looked at each other, and out at the train car(we had already made it that far through the queue) and knew we wouldn't be backing out. The next trip in '08 was the Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror, which I had to ride alone for the first time because my wife thought I was nuts to go on it, but very supportive. It's become a tradition that I go on a ride I was not sure of and didin't ride on the next trip. This goes for my oldest son also, who would be content riding The Haunted Masions and Pirates of the Caribbean the whole time. lol Next ride up, Aerosmith!

    My wife and I even exchanged new wedding rings in front of the castle at night (that's the pic in my avatar).

    Just thought I'd share a few of my cherished memories from my trips, and those are only the tip of the iceberg of what makes WDW and Disneyland so special to me.

    Sorry for the long windedness of my post. I hope to get to know you all better through the forum and perhaps be able to take part in some of the meet-ups at some time.
