    Hello from Minnesota

    Hey everybody.

    I have been a fan of Lou since his last episode of Mousetunes and all through his current show. I have met Lou once and my wife has met him twice. I heard about the cruise his crew will be hosting on the Dream on his last show and faxed my form off last Friday. I hope to be joining Lou and alot of you on the Dream in feb 2011.

    As for me, I am a retail manager who was born and raised in Minnesota. I was not raised a Disney fan. In fact I used to make fun of Disney people... Sorry. Then I met my future wife who comes from a family that loves Disney. While we were planning our wedding I shot down her idea to honeymoon in Disney. After I told my dad he gave me one those slaps in the back of my head and told me that I need to do what she wanted. Like a good son I listened. After I saw how much happiness Disney brought her I slowly warmed up to Disney and became a fan after 2 trips. Now I am the one that plans our trips and counts down the days till our next trip.
    I listen to 6 different Disney podcasts a week and I constantly lurk on many message boards and websites.

    I am looking forward to finally joining this board and maybe cruising with some of you.

    Re: Hello from Minnesota

    Hi, just signed up today....Our flights always connect through minneapolis...thats what caught my eye. LOL From Saskatchewan, Canada, We've flown from Saskatoon/Regina/Minot-Minneapolis-Orlando. We even made the 13.5 hour drive and flew out of Minneapolis this July. My wife and I could fly from there for $100 cheaper for both of us, than for 1 of us from Minot this Nov. with a 5 hour drive... Anyhow...just wanted to say hello.

    Welcome, John.
    I grew up in Minnesota too, but never got to a park till I was in my 20's. Even then, we never got to WDW more than every 4-5 years. Now we live just outside Mickey's backdoor and are annual passholders. It's so much fun to just drop everything and head to a park for a couple of hours.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
