    Post Status: No longer lurking (I'm new too)

    Hello everyone, my name is Mario. I am DH with two young boys. Ive been listening to Lou for about two years now and am consumed with all things WDW. I was converted when my boys were born and started visiting the parks a few years later. I guess my favorite park is MK, I never really thought about it, but I always schedule 2 days every visit (as opposed to 1 for the others).

    I started my own blog that is a place really to release all the pent up WDW ideas in my head regarding my upcoming trip. I do hope to be able to give something back to the community, such as the Maps I am stitching together so that I too can have a life size map of the parks like Mr. Disney did. In addition, I am an planner and organizer by trade so I am always looking to share the knowledge.

    Of course, one of my dreams is to either move to Orlando (have WDW in my backyard) and/or become financially independent to permanently suspend reality by putting down the welcome mat on property.

    I am glad to be a part of such warm and open community. Thank you all.

    Welcome Mario! I too have dreamed of owning a piece of the Magic some day, but in reality all the planning that goes into a trip to WDW is part of it. It builds anticipation. I'm sure if I lived close by and could go every day that I would still enjoy it, but probably not as much. Glad you joined us!

    You are so right! I have cracked opened my spreadsheet at minimum once a day. Although all my ADRs are setup 5 months head; Parks on what day, etc.. I keep trying to plan more, learn something new to add (wishes dessert party back by then? Online reservation for private cabana's)...

    On second thought, I'll give all that up to live the dream!
