Hi David! Glad to have you on board
Hello everyone! I'm David from Texas and just wanted to say hi! I've been listening to the podcasts for awhile now and just like everyone else on the forums, I can't get enough Disney!!! There, I said it! My wife said that the first step was admitting that I have a problem!!! I haven't visited the World since 1999 and I'm dying to get back. I've been married for six years to a beautiful woman who, I'm sad to say, has never been to any of the Disney Parks. So she doesn't fully understand my obsession, although she tries.
We have a four year old daughter whom I have completely brainwashed! She already has the first three attractions mapped out for the Magic Kingdom: Peter Pan, Haunted Mansion, then Pirates! We were planning a trip to stay at the Beach Club in November of this year, hence the member name, but discovered in January that we are going to have another little girl this year! So we are aiming for 2013 after all the FL expansion is done!!!
I'm glad to be here and again , I'm David and Im a Disney-holic!
Previous trips: Disneyland '87, '88, '90x2
Disneyland Paris '94- Sequoia Lodge
WDW '95-Dixie Landings, '96-Disney Institue, '97-Caribbean Beach, '98-Old Key West, '99-Coronado Springs
Hi David! Glad to have you on board
"You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway."
Hey David!! Great to have you with us, and congrats on the baby girl on the way!
You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
from a fellow Texan and congrats on the upcoming new addition to your family AND our WDW Radio family, since I know you'll teach this one well too!
I know from experience how hard it is to have to delay Disney trips, but it usually works out for the best (Fantasyland expansion good case in point! )
And, I come from a slightly different perspective...
Those that don't "get" Disney are the ones that need the 12-step program...!!!

But I took her again in 2000 and she seemed to love it too. Just not as much as I do still, but at least she looks forward to going now. We just took our son last September (2010) and he's hooked too. He wants to know when we're going back. It's been nine months and he still watches the Disney vacation planning DVD and talks about the rides. Sometimes we play "Disney World" and pretend we're on the rides (a new Disney junkie, right?). I plan on making Disney World an every other year trip (don't want to make my wife nuts!) since there is officially two Disney nuts in the house.
Good to see you on the boards. By the way, this is a great resource to find out information about what to do at the parks, or what the parks will do for you, before you go. Ask any question and most likely someone will have an answer.
P.S. Congratulations on the new (soon to be) baby!
Hey David! Always great to see a fellow Disney-holic on the boards. I've gone a few months without a dose of actual Disney park magic (I know I shouldn't be one to complain, being so close to the parks and getting to go frequently, but once you get used to it....), and I'm starting to jones pretty hard!
I try to remind myself that it's super humid, hot, and crowded right now, and it makes me feel better.
Also, congratulations on the new addition!
Hi David- Welcome to the boards! We would love to invite you to chat which runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays . While the time set is 9 EST until 11 EST, most people don't show up until 10 EST. But it is fun to "talk" to people about your love of disney, the weather, or whatever we end up talking about. Go to the ribbon at the top that says Chat- pick which one you want to do (both go to the same place) and wait around to talk.
And welcome- I'm further west of you in Texas but man is it hot around here!
Hi David! A fellow East Texan here! Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! We also have a 4 yr old --- she will be going to the World for her first time in November. She has been planning her attractions as well. I hope your family has a great time whe y'all go in 2013.

Greetings and congratulations! We have 2 girls also and they are going for the first time in September Julia will be almost 5 and Lydia will be 3.
Welcome to the boards. Hope to see you in the forums.
Congrats on the baby.
