    Talking I'm new! :)

    Hiya! *waves*

    My name is Kristen, and I'm new to the Forum but not to the WDW Radio Show. I have been listening to the podcast for a few months now and finally decided it was time to get in on the forum action. LOL!

    I'm a HUGE Disney fan, and have been since I was about 4 years old, when I went on my first Disney trip. I grew up in Florida, taking a day trip to Disney a couple of time a year. However, when I got older I moved away, and now live in Minnesota. I have never stayed at a Disney resort and have not visited the World for the past 5 years. I will be turning 30 in March 2015, so my goal is to save enough money for me, my boyfriend, and my best friend's family to celebrate my birthday at Walt Disney World.
    Anywho, I'm so happy to meet all of you and I look forward to talking lots of Disney with you all. Yes, even you Lou.

    Lots of Disney love,
    Kristen

    Well hello and welcome to the family Kristen

    Sounds like that trip in 2015 is going to be filled with Disney magic...I personally think the waiting and planning for a WDW trip is as good as the actual vacation

    You're going to have so much fun researching....oh and by the way...once you've stayed at a Disney resort you'll be hooked!!!

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I'm especially excited for this trip because I'm planning on it being for a week where I will be completely immersed in Walt Disney World for the first time ever. And, what better way to do it than celebrating my 30th birthday? Mind if I follow you on Twitter? My Twitter is @disneygirl85

    If you go to the 'User CP' section you can add a signature, photo, user details etc.

    Most counters have the website address somewhere on the counter itself. Most of the websites will have instructions on how to add it to your signature....I always have to read several forum threads when I update mine to remember how to do it....usually it's just trial and error with me

    Re: I'm new! :)

    Welcome Kristen. I haven't yet been down for my birthday, either. It's in February and an awesome time to hit the parks since the crowds are low. IF you can stand the chilly weather. I might consider doing that in a few years, once I switch out my Christmas trip for a fall/Halloween trip. Otherwise, going in December and then again in February would be overkill.

    Again, welcome!

    I think celebrating my birthday is the perfect WDW vacation for me. Maybe after that one I will plan to visit for Christmas? Hmmmm....the only thing I would miss is the real snow we get up here in Minnesota. But, Christmas at WDW would be soooo much fun! Imagine all the goodies I could buy. Have you spent Christmas at WDW? If so, what's it like? I see you live in NY, so did you miss the snow?

    Re: I'm new! :)

    I've never spent Christmas itself at Disney. To me, it's more important to be with extended family than to be at WDW on the day itself. Plus, from the horror stories I hear about the crowds, that is probably the very LAST place I'd choose to be. I go every year during the second week of the month, and only stay five days. After that, I'm fine for another year. As for the snow, I got POUNDED last year. Storm on top of storm on top of storm. Nothing had a chance to melt before the next round hit us. And for NYC, that's fairly unusual. It seemed as if Mother Nature really had it in for Staten Island, and we wound up having the highest snowfall count in the region. Why Great Kills of all the areas in all the boroughs, I don't know. But out town really got hammered. Though I'm sure you get more than your share in MN, too. Haven't been to St. Paul, though I did spend four days in Minneapolis for work, but that was a while ago.
