    Hello from Adelaide, AU!

    Hi everyone,

    Thought I'd join the forum and give everyone a big howdy, as I've been listening to the WDW Radio Podcast since late 2010. From the beginning - I am one crazy gal!! (Also, if anyone wants to know how to pronounce my name, it's like saying "Eh-lenny" - there's a fun one for y'all to try at home!)

    I'm now a little over a year behind in the podcast, but I'm having fun listening to it!! My fiance thinks I'm a nutter for doing it, but I need to know it all for my one day trip (hopefully honeymoon!!) to Walt Disney World.

    I'm a Disney fan and have started up a little collection, albeit an expensive one, cause it costs so much to ship here!!

    Hopefully I'll talk to you all real soon!

    Welcome fellow Adelaidean!!

    I'm so excited to have another Aussie here ( and from my hometown!)

    You'll fit right in here, everyone is so lovely, and welcoming! I'm actually going to WDW in September for my honeymoon!

    I love buying stuff off the Disneystore.com, but yes, the shipping is highway robbery!

    What do you collect?

    Hi Evilduckqueen,

    Thank you for the welcome, fellow Adelaideian!! You'll have to fill me in on your honeymoon, sounds awesome!!

    I started collecting Christmas decorations last year, bought mostly through eBay, but the shipping was far outweighing the cost of the decorations... But hopefully, I'll be able to get to WDW to get my own!!

    See you round the forums! And if we get enough of us from ADL, we could hold our own Disney meets!!

    I used to buy stuff at the Disney Store, when we had one at Marion. Now it's mostly eBay, Amazon, and The Disney Store.com, when I can afford to buy enough to justify paying $64.50 for shipping...

    I would LOVE a Adelaide meet up! I'd settle for 3 people right now

    I only found out last night from my fiance that there was a Disney and a WB store at Marion. How did I not know this prior to then? Sadface

    Even if there was a Disney Store in Melbourne or Sydney, the shipping would be halved or quartered!!

    Are there many more of us South Aussies on the WDW Radio Forums?

    The Disney Store used to be where Imagine If is now, and the WB store, was across from that, where I think is the Colorado store. Sadly, they both closed down about 10 years ago I just wish we had other options of shipping costs. Instead of priority international, I would be happy to wait a few weeks for my items to arrive, if it meant cheaper shipping. It's seriously ridiculous.

    There seem to be a few other Aussies, but I don't know which part they are from, and they don't seem to post very often. Which is sad! From what I've noticed, I seem to be the only constant Aussie poster here.
