View Full Version : Hello from Maryland

Hello Everyone!

I have been going to WDW since I was in my twenties. I have always love everything Disney but when I went for my first visit I was hooked.

I love to introduce people to the happiness of Disney, especially WDW every chance I get. I have taken friends and family. I took my children for their first visit when they were 2 and 3 yrs old. Just watching their eyes light up gave me more joy than I can put into words.

My family goes to Disney at least every two years. In 2007 we bought into DVC and we call Saratoga Springs our home away from home. I am so happy we did. My kids will be able to go to WDW and have a home there for many years to come and each time they go they will be able to remember the happy memories we've made there in the past. We always drive to WDW since we like to bring our own food and my husband hates to fly!

In August we will be going to celebrate my youngest sons' 14th Birthday. He decided that he wanted to stay at the AKL with a Savahana View. I am planning many surprises for him. This trip will have extra perks since I am retired Navy and I get my ticket free and up to 5 others for my family and friends and also since we will be there for his birthday he will get extra special treatment. Another perk is that my sons' are now old enough to roam the parks on there own so once we arrive they can go off and not have to lug Mom & Dad around with them and vice versa!

Each of us has different things we'd like to do or wishes we'd like to have during our stay. My oldest son wants to go surfing with his Dad at Typhoon Lagoon. He is the risk taker in the family. My Birthday Boy wants to ride the coasters that he was too scared to ride before. My wish is to participate in the Flag Ceremony at MK. As a retired Navy Air Traffic Controller I am very proud of my service and this gives me another opportunity to Salute my Flag (which never gets old)!

My sons' and I love trading pins. In addition to collecting the pins that we love so much we get to meet and make new friends from around the world.

I hope to meet some of you during our stay! If you have any questions or tips for our trip I'd love to chat with you! I love to share tips and stories about Disney. :wave:

Hope to talk to you soon!

I hope you have a great time. I'd love to stay at the Polynesian! Wish I could afford it! It's a beautiful resort.

Thanks :hug2: we're really hoping its worth the money but it looks so beautiful that we've saved a long time for it

Have you ever been there before? The Luau is wonderful. We try to go whenever we visit WDW. You can stay there with DVC points but you can't have it as a home resort. At least not yet.
