My name is Chris and I am from the UK and came across this wonderful site by accident really. I am registered on a few Disney websites and for various reasons I have never really got too involved in them. However, this site seems a nice size and the posts seem very helpful so I thought i'd give this forum a go.
A little about me then, well my dogs name is Oreo (hence the username) and she is a black labrador cross with a white chest. I wanted to call her something Disney related but never mind.
Last year me and my girlfriend took (our first) trip to Florida together. We have both been before all be it when we were younger and before we met.
I first went in 1992 when I was 5 years old, and I fell in love with the place. It holds a special place for me as it's the first holiday I remember having.
We didn't go back to WDW as a family until 2001. My mom had promised us we would go back and it took her a few years to save but we managed it.
In Oct 2005 I went again but this time it was with my ex girlfriend and her family. They had a Disney timeshare so I only had to find the price of the flights. Less than a year later I went back again this time to witness my mom's wedding to my step dad.
I have been real lucky to be able to go so many times. I really do love the place and it hold special memories for me. I would go back every year if I could but money doesn't allow that sadly.
Dispite my girlfriend saying that the next time we go back will be when we have children, she has this week suggested we start looking for us to go in 2015. Hence why I have registered here.
I know it seems a long way away, but we booked our 2012 trip two years in advance and that flew by and I am hoping this time it will too.
Anyway that's a bit about me, please feel free to ask any questions if you like.
When I get chance I will talk more about where we stayed and what we have done.
Thanks and I look forward to speaking to some of you soon
