Did that work?
Lovely thank you for sharing, she is gorgeous.
I love the fairy dress and the wellington boots
thank you Vikki!!
She is gorgy! Look at that smile!!!
Thank you. She did some modelling for a friend who owns a fancy dress company and was given those....the wellies were her idea though
What a pretty baby!!! I LOVE the boots (seriously! She's a child after my own heart)!
Thank you so much for sharing her photo with us Vikki!
Oh what the heck...
I have been reading the posts on the thread...and thinking about how this place is and has been an important place for me to visit like minded friends. We have shared so much over the years, both the good and the bad, and many times while having not actually meeting any of you feel that I sort of know you. It is kind of funny, I can hear a lot of you "speaking" through your written words and a lot of you sure do talk funny....(felt like I was saying that like Gearge W.). I share what I experience here with my family (brother and daughter) and with my lovely wife Sally.
My brother was happy to raise his glass on our last trip there to toast a man he never met, but felt sort of like he did. That was my pal Mick.
I am feeling pretty low thinking about the passing of Ann and how Dave is holding up. So I preface my response with that. We kind of bare our souls here, why NOT know a bit more about the ins and outs?
So again thanks to our wonderful mods....for starting this place and for keeping it running.
I will start with a screen name that is way to long to write down each time...Watchinherskip.
I took the name and used it on at least 3 other Disney sits on my way here. I got a chance to meet a lot of you back in the day and am so glad to still know you. The name came from the vision of watching my then 6 year old daughter Alex bounding down the walkway from the futuristic part of Epcot towards he world showcase. She was on her way to an autograph signing with a huge pen and her autograph book. She is now 21, a senior in college, and as big a Disney freak as there is!
I guess I came by my love for Disney honestly. It started at the 1964 World's Fair in NY. I got a chance to experience all the wonderful rides (Ford, GM, IASW, etc) and was hooked. I think I was clinically depressed upon leaving the place and not having the option of going back again.
My DW and I had our first trip to WDW in 1987 and stayed at the Disney Inn. It was fantastic. It seemed like overnight the whole resort went into holiday mode. We woke up on the second day to find a christmas tree had been set up outside our door. The whole park went into christmas mode overnight. I was so impressed.
After many trips, we still look forward to our next one.
Aside from my DW and DD we have a really cool dog named Cody. He was a rescue dog from a housing project near my wife's school. We have lived in our two story house since 1988. We like it.
I just finally finished my master's degree from Penn State in December. Funny thing I have been a teacher for over 30 years and actually can retire any time. DD is at school and my job as a planetarium director and science specialist for the district is a good situation, so not in any hurry to retire (although DW and I have talked about going to work for Disney when we do!)
I am a big fan of whitewater kayaking and hope to keep that up as long as my old body will allow.
Yes another original name - I'm Sam
I am very lucky to be married to a fantastic man Andrew, who is equally a wonderful father to our little people - Megan 10, Gethin 6. We do actually have knicknames for the kids which is Meg - Chickenduck, Gethin - Mr Magoo, so if you see those names you'll know who I'm talking about.
We live just over the border from Chester in North Wales, although I originate from Purton & Wootton Bassett (those of you in the UK will probably know Wootton Bassett or Royal Wootton Bassett due to our fallen troops coming through there and the crowds who came out to pay their respects). Wootton Bassett was where I met my DH, who was with the RAF at Lyneham. He is originally from Ammanford, near Swansea in South Wales, hence the welsh names for our children. We moved here after Andrew left the RAF and now works for Unilever.
I've worked many years in the health & leisure industry starting as a lifeguard until eventually managing a Golf and Leisure Club. I also had a stint as a wedding co-ordinator whilst I was trying to get pregnant with our first little person.
When I first had my children I did run baby signing franchise but eventually gave up after having to compete with the many hundreds of baby and toddler classes in the area. I do still run a private class at a private nursery which is fantastic and love seeing the babies and toddlers doing british sign language before many of them can speak. The other great thing is the Nursery Manager is as equally Disney mad as me and on our nights out all we talk about is Disney, she even got married there.
I now run my own diet and fitness business where I teach classes from aerobics to Zumba and I also run a free slimming club along side the classes. I have a wonderful bunch of ladies who have been with me for the past 6 years some as Disney mad as me, some not as mad but very understanding.
I have wrote this earlier on Chit Chat, you are a fab group of people and I am blessed to be part of it. For me this site isn't just about Disney and Florida but much more.
My name is Mike, Aka Disney Fan Im not much of a writer .I live in New England with the
Pilgrims LoL With my wife of 30 yrs .My daughter lives and goes to collage in Fla. We have
been going to Disney 2 or 3 times a year since 1982. My car knows the way it takes us 24 hrs
we got the Disneybug bad. We have seen the good and the bad (fastpasses and the dinning plan).
I love to read the post and learn about Disney .Its hard to talk to people about Disney most people
do get it . On this site we are all one big family always helping each other out.
Ooooh Purton? Dh grew up there, lived down Hoggs Lane, wonder if you know him! When did you live in Lyneham? We were there from 1992-1996 and from 1998 to 2001, small world LOL
Just been reading this thread its the best ever, I love reading about everyone
Great thread this one anyone else out there?
Ooh, I thought I'd responded to this so here we go. My name is Val and I live in the North East of Scotland after working and living in London till I retired. I now work part time up here and LOVE IT. I have been to Disney about 9 or 10 times and still get those butterflies when we land. Have stayed mostly in Disney but a couple of times off-site (which just didn't compare to being on-site). Love the American people, favourite resort is Beach Club and since we discovered this I don't really want to go anywhere else but there although if that was full I'd go for the Boardwalk. Thanks

Hello, I'm Lauren and my username is a tribute to my late father and bestest friend whose name was ukwdwnut.
My dad introduced me to this site many years ago as he was part of the admin.
We are a family nuts about disney and were fortunate enough to go every other year. We were planning a trip to go following my dads lung transplant but unfortunately he never got the chance to go so we are planning a trip in his memory.
I own 2 beauty salons and am in the process of opening a hair salon which I love with all my heart! I have lovely staff and customers and recently won 'best new company' business award which I'm very proud of
I have been with my partner for over a year but have known each other forever, we are currently looking to buy a house. Fortunately he loves disney too, he took me to see lion king in theatre for my birthday on Saturday as it was the first disney film we watched together as kids! he taught me how to do an impression of mickey mouse when we were little haha!
I cannot wait to show him around wdw as he's never been and to share all our favourite places.
My favourite disney memory is seeing the castle for the first time and collecting all the pressed pennys on our first trip. my favourite park is hollywood studios.
Hello, everyone! I've been trolling this (and other) Disney messageboards for several days now, collecting my very own list of "secrets" for our next trip, and finally decided to make my own profile.
I'm 23, a lifelong Disnerd, and last year, my husband and I spent our honeymoon at Disney World. I feel like my inner child is about 7 years old, and I love Disney because I don't have to be afraid to let it show!
Magic Kingdom will always be my favorite park. I've only stayed in the Contemporary Resort (stayed there twice), but on our next trip we're planning to try out the Art of Animation Resort, and I am very excited!
The trip we're planning for next year will be my 6th time at Disney World.
And to Secrets!
Now that you're here and have plans to go back, why not grab yourself a countdown for your signature. You can get one here.
Anyway, welcome to the site. We're delighted you decided to join us.
Tom macwave:... self appointed Assistant Cruise Director. )

I plan to grab a countdown from somewhere, but I can't just yet as we haven't pinned down an exact date yet, just a month!
