    Just wanted to say a quick hello! (Finally) I discovered this forum through Tapatalk. I'm a guy in his mid-30's who grew up on Disney, kinda faded during my teen years and in my mid-20's I married a Disney nut who helped me rekindle the love and magic. We've been to Disneyland twice together and in March will be taking our 3 year-old for his first visit. He's obviously being introduced to tons of Disney and he can identify most of the "main" Disney characters by sight now. :)
    Besides Disney I have a passion for music, sports and video games!

    Hello, welcome to Secrets! I'm so glad you found us.

    I'm the Disney nut in our house and I've sort of converted my husband :lol:

    Your 3 year old will love Disneyland especially as he knows the main characters.

    So, jump in and chat, we talk about all sorts, what sports an music do you like?

    Hi and welcome to a very friendly forum. Your 3 year old will have the time of his life. Where abouts are you staying and please tell us what you have in mind with regard to park visits. We'll all be very envious but enjoy living the journey with you.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! Wendy: I like football and Basketball the most, but if I'm in the mood I'll also watch baseball and hockey. (My pro teams are the 49ers and Jazz) Music I like a lot of different genres, I mainly just stay away from rap. Favorite overall group is Metallica but my collection is very diverse, Garth Brooks, Frank Sinatra, Rihanna, Rick Astley, etc.
    Piglet: I don't know where we're staying the first night (wife booked it) but after that we'll switch to the HoJo for the rest of our stay. Doing 4 days in the parks and we're gearing this trip mainly around what will be best for our son, so likely we'll be in Fantasyland and Toontown a bunch.

    Welcome along, DCD! Good to have you with us! :yes: You surely do have quite diverse taste! Looking forward to hearing all about your plans.

    What HoJo's? We stayed at a HoJo's once, but that was years and years ago. It was on Irlo Bronson (probably somewhere around 1998 or so?). I remember it being quite clean, with helpful staff, and close to WDW. :yes:

    Tink: We're staying at the HoJo right down the street from the entrance to Disneyland. Heard plenty about it so we figured this trip we'd give them a shot.
