Yes, Jen, I did respond to the poll. (Happy belated Canada Day, by the way. I was winging my way back from Halifax on Tuesday afternoon. Photos to follow...)

Sha, I managed to see a whale. A fin whale, to be precise. Wow, was it ever big... And no, I did not get covered in whale snot although I now know how to look for whales out in the open water.

Happy Fourth of July to our friends south of the border!

14. favorite Disney character?

15. least favorite Disney character?

Did I miss these questions from last time? I don't remember seeing them at all. . .

1. when is your birthday? March 14, 1961

2. the 1st thing you do when you get to WDW? Usually check in at the hotel. In May, I went to AK and rode Expedition Everest first. Last August we went to Epcot first and rode Test Track

3. favorite park? I think its a tie between Animal Kingdom (love animals) and Epcot (love the World Showcase)

4. what is your height? 5'5"

5. favorite food/cuisine? Wow, I love fish and seafood the most, but I love the flavors of Japan and Africa very much.

6. in what year did you first visit the world? 2007, but if Disneyland Resort counted then I have been visiting Disney parks since I was a very small child.

7. favorite Disney memory? I make new memories every time I go, but my most recent favorite memory is my son (15 year old) and I on the Mark Twain Steamship at DLR. Not something we normally do and we had an absolute wonderful time taking in all the sites while cruising around the rivers of America

8. favorite Disney ride? Rock n Roller Coaster. . .followed closely by Expedition Everest.

9. least favorite ride? Least favorite means I still like it right? That would have to be IASW

10. are you a pin collector/trader?? Just bought my first set of pins

11. Come on tell us the truth! The real reason your last relationship didn't work-out was because they didn't understand your love and affection for the Mouse, right?? Wish I could use that as an excuse. . .

12. when was your last trip to the World? May 2008

13. when is your next trip to the World? August 2008 followed by December 2008

14. favorite Disney character? Tinkerbell, followed closely by Cinderella

15. least favorite Disney character? I am not a big fan of the Pooh characters. . .since they weren't originally Disney characters, they don't seem like Disney characters to me.

16. Describe a dream Disney weekend get-away: For a weekend at WDW, the dream getaway would be at BC or Boardwalk Inn with most of my time spent at Epcot and DHS. For Disneyland weekends, I just need to stay somewhere close. . .you can do everything in a weekend.

17. Own room, share with friend or group of friends? That would depend on what I was doing. If going on a singles trip and meeting others, I usually prefer my own room.

18. How long you are interested in staying? (2, 3, 7 days, etc) I think a minimum stay for me would be 5 days due to airfare from the Western end of the US.

19. Hotel preference ??? (Value ?, Moderate ?, Deluxe ?) Not sure of my preference yet. I have only stayed at ASMu and Pop so far. In August I am staying at POR and BWI, in December I am thinking about AKL. I guess it would depend on who I am going with and/or who I am meeting. I do like the Epcot location though

20. Is there anything that you have never done at WDW that you want to do with a the group? There are several things I have yet to do. . .an Illuminations cruise, a Segway tour, an early morning tour on Kilimanjaro Safaries. . .etc.

1. when is your birthday? April 4, 1964

2. the 1st thing you do when you get to WDW? shed a tear of joy ..... seriously !!

9. least favorite ride? the Magical Express to the airport

10. are you a pin collector/trader?? I am not so much, but my kids are !

11. Come on tell us the truth! The real reason your last relationship didn't work-out was because they didn't understand your love and affection for the Mouse, right?? That had a bit to do with it -- I just have to face facts that I picked a jerk.

12. when was your last trip to the World? Nov/Dec 2007

13. when is your next trip to the World? Maybe Sept 2008 and definiately Nov/Dec 2008

14. favorite Disney character? Mickey and Humphrey runs a close second !

15. least favorite Disney character? not sure

16. Describe a dream Disney weekend get-away:Go down with my mom and my kids for a few days, have my mom take my kids at home, and like magic -- LOTS of friends (maybe even a special someone)show up and get the "party" started, lots of parks, fun and making a lifetime of memories !!! Once it was all over, start planning the next trip while on the plane ride home !!!!!!!

17. Own room, share with friend or group of friends?who knows now ?? I have met some many wonderful people - as long as we are all close by, it doesn't matter to me now.

18. How long you are interested in staying? (2, 3, 7 days, etc)at least 5 days

19. Hotel preference ??? (Value ?, Moderate ?, Deluxe ?)value because I don't plan on using it very much other than to sleep a few hours, shower and change clothes

20. Is there anything that you have never done at WDW that you want to do with a the group? The tours and slushies in France !!

I think that sums it all up. Can't wait for next year !!!!

LMAO I think you answered some of them.... I pulled these couple out after talking with you last night. The things you have done are cool (that you were telling me about... Willie Aimes ) and we have to talk to that boss about September! and the slushies!

Will email you a moment! was great chatting with you last night too... be fun with the planning etc. Knowing how big this has gotten is cool and really great to look forward to even though there are other trips in between
