Have read through and more than a few apply. I've recently been made the proud dad of a soon to be Disney loving little girl. Ever since the idea hit me I cannot stop reading the disboards and working on planning our first trip together (currently around Wine and cheese festival in 2012). She was too young to enjoy it but that didn't stop me from making Pooh her first movie!

Thanks for having me if you will.

I am from LA (Lower Alabama), a small town called Uriah, we have 4 kids(3 boys and 1 wonderful little princess) and we are planning on the first week of June 2012. This will be an anniversary present to the wife and a early birthday gift for the princess.

Can't believe it took me this long to find you !

I am from Southern NB, Canada, and have a DW, DS (17) and a DD (12).

We are going next Sunday. I am the planner in the family and this is our 4th trip. We've done Christmas (my favourite), Summer (HOT) and early fall (still Hot).

My son is a horror show freak. I thought aboyt taking him too MNSSHP (done that b4 as well), but somehow he found out about HHN. Guess where we are going?

He's graduatung, I am 40 and feel 60 (darn arthritis). Love to golf, but only get out occassionally. Daughter is in that " Daddy can I have..." stage. (I will resist, I will resist, I will resist..I never resist ) Easier toi give in then deal with demon daughter.

Hope to be able to join the club!

Chris

Hi Dis-Dads. I want in!!!! DVC member since 2007, but have been going to the World since the year it opened.

Does anyone remember the covered area in Epcot at the entrance to the World Showcase where they had video phones to make dinner ressies?

Likely going back next August with DW, DS, DS and DD.

Dis-holic seeks Dis Dad Disboard membership

Hello, everyone. My name is Tim, and I am a Disney-holic. I'm not looking for any 12-step program, unless it's the last 12 steps that lead to the EPCOT turnstiles!

I have reviewed the criteria and, while so many apply to me, I would like to propose a slight amendment to #97. I have a standing deal with my wife that we can visit Disney MORE THAN ONCE every year as long as we DO NOT take the kids on one of the trips! Hey, they're teenagers and they still slow us down.

I'm already a member on Facebook. I can't believe it took me so long to get here, but I got here as quick as I could. Just in time to stand clear of the doors.

The DIS Dad's Club Criteria:

Your passion for Disney equals that of a 7 year old kid.
You have a wife that thinks you are a big kid.
You get more excited than your kids when a trip to WDW is planned (or the excitement at least equals that of your kids).
You planned your next Disney trip the day after returning from Disney World.
Your eyes start to water with tears of joy when you see your kids having a great time at WDW (and you secretly try to dry your eyes).
Your portfolio includes stock in Disney.
You have friends and family that do not understand why you vacation in WDW every year (or at least talk about doing it).
You have Disney songs on your MP3 player.
You have Disney Fonts and Icons as well.
You have Disney knicknacks all over your "man cave/dude room/office."
You drink your coffee from one of your multiple Disney mugs.
You have an Animated Mickey Watch.
You have Goofy slippers, Mickey PJs and a lot of other Disney clothing.
You have Disney Character ties to wear (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc.).
You have a Disney background on your laptop with a count down calender on it.
All of your family photos seem to be taken at WDW.
You have a disney CD in your car or truck right now.
You have trivia contests in the car with your wife like "name all the attractions at Epcot going counter-clockwise."
When you and your wife are reading the DISboards she asks you "what is ToT, RnRR, EE and BTMRR, and you know the answers.
You sold your Disney stock so you could buy into the DVC.


I could naturally go on and on, like the rest of you!

Please count me in?
Except for 2 items, this list describes me exactly. Please let me join
Just went to facebook and joined the club there. this sounds great
