Nick. Make sure to post in the current DDC thread here - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2837904 - so that Emma's Dad sees your post and can assign you a member number.

I think I qualify

Well after looking at your list of posible qualifiers I think I fit, I stoped conting when I hit 10. I am a dad from Wisconsin I have traveled to Disney several times since 2008 (including DLR Dec 08, WDW Jan 11, WDW Nov 11, DLR Jan 12) and many times before that. We just closed on our first DVC contract and we have two trips planed this year one in Sept with my mother and one in November with my mother and grandparents. Then there is next year and the return to Disneyland to see Carsland. Well I hope you acept me and I can be all the member I can be.

Hi my name is Jason and I have a Disney adiction that work is getting in the way of.

Thank You

Oh and yes I got married at Broadwalk.

My name is Daniel and I too am addicted to DW. I love taking my entire family to Disney, started doing it in 2006, and will continue to do so. My wife and I plan to retire from our professions after our boys grow up, move to Florida, and get jobs at DW.
My wife and I also have spent two of our last three anniversaries at DW and plan to take a Disney Cruise next year for our 25th.
We are just three long months away from returning to DW with the entire Ginger family including: my wife, 5 sons, 2 of my boys girlfriends, and first grandson. Its going to be a blast to introduce Disney to my grandson (2yoa) and his mom who has never, ever been at DW.
I believe that I am a total DIS dad and would like the privilege to become one of its distinctive members.

My name is Josh and I believe that I fit the description of a Dis Dad. My passion started back in 1997.
I got married and got a son in the process, he was 10 and had never been to Disney. I had been twice as a child (73 and 78) and liked Disney but thought Bush Gardens (Williamsburg)was better. Back in the 70's it was only MK and River Country. I was raised on Disney movies and the last few seasons of 'The Wonderful World of Disney', WDW was fun but was part of a larger trip to FL that included other destinations.
The planning started that spring for a trip that summer and it was my job to handle it. Started looking at rooms and thought onsight sounded like fun so I booked POFQ. That's all the planning I did for that trip.
We arrived at POFQ that summer and something started to click. I bought tickets at check in and ended up with park hoppers with water parks. We went everywhere and did everything (and I didn't have to drive). Parks early in the morning, waterparks for the afternoon and back to the parks at night. We had a blast and bonded more as a 'new' family. I was addicted.
Upon returning I started lurking around Disney sites, planning the next trip. We vacation at other places but agree as a family that WDW is our favorite destination.
We just got back from a trip in March and are planning a trip for summer of 2013.
