Some might consider my DOB bad as it has a few of those old 6's in it but I kind of like it when it pops up somewhere. Especially if it involves presents!!

Enjoy your birthday!

Happy Birthday!
Thank you all so much. It was a good day.

Muushka, I was thinking about 50's Prime Time Cafe all day, but I settled for a place in town called Jungle Burger.

The highlight of the day was a phone call and my son, dil and the grandkids sang happy birthday to me!

I feel like this cyber-place is like a happy little hang-out where we like-minded Disney goobers can be ourselves without being judged!

I've started making a bunch of different lists and putting them in a folder. I sat my husband down the other night. Said I wanted to discuss something with him. When I whipped out my tentative spreadsheet showing our week at Disney in June, he looked at me like I'd grown another head!

At least you folks who are married to other Disney-philes know that your spouses understand you.

If I disappear from the board, you'll know that my DH has had me committed due to excessive Disney Joy!

I just enjoy coming on here and hearing from everyone!
I am in the process of catching up on this thread and just had to comment on this. It really takes me back to my early days of obsessive planning and excess Disney joy! My DH's role in those days was driver, packer of car, and keeper of maps. Fast forward to the present and he is on My Disney Experience asking me what the People Mover is called now so he can look at it on his iPad. We have gone through years of friends and family asking why we keep going back and now they just don't ask anymore. It is really nice to have an online community who understands and doesn't judge-especially when it comes to obsessive planning and excessive Disney joy!! (tears when I finally saw the Christmas tree in the WL lobby and every time I see the castle at night)

My daughter just asked me this same question the other day!! My only guess is that he was very tall for his age and maybe matured early? poetic (lyrics) license I guess. It's very odd that my DD asked this same question around the same time. (lurking perhaps?)

We've eaten there for dinner and were in the main dining room. We enjoyed our meal and will be coming back next May. I enjoyed the Belgian beer as well.

Disney Loving Iowan: Yes, I am a life-long Rangers fan. Grew up in NY and have never even been tempted to change my hockey allegiance. Baseball is a little different. Still love the Yankees, but have become an avid Nationals fan-think it's because I have been to so many of their games and am so happy to have baseball in the DC area!
Inkmaham: (hope I spelled that right) I have been in rehab for almost a year now from a back problem. I would keep doing PT as long as your insurance company will cover it. It is painful, I know, but it is so important to keep moving all the parts you don't want to move because of pain! Good luck with the bike. I will be in the market for one soon. (must get rid of the treadmill first- turns out it has actually been bad for my back!!)
bagsmom: When my DD was little I "studied" the Unofficial Guide's fear factor ratings for kids and took notes and discussed each ride with her beforehand. She hated sudden loud noises, but rode the Humunga Kowabunga slide at 7! You know your child(ren) best! Keep in mind that they will also change over the years and may be all smiles on a ride that scared them silly at a younger age. The one thing that has stayed consistent with my now 26 year-old DD is hating anything in 3D! (and Indiana Jones for some reason)

Thanks KathyM for the advice to book BoG even if I am indecisive. Will get up at 6 am on my ADR day!

If anyone finds out if the refurb at VWL is going to be an ongoing one, not just those particular rooms, please let me know. I am just hoping that it isn't going on when we are there in early August. Not sure how I feel about those laminate floors either. Probably better for allergies, but worse for noise.

Thanks everyone for this wonderful place to hang out.

Thanks! We have a couple of beer-lovers in our group, so I am sure they will appreciate being able to enjoy beer in the MK.

Hmmmmm -- you are in my state! It's nice to be close enough to drive to the best place in the world!!!! We aren't DVC owners.. we're just going to rent points for the first time this year. We are so excited!

Renovations.... well, I am a spaz, so I will try not to think about the potential disruption of magic (ha ha) -- but I imagine they'd do everything possible to avoid disturbing people, wouldn't they? And for the most part, everyone will be out and about, right? So I don't need to worry about this, right?

I've ordered a few more Disney books... so fun to read!

So exciting! Welcome Home and Welcome to our groupie thread. We may be somewhat biased here - but you'v bought into the best resort on property.

Page 1 of the thread lists travel dates, birthdays and cruise dates. If you'd like yours added, just let jimmytammy know your travel dates. Birthdays are kept current by 2Kats. Instructions for adding the moosie to your signature are also on page one.

Again, welcome!

bluecastle, a great big WELCOME to you, too!
We weren't able to get into BOG for our December trip for dinner but did enjoy a delicious lunch. If you're unsuccessful getting a dinner ressie don't despair and plan lunch instead.

Well we may have different favorite teams but I'm sure we can find some other teams that we have the same feelings about!
