Illinois Fan...Anybody Else???

Hi everyone! My name is Jenny Sperandeo (can't figure out how to change my profile name). I'm 44, married to Joe, 45, and we have 4 great kids; Matt(21), Tim(17), Ali(13) and Ashley(13). We all LOVE Disney and we live in Oswego. Our last family trip was this past July. We stayed 5 nights at AoA. Joe and I are going back in March of 2014 for an "alone" trip at POFQ. Sooooo excited! This will be my 3oth trip.

You will have the BEST time! My 30th trip is coming up in March, and I'm still experiencing new things. Don't let it overwhelm you, and don't feel like you have to squish everything into one trip, BECAUSE you can go back!!! Yay!!!

Greetings from C-U!

My ds (13) and I are Illini football fans, even when it's not so easy to be, LOL.

Looking forward to our 4th visit to WDW, hopefully in early summer 2014.

I - N - I! Another C-U resident and U of I alumni, as well as a huge Disney fan! I'm a single mom with two kids, one in his sophomore year at Florida State University (no shortage of great football there) and a daughter who just applied to the University of Central Florida. This may be my last winter and snow season!

Well I didn't grow up in Illinois and I went to a smaller university in Texas, but since moving to Illinois, I have adopted the Illini as my team (with help from some pressure put on by Illini family members). My wife and I currently reside in Carlinville, Illinois, which I describe to people as being about halfway between St. Louis and Springfield.

We were actually in Disney during the week of New Year's and I'm guessing that the CM who was playing Woody at the time in Pixar Place is either from Illinois or went to UI. He saw the Illinois football shirt I wearing, pointed to the block I logo and gave me a big thumbs up and a high-five. Kinda neat.
