Excited to be part of this

Have just discovered this board. Going to WDW with the family in a couple of months. I'm a former cast member and character from Disneyland and spent 6 great years there. I would love to help out with my insider knowledge.

Change signature font size?

Hi!

I'd like to change the font in my signature, but every time I try to cut & paste to do this, it reverts back to no formatting. I've searched for a prior post about this, but only see things about timers. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've been a DIS-er for a long time, but can seem to figure this one out! Thanks!

Question Trip Planning

I am a 51 year old man and love Walt Disney World. My wife of 30 years and my now 18 year old daughter will be there again for 2 weeks this July. We have been there for 2 weeks every 2 years since she was 4 years old. As the saying goes, life is always better when you have a Disney vacation planned. Of course, you need to plan at least 6 months out in order to make dining reservations at the best restaurants and of course plan your park visits as well. What I just dont understand, and I hope someone out there can shed some sensible light on this subject, is why does Disney close rides for refurbishment only a couple months away which can be very disappointing. For example, I had all parks and dining all scheduled in January, since then Disney decides to rehab, "Its tough to be a bug", and the "people mover" just in the last couple weeks......Why don't they plan themselves the way they are pretty much requiring vacationers to plan. They did the same thing back in 2012 when they closed 2 restaurants, the "Cape May Cafe" and "Narcoossee's" for rehab over a 5 week period for the same time in mid July. I don't understand their thinking!! Disney should announce any closures and refurbishments when they post extra-magic hours: 6 months in advance....Any comments or insight on this subject are appreciated!!

Hi everyone! Frozen recently reinvigorated my love for Disney, so I thought I'd join these wonderful boards. Really like it here so far.

The cheapest on-site hotel rates tend to be when school is in session. I recommend you look at January (avoiding MLK weekend), February (avoiding President's Day weekend) May (avoiding Memorial Day weekend), late August, September, October, November (avoiding Thanksgiving week) and early December.

Overwhelming but loving all the wonderful information on here! What exactly does "earning my ears" mean? And what is a "sticky" thread? I LOVE the entire Disney experience. My dream is to one day work for Disney on the Alaskan cruise line. For now, planning our first cruise ever on Fantasy in the fall to celebrate our 20th anniversary and bringing the kids along too!

Hey everyone I'm new to the forums but I hope to get the hang of it soon.

Massive Disney fan I'm going in October this year for 2 weeks it will be my 6th time in the last 11 years. I'd love to go more but it's not cheap.

Looking forward to seeing the new 7 Dwarfs mine ride and of course seeing my favourite characters

I'd love to share my pics but I have to be 10 or greater what ever that means so help me get there

New to the DIS Boards!

Hello everyone! I'm new to the DIS Boards. Don't quite know my way around yet, but I'm looking forward to exploring all of the different threads. Any suggestions on where to start?

Here is a little bit of a Disney background on me and my family, which may help with your suggestions:

Both myself and my DH went to WDW as children. We have taken our two DS (19 and 16) to WDW somewhere between 10-12 times over the past 10 years and we have two trips scheduled for later this year. We are DVC members. DS (19) is currently in DCP.

Any guidance would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi everyone! New to the boards...but not to Disney! I'm a self professed Disney addict. We are finally taking our lo (4 years old) to Disney World for her very first trip to see Disney World. We went for our honey moon then again 18 months later. It's been almost 7 years since we have been there so needless to say I have been pining to go back.

"Earning my ears" just refers to the fact that you're a new poster based on the number of posts you have; I'm not sure how many posts you need to get to the next level.

A sticky thread is one that always stays at the top of the forum it's in.

This is officially my very first post. I don't know why it has taken me so long but I finally had to give in to my Disney obsession and start talking to all you knowledgeable folks!
