First post...

Hello! I'm Heather, 25 years old, and a newbie here, but not a newbie to message boards in general. I belong to more of them than I can really keep track of...so what's one more, right?

I've lived in the Orlando area for almost 17 years now. I moved down from Boston with my family when I was 9 years old. I'm not a huge fan of living here, but it does have a few perks. #1 for me is being so close to one of my favorite places in all of Florida...Epcot! I'm a huge sucker for World Showcase. As a matter of fact, I was just telling my DH that I could go to Epcot everyday for a month and never get sick of it! He agreed. I rarely go to any of the other parks because when I get an opportunity to go to WDW, I always choose Epcot. An exception to that was last month when my pre-teen cousins were in town. I offered to take them to one park of their choice (secretly hoping they would choose Epcot); of course they chose MK. We still had a blast though!

Oh! And DH is also a former CM! I guess that's pertinent info for this board. He started when he was 19 in custodial services on the overnight crew and cleaned the TTC for a few months, then moved to Main Street. He used to hose down the street on Main Street in the wee hours when no one else was there. A few months after that, he got his big break! They had auditions for characters, so he tried out and made it! So he did that for almost a year and loved it for the most part. He has lots of interesting stories from that time in his life. Hee! So between the two of us, we know a whole bunch about WDW.

Anyways, I'm glad to be here. Hope to meet many of you around these boards very soon!

Thanks for welcoming me back I had almost 500 posts before I needed to change my username and found out I could not do it without reregistering it.
It was hard posting all those message since we had dial up. So here I go again!

Thumbs up I am so excited!!

It is wonderful to be here and great to read everyone's comments. I feel like this is a continuance of our WDW vacation from December 2006.

Avasmom, we stayed at POFQ and we loved it!! I would stay there again, in a heart beat.

Happy New Year!!

Hi, its easy to reply to a post. At the right side of the message box there is a little box that says quote. Click on that and my message will come up, than you can reply to it. As for my last trip it was in July 2005. A large family trip that we still talk about. I would like to try to go this summer. After I came home I was trying to find anything that reminded me of my trip. One of those things was the video of the top 7 must sees.( Do they still show that ?) For a while my cable provider was showing it. after they stopped I was looking for the video and my search took me here. I'm Hooked.

Thanks car55, I appreciate the help.

I recently met a lady at work who went to WDW a few weeks before me and now we have our trips in common (as well as this insesant need for all things Disney!!). But we chat about things that other people think is nuts. But it keeps the trip and memories alive!! Now, just flipping through our photos on the computer and watching the video of the fireworks brings me right back there. I hope you can get to go this summer. Do you have children? I have one daugther, aged three, almost four. She keeps asking when we can go back!!



Sorry, the laundry guys have no significance at this point, but I really wanted to try them!!
