Decided to jump into the Pool!

After lurking for thes past several months, I decided it was time to jump in.

My partner and I are headed to The World in 88 days. This will be our sixth trip; we love staying at AKL, but will be at CBR this time. We wanted to stay longer and have dinner at Victoria & Albert's. Will miss breakfast on the balcony with the zebras!

Love the tips and the humor and the community. clapping
Will keep you all posted with our plans.

Ollie

Pirates, always. Since I was a kid and rode in The Land.
Dinner at V&A and fireworks dinner at Cali Grill.
Pesto goat cheese pizza at puck express.
Riding the monorail everywhere possible - several times.
Dole whip. and repeat.
Illuminations standing back by the bridge at Italy. Can feel the concussion of the fireworks there. What a rush!
Sunshine and some lounge chair time.
Starring Rolls Bakery.
All things Epcot.
Walking up Main Street and hearing the music. My partner always says "it sounds like Hello Dolly!" (her favorite movie)
People watching anywhere
Downtown Disney the 1st day

And more . . .

Must be the day for jumping into the pool.

Like Ollie, I've been lurking for a while.

Been going to WDW with my kids on a regular basis since 1987 (at least 18 times).

I met my DP (Disney Partner) via Match.com 4 years ago. She agreed to our first date partially because I had used a picture of me on Main Street in my profile. She's a DVC member and has been on 4 cruises.

Sorry, Vettelover, I am in that little New England state where all the presidential candidates flock. This time of year you can't go anywhere without running into Mitt, Ron, Newt, Michele, or one of the Ricks.

HEY!! I am from New Hampshire too. And just for the record you forgot to mention that you can't go a half hour without your phone ringing for either one of the candidates or a voter survey. I will be very happy when our primary is DONE

Welcome and Happy New Year, Ollie and BB! I'm really looking forward to reading all about your memories, as well as your new adventures! Ollie - I can't wait to hear all about V&A's! I'd love to go there. We've stayed at CBR several times now, and the experience has always been good.

Welcome, Ollie and Buffalo Bill! You'll find this a great community, despite my terrible jokes.

Good list, Ollie! I hope you don't mind a few more ideas. Pirates of the Caribbean is probably my favorite ride in MK.

Beaches and Cream....Parasailing 600 feet above Bay Lake....Mission: Space....Hoop de Doo Revue....Resort hopping.....Food and Wine Festival....Split-stays....
