Hi!

Hi all! I just found this forum today and I am so excited to meet more Disney people! I am on disboards under Sugarlumples, if any of ya'll are on there. I am not terribly active on there and this forum already seems more comfortable to me. mickey

So, introductions...I am an Alabama native and Auburn University grad living in New Hampshire with my husband and our three cats. We are childfree. I am a Disney fanatic and my husband tolerates my obsession, but is not a Disney person. He really does enjoy going to WDW though. Other than Disney I enjoy baking, online shopping, expensive purses, photography, collecting salt and pepper shakers and vintage Avon bottles, reading, flamingos, traveling, the color pink, and Auburn football - War Eagle! I work as a business analyst within IT for a large insurance company.

My Disney introduction...I went on many childhood trips with my family, but definitely went through my "too cool for Disney" phase and then my "I'm too poor to take vacations" phase while in college. laugh My husband and I had a Disneymoon in 2008, which rekindled my unhealthy love for Disney. We have been back in 2010, 2011, and will be back in February 2012 (28 days!). I have two Disney tattoos, a Mickey head outline on my right foot and a Minnie head outline on my left. I love them a lot.

We have stayed at Pop, CSR, and AKL during our recent trips. We will be returning to Pop for our February trip; love that resort! My favorite park is Animal Kingdom and my husband's favorite is Hollywood Studios. We are total ride junkies, so we love riding the coasters a lot. My favorite rides are Splash Mountain, RnR, Tower of Terror, Dinosaur, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Expedition Everest. My husband loves RnR, teacups, Expedition Everest, and Dinosaur.

Let's talk food. My favorite TS restaurant is Boma, but my absolute favorite dessert is the banana foster bread pudding at 'Ohana. muchlove Bread pudding is my favorite kind of dessert and the one at 'Ohana is the best I have ever had. I seriously dream about it. My husband loves 'Ohana (meat sweats anyone?) and also Boma. Our favorite CS place is definitely Tangierine Cafe in Morocco. Must-have snacks are Dole Whip floats, Disney popcorn, cupcakes from various locations, school bread, tie dye cheesecake, turkey legs, and cinnamon rolls from Main Street bakery. Yummm! Can you tell I have a bit of a sweet tooth?

Sooo that's me. Bless you if you read all that. Can't wait to chat more!

Oh yes, me too! I have been on an evil low carb weight loss program, which works wonders, but I am fantasizing about eating delicious carbs in 28 days. I always stalk food posts, but it's getting ridiculous now. It's gonna be wonderful to eat all those calories though. wink

Howdy and Welcome!

Boma and Ohana are two of our favorites as well, although 'Ohana comes and goes. The dessert is always wonderful, but the rest of the meal can be very varied. Also I always preferred the potatoes to the noodles (although the noodles have been growing on me.) (Can you tell we like to talk about food?)

Anyway...

welcome

Hi! and welcome sugarlumples yes you have found the BEST Disney forum on the net. As I am sure you have already found out our collective love of food here is second to none and more food lovers are always welcome. I also am from NH, actually the southern section of our now peaceful state (after all the politicians are finally gone south). laugh clapping So glad you found us.

Hi,

Single, 48-year old Disney loving guy in New Jersey who's been to Disneyland once and to WDW eight times (the last seven of those trips solo). Currently recovering from acute (or not-so-cute) bronchitis; one of those conditions that once you get, you get a lot. It is a bad thing to get if, like mine, your main job is to speak on the phone. You have definitely reached the friendliest Disney fan site on the web. I too am on Disboards, as Disneyfan63. But I like it better here because it's more "homey".

Welcome home!

Jim, who believes that heavy metal began not with Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin, but with Looney Tunes and all the anvils that fell on Wile E. Coyote.

Hello and Welcome!! You're going to love it here! We may be smaller, but *SO* much more friendly and just as experienced as that "other place" laugh

I love Boma, but I admit I haven't ever considered dinner there! We usually stop for breakfast because AKL is our home resort.

Jump right in and have a great time here!

Welcome. This is a great forum to bounce ideas around for your next WDW vacation.

I went to Auburn University Montgomery, but became a Bama fan way before attending college, and that hasn't changed.

ROLL TIDE!!!
