Let's do a getting to know you post. I'll start. I'm from SoCal born and raised. I lived 20 miles from Disneyland my whole life. My prince joined the USAF so we left Cali last year (sigh). We still go home often to visit. In fact we'll be there this week for my son's 1st birthday Sunday and my 26th Birthday the 22nd. I've been married 5 years and with my airmen/prince 8. We have two dogs Duchess (lab/poodle) and Meeko (a black n white poodle/shih tzu mix). Disney, my family, photography and the military are my life. The end. :)
I'm JoAnne, and I'm 39 yrs old, divorced mom of 1. I was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago. We went to Disney 3x while I was growing up, but I haven't been in almost 30 yrs. We're leaving in 9 days for our first family vaca to WDW. I also have 2 grandkids, a girl 15 mos and a boy, 4 weeks old. I'm disabled, so vacations like this are once every 4-5 yrs because it takes me that long to save the money to go. I've been on MW for about 5 months, and I love it here. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #22 8:47PM
Hi! I'm Lori and MK79 is my crazy, Disney pin addict sister in law. ;) Pinocchio73 is my hubby. We've been married 14 years and have a beautiful 9 year old daughter who also loves Disney. We also have a sweet Siamese kitty. I was born in Orlando, Florida but raised in Western Washington state. We moved back and fourth a bit and even lived in PA twice. My first time at DW I was one. I was a CM at Blizzard Beach for a while before my family moved again, but we've visited several times (lost count) since then and DL twice. My next trip to DW is in March. - PixieDust76  74.1 #73 7:15PM
My name is Tiffany. I am 26. I reside in STL by way of Notre Dame University. I currently work PR for the STL Cardinals working part time as a sports journalist at the Post Dispatch. Got engaged this passed September at Cinderella's Royal Table. My fiancé is Ryan...he is also a MWer (CP85sJackSparrow). Our Disney Royal wedding is in April this year. We have two beautiful children. Madden who is 4 and Princess Kate who is nothing short of pure Disney magic with sprinkles of Pixie Dust. I am an absolute freak about Disney and sports...you name it I probably know it. I have been to WDW a total of 45 times and still have 3 visits to go this year!!! And I absolutely love this app. It has connected me to some of the greatest people I know without yet meeting. I aspire to meet everyone one day. It has also given me my favorite uncle...Uppity aka Michael. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #35 11:55PM
I read all of these. It's nice meeting all of you. My name is Theresa and I am 37. I've lived in NH for most of my life (I lived just outside STL  for about 3 years when my husband was in college) I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 16 years together for 21. We have 2 amazing children. Gwyneth is 11 and Hayden is 7. I have been to Disney World 5 times. We went on our honeymoon and have taken the kids 3 times. We became DVC members in 2005 Our home is SSR. We are planning to visit the Beach Club Villas in 616 days. We love to go in September when the crowds are low and the weather is still warm. I love planning our trips and MW has made it better when I am missing WDW. My husband and kids love Disney World as much as I do. It is the most magical place to make family memories and as a family we have the most fun EVER. - Tinkerbella2000  26.1 #130 11:07AM

Hi I'm Kelsey! I married Alex, my best friend since sixth grade, in may so we're still newlyweds :) We went to DL on our honeymoon and we're currently trying to save up for a trip to WDW since it's been about five years since I've been and he's never been :( We currently live in Utah but we recently decided that we want to take an adventure and now is the perfect time to do it so we're hoping to move to FL so that I can try to become friends with the princesses. It may be a long shot but it's something I've always wanted to do and if I can't get that I at least want to work at WDW. We're also currently trying to get into the world of bodybuilding for him and figure modeling for me but as for regular jobs I work at Target and Alex works at Boeing. That's about it.
