Good morning everyone! Who's up for some GeetingToKnowYou fun! I realized that although my 5 year mousewaitaversary was earlier this month, work and life have had me (and I'm sure others!) go through sad, long hiatuses. So let's share some memories! If you'd like, comment your first name, where you're from, and the year of your very first trip to Disney World! I'm Mikayla, from NY, and I first went in 1999, staying at Dixie Landings (POR). (: have a magical day!

Good morning. We haven't done this in a while. I'm Gayle from NE Ohio, went to Disney for the first time in 1993 and it was the only time we stayed off property in a what is now disney springs hotels. It was like a comfort in and suites I forget the name.Β  - mmddgp  1959.4 #3 7:28AM
πŸ˜ƒ I'm Scott (also known as Radio-Man) from Jupiter, Florida, USA. My first visit was way back in December of 1971. I've been to WDW many times sinceβ—πŸ˜€β° - Radio-Man  386.9 #25 7:38AM
I'm KD, I live in central California. Our 1st trip to Disney World was 2013, I think. It was during the Halloween season. We stayed at the French Quarter. This coming July will be our 4th visit.  - GoofyMom77  1162.9 #191 8:43AM
Good morning. Melissa here, currently from Iowa, but heading south soon! My first visit was in 1983 with my parents and sisters. Now my family goes yearly, last Fall was my 11th visit. - DizneyGirl  1564.5 #5 8:53AM
Hi Maryrose from Chicago and my first trip was 1976.  I have been hooked from that point on going every year after that.  Sometimes we are fortunate to go twice and even recently three times a year.  Wish we lived closer - Pooh147856  480.6 #20 9:16AM

Hi I'm Caryn from Nappanee, Indiana.  Our first visit was in 1999 and we stayed at All Stars Sports Resort. Was hooked from then on. Visit almost every year.   - disneycm  809.0 #10 12:23PM
Hi, I'm Mandy from PA. My first trip was in 1988.  πŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  744.7 #13 1:31PM
Gary from Murrieta, CA. Think our first trip was 2003. All a blur now. Stayed at the Grand Floridian, magical! Our first meal was at Narcoosee's. Nancy and I ate there a couple of weeks ago. Had a 3 hour dinner! Still magical! - jacdanfan  15527.2 #5 1:34PM
What time of year did you go your first trip?  Do you remember the dates?  I stayed at the GF (annual work trip from 2002-2005) the last week of July. - mrsincredible  1435.6 #7 4:24PM
It was the last week of August 2003. Had to go through souvenirs etc to find dates. Found a program with the dates! - jacdanfan  15527.2 #5 6:16PM
Missed you by a month!  - mrsincredible  1435.6 #7 5:44AM
Maggie from Northwest Arkansas. πŸ‘‹πŸΌ First trip to WDW was a work trip in 2002, fully paid for by the company. Our extended team of 250 people stayed at the Grand Floridian for a group rate of $165 a night!  We used their conference center/meeting rooms during normal business hours and I stayed in my room at night.  Was there 3-4 full days and never even visited the parks.  Can you believe it?!  Had no clue at that time I could have hopped on the monorail and been in the Magic Kingdom in the blink of an eye.  Years later, I caught the Disney bug and have been incredibly fortunate to go 2-3 times a year for the past 6 years.  - mrsincredible  1435.6 #7 4:21PM
That's so funny! NOW, staying so close and not going into the parks would be torture!  - ariel116  125.8 #68 4:13AM
Kelly from Flower Mound, TX (though now I live in Austin). My first trip to Disney world was 1975 as a child!   - brittandkell  557.6 #428 5:28PM

Britt from West Tennessee. First trip to WDW was in 1999 with wife. No kids yet.  Stayed off property for that trip.  Came back with whole family in 2007 and stayed at All-Star Resorts. Been 5 times with total family.  We stay on property and love it.  Going back in October staying at Pop Century.  We would move to Orlando and work at Disney now if we could. - JekPorkins  16.9 #194 6:02PM
Hello! Andrea from Orlando, FL. I took one family trip to WDW when I was a kid in August of 1995 and got the worst sunburn of my life from Blizzard Beach and it rained every day, but a great time! My husband and I took our first trip together to WDW Christmas of 2010 and visited DL/WDW three to four times a year until we decided it was easier just to move close to the magic so we moved to FL four years ago!  - Andrea84  759.1 #12 6:30PM
Awesome!! - ariel116  125.8 #68 4:13AM
How easy is the transition when you move? - JekPorkins  16.9 #194 2:22PM
We are from CO so it took some time to settle in and get used to everything, several years really. Leaving all our friends and family was also a challenge but it the end it was worth it and we love it! We do see a lot of friends and family since they also enjoy visiting WDW which helps. - Andrea84  759.1 #12 6:05PM

Hey everyone! I'm Nicole from South Carolina. My first trip to WDW was in 1990 with my high school band! My next visit was for my honeymoon in 1996. The first trip we took with our children was in 2012 when the kids were 10 and 13. We have been visiting yearly ever since. We are a Disney family for sure!Β  - ncjal  333.4 #29 7:06PM
Hi my name is Alan. I live just outside of pittsburgh. My first time to Disney world was in 2000. I stayed at a four points Sheraton lakeside with my now wife when we were just dating. Been back about 7-8 times since then. - alfrulz  19.8 #178 7:02PM
Hi, my name is Renee and I live on the island of Oahu. My family's first trip to WDW was last Fall, and we are going again this coming September for two weeks. We stayed at AKL last visit and will be doing the same this next one as well. We are typically a Disneyland family, as it's so much closer to Hawaii, but we absolutely fell head over heels in love with WDW and can't wait to be back again! - DarthTinkerbell  1632.3 #130 10:45AM
Hello! I'm Michelle (but everyone calls me Mimi). I'm from NY but live in SoCal now. My first trip was last September for my birthday! We stay off site. It's kind of ironic that even though I grew up in the northeast, I ended up going to Disneyland before Disney World. It took several years of frequent Disneyland visits before getting to WDW, but we LOVE it! - missmimi90  2081.6 #95 1:21PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  13592.4 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 9:55PM
