Welcome to DC!

My parents took us when my sister and I were Elementary aged. Then, we went again when I was in High School and had so much fun we went again the next year. (This was when our school systems had the week long fall break too) After convincing a few adult doubters, the whole extended family goes together. And still loves each other when we get back!

Hi there BFG3dfx!

I went a lot when I was small, but it tapered off through grade school. Then, in the mid 80’s when I was in HS, I started going at least once a year. Then I moved to LA and went all the time. After I moved from LA, I went maybe once a year then there was a time I didn’t go for 5 years I think :eek: That was wayyyyyy to long to go :mickey:

My first time to WDW was when I was 11 y/o. My whole family was addicted from that day. Since then, we’ve been almost every year. My next trip will be my 21st…

Small World :mickey:

My family lived in Teachapi when I was born, but my mom had me at Bakersfield Memorial as this was 1969 and she didn’t want to have me in the Dr’s office there. However, the drive was long and I am number 6 so I was nearly born in the waiting room, lol.

Where do you like to stay when you go to Disneyland? I wish I were closer, I miss waking up and deciding to go for the day.

P.S. ive never been to WDW, i know i know but ireally wanna go so bad


#14

Yes, still in CA, in the San Francisco bay area. 5 1/2 hours from the Mouse :mickey:


#15

Ah, you’re a ways up there alright daisyd, you must do 2 or 3 day stays then huh, ive been thinking about a 2 day stay at one of the Disney hotels again but since ive been doing the AP i havent done it, do AP holders get any Disney hotel deals? guess ishould look that up


#16

Haven’t been to Disneyland in years, mainly because its on the other side of the country. But WDW… too many times to count. Hopefully I’ll hit DL next year.


#17

I’d like to get there on day (DL). A buddy talked me into going to WDW when I was 19. I’ve stuck ever since. (about 2 years)


#18

1989 - I was 6 and went with my parents. We then tried to hit WDW every other year. (Those off years were spent on smaller trips - New Orleans, Smokies, ATL, etc)


#19

thats great, since im from california its always disneyland but im going to trying to make WDW this year or next, my freind i went to disneyland last with lives in japan, shes been to disneyland,WDW,disney japan and disney hong kong, id love to make it to all those disney parks, ive even thought of moving out there and working at WDW for a 6 months or a year


#20

I went maybe once a year since I was about 5 or 6. And then MORE than that once I was in college and in charge of my own plans.

Now I’m across the country and not a regular anymore. :crying:
