I have the video tape of The World of Motion that was given out by GM dealerships. At the end of the ride, a postcard could be picked up and when taking a test drive, the dealership would fill out the card and GM would send a video tape about the ride and WDW. I still have a VHS player and can watch it, if I want to (it WAS one of my favorite rides), but it does show you how long I've been going to EPCOT. Hubby and I's first trip to WDW was in 1977 when it was The Magic Kingdom and downtown Disney. Sigh. I wish I were planning a trip right now!!

You know you're a WDW nut when the phone rings, and you see on the caller ID that it's your brother that you haven't heard from in ages, but you ignore the call anyway because you're busy posting information about your next trip to WDW on Subsonic... :shock: :roll: :lol:

You know you're a WDW nut when...

...you hear on TV in another room voices saying "oooooooh" and "aaaaaaaah" and thinking to yourself, "it's the three-eyed green alien toys from the Pizza Planet claw machine" - only to discover instead it was the scrubbing bubbles in a commercial. :mickey:

Nice one Mousekedude!

When you are posting on the Disney board while your mom is on the phone with Disney for something.

When you complain to the disney cast member on the phone since the hold music has changed and is not as good as it used to be.

When you moan when the cast member picks up the phone because they interrupted "A Pirate's Life for Me".

You know you're a WDW nut when...
Your coworker comes to get you because a volunteer needs help and when you get there you find out that they need help planning their trip to Disney.

Or (from years ago) your Disney Store coworkers call you at home because they can't remember the names of Pongo and Perdita's puppies and they know if anyone will know it is you.

Or for your family vacation to Disney with 17 people you gather everyone together for a pre-trip power point presentation and present them with multiple spreadsheets for the week.

Or when there is actually something you don't know about Disney you can ask your 9 year old son and he knows.

You know you're a WDW nut when the only thing you notice while picking up your pizza at your local Papa Johns is that they deliver to Bay Lake Tower, The Contemporary, The Poly and the Grand Floridian.
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”

I went to another site's forum meet back in 04 with about 40 people and they all ended up following me and I still lived in South Florida at the time.

I've given numerous shows as a Gangster/Bandit and Tour Guide at GMR.

Bring it on!!! :goofy_bounce: :hatter_bounce: :ccat: :hm_ghost:

Wait a while to move. The economy sucks here. Every interview I've had here since losing my job at Disney almost a year and a half ago has had at least 19 other people going for the same job. :evil:
