Hi everyone,

Came across this website completely by accident last night while surfing !

Just thought I would tell you a little bit about myself.

My name is Rachel and I am 32 years old.  I live with my husband Andy and our beautiful 4 year old daughter Georgia.  We live in Newbury, England.

My first visit to WDW was in 1993 and I have visited four times since then.  Andy has visited around 15 times.  Our last visit was in November 2002 when we took Georgia for the first time.  Our visit was a massive three weeks long and we toured EPCOT, AK, MK and MGM.  We also did the non-disney thing and visited Seaworld and the Universal parks.  Our next visit is planned for January 2004 when we are going to concentrate on the Disney parks.

Favourites:

Resort: Port Orleans Riverside
Park: Magic Kingdom
Moment: Georgia meeting Mickey Mouse for the first time
Attraction:  Main Street - you just can't beat that feeling of walking down Main Street for the first time.
Memory so far: Getting married at Wyndham Palace Resort in December 1996.  Visiting Downtown Disney to have pictures taken in our wedding outfits and then going to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

Now planning our January trip and looking forward to meeting new friends !

Rachel

Yoo Hoo, Rachel!

I always love it when we have another Disney fan from England join the Disney Echo. Welcome, Rachel! What part of England is Newbury?

You and Andy sure have visited WDW a whole lot for being so far away! Have you ever been to the Disneyland Paris resort? I've heard it is actually a far better value for people in Great Britain to travel to WDW in Florida than to Disneyland Paris -- do you find this to be true?

I'd love to be able to stay at WDW for as long as y'all did on your last trip -- the longest I've ever stayed was 8 nights in a Fort Wilderness cabin this past June. How long are you planning to stay in January, and where?

Here's a pair of Disney EchoEars I've picked out for you, Rachel:


I hope it brings even more magic to your happy planning!

Rich,

Many thanks for the warm welcome and the great echo ears !

Newbury is in the county of Berkshire, about 50 miles west of London.  If you have heard of Greenham Common we are about 3 miles from there.

Andy and I have never visited Disneyland Paris - we just can't bring ourselves to go there.  There are two reasons, it is more economical to go to Florida and the other is that Andy is a strong believer in Disney being an American experience.

Andy has visited Disneyland, California three times but we are yet to visit there together.

Our visit in January is shorter than the one last year as we are only staying for 12 nights.  We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside resort - we love it there !

Looking forward to talking with you.

Rachel

Hi Rachel and Andy! You'll really love the Echo, pleased you could join us! :minnie:  :mickey:

What a happy accident that you found us! :coolgrin:

I wish I could visit England, always wanted to. It must be lovely up there especially at this time of the year.
