Hi folks,

Just thought I'd take a minute to introduce myself.  I'm Len Testa.  I work for Bob Sehlinger and The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.  My main focus is on the touring plans and the computer software that creates those plans.  I'm not sure how many times I've been to WDW, but it's around 50.

My current favorite resort is the AKL, but I've been impressed with the Poly, too, just not stayed there yet.  

Favorite park: Epcot - even better at night
Favorite attraction: Splash Mountain
Favorite Restaurant: Boma, but I'll eat anywhere
Favorite MK land: Adventureland

My next trip is next week (woo hoo! ) for the big Mission:Space media event.  After that, it's the December meet & greet, then my brother's wedding at the Poly in January.  Tikiman, I'll be e-mailing you soon.  :bowdown:

My favorite memories of WDW include: several all-night drives from NC to MCO for weekend trips, my first E-Ride night, my daughter's first trip on Splash Mountain, and my first Unofficial Guide research trip.  Oh, and staying across the hall from Steven Tyler of Aerosmith at the BW when RnRC opened.

Home is Summerfield, NC, where I have a DW and DD5.  I also have a twin sis, and a younger sis and brother.  Both sisters have lost toenails working for the Unofficial Guide.  It's a long story.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have a question on the Unofficial Guide.  I look forward to meeting everyone here!

Sincerely,

Len

Yoo Hoo, Len!

I'm pleased to see you here and very honored you joined the Disney Echo!

EchoEars, Len also offered to me in email a great service which I quickly and gladly accepted from him: He'll be posting details of the WDW Press Events here on the Disney Echo for all of us!

I've used the Bob Sehlinger's Unofficial Guide to WDW (and to Disneyland, too) for many, many years now. I think it is great that you're involved with him on the trip planning guides in his book, Len.
:clapping:

Check out Len's website, too, EchoEars. Did you know that Len makes personalized trip plans similar to the generic ones found in the Unofficial Guide? Yup!

Len, here's a pair of Disney EchoEars I picked out especially for you:


Welcome to the Disney Echo, Len!

Woo Hoo Len,

I can't wait for the press event!    My husband and I head down to the park on Saturday afternoon.

He has NEVER been to Florida- much less the WDW.

See you at one of the evening parties on Wednesday or Thursday!  

I'll be the one with the big smile!

Last one on Mission Space has to clean up!

Hi Len and welcome to the Echo! I really enjoyed the Unofficial Guide to WDW. You'll really enjoy it here, the Echo is the friendliest place to be for Disney. You think you might be soon adding the Echo into a new listing for the book somewhere under online information? :mickey:  :minnie:

Hi Len, I just wanted to add my welcome to the group. I have been a big fan of UGTWDW since I bought my first one back in '96.   Welcome aboard!  

P. S.  Do ya'll need anyone else to help with resort research?  ;)
