Hi, I'm Kirsten! I've been listening to the podcast for about 9 mos now- I discovered it after coming back from our trip last May! I've been listening to back episodes to get ready for a surprise 40th birthday trip for my wife (coming up next month!)
I grew up in Southern California and Oregon and as a kid we went to the park several times. My wife and I went together 7 years ago and I totally fell back in love with Disneyland and got to enjoy DCA! We live in Portland, OR and after taking our son with us last May we're all becoming a little Disney obsessed!
It's a family goal to go for the holidays some year, and to stay at either the Disneyland hotel or the Grand Californian! I'm a nurse, and 4yo son now asks me to work extra shifts to "pay the money to Disneyland again!"
He has special needs and we used the DAS pass when we went- it was awesome.
