So what would a "Disney club" actually do????

I think it'd be great if TV had a large van/bus or something for a group to use to travel to something like the parks.

Oh my gosh, am I ever a Disney fan. So is my daughter.

I use to wear a Jiminey Crickett pin on my hospital ID (long story)

Can't wait to get to TV and visit WDW often. Trips there with TV friends and Sistahs sounds like fun!!!

What would a "Disney Club" do? Well, first it would be a great community of peeps to call upon to visit the parks with each other. If we have any Disney collection(s), we could show them. If we had a large enough group, perhaps we could arrange to have bus transportation to the parks once or twice a month. These are just a few of my thoughts. I'm not yet in TV, so I can't yet start a club. If someone else wants to beat me to it ... feel free!

While I expect most of you are aware of these websites, in case not, you may want to view them. Of course, there are hundreds (thousands?) more, but these are my favs.

I also love Disney World. We have a stay at Disney World planned for the end of September. When we were deciding a couple of weeks ago whether to purchase a new villa in The Villages I asked my DH if that would mean I had to cancel my Disney trip. He said no so I knew that owning in The Villages would just mean more opportunities to go visit the mouse! I'm all in favor of some kind of Disney Club. Especially if we could arrange some bus transportation. My DH does not like to go as often as I do. If I spend enough time in The Villages I can become a Florida resident and get some great discounts. That would be great.

I am a huge Disney fan too. Although I bought a house in TV for many other reasons, the proximity to Disney was a big plus. I come to Florida when my schedule allows but I am hoping to come after Thanksgiving/before Christmas so I can visit Disney when it is decorated for Christmas! Who says you have to grow up??!!

lol Colleen. That's the beauty of living in TV -- we get to be kids all the time.

I can't say I'm a huge Disney fan but I do like it. I'd love it if it had decent coasters but it's coasters are so-so at best. Even so, it is a great place and wonderful for little ones.

Can you imagine what kind of place would have been created had Walt and Harold (Schwartz) gotten together?

Granddaughter is visiting from Va and we just got back yesterday from 3 days at Disney. Stayed in their Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Visited Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Husband and I bought the annual pass and are looking forward to going back. Only took us about 1hr 15min to get there. WE LOVE THEIR FIREWORKS, LIGHTED PARADES, and everything else. We are going to try to go back at least once or twice a month. The pass for Florida residents was $350.00 each plus tax. they have one less expensive but there are blackout dates and we wanted to be able to go whenever the mood struck. My great niece (age 10) came to the Villages after a trip to Disney World and while walking around Lake Sumter Landing she said "This is just like Disney World." Thought that was cute--

Oh yes, we are huge fans. We grew up in Orange County, CA and lived there until 2004 when we came to AZ. We had Disneyland annual passes for years, and before that both of us spent a lot of our youth and teenage years there. My husband even worked there. We actually decided to move to Florida to be near Disney World because we missed Disneyland so much. Then we found TV, which is our dream come true... the closest thing on this planet to actually living in Disneyland. We bought a house last July and we can't wait to get there, which is now planned for December. We'll for sure get the annual passes to DW.
