When we come down in October we are going to Disney with friends. Probably again in April 2009. When we finally come down for the winter, my sister and I will get a season pass. We love all of the parks.

This is my first post on this site. Yes, yes, I'm a huge Disney fan. Am a member of a site called the DIS and have been to Disney many times.

I don't live in the Villages yet but am starting to look into this possibility and love the fact it's near Disney.

As you can see by our avatar, we're big Disney fans. MTNester you'll find that from down around 466A, you're only a little over an hour to the back gate of WDW on Western Way.

Like wdwduo said its a little over an hour from TV to WDW. Originally, I wanted to be a little closer to WDW but when I saw TV I started thinking how I would be willing to sacrifice being real close to WDW in exchange for some of the unique things that TV has.

Default Bambi and Thumper Statues

IKE visited us in Indiana. We lost the shingles off the roof, a porch swing, a barbecue grill. But the worst was loosing my Bambi and my Thumper statues. They were blown off the deck and were beheaded and also Thumper lost his head and his ears.!

Have been looking to replace them but have searched all over the net .

My grandchild loved them. I have been down to WDW every year since it was opened. I know my vacations will be filled with music, flowers, colors, and parades etc. What a wonderful week to which I always looked forward.

Jan, all sorts of attractions you'd enjoy. So many I can't list 'em all,
if you narrow it down to a single park, I'd share more.

My DW, MrsJohnN is a disney-holic and knows the places inside out.

JohnN... I've seen your posts and remember that your wife loves DW, and that you are a neighbor! We've only been to Epcot once and didn't go to the other parks, mainly because we were having too much fun in TV and figured we'd spend plenty of time at DW when we get there. But we've been to Disneyland hundreds of times. I'd love to visit with MrsJohnN to compare notes, and learn about the special places to go in DW. So, when we get settled, I'll send you a PM and we can get together, is that ok with you?

I would love to join a group going to Disney. Since I don't know anything about DW, going with a group would be the best way to learn. Lets Do It!

Is there any place to buy "discounted" Disney tickets??? We will be staying in TV for two months starting Oct 15. Our son and family will be visiting for a week and want to take their 5-year old. (perfect age!!) We wanted to tag along for a day and tickets are the same everywhere I look. Is this the norm?? If so, I'm sure we will go anyway. I'm just all for a deal, if I can find one. . .

Kepple, Florida residents (ie: drivers license) get a sweet discount, so one more reason to buy. You also get better prices when buying more than a day at a time, but otherwise, it is what it is as far as I know.

Thanks John, that's what I thought re: Disney tickets. I didn't know about the FL resident discount though. You're right, one more reason to buy. I think this is going to be our year! Thought we were going to sell our home in OH, but I think we are going to buy a smaller TV home for now and wait for the market to get better to sell this one. We've rented for five years now and never seem to go anywhere else. I guess that says something!
