Somewhere In, Virginia
About John: I'm a Virginia native so I grew up going to Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens almost every year. I love amusement parks and thrill rides - you name it and I will ride it! But it wasn't always that way.. as a young kid I NEVER would get on a coaster! First coaster was the Rebel Yell at KD when I was about 13.. and was hooked ever since.

My First WDW trip was in 1977. I still have such indelible memories of it! And now, in 2009, I am going on my 5th trip to WDW... but this time as a DADDY with my wife and kids (age 8 and 10). It is the kids first trip to the Magic Kingdom, and I think I am more excited about them going than they are! I know these memories will last their entire life.
