I'm a little late on the introduction thing. (D'OH, 25 + posts)
My nickname is from a specific motorcycle model I just recently purchased, that just happens to share the name with the Disney character from The Jungle Book(just a different spelling.)
I've been a lurker on n off for a little while, and decided to go ahead and join up. I really enjoy the closeness/humor of many of the different members of this community. I am envious of the group meets out at The DLR, but I love to see all the pics you people on the West Coast post, which to me is the next best thing. I'm more of a casual Disney fan, not hardcore or into collecting anymore, I just like to go to the different parks or DTD here in Orlando for a few hours or so and chill out.
I started out with Disney as a very young child. My dad worked there from when MK opened (til he passed in summer of 74) as tech mostly for the animatronic figures. Some of the only memories I have from him are from the MK, so certain areas of that park keep images of him alive in my head even after all these years.
I also like to take pics and video of stuff at the resort (as well as my home away from home Sea World) for a few friends of mine over in the UK since they don't get to come over here as much as they'd like to.
I'll try to be a decent contributing member of this community.
I apologize ahead of time for the mini epic novel I just dropped on the board.
