    I'm just so opposite. I love Florida for the ocean and ocean activities..it doesn't pain me to visit Florida now and not do Disney.. but it does pain me to do Disney and not the ocean.

    Funny how we're all so different :)

    I miss Florida something fierce, but I actually really like where I live in Ohio...I just need to escape a few times per year ;)

    I grew up by the ocean so living in central Florida is no bother to me. We are an hour from the beach I can visit anytime. We love Disney we are now close to 10 years being close to the Disney area and we have not lost the "magic" feeling. We love the parks and while yes there's no doubt the Mouse House has let us down some days, there's never been a day that's we said lets skip going to Disney.

    There's literally nothing like being able to leave my office and be parking at Epcot 15 mins later. Talk about a stress relief!

    The crazy thing is that before I moved here I had always dreamed of working in Orlando then making a goal of eating at all the disney restaurants. It is easy enough and a value given the expanded passholder discounts. But Orlando city has so many great restaurants I only go to Ohana.

    But I will say I love driving down I-4. It makes me smile to know the vacation kingdom is my backyard lol

    I as well. I grew up in Ohio, moved to Gainesville during high school in 2006, and have bopped around a few different cities in FL for college, varying from 2-3 hours away from Orlando. I always said I eventually wanted to live here, little did I know it would be the location of my first job after getting my Masters! My nearest Publix is the one next to Sea World, always makes me smile while going in and seeing the coasters!
