Hello. I'm Douglas Hindley. I'm a Southern California native and Disneyland pass holder (favorite park, incidentally). Was raised in a Disney family. My dad handled legal contracts with the OLC back when Tokyo Disneyland was just under construction, and I was featured in the park's opening parades - apparently they wanted an American baby alongside Mickey for some reason. I haven't been back to the Tokyo parks since, nor have I been to WDW. Other than SoCal, I can only claim to have seen Disneyland Paris (a mere two months ago), and the wonderful Ohio iron parks. My favorite ride is the original POTC; I'm a traditionalist. While I'm new to WDWMagic, I've been a regular Armchair Imagineer over on Theme Park Insider's Theme Park Apprentice competitions. (Dunno how TPI or TPA are regarded 'round these parts.) I won Season 7 with a DisneySky proposal (seen recently on this forum's March Madness battle) and I won Season 8 with Buyan Park, an original proposal for a Russian fairy tale park in St. Petersburg. TPA's second Tournament of Champions is coming up, but after that I won't be allowed to compete over there any longer. Once that's done, I'm interested in trying out some WDWMagic communal imagineering projects, trying some new stuff here. Glad to be here!
