My name is Cheryl
and I live in Maidstone in the county (state) of Kent with my husband Mark.
That’s in the south eastern corner of the UK and only 40 minutes away from
London. With the Channel Tunnel, we’re also only two hours away from Paris
and three hours from Brussels, which is great for us, as we both love
travelling. Since we got married in November 1999, we’ve been to Venice and
Rome in Italy, Paris, Brussels in Belgium, Amsterdam in Holland and Dublin
in Ireland, just to name a few places!
I work as the Press and Media Manager in a local Council (local government),
which means I deal with press enquiries from all types of journalists, write
press releases and make sure people who do interviews know all about the
subjects they’re talking about. Before that, I worked for seven years as a
journalist on various local radio stations.
Living in the UK means I don’t get to travel to Disney as often as I’d like.
Because it’s a nine hour flight for us, when we do go, it tends to be for a
minimum of two weeks at a time, which allows us to fully explore all the
parks and enjoy Disney’s many wonderful restaurants.
I first traveled to Disney World in 1981 as an eight year old with my
parents and even then I was hooked. My parents then took me back six years
later and we also visited Disneyland in California. I was hooked and wanted
to stay on property, so Disney World was the natural choice for our
honeymoon and we’ve been going back every year or so ever since, with the
occasional trip to Disneyland Paris thrown in!
As we love Disney so much – and in particular the Beach Club – we became DVC
members in December 2002 with our home resort as the Beach Club Villas. It’s
a decision we’ve not regretted at all and I hope I’ll be able to help with
any questions about being a member of the DVC.
