Disney with friends is so much fun! My situation was a little different but very similar. My family met up with families from their past.The first couple days I was mainly with (I was 12 at the time) a 11 year old boy, 13 year old girl, and a 16 year old boy. I had never been with these people before but we had a blast!! Disney is WAY more fun with friends. The great thing too is I only asked if they had any suggestions and they never did and always agreed to what I wanted to do. :lmao: Usually in the morning all the families would be together and the kids would hang out in the afternoon. It was awesome! What I would suggest bringing a friend just making sure she is someone good to take. Do you like the same rides? Is this person go with flow? Do you share interests. I would do a trail run at a local Six Flags. Like for example I am hoping to take my good friend to my upcoming Disney and Universal trip. She will ride anything. She likes Disney, not as much as me, but still likes it a lot. And we are both Marvel nerds so we can geek out at Super Hero Island. Bringing a friend can be magical! :earsboy:

Thanks! I will definitely consider bringing a close friend on our next trip(:

Yup! My mom's best friend has come to Disney World the past 2 times with us and she's coming with us again in December. Her daughter is a very good friend of mine and we love doing stuff in the park together. They always let us go to parks alone so we can just do what we want (since we're both almost 18). We have an awesome time and we have very similar tastes in rides and such so there's no disagreement over what to do. I'd definitely recommend taking a friend, it's a lot of fun. :goodvibes

We usually go with another family but they only have two kids my little brother and sisters ages but we all get along and hang out and have fun. Last spring break I brought a friend with us and I had a bad experience we didn't not get along the most of the time and it just ruined the trip.
if you are going to bring a friend just make sure it is your best friend that you always get along with and you've seen ever side of, otherwise its not worth it.

I have never brought a friend to Disney. I have been to Niagra Falls with friends. I didn't have a fun time because we were not best friends and would not listen to my suggestions on what to do and ended up doing everything they wanted to do. When the chance to go to Hersey Park together I refused to go because of my horrible experience with them.

Icky! Same thing happened to me when I went to New York City and D.C. Ruins the trip:sad2: You just have to be really careful who you bring. I am sorry you had this experience.

I took a friend with me to Disney for my 16th birthday and totally regretted it. She complained almost the entire time and wanted to go back to the hotel after about 4 hours at the parks. It was pretty stressful. She started crying because she was hot...she's 17...so yeah. After the trip, she said she had mono, that's why she felt so bad. I could tell she was acting the entire time. What her problem was i don't know. All i know is that i can't wait for my redo trip in November. We left her behind on the last day because she said she felt like she "got hit by a bus". It was the best day of the entire vacation. So the moral of the story is, be careful who you take. I've been with family friends and it was just fine so it's not always bad.

The first time I went to WDW, my friends family and mine went together. That was in '06, we went for the Halloween Party :) I went last January and brought my best friend. At that time we didn't know, but she ended up moving in June. I'm glad I took that trip with her. We are so much closer now and the memories we made were amazing. I definitely suggest bringing a friend. It makes the trip that much more amazing :)

In January of this year, my friend's parents went to a convention at the Grand Floridian. My friend invited another friend of mine and me up to stay at the Grand Floridian for the long weekend and go to the parks. It was one of the best trips ever. I had so much fun with my friends, getting to share everything I love with them and creating new memories... it was great. In December, my school performed at Disney's Candlelight and I got to spend a day in Magic Kingdom with some of my friends. They called me their tour guide, haha. Despite them playfully making fun of me, we did have a lot of fun. I highly recommend a trip with friends if you can!

I wanted to get a couple of moms and like 10 people to go on a Disney trip close to the last day of school or during spring break! But I'm afraid of drama and other things that wouldn't make it any fun? Any suggestions?:confused3:goodvibes I think it would be so much fun though!:thumbsup2

I have a huge problem!!! My 2 best friends are sisters! I just found out I could invite one! If both come its going to be more expensive! I don't know what to do! There are a lot of possibilities that both can go for less money but its a lot of what ifs and problems. I am closer to one though but I am still close to the other and I don't want her to be mad. Please, any advice?

I had a bad experience when I brought my best friend last year in May. She's a huge Disney fan, so I thought it'd be a great idea. Instead, she was very homesick and complained the entire trip. The heat didn't help, and she took long naps in the afternoon. She was constantly texting someone back home. I couldn't tell when she was having fun. :sad2: She did say once that "this is everything I ever dreamed it would be." (She'd wanted to go for years, and I do know that she was happy at least sometimes.) :confused3 I still don't know if she actually enjoyed the trip.
But it was fun in some ways. I actually had someone to hang out with besides my parents (I'm an only child), and doing stuff in WDW is much more fun if you have a friend than if you do it alone!
Just be careful who you take. Know their favorite kind of rides, if you and your family will get along with them, etc. Pick the right friend and you'll have an awesome time! :)

I love love love going with friends! :) If I don't take a friend it's always just me, my brother (14) and my dad, so it's always uneven! :( Rides by yourself isn't as fun!

This time I get to bring my boyfriend (this is his second trip with us, but it's been almost 3 years since the last time he came with us! :cool1:

My situation was my mom, me, my brother, and my grandmother were supposed to go to disney but she just got back from leg surgery so she could not go.Then my mom suggested that we bring my papa but he would not answer. So she said call Grace which who is my bff. She answered and freaked she had never been and was like one big birthday party fro me the whole trip. So it ended up me, my mom, my brother, my bff, and my papa.
