Anyone else have a November 2003 trip planned yet? We will be there from the 10th till the 21st in the FW campground. Since when we were married we had a ready-made family we are finally getting our honeymoon since the youngest just graduated this year. Woooo hooooo!!!!
WDW is so much fun...can't wait to get there!!!!!
We were supposed to be leaving today for our trip but DH broke his neck being thrown from his horse in May. So rather than have him not be able to fully enjoy the WDW experience we postponed the trip. He has never been to anything larger than our state fair. He has no clue!!!! The best part for me (since I've been there gadzillions of times) will be to watch DH's reaction to it all!
See you all there!!!

I always go solo in June for a business trip/five day solo nirvana, but I'm taking my wife this time. As we're having our first child in September, I'm giving up this year's solo trip so that we might take our final adult only trip! We'll be there June 6-12. Still don't know the hotel yet. Usually the BC or YC, but might downgrade so that the company money pays for the wife's trip. If anyone sees a six foot two red head and a 5 foot tall pregnant woman, that's us!

Join me for a women's group vacation at WDW. Who is going solo, but would rather share the experience with a few other women? 8 days, off-season, October. I'm reading a few books about Disney World and am learning how to plan a wonderful vacation, and avoid standing in long lines, minimizing stress and maximizing enjoyment. We can each get our own rooms and then meet up to share the adventure, or we can make arrangements to stay at the same Disney resort like Port Orleans -- French Quarter. Let's combine the freedom of independance with the discovery of knew frendship.

Hi all!
This is my first post and my 1st trip to Disney!! I was there quite
a while ago, when Epcot was being built. But, I was a lot younger
then and really didn't remember or appreciate it as I would now. I
grew up to become a Disney fanatic!! We are headed to Disney on Wed. 8/20 staying off site. Unfortunately, we only have 4 days
to spend there. So, we have to cram everything into 4 days. But,
I guess 4 days is better than none. Just thought I would say HI
and any ideas anyone can give me in doing this all in 4 days would be helpful. Can't wait to
see PLUTO!!

Disneywolf,

Having just spent a whirlwind 3 days in WDW (solo) doing stuff for my book, my best advice for you in doing it in 4 days is...

Wear comfortable sneakers!!! ;-)

You can't do it all, so pick and choose what you want to see the most, and try and plan your days accordingly. Take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours if you are staying on property.

Have fun!!!

Hi disneywolf I have been going to WDW for 21 year and
I love it. I talk to people from all over the world I just say Hi.
iF they need help and I can help I do that way I meet A lot
of people its fun.
As for the Rides I pick and chose and as for eating some day
I eat cheap and some days I eat good but just do your
own thing.

There are also plans for October and December.....but since dates are not firm, I'll just keep my eyes open for other postings here!!

I'm keeping my eyes peeled :banana: for another Dis'er during our 'no kids' trip, I'm determined to actually meet a fellow disneyophile! Could we buy you a drink? dolewhip? mickeybar?
4 trips of wearing my limegreen and nothing! I've stopped embarrassing my husband asking strangers if they are 'Disers' you know the instant it comes out of your mouth they aren't, judging by the look of fear in their eyes. The last time I asked, some poor lady in lime green shorts sighed and told me I was the third person to ask.....I should have known she wasn't though.....she was asking a CM what the fastpass machines were for. :crazy:

:earsboy: Hello Hello!

My name is Jeroen, im 29 years old and living in the Netherlands. That's in Europe if anyone is wondering...

I am visiting WDW Orlando in the last week of september, and will be self entertaining for most of the time, so i was wondering if someone who was familiar with the parcs was going to be there to for that period and would like to show me around or share my experience of my first Orlando visit.

I have been to Anaheim twice and about 20 times to Disneyland Resort Paris. It has always been a great wish for me to visit Orlando and i want to enjoy it to the max, but mainly i will have to visit it on my own. So please contact me on : jeroenmartijn@home.nl , if you are interested in Showming me around or join the experience!

Thanks in advance!!

Greets,

I've been a Diser for a year now but have never opened this thread before. I'm so desperately anxious to plan another trip but have nobody who will go with me. All the sister's have kids and even though I have 2, my hubby said he would take time off work so I could go. I tried all my friends but they don't have any Disney in them. (Yeah, right ! How could they be my friends then ! :confused3 )Anyway... Expedia.ca is having a good deal on flights in October. I asked my mother but she's headed down to Florida with one sister to her timeshare in April. I just don't have any luck ! I never thought about going solo before until I looked here. I would want to be sharing all the sights and rides and fabulous food with someone who appreciates Disney like I do. Has anyone ever met up with strangers and shared a holiday with them successfuly ? I would think it was very risky. What if you didn't click ? :goodvibes Elisa

Elisa,
I have never met up with anyone but most people are nice in disney! Last year I met a woman at the pool she was with her kids and husband, she told me how her husband had cancer and was doing treatments but they were making him sick so he decided to stop them and she didn't know if this was gonna be their last vacation together, but he felt good . So that is how he wanted his family to remember him! Thats what I would want! I wonder how they are doing? But what I'm trying to say is there are always people to talk to at disney most people are friendly and will talk to you and you can smile at the child who is having a fit cause he wants to go on buzz lightyear again and think thank goodness I don't have to deal with that! LOL! Ya know? I love going alone but would welcome company but there are plenty of people around to talk to. :jumping1: :goofy: :simba: :tigger: :mickeyjum :donald:

Have you considered the Disney cruise Elisa? We have a bunch of family and friends (most of us are single) going on the February 10, 2007 and would love to have one more. :grouphug: There's always so many activities and people that if you didn't click with any one person you could always meet up with others.

Thank you so much for the invitation and for the thought. That was very generous of you. I don't think I'd do the cruise ,as it's the parks I enjoy but I hope to do a cruise someday maybe for an anniversary.I hope you and the family have the best time , and that the weather is great too. :goodvibes Elisa

Now, don't go discouraging folks who want to go on Christmas! I did it last year, and with proper planning and the right attitude, it was a wonderful trip! Made all my ADRs and dinner packages, followed all the advice for getting to parks early and AVOIDING EMH at ALL costs! Take the midday break, see all the sights when the parks are overloaded...it was great.
That being said, I figure I'd try a less stressful time of year this year.

Be prepared for crowds. I've never gone over Christmas, but my aunt and uncle did in 2004 - said they never will again. Wall to wall people, waiting times in the hours for everything - did I say wall to wall people? Oh yeah. I've gone in early December - that way I get to see the Christmas decorations without the crowds being there. It was the perfect time to go!


In the past 6 years I have visited WDW during Christmas week twice, the most recent was December 2004. Yes, the crowds are large, but I would still go down that week. The decorations and the excitement of the large crowds helps to increase the Christmas spirit. So if you don't like the crowds but love Christmas decorations and music then take Sandy advice go in early December (I have done multiple early Dec trips as well). Otherwise go ahead and enjoy WDW at Christmas. :wizard:

I would love to be actually be at WDW on Christmas Day, but only if I was there with a special someone. I can't imagine anything more romantic than walking hand in hand down Main Street USA on Christmas morning! :cloud9:

You all are great although I had no doubt-Disney brings out all the good people! :wizard:

DH and I are BWV 10/1- 10/4 2006 for F&WF anyone else love it like we do?

Also VWL 12/22- 12/26 for Christmas Day this year (went 17-23 last year-wasn't too, too crowded)

Would love to meet anyone there at those times!

We're all Limey and ready to go. :bounce:

I'm traveling with my ds, his dw and two grandchildren, but we aren't planning to stay together all the time, so I'd love a chance to meet anyone else who will be at WDW then.

Hi Minnie,
Anything lime green can signal other disboards folks that you're "part of the club." Lots of us have pilfered Alien Green mickey head paint samples from our local Home Depot stores...check the paint department, they're obvious...and laminated them or whatever. Good luck.

Teresa, bunches of "us" singles will be there then. The big gettogether is extra Magic Hours at MK on Sunday the 10th. Meeting at the flagpole... PM WDWthePlaceToBe for more info.

CoasterAddict
08-23-2006, 01:27 PM
MM,
Mine are attached to the zipper pull of my fanny pack and to my suitcases...I guess you could also put one on a lanyard if you wear one...heck, hot glue barettes to them and wear them in your hair ...or make earrings. (I may have to try that last one myself. :cool1: ) the possibilities are nearly endless... :artist:

If you get the wet you can peel the colored "head" off the backing paper and then do with them what you will. Laminate them if you can, or get lots because they probably wouldn't last long. Although the actual heads aren't paper, they're a plastic-y sort of stuff, very thin and flexible.

--OK, is that more info than anyone really wants about them?? :rolleyes1

Minnie, Coaster- We found a button maker is great. Perfect size to turn LGMH into buttons and they fit on our lanyards (although I had to take off some pins-dang it!) and backpack. Also makes them weatherproof!

Good Disney day all,
I'll be going to Disney with a group of school kids as an "un-official chaperone" so I am free to do my own thing. We'll be staying at the ASM from 8-28 through 9-3. If any of you would like to plan a DIS-meet let me know.

I am a passholder. Nobody else in my family is a pass holder. I love just going for even an hour or two. It is great. Tonight I went to MGM. I saw the Muppet show plus did the Big Movie Ride. I ate a hotdog and headed home. I know that sounds uneventful but when I live just down 27 from the park sometimes its just the right amount of Disney for me.

I would enjoy it more if I had a friend to go with. I would love it even if I got to hang out with someone just once for the afternoon. Especially another person who is momentarily baned off of the thrill rides. I get so sad walking near TOT and hearing the screams. princess:

I live an hour and a half away (about) and went quite a bit in May when I got my Annual Pass ... I'm planning a quick solo trip in July (for ToT's 13th Anniversary) and staying at POR ... I'm then going back in September for a full five day stay at a place to be determined but likely an All Star resort ... And again in October for a quick night stay for the Halloween party ... and again in November for Super Soap Weekend (I'm not a big fan of soaps being a guy but I do watch them a bit but my mom loves the ABC soaps so I'm making this a yearly thing for us to do -- we went last year but stayed off-site at a free timeshare thanks to relatives).

So ... I usually go solo cause the few friends I have groan at Disney and don't get the appeal. I usually just do day trips cause it's way too expensive (even an all star resort) to stay overnight and I do only live an hour and a half away. I really can't afford overnights but I made two exceptions for Tower of Terror (and an AP discount for POR) and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party on October 31st (I know, I'm nuts for going on what will be insanely busy, but eh ... lol)

I know I'm new but if anyone wants to meet, just hit me up via PM. I'd love to make a Disney friend or two who can share my enthusiasm for the parks ...

As for my September 5 day trip ... it is RIGHT NOW tentatively scheduled for September 10th-14th. I'm not sure where I'm staying at the moment. Hopefully no hurricanes screw it up ... lol.

And I'm a 21 year old male ... kind of odd, I know, but what can I say ... no one else wants to go and I'm embracing my inner child again. As a teen all I wanted to do was go to the "other parks" and now I'm a Disney fanatic.

Possibly there for a BB tounament Sept 12-20th, my cousing is playing, and I might go for the weekend.

When is your next trip?

Hello... just thought I'd come on here and say Hi to everyone :)

I'm 26 and my job is really stressful and I just decided last week that I needed a vacation and I need it soon! And then I was thinking I really wanted to just get away on my own and do whatever I wanted to do... And then I was thinking if I could go anywhere where would it be?... and the answer is pretty obvious since here I am!

I never would have expected to do DW alone but I am really excited about the prospect the more I think about it! It would definitely be cool to meet up with people here and there though cause I think it could get a little boring talking to myself after a while ;)

At first I was planning on going sometime overlapping the weekend of Nov 9-11 since that's when the Festival of the Masters is and I love art a music festivals. However, I had my heart set on Coronado Springs, and that's all booked up that weekend (I'm guessing it has something to do with the Soap Opera thing!). So I was thinking maybe I'd do sometime in October to since the Epcot Food & Wine festival sounded really great.... but then today I came across the end of summer promotion (thank you board!) and see that I can save about $500 if I go then instead, so I'm thinking that's made the decision for me! I want to go for a long time for once (I've been to WDW many times when I was younger and most recently in 2000, but never for more than maybe 4 days at a time), so the savings is really helping since I'm booking a for a whole week.

So hopefully tonight or tomorrow I'll be booking September 22-29th at CSR with a park hopper, water parks (I'm so excited I'll be there when it's definitely still hot now!) and the dining plan. Is anyone else planning a trip the last week in September?

Sorry about the rambling but I am very excited to have finalized (almost) my plans today - even picked out my flights!

Is there a listing of the abbreviations?
I am having a hard time following converstions, not sure what some of the letters mean.

Just booked a weekend for me Sept 14-17th.
My cousin is playing in BB torunament at WWS, but any excuse to come down is good enough for me!

I'm new and I was actually confused about the same thing... but I found it elsewhere on the board when I was browsing through the other day! Apparently people from the board used to wear lime green ribbons if they were interested in being identified at the parks and talking to other dis folks. But now Home Depot has disney paint (of which the samples come on Mickey head-shaped papers rather than the regular squares), so they have been using those now instead/as well.

The other abbreviations I am pretty clueless! :)

The idea about the lime green mickey heads sound great!! But since I live in The Netherlands & we do not have any Office Depots....could somebody help me out & send me one.:idea: I will of course reimburs you for the costs!!

Who else will be in WDW 5-15 November?

Leanan-
I'd be happy to meet up with you one afternoon. I'm going to be at WDW from Oct. 16-25 for the Food & Wine Fest, and while I'll be spending the weekend at the parks with my sister and meeting her fiance for the first time, I'm solo the rest of the time.

I suffer from Meniere's, which is an inner ear disorder that can cause severe vertigo attacks (I push it and go on thrill rides anyway :scared1: ) but I spend the majority of my time visiting less adventurous attractions - Great Movie Ride, Narnia, Hall of Presidents, World Showcase, Carousel of Progress and my favorite of all time - Spaceship Earth (under renovations, I know :sad1: but gives me a reason to return in 2008!), dining and browsing in the shops.

It would be fun to spend an afternoon with someone else! I've been going solo for a few years now and never realized until stumbling upon these boards that not only do others go solo as well, but actually have a system for finding each other - lime green ribbons. I'll be looking for the people wearing those in October!

Not sure if this is the right place to post!
I'm going on my first solo trip in August. I've been to WDW many times before however I am a bit nervous but it's booked and I'm going:woohoo:

I've read a few of the solo trip reports on here which encouraged me to get my holiday booked and get my ADR's organised. Solo dining is a little bit daunting but I'm sure once I'm actually doing it I'll be fine. I've booked Keys to the Kingdom Tour and Segway so I'm looking forward to those. All suggestions/tips for solo travellers gratefully received!

I went last August solo, and had a good time. Actually I found the eating alone part fine at Disney, as I was next to families and could enjoy their conversations and enthusiam. I didn't book any tours last year. I am going again solo Aug 31-Sept 12. I would like to also take the same tours you mentioned, but need to double-check my finanaces before booking them. I have been working alot of overtime at work to pay for this trip, but then my car decided to cut into that pot with some real repair bill.:scared1:
Enjoy. WDW is a nice place to travel solo.

My Wife and I sneaked off to Disneyland in Oct 05. It was the most fun. No kids to worry about. Just us. It was absolutely a ball. We were the ones acting just like kids. Couldn't wait go go back again as a couple; so we'll be there again in November and can't hardly wait! :cool1: :cool1: :yay: :yay:

I somewhat agree, which is why I'm still unsure about a solo trip. I just can't imagine a year without going to WDW or DL/CA though.

Anyone out there interested in a trip from Sept 7. to whenever w/ free dining(currently booked to the 21st, but I'm willing to scale it back)?

Come on, someone's gotta want to go to WDW and make a cool new friend right?:goodvibes

I am going this Sept 27 with Hubby. We went last Sept also. Getting him to go this time was a challenge and he really does not want to go again. But I would like to make an annual trip.
I would like to make plans for 2009 alone, but think joining a travel group would be more fun.

There's a pretty big group who will be there the week around 9/7. See AANT's post above for the specific threads. You'd be more than welcome to join any of our meets. Traveling solo is awesome, but it's always fun to meet up with other DIS-ers. :goodvibes

And then we are returning Dec 6-13 with the Christmas Party on the 11th. If anybody is solo and want to hit the parks or grab a bite to eat with us just let me know. We would love to meet.

As I can see from some of the messages in this thread, there are some who find it odd that someone would want to go to Disney solo. I was a bit concerned myself before I went for the first time on my own, but all my fears were quickly set aside. I visited in Feb this year, and will be going again for a pre holiday boost this December.

I find it an easy pleasant place to visit on my own - and I have the opportunity to do the things I want when I want. When I visit with the family, I am always the trip organizer, arranging the schedule, worrying about whether everyone is having a good time, packing everything that might be needed in an emergency. On my own, it's a relaxing visit to happiness!

I'm excited about my upcoming trip, I can't wait! I actually think it's very sad when people concern themselves negatively with someone else's trip, everyone is entitled to do what they want and go where they want and TBH if someone said to me they think I'm odd I'll just say they should be more concerned with themselves then me lol. :rotfl:

I am going down from Sept 18-21 with my Brother and a couple of friends for the Softball tourny that is going on at the Wide World of Sports Complex and I planned on going to the parks for a bit but my brother and the others didn't really want to go. If there is anyone who might want to get together and go to one or a couple of the parks and the days I am down there let me know and maybe we can plan something out.

Thought I'd intro myself. I've been reading for an hour or so and I see I have so much more to go!

I am going solo (bday celebration trip to myself) :yay: , but I may have friends/family visit me. No one knows if they can or not.

I started making plans - ADRs and Segway tour - for myself already and figure if they want to join me, they can.

I'm going to read the rest of this thread and this forum just looks fantastic!

I have never gone solo before and the last time was during my honeymoon and I'm so excited about doing it this way. It will be so nice to do what I want, when I want. It seems like it will be much more relaxing. Most of my friends and family find it odd or wouldn't do it the way I'm wanting to but I'm much more of a solitary person.

Well I have a pretty "high-class problem" on my hands. I will be going to WDW twice for work over the next two months for a total of 9 days. First trip starts this Sunday and I will be staying at the Beach Club and then I will be at the Dolphin in November.I have a trip planned, well before I knew about my work trips, with my family in March of next year.

As an aside, anyone have any experience with the after 4pm tickets that they sell to conventioners?

This will also be the first time that I have been to WDW alone and I am having some serious melancholy about it. To me, Disney is about being there with my family and it is going to be hard for me to enjoy it without them. I mean don't get me wrong, I love it there. My favorite place on the planet. But I have always been there with family.

I have been reading this thread and getting some inspiration from you all. Thanks for that. I will let you all know how it goes!

Hi there... I did my first alone trip a couple years ago... and was very melancholy about it from time to time. It wasn't supposed to be an alone trip, but turned into one and I was a bit nervous about it. I mean, without having someone to share the magic... would there be any? :confused3

I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. :goodvibes I had a blast. I had more fun being silly doing the Pooh ride 5 times in a row because it made me happy... riding the AstroBlasters because I hadn't since I was a kid... taking a pretzel on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority and riding it twice... or just sitting a moment in the shade and watching people.

My favorite moment came when I found myself at the Studios... and discontent. I sat on a bench, racking my brain over what attraction to do next... unhappy that everything that sounded like fun was in Epcot. The following dialogue started in my head-- "Well... then why not go to Epcot?" "No, it's Studios day..." "Why not go to Epcot?" It just dawned on me that nothing and no one was stopping me. I marched to the entrance, got on the boat, and played in Epcot. :thumbsup2 Much better.

Best part about that first solo trip was that I met some fabulous people...cast members and vacationers alike. (Some even on here! On accident, no less!) I was able to take MORE time to notice the magic. Smile at first timers, wish people Happy Birthday, help someone with their stroller... whatever. You have more time to BE part of the magic as well as helping to spread it. It's really an unbeatable experience. :goodvibes

Now, I look forward to my trips with my family in the future... but once a year, I might just have to keep up the solo trips. Just to keep the pixie dust pile at a respectable level:lovestruc ;):lovestruc

10-13-2009, 02:56 PM
thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. So to follow up, I went there alone and had a wonderful time. as fun as going with family? No. But like you said, I was able to do things on my own time and without judgment. maybe I ate a cream cheese pretzel or three. So? Maybe I rode the haunted mansion 4 times in a row? Who cares? I may have even not gone to HS at all and I am ok with that.

It was a great time and I am glad I got to experience it.

Woodley,

Don't worry! You will enjoy yourself. I know what you are saying though. I prefer to go with my friends or family, but since they don't enjoy going as much as I do, I often go alone for a long weekend to relax and escape the stress of real life.

You will enjoy it after you get over your awkwardness. Most people won't even notice you are alone, since they are wrapped up in their own trip activities. The only time I sometimes feel uncomfortable is when I am eating at a restaurant. I usually just get out my map or even guide and look at that though while I eat. Gives me something to do! Do you have a little pocket tour guide? That could work also.

Those are both nice hotels! Have fun!

Wow! So I am usually just a lurker on these forums but I am just so darn excited for my upcoming trip. I work retail and this holiday was very hectic for me since I was recently promoted to manager. I decided when Disney announced the return of Buy 4, Get 3 Free promotion, I decided I was going to treat myself for my post-holiday vacation and my birthday. With the reviews of solo trips and the idea had always intrigued me, I decided to jump in and just do it. And I decided to be selfish and go DELUXE! I am so excited! I called and the reservation specialist at Walt Disney Travel set me up with a Theme Park View at the Grand Floridian with Club Level in the main lodge! THRILLED!!! I added on the basic dining to my park hopper.

Then…after even reading more here, especially the dining forums, I knew I wanted to try more sit down restaurants so I upgraded to the Deluxe Dining Plan! I know it’s going to be a lot of food but I am willing to take that challenge! YUM! I have been salivating for the past month thinking about all the treats that I didn’t even know existed at the parks! Some things I cannot wait for include the Butterfinger cupcake at Starring Rolls, the school bread or sweet pretzels at the Norway pavilion, I also am going to treat myself to the ultimate, a reservation at Victoria and Albert! I bought a new suit just for the occasion!

My Grand IPO has been AMAZING! Always keeping me up-to-date and knowing exactly what I would like even with just a few emails and phone calls. Marijane is great and is always prompt! She has gotten me pretty much everything I wanted in such a sort time and such short notice, considering the 180 day reservation policy. She is even going to plan a cake to be delivered for my birthday meal at Bistro! I told her what flavors I like and what I might be interested in and the rest is up to her and to ‘surprise’ me with the rest!

So here goes! This is what she has planned for me! Let me know what you think and if you have any other suggestions. I leave Saturday, so I don’t plan on making many changes but would love ideas on other snacks to check out or other little things I can enhance my trip!

So that’s it, in a nut shell! Plenty of food and snacks to be eaten in-between, plenty of photo-ops with characters and plenty of rides and parades and shows to be watched and enjoyed. There are a few ‘hiccups’ that I have come to realize with my timing, like the marathon weekend traffic that I will have to endure and the refurbishment of Cinderella Castle and Splash Mountain but nothing is going to bring me down! I am just going to focus on ALL the positives and take the rest as it comes. There will always be refurbishments and traffic and events that I can’t control. I guess this is my pre-trip report! I will hopefully have plenty of photos and details to report back on! YAY!!!!

I'll be at Epcot each weekend for the Flower and Garden Festival. The 11:00 Gardening at Home seminars on Saturdays, followed by the Master Gardener Talks, then the IFAS seminars after that will find me in Garden Town most of the day. Otherwise I might be lurking around known character spots. I love my annual pass.

Hi everyone. Im hoping to take a solo trip some time next year, looking at september atm. Never been to wdw before, or traveled abroad alone before, so this trip will be a huge thing for me.

Is it strange going alone? I think ill miss having some one to talk to, but love that fact i will be able to do what i want without asking other people.

Just looking for any solo travel tips, first timer tips etc.

i cant believe what i have read on here it seems that no solos are going to wdw when i am which is may 1st to the 7th. it seems that everyone is on the nuse.darcy band wagon for her trip but the funny thing is that from what i read she has at least 15 maybe more people going to meet up there so as i see it they may not have that much fun cause of the size of the group which is ok with me if they want to go as a mob then thats fine with me means more parks for me when i go maybe somebody will meet up with me who knows but this i know i am not trying to offend anyone for going when they are i think its great i dont like big groups anyway i just dont understand why you would post on a solo thread if you were taking alot of people doesnt sound very solo to me.just my opinion.:confused3

I know it appears confusing but it really isn't. A number of singles have developed wonderful and lasting friendships here on the disboards. Previous smaller dismeets allowed each of them/us the opportunity to meet. Through the years, and through many small dismeets, a larger group of friends has developed and now they plan an annual pilgrimage to the mothership.

If you'd like to meet up on the weekends for a couple of hours, I'm available and love having a park buddy.

You should understand though that this thread is ADULTS and Solo Trips Central, not simply solo trips. I'm planning a solo trip and looked here for solo info too, but understand completely that adult pairs/groups are being discussed as well.

Hope you enjoy your trip! Just three weeks and counting for you. :banana:

Don't yet have a trip planned for this year. My first adult only trip was in '08. Didn't think I'd EVER go without the family but decided I deserved it. What a great time! Never feel guilty about not taking the rest of the family...I went last year with my youngest. She flew down from college and we played for 4 days. This year I may or may not get to the World..I have a son I'd like to visit in LA. I could visit DL while there but want to spend time with him! So my Disney trip may have a to wait til next year. In the mean time I just log in here and read anything I can about my favorite place!:goodvibes

if anyone is going our time frame and wants to meet up, drop me a pm...

I just found this site and thought it the perfect place to maybe find someone to meet up with while I'm in Disney. I will be there from 19th July - 27th on my own as my friend has pulled out. I'm a bit nervous about going it alone so would love to meet up with anyone. I am a wheelchair user so if anyone does feel like hanging with me at all, I'll let you skip the queues with me!!!

I'm 25, female and love the thrill rides!
