First Solo Trip Complete

Time to start my Pre Trip Report! I am off next Monday and I wonder if this will be a looooong week waiting to go!


Who is going?
That would be me on my very first solo Disney trip! I am a teacher, American expat living in Turkey who has recently developed a Disney addiction after taking my Mom on a trip to WDW for her 70th birthday back in September 2009.


It has been 6 months now and it is time to return to the magic! The last time I was at DLRP was 1994 a very long time ago and it was still called Euro Disney then! Time has come to go and I don't live so far away!No excuse for a "disneyless" life!

So I am really looking forward to seeing all the changes - I am sure there are lots of them! I am also excited to stay on property for the first time - the Santa Fe. Last trip was a very short day trip out from Paris.

So hopefully in a very short while I will be starting my trip report!

I hate waiting! So to help the time pass more quickly I'll post some of my preliminary plans.

We've had some snow here this morning (mostly rain) - which just reminded me to check that I am taking enough warm clothing with me! I've got the thermals ready but need to check the rain gear - wondering if I should buy a rain poncho there - do they have them? How much are they?

I'll be flying into Orly noonish on March 22-
Taking the VEA shuttle to my hotel - Disney's Santa Fe

After checking into my hotel - I will head to Disneyland Park to soak in the magic of Main Street USA - and maybe get a little "homesick" and have something for dinner that I can't usually get here in Turkey - a croque monsiour, or bbq from Cowboy Cookout (Texas girl here) or a hot dog from Casey's!

I may start in Fantasyland for rides if it is not too crowded - "It's a Small World"! Just gets me in that Disney mood!

Head back to the Santa Fe for a good night's sleep in a comfy bed. (I hope!) I am looking forward to that - I am not on friendly terms with my mattress at the moment (very poor quality bought 6 years ago at the used furniture pazar - I know bad).

One of the things I am looking forward to as this is my first solo trip is being able to change my plan as I choose. I have loose plans with general ideas of rides to hit first/EMH/Fastpass but I am looking forward to going on a whim! We'll see how that works!
