Live trip report - my first solo trip :)

Well tomorrow is departure day, for once I've actually packed early and not left everything til the last minute..... Have just done online check in, got an aisle seat somewhere close ish to the front of economy, and all ready to go now.
I did start a PTR this time (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3171064) but will be doing the live report over here in case anyone has any questions.
This will be a slightly different trip than normal as I'm going solo for the first time ever. I'm staying 8 nights at All Star Movies, and I've got the quick service dining plan. I haven't got any concrete plans (apart from two days) so will be doing what I want and when I plan on hitting all the attractions in all the parks, as we only tend to stick to the main rides when we go, so it's been years since I've been on some of the smaller attractions.
The only plans I've got so far are attempting the kitchen sink at beaches and cream with two couples I met on a disney cruise in 2011, and I've got a volunteering shift at Give Kids The World village.
Have got everything packed and ready, and setting off for the airport at about 7am tomorrow morning. Have just been looking on the net for some photopass shares but the only ones I've found are all full apart from that I think everything that can be sorted has been sorted, just gonna try and get an early night and not wake up ridiculously early!

If anyone's got any questions while I'm over there, ask away
