I would love to meet someone who was as fanatical as she was that I could actually date, but leading with "So do you like Disney World?" can be weird sometimes.

I've never been on a solo trip, but now that I have an annual pass the idea seems more and more tempting. It would be nice to connect with other like minded people on here, though. Disney is always fun with others.
Never give up! Im debating an annual pass to cover some trips in the future, maybe ill find someone AT Disney! *a girl can hope haha*

Hi everyone,

Hopefully 35/m still fits within the constraints of the topic but seems like I'm in the same boat here in Athens GA. I work for a large University and it seems that other members of academia just don't get it. Heck, one girl actually referred to me as that weird Disney boy.

Co-workers joke constantly about if I went to Disney on an extended lunch break or I I request a leave day they'll ask if I'm going to Disney. Then I'm bombarded with the "don't you get bored" questions.

I made the mistake of taking a girlfriend to Disney hoping I could convert her. 7 nights at poly during a relatively non crowded time. She grumbled about everything... 30 minutes for soarin? I'm not waiting for that. I think that was the point I knew it was over. My princess would wait 120 mins!

So, I'm just looking for that disney girl that gets it...I know she's around and this is probably the most likely place to find her. Now if they'd just message me

Hello

I'm going to jump in too. I'm Kelly, 33 year old female from Louisville KY. I know KY isn't exactly east coast but it's not too far away, right? Nice to see that there are others out there like me, looking for a Disney loving other half. I try to make a trip a year to WDW, usually with my family since none of my friends are disney fanatics.

Unfortunatly I just found this thread. Its 7pm eastern time and I take off tomorrow morning 630am bound for MCO! YAY! I was supposed to meet up with an exCM lady friend of mine. But of course she backed out. So now I have a 4day trip, car rental and hotel (off property) and nothing to do down there!
I am continuing to go and make the best of it, but I wouldn't mind meeting someone who is Disney nutz like me. I am going to go do the free stuff, DTD and whatever else I can think of in property, also going to ThemeParkConnection warehouse and other randomness.
Anyways, im 27 male and ya... not sure what else, just a big Disney nut.
Msg me I guess and if your down there from tomorrow till Friday maybe we can go Disney shopping together, cause thats all I think I can do at the moment down there alone lol.

Here we go! 32F from South Jersey(near Philly) and newly single. I now know that a love of Disney is a requirement for a partner in life. And everyone is right - those who don't share our love for this wonderful place and subject, just don't get it I try to spread the love wherever I go

i was almost taking my first solo trip this year but i convinced my BFF's husband to let her go on a "girls only" trip. She is a fanatic as well but has not been to the world since 2003 - i cant wait to show her everything.

With regards to guys, everyone i meet thinks i am absolutely out of my mind because this is where i want to go on vacation or when they look at my pics and see the silly things that disney brings out in you they are convinced of it.

I have an 18 year old daughter but she is now a freshman at LSU so she is not able to join me on all my trips, so she wont be on my next trip but we are going back down for xmas (she already said her future husband has to have the "disney bug" as well because she is getting married at disney).

I am 35 from PA and i am a Disneyaholic and proud of it!!!!!

It was good to read this thread and no that I'm not alone..haha.

I'm actually going to Anaheim for a conference in two weeks and plan on making a quick trip to Disneyland!!
I'm also from Long Island. I will be 30 in two weeks and will be at WDW for my bday.
