Return from Disney

ok well i did it - one day at WDW and two at the rival park with the name that rhymes with toon-iniversal.

Day at WDW went like this:

Free shuttle from Hotel to Epcot

Didnt make Soarin, (big queue for this) Spaceship Earth
Mission: SPACE x 2 (no queues)
Test Track was closed

Boat to Hollywood Studios

Tower of Terror
Aerosmith Rollercoaster (EuroD one is better IMO)
Star Tours (this one is much better than at EuroD)

Bus to AK

Expedition Everest (this was probably the best ride of the day)
Kali River rapids (this was quite tame)

Bus to monorial - to MK
SPace Mountain (one at EuroD is better IMO)

Shuttle to Epcot
the world showcase

Very good - no issues/ worries as a single traveller at all. Disney staff are courteous and helpful and there are many other solos there (met with one on site).

Hi everyone....

I'll be solo at WDW from Monday evening, April 8th till Wednesday afternoon, April 10th. Would love to meet up for meals, attractions, tours, etc if anyone is interested! Staying at Riverside.


ETA - Posted on the Sea World board but adding here!

I'm going to be at POR w/ my sisters in April, they are leaving a couple days before me so I'll be solo. I am contemplating going to Discovery Cove on Tuesday, April 9th and while I don't mind doing solo thought it might be fun if anyone else was interested. I'm not doing the Dolphins, just going to spend the day snorkeling and enjoying the other stuff. (I've never been)

My plan was to take a car service that day (Tiffany probably) since I'm not renting so $80 rt.

Anyhoo...if anyone is interested PM me.

Going by myself for the first time. Staying at all star. It will be different without the two usual university students in tow. I'm interested to see what a 50 yr old goes on by himself

This 54-year-old rides Rock-n-Rollercoaster 3 times in a row when she is solo; I highly recommend it!

Well, this 54 year old isn't much into coasters, but when I'm solo, I've been known to do a mini-Test Track single rider marathon... (Repeat Big Thunder Mtn rides when its quiet is fun too)

Just 2 weekends ago got the chance to visit the newly redesigned Test Track and it is great! Being able to design a car is fun, then competing against the others in your vehicle in performance, economy, etc. is a bonus. They did a great job with it, IMHO.

Last weekend had a short visit to DHS, only 1 ride on the RnR but as exhilarating as ever. BTW, I don't like coasters either, but somehow the RnR is different.

Solo 3/6 - 3/18

Hi I will be solo 3/6 - 3/18 I would love a rope drop pal mostly for MK Any day 3/7 - 3/10 but could meet in the park later in the day as well.
Have to work 3/11-3/15 but I could do dinner or parks at or after 6pm then .

I went solo last year and had fun but the lines and rides would be more fun with a buddy... I got bitten by the Disney bug so I can't wait to go back!

A meal would be cool too.. I am open to any Disney / DTD spot.

I met a guy from the Dis board last year for Hoop Dee Doo and it was a blast.

I'm 42, down to earth guy, and I enjoy low drama / nice people of all shapes sizes and ages.

Solo last week of March

Hi all

Will be solo the last week of March, exact dates are TBD based on how friendly Southwest airlines is feeling. Very last minute trip, need to escape reality for a bit.

28yrold female from the Toronto area. Send me a PM if you'd be interested in getting together.

Cheers!
