You're in for a great trip! Just be prepared that WDW is ENORMOUS compared to DL Paris. You'll be exhausted but fulfilled every day.

Thanks

words can not describe how excited I am! I feel like Disney World is bigger than the Netherlands. LOL.
My friend joked that there was no difference, until I showed him the size difference on the map. I feel like I'm gonna be in heaven!

Cry! And skip jump and laugh. All at the same time most likely.
And then... I have no idea yet!
Should I go in a certain order?
Also, I want to upload an avatar but I'm soooo confused where to do so. Anyone who can help me with that? (totally off topic, I know)

Oh gosh, I don't know! Maybe MK first since it's the most "Disney" of all the parks? I usually like to either start or end my trip there.

Maybe you can tell me a little more about yourself and we can meet up? I'd love to see DW with someone who can show me around and is as passionate about Disney as I am.

I'm a 26 yr old Dutch Girl, living in Amsterdam and I've always been a Disney fan. I've spend about 2 weeks in total in Disney Paris and now I'm more then ready for the real deal.
I'm outgoing, spontaneous and easy going. I just want to have a good time and enjoy the rides and adventures of Disney World. Expect me to smile like a kid once I'm there, cause this has been my dream since I was 5

If anyone else will be around between 1-14 of June and willing to meet up, let me know
Greetings!
Well I'm a 25 y/o male living near Orange County, California, only about 30 minutes from Disneyland over here. Right now my pass covers both the Florida and California Parks.
I'll be traveling before I head to the parks for a business trip, helping a company out with their booth at a Hair Show the weekend before then staying till the 7 just to enjoy myself at WDW.
This will be my third time in my life there, most recently in January when I went with a couple friends. My first time was when I was around 7, and a lot of changes since then but for the better
That's so cool you got to go to the Paris Disneyland! I've seen models and paintings of it and some of their plans for the Alice in Wonderland gardens and really want to go there someday now.
Myself, I've been a Disney Fan growing up always enjoying the thrills and stories they're able to tell within each ride and even in the queues going into the ride.
Overall I'm pretty easy going, love to have fun and definitely always on the go, like to always be doing something but enjoy just taking a step back and enjoying the sights as well.
I'm always down for meeting new people and sharing Disney experiences. Open to meeting up and getting a group together if anyone else is around at this time as well

Do you have any advise on the other parks as well? I've got 2 weeks in Orlando and want to see Sea World as well, and maybe Universal?

MK first is probably the plan, I think.

@Gundamvader;

For me Orlando is awesome, Paris is just random and normal since it's the closest to home. Lol.

Unfortunately I can't be of much help for Seaworld or Universal ; I'm really only a Disney "expert". I think there are some boards on here for that though!

24 y/o male May 16th-19th WDW

My boss just informed me that as a reward for all of the overtime I've put in over the past few months I will have four vacation days next week. I'm thinking I really need to "get out of dodge" to relieve stress but none of my usual travel companions can bolt on such short notice.

Anyone interested in helping me not have a solo trip?

Disney is getting closer and closer and Iím starting to get really freaking excited!
My first set date will be the 2nd of June and I have decided to start with Magic Kingdom, as itís the park I want to see the most and I also did some online research and read that this park will be less busy on Sundays.
So, anyone who wants to start making plans for meeting up that day, or parts of the day, or maybe for lunch or whatever?
I will try to be there as early as possible!

Getting much closer now.
I arrive in Orlando May 31, but the 1 through the third are work days so only have the evenings free, and not sure how far our hotel is even from downtown Disney and all.
However June 4 through 7 are completely my own, but fly back on the 7th.
Will be park hopping through out but planning on starting mornings off on Magic Kingdom for the 4th and ending the 6th with Hollywood Studios, though might pop back into Hollywood Studios before my flight on the 7th one last time :P

Currently didn't really have any plans on restaurants or anything to check out, the one I wanted to do was already filled up but at Epcot planning on doing that Living with the Land walk through experience.
If anyone has any food places they can recommend to check out at MGK, Epcot or Hollywood Studios I'd be open. Preferably places without requiring a super advanced reservation

Star Wars Weekend will be at Hollywood Studios that weekend as well, so if you like the films you may want to spend some time there.

I arrive on the 7th and plan to spend the 8th at HS and then do MK on the 9th.
