Great, katypop! We'll keep it within those dates then.

Maybe we could schedule some solos meets (group dining, attractions, PI, etc.) for a couple of days before and a couple of days after the Pal Mickey Reunion. Or we could have it coincide with the Reunion dates, but those of us participating in the Reunion would have to work around that and be limited in what we could attend.

What do you think?

Sounds great
I haven't started planning any of my days out yet so whatever is easiest for the rest of you is fine with me. are the flower power concerts still going on during may? that might be another place we could have a meet?

Any solos up for a meet in May, just say the word!

Some of us will be at WDW for Pal Mickey Reunion 2005. I'll be at Animal Kingdom Lodge the 12th through the 15th for that. But I'm local anyway and will be around except for 3/3 to 4/5 and a week in June. If there are enough solos who want to party at the parks (so to speak), maybe we can plan something on a small scale and figure out something more organized for later in the year or next year. Anyone?

Hi all,

I'm hoping to be there for a long weekend or a week starting 5/6/2005.

I'd also like to go back in October for MNSSHP and F&W followed hopefully by an early December trip.

I'd love to meet people who love WDW enough to go on their own.

Who's Going When...

Just to guide this along... I picked names out of the May solo list and combined it with this list. If you don't want your name listed here just pm me & I'll take it out. I had a real hard time figuring out when the biggest group of people would be there so then I figured I'd print the results...

And I'd like to suggest that if this is going to be an Annual Event (is this the second Annual?) maybe an Annual starting point would be good. MGM has a lot of good places to meet and be able to chat....like the Tower of Terror. It would be great if this could actually grow into something. I always thought there should be a Disney Solo's group (where Duo's would be welcome of course.

The list isn't complete...I'll still have some poking around to do to hunt down posts and combine them into the list. Any Comments you see are just things that struck me from your posts. Also I'm surprised to not see more "Project X" listings...although I forgot about this m'self.

Jenn

Thanks for compiling the list!
Yes, I am local but you can change me to available ANYTIME. I'm a wildlife photographer so travel occasionally, but aside from that I am generally at WDW.

The only reason I was asking about May is because so many seemed interested in that month. This year our Pal Mickey Reunion is in May so I'll be staying on property, but that's not an issue for me since I'm local. Any month is fine with me.

My dates have changed a little, but I'm still game for a meet in May. I'll be there May 4-6 as a solo, and will be back May 10-14 with the Dad in tow. And hey, he's a "solo" too so maybe he'll join in too. Or better yet, I've never been above ditching him to serve my own needs. And he knows that.

Soooo...

Any thoughts on a date? I'm still not firm on my trip but if I can get comfortable with the drive who knows...weekends become quite possible. I sort of feel like 7 hour drives should go with 3 day weekends.

In looking at my chart I see between 5/6 & 5/22 seem to be a good time frame. Perhaps a better way to go might be to designate May as a Solo Meet month, pick different meet locations for the same day of the week. Use semi interactive locations where it would be easy to converse as a starting point.

Well, I stayed up too late and United offered me a 15% off fare through ORbitz. There was some nonsense about an orange flag and coupon but it gave me a fare nonstop Denver to Orlando...so I am going! I just can't remember the date I've booked!!!! I think an email will tell me tomorrow, but it is after May 5 and probably Saturday May 7 for a little less than a week.

I'll be solo AND hoping to have my first Welcome Home as a DVC member IF I get my contract closed and if there are any ressies for that time!!!!

I go a little crazy when I'm on the computer late at night...but it will be fun if I can pull it together. Will post accurate days tomorrow and hope I can be added to the list!
Thanks...

Hi everyone
Well, my solo trip has turned out to only be partly solo
I have a friend joining me for a week, but I will still be solo May9-11 and again from May 20-22. I'd still be interested in a meet if it works out time-wise for others.

I'd like to see how many are interested in getting a pontoon boat for Illuminations Cruise. It can hold 10 adults (plus 2 kids) and costs about $140 without tip.
This would be a great MEET and we could head to Jelly Rolls afterward!!

Please post or IM me if you are interested!
Thanks,

I think the idea of picking one day a week in May to designate as a meeting place for solo Disers would be great. That way we all know where to go and when.
Seems to me that it would be very easy to meet people and talk at a place in DTD. If we say the marketplace side somewhere, then people won't have to use a ticket just to do the meet. And there are plenty of places to sit and chat with food/drinks. Maybe we should get something firmed up in terms of day of the week, place, and time?

Looks like I'm not going to make it in May. Took an impromptu trip in March and its Mom's 55th college reunion in mid-May (and she wants me to go). Plus I might be meeting friends in mid-June in Disney...given that I live in Atlanta I don't think I'm up for two 7 hour trips on such a quick turnaround.

But picking a date is a good idea! I know a bunch of people had dates they didn't want to do but thought they could do something close to it...soooo....pick one someone!!!
