I have loved your TR....the photos are so amazing...glad that you got your camera back. I don't know how you delt with it, but it is so rewarding to here that someone was willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you got it back and in one piece.

FINAL POST: DEPARTING THOUGHTS

Thanks to everyone who has followed my TR to the end. Knowing I had even a small audience definitely helped me see this through to the end. It feels great to have everything recorded so that I can remember all of the details of our Trip well after memories begin to fade.

I hope this Report has entertained you, provided food for thought in Disney Travel Planning, encouragement to those considering a solo trip with children, and fostered the addiction and love we all share for Disney!

On a closing note, I offer the following:


THINGS I LEARNED ON MY SOLO TRIP TO DISNEY WITH DD:

1. I can travel solo with my 4 year old to Disney!

2. A 4 yr old can become a WDW Park Commando.

3. No one really goes to a Character Breakfast, Lunch or Supper for the Food.

4. You should not assume that a 4 year old would not be enticed by leftover food left on someone else's table.

5. The Early Bird really does get the worm!

6. There is no such thing as too many Princesses.

7. Sleeping toddlers make amazing shopping companions.

8. Waking Tink is NOT worth it!

9. NEVER take the "Magical" Express to the Airport.

10. There is nothing in the whole, wide world more amazing than taking a Solo Trip to WDW with your child!



AND...without further adieu, I wish you all the best in your Disney Plans and Travels!

I thoroughly enjoyed your report! I am so glad it ended magically and not tragically, even though it took a couple of days to end that way! I am sorry your tr is over! We leave the 30th for 6 nights. Myd dd will be 3.5, and I will be taking some of your advice!

When are you going again?????

Good idea with the phone number. I now have business cards in mine with a note asking anyone who finds it to PLEASE mail me the memory card or a disc with the photos in case God forbid this ever happens to me again!

Great report! Thanks again for sharing!


One parting thought.....ME got us to the airport early too but don't you know it, we stood in line for close to 45 minutes just to check in! By the time we did that and got the rest of our luggage checked, walked to the security and got thru there and made it to the gate and the restroom, we only had a 15 minute wait! Yeeshhhhh....travel on Sundays is really slow!

I really enjoyed your trip report. I wanted to say...I was on the fence about the tea party for my daughters 5th birthday (it's her bday trip), but after I read your entry for it, I picked up the phone and booked a sunday brunch. I am SO excited!!! Thanks for writing this. It helped me a lot a lot b/c I have a little girl the exact same age. I must say though..that my husband will hate you. I have to now go find clothes that are custom made..rofl

Thanks!

Wow - I would never show up to any airport 2 1/2 hours before any flight. I guess I would have missed that one for sure!

Have fun at the "Brunch". Is this the Tea Party or something else?

Oh, and as for the customs - watch out! They are addictive!
