Single mom to a 4yo girl and we've traveled tons!! We've done WDW 3 times and going on the Dream on April 25, but this will be our first trip where it's just the two of us, or we're not meeting anyone at our destination, but I'm super excited!

Single mom to 4 year old girl traveling to wdw for our third visit together. I am a little nervous, as this is our first time on vacation just the two of us. We are going the week immediately following Memorial Day. Hoping for reasonable crowds and lots of fun.

Same here, we've always gone with a group or met someone when we got to our destination. Excited though!!

Don't worry single moms. You can do it and it will be great. I've been traveling alone with my daughter since she was 4 and we always have such a great time. We've done non Disney and Disney vacations. It's a great chance for very special memories.

Greetings, single parents!! I am a single mom to a 6 year old boy and 5 year old girl. I grew up going to Disney about once a year, and am taking my kids for the first time in May! My mom is going with us, and we are soooo excited! Thanks for starting this thread!

Hello again, my babies and I are heading back to Disney for our 3rd trip overall and our 2nd summer trip. Very excited, but I haven't told them yet. I want dd to finish the school year before I tell them.

We first went in 2010 when dd was 7 and ds was 10 months. Now, dd is almost 10 (and will be 10 when we go) and ds is 3 years-old. 3 has meant a vocabulary explosion for him. I was actually thinking of going to the beach this summer, but you should have heard his plea for a Disney vacation.

Oh mommy it is so beautiful there. I can't wait to go. Can we go? Can we go see Mickey? Please mom. Pleeeeeaaassseee?

There went my plans for the beach.

Instead of going during a long break like fall or springbreak, we will take off when they have just long weekend breaks. This way I only have to take them out 1 or 2 days from school. That's why we go over Thanksgiving break or like to most. They are already out of school for the Wed-Fri, so I just add that previous Mon and Tues. I know they don't ususally have tests those days and so they aren't missing much of anything. I know most people like to spend the 'holidays' with family, but we plan trips over fall/springbreak or summer/winter for family trips instead.

I'm a teacher and I do know that some school districts allow for study leave if you relate your vacation to the state standards. You will be surprise how you can plan lessons around Disney.

I've been trying to get an ARD for Crystal Palace the morning of the 29th. Yes, we can meet up.

I noticed you are from Georgia. We are from Alabama.
