But, it sounds like a good idea to me seeing the lack of pre-trip prep that has taken place on the part of the other attendees. Definitely do the anniversary trip, but I'd revamp the girl's only trip.
Alone.....I didn't even consider that. Mind you, I don't even go up the street to the store alone I would really like that, I would be comfortable, and do whatever I wanted. WOW I have NEVER been alone. I ALWAYS take care of everyone else, and financially I have to say I am starting to get a little aggravated that no one has given me anything towards the trip. I offered to do the hotel room and tix, one friend would do airfare, and the 3rd was covering meals during the trip. Needless to say, airfare went on my card, no reimbursement. At least I can change my dates and my deposit can go to another trip!

So if I were to switch my couples trip to WL. What do you think about a woods view? I can request a King bed, but I would be fine with 2 Queens (DH and I can totally fit in a Queen)....I don't think I will have the $ for CL by Sept 20th (our 45 day mark)

I hope everyone on this thread knows they don't have to comment ONLY on the WL and VWL. Sometimes we need to go a little off topic, but it always leads back to WDW Resorts, which is the important thing
Hey doesn't your hubby know the DIS is powered photos? you can't shut it down with them!

Go for it!!! I am a total wimp when it comes to being solo at WDW - spent 2 ngts extra due to a tropical storm, after a friend left on time and I wandered around lost and sad. Maybe it brings back too many family memories with my son, but I definitely am not a solo WDW traveler. I did move from SSR to POP and sometimes wonder if I could do a short trip, like 3/4 ngts, just to get away and relax, but stay deluxe...then I'd have the balcony and room service. Maybe an EPCOT resort because I think it would be pretty comfortable to stroll around WS alone.

I love reading about DISers solo trip!! (what would happen with the airfare? Is it on SW so you could get credit and use it later?)

If you don't mind a view of trees, why not? Heck, you'd be at the WL! With just a little PD, maybe even an upgrade to a CY view.

Booked Standard room CL. Just changed. Major PD...a PIN code. I didn't ask, she asked about CY and I was saying I was TRYING to budget...she checked the dates. Said yep CY with a discount, and BTW CL is available if you are interested....

I COULD NOT RESIST

(do the CL std rooms have the same view as reg std rooms? If so, at least you will be higher enough that it might not matter so much!)

A couple of things...

1) I sadly realized that we checked out 1 week ago... that bummed me out. The ticker in sig is wrong, it says we are going a year from now. It will probably be 2 years... I'm sad

2) While at the WL a couple of weeks ago (not sure what date) we had come back from MK on the boat during the fireworks (very cool, the captain even stopped the boat to let us watch). My DS and I were walking by the pool and we noticed people coming down the stairs from the roof where the flags are raised each morning. I asked cocierge about it the next day and she told me that they use that someties for very important occasions - a proposal, vets returning from Afghanistan/Iraq, etc. I thought that was very cool. Must be a great view of the fireworks, but I would be scared.

Now to figure out how to edit my ticker...
