Fun morning so far. Pirates always gives me problems photographing it too. Stupid low lighting!

Ahh Cinnamon Roll. I want one now, for breakfast!

I am glad that I'm not the only one that struggles with photos on Pirates. Maybe if I read my camera manual that would help.......hehe

Also BTMR wasn't operating when we were there so thanks for those photos too. Your Pirate photos are great. We got a few though we need more practice with our camera to get the right settings.

We had a delicious cinnamon roll in DHS. Don't know if it was the same as yours. Oh I miss the food at WDW...
Welcome back! I am slowly making my way through your TR. May I ask what camera settings you used on pirates?

Hmmm I'm not sure if the other WDW locations have the same cinnamon rolls or now. Sounds like some difficult research is needed - any takers?

Too bad that Big Thunder was in refurb for you. There always is something, isn't there.

I have enjoyed this trip report so much , Thanks ! I have, since starting reading this, had a great solo trip myself, if anyone out there is on the fence about going solo....just do it ! I felt safe and was in very familiar surroundings so no fears at all. Bit overwhelmed the first day at the parks but soon got into the swing and was closing MK at 1 am had to take a photo of the train station clock as my kids probably would not believe me.
All the resort cast members and people in line or on transportation were really friendly and most started a conversation, disney related or weather....had some wonderful sunny warm days Jan 24th thru Feb 1st. Loved the OKW resort. One problem was that you have posted such super photos I forgot to take very many myself...lol...in my mind I had already taken them ...mind if I steal a few of yours ? cannot wait for your next trip report.

I don't know DH had the camera then I've been reading up and trying to learn some more but it's hard to get it from just reading. I need more practice. DD2 is the best photographer.

Hello! So glad that you had a great solo trip!!
Ahhh, OKW 're correct that it takes a day or so get into the solo swing of things, but once you're familiarized isn't it just luxurious to be able to do whatever you want, whenever you want? Feel free to save some of my photos for your personal use, I am glad that you enjoy looking at them. I never used to take so many photos until DH bought me an up-to-date camera but then I realized how much I enjoyed looking back at them.

Hi there, I 100% understand your concern in staying in a hotel room alone. I used to travel a fair bit for work, so after time you do get used to it. Of course, always use your common sense and use all locks/deadbolts and know how to call security/police.

When solo at Disney, I have stayed onsite at AS Sports, OKW, & Pop Centiury and offsite at Wyndham Bonnet Creek, Bluegreen The Fountains, Sheraton Safari & Springhill Suites Sea World. I found the only time I felt sometimes nervous was at the 2BR Timeshares at Bonnet Creek and The Fountains. Because they are so large, you can't see all rooms at once. Then again, I just am extra paranoid sometimes.

For added safety and security, you really cannot go wrong staying anywhere on Disney property.

I actually took a quickie 5 night trip last week and stayed at Pop and I feel very very safe and secure. Because your room is so small and there are so many employees and other guests so closeby (those rooms are packed in like sardines) you have an added level of safety at the value resorts. I would definitely recommend Pop for the solo traveller.

Ok so now I've rambled on for long enough lol. As mentioned, I returned home several days ago from yet another quick solo trip and I am considering doing a TR on that. - probably will not for my December 2011 trip since I did not hit the parks and shopping and resorts is not as exciting.

But first, I am going to finish this TR up if anyone is still reading, that is.

Let me know if you're still reading this, post a dancing banana or something

Only 1.5 days left to report on!

You're right, I should finish this thing off! Since this trip, I have had 3 other trips so I will have to go back in time......but I think I will.
I'm surprised that you remembered
