It's only level 1 & 2 crowds my week, I'm going solo, and I'm on property and have hoppers. I guess I couldn't mess it up TOO badly. :smile:
Are you going to WDW? A solo trip sounds great. Any particular reason?

If so, then its just the dining experience to worry about.

I go to WDW once a year solo. Love it! Started out as me taking solo trips because I get much more vacation than my spouse, but then I got hooked on WDW solo. Also, I started only going during one of the few really quiet weeks each year, which I love. I'm there Jan 22 to 28 this year.

Last year I tried to go the super budget route staying really inexpensively off-property and not park hopping, but this year I just looked for a few months until I found a great deal including air fare and on-property. I found that I really prefer being on site. (Expedia - AMAZING deals at Disney resorts, but only on those super low weeks.) I went for the ASMusic this time since I'd only been to the Pop in the budgets.

I end up in Philly and NYC for conferences sometimes, so I'm used to traveling alone and have come to like it.

Anyhow. I'm rambling!

Rambling is good. This is the Old Fogies thread, remember?

I was just saying elsewhere ... Back to the drawing board. Grrrrrr.

Three different calendars I have looked at for crowds/EMH/parks hours do not match up for opening and closing and EMH times. Of course I based my trip plans on one, and then noticed two others didnt agree with that or anything else. I'm going with the official Disney site hours, obviously. Glad I looked! And that, my friends, for me, is the end of third-party apps! Never again. Official only from now on!

(pretending as if I won't enjoy re-planning ... LOL)

That's annoying. You would think that at 2 months out, there would be some degree of correctness in the non-official sites; particularly at WDW where the opening hours are distribute months in advance.

enjoy the replanning.
