I am not a huge dole whip fan in the first place so for me adding rum to pineapple slush stuff does not "blow my dress up". And besides, as the good Pyrate would probably tell you, rum does not need to be "watered" down by mixers. . .

Welcome Bettyann29 and Aertan. Please feel free to pull up a bar stool and have a drink. We are kinda slow on the weekends (apparently people actually do stuff on the weekends). Just join in to the conversation. . .if you don't like the current topic, just wait, it will change shortly, or start your own convo. People will just join in.

As much as I'm an advocate for going solo, I have to say this; After going for a few days last week for my birthday. I've come to realize that going solo isn't fun for me anymore. I'm a semi-local (about a 2 hour drive) and I used to go about once a month for a weekend. But after going alone this past weekend, I just didn't have fun anymore. I spend more time in my room than at any of parks because I just wasn't into it anymore. I don't know if it was because I kept on getting all the sad looks when CM's found out I was solo for my birthday or what. But going solo isn't fun for me anymore. I need more Disney friends who will be up for a day or weekend trip instead of just me going down and hoping someone will be there to hang out. Ugh.

I've been solo several times.. After the first time I vowed to never do it again.. I didn't enjoy it very much- I noticed I spent a lot more time in my room..I decided to give it a go a second time and lucked out that a friend wax going to be there for a few of the days I was there.. I realized that I liked having some solo time but could also hang with her.. This last time I actually stayed with my friend and split my time between solo and spending time with my friend..

I do agree that it's more magical spending time with others while at WDw..

I hear where you're coming from on the solo thing. On the plus side, I'd much rather be solo than toting around WDW with someone who has a diffrent touring strategy. I'm the type of person who likes to take it easy and relax with a drink at a bar or an outside table for a while. In the past it's driven me nuts while relaxing when I'm hounded with 'What are we doing next?', 'Let's keep moving!'. I really enjoy my solo time in World Showcase and Animal Kingdom where I take my time and stroll the pavillions or animal walks.

Where I do get a little lonely is the parks like MK and HS, where I like hitting the rides with other folks. Even if I'm down visitng with my parents, I'm usually waiting in ride lines solo, as they don't hit most of the 'thrill' type rides.

October still seems like a great time to visit, as with the F&W Fest going on, there's usually a few DISers down in the parks throughout the month to meet up with. The F&W seminars are also great to hit solo, and most people attending are very chatty and friendly in the seminar/event lines.

I did a solo trip once. That was May 2011 over a Star Wars Weekend. I only did it because I could do an all expenses paid trip for 3 nights for $250 (since I had airfare credit thru Southwest, and annual pass and DVC points). I actually enjoyed it and won't shut down the possibility of doing it again.

That said, I agree, it is more fun with a ride buddy! That was the downside, but I was glad to do things on my own watch and not have to give a care about what anyone else wanted to do. I do think if I do it again, I'll poll my fellow solo DISers and see if they want to meet up for rides and such. It could be a fun experience!

"Good Pyrate" as in, Very skilled and effective in his Pyrating ways. Not "Good Pyrate" in the Well Behaved and law abiding manner.
