I did it!! Solo trip is booked

I finally pulled the trigger and booked my solo trip.
With the discount on gift cards that HEB was running I paid for the whole trip with Gift cards and saved a bunch. $50.00 savings per $300 gift card. my savings after the room savings was an additional $350.00 the bargin hunting and savings is a big thrill for me> I enjoy that and the planning as much as the trip.
I booked Port Orleans Riverside from Jan 22 - Jan 25 with 7 day hopper and then AKL Savanah view from Jan 25 thru Jan 28.

I am so excited.

Solo trip may be canceled. But all is good. My sons boss may give him the days off finally to go with me. I am so excited. But either way, I'm going to Disney World.

So not cancelled, just not solo any longer. I was afraid you had to cancel completely, which would be sad. I'm glad you will get to go either way! My solo trip is still on, but my resort is totally up in the air.

Riverside is my resort of choice for my solo trips. I always ask for AB. I love the early morning stroll to the food court! You are going to have an amazing time - solo or not!!
