I am taking 11 weeks off work and travelling around the US!
Probably have about 3 weeks at wdw and then the cruise as well.
SSSSOOOOO Excited.
Heya Lauren, Im also from Australia (Brisbane, born in Tasmania!) and doing a solo around the states. Im currently working at Big White Ski resort in Canada and finish up here in April and then hit the states for 3 months. My trip sounds kinda like yours but just at a different time. I am doing 10 days at Disneyland and working my way to WDW for 17 days with stops all around the states as I go. I finish up in Canada again and the head back home via a 3 day stop at Hong Kong Disney. We should stay in touch as I might be able to give you some ideas about places I go to and I have a few contacts around the States which always helps when traveling alone. I am excited to be doing this solo as I have always traveled with friends/partner and being single now makes it very liberating just to go where you want when you want (selfish I know but everyone should do it alone once). Im sure your gonna have amazing fun. I wish I could have added a cruise on as well but I will save that for another time. Feel free to pm me if you want.

Catch you, Marc

Hey everyone!! Well I finally feel like I've recovered from my December trip to WDW with my 5-year old and right now putting the final touches on my (first ever) Solo trip in March!!! Im still nailing down the dates but looking at firming it up for March 2nd - 6th. Im staying onsite but torn between going back to CBR or doing maybe Beach Club or Contemporary.

I don't really know how all of this works (and I did check my breath already...lol), so Im putting it out there if anyone would like to do brunch, dinner, a night out at Downtown Disney, or just share a scream on the Tower of Terror, Im definitely open!!

Ok... soooo about me.. 38, from Brooklyn NY living in NJ, work as a Tech manager, LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVES Disney almost to a fault... Im a tall black woman, if that matters and in all the years Ive been, have never done Epcot World Showcase, so I am very much looking forward to experiencing that.

Anyhoo... reach out if anyone is interested...

I need a magical trip

Hi I am from NJ and love Disney. I am the guy who knows all the lines to each attraction's script and stay from morning until closing. I will be heading down in either late March or April and would love to spend a few days in the park with another Disney lover. Well, I guess we all are if we are here right? I am very open minded for anything, love to laugh and act like a kid but don't worry I know when to be serious. I work hard so I need to play easy so what other way to do it? I am open with my dates and have a yearly passport so I am ready. I hope to hear from you soon so feel free to PM me too.. Have a magical day!

First "solo" trip

I'm female, 34. Planning my first trip without the kids - going the first week of April. Will be travelling with some friends but staying in separate rooms and have a lot of time to tour the parks on my own.

A little nervous about this prospect, but excited as well! It will be so different to experience Disney without the kids in tow (what I am used to).

Open to meeting others who will be there solo at the same time. My favorite spot hands down is Epcot.

I will be at SSR May 11-17, 2011 -- flying all the way in from Los Angeles -- and booked the trip BEFORE I realized that there are a few D23 events happening during that time. I booked D23: Destination WDW and the Scavenger Hunt, but at this time, I am solo and can't do the event as a 'one'.

Anyone want to join me for the Scavenger Hunt or...a meal or...?

Just wanted to interject and let everyone know that there's a group of us here in Central Florida that have meetups at the parks to hang out together. There's typically always someone over there that would hang out with anyone that needs a ride buddy or whatever. We have a facebook group, called Florida Disboarders, check it out if you would like. I love going to Disney & Universal and aside from the other disboarders, I'm usually by myself.
