<b>Welcome to the Adult/Solo Board, loeber</b>. We don't have a dedicated board for college students. There are college students on the teen board and you're welcome to visit here. You might want to visit boards for specific topics also (dining, resorts, theme parks, etc).

thanks for the info...do you know, is there a big enough demand to start a college-age board type deal?

Cool College agers

My DBF and I have both just graduated from college this December and will be taking our graduation trip to The World in Feb 2004 and we are stoked. We are really excited about going to Cirque and setting up a Fantasmic Dinner Package. Pleasure Island was kewl when I went two years ago. A little bummed about Alien Encounter being taken out. Anyone have any recommendations for 20 somethings?

When I first joined the DIS, I was pretty bummed there wasn't a college board either. I definitely can't see myself fitting in on the Teen board, and the Adults/Solo board doesn't have the gear I'm looking for either.

I convinced my DBF to go for our Spring Break last March and I'm an annual passholder until this March. I've already made 4 trips on this pass. It would definitely be nice to talk to some other college students though!

Cool

My first trip to Disney World was actually with my ex-bf who wanted to goto Orlando cause he used to be stationed there when the naval base was still in existence. I was kind of trying to think of a way for the two of us to go somewhere special together to spark up our 3 year relationship. Well, Disney was the talk of an old friend of mine who still takes his family every other year, so I thought I'd check it out. So thus we got our trip. The interesting part was that I met my DBF the day before I left for Orlando with my ex. I told myself as the plane took off that I would try everything in my power to enjoy and be romantic and spark some fire. But on the first night we had scrounged up a reservation at Nine Dragons and walked around World Showcase at Epcot. Well, we were surprised by the parade but kept walking, then about when Illuminations began we were standing up on the second floor of the building Teppanyaki is in at Japan.
I was so moved by the presentation and all the excitement that the tears started streaming down my smiling face, but my ex stared at me with a confused look on his face and just let me be by myself. This is what I call a romantic sweet Disney moment ruined. Throughout the rest of the trip, we both had fun, but not together, we fought and never seemed to want anything to do with the other. The redeeming factors of this story are first, I had a blast and have not stopped dreaming of going back since, my current DBF called me 3 times on that 4 day trip, and finally guess who I ended up with?

I'm a college jr, and I am taking 7 of my friends to disney for spring break this year. Actually, we've gone every year since 2002. The typical "go to Ft. Lauderdale and drink all day" spring break doesn't really appeal to us though, so I guess we're unusual.

I wish there was a college board too... or even just a 20-something board. I don't really fit in with the teen crowd (even when I was a teen, I didn't fit in there lol) but I don't fit in with the "solo/mature adult" board or the "family" boards either. So I kinda hop around.

I'm in college and I'll be going to WDW during my spring break in March with my b/f. I can't wait to go!

Hey guys, I don't know if it will help, but make sure to put in the survey that you would like to see a college board! I made sure to add it in mine...Hope this helps!!

Lightbulb College Board

I think that a college or 20 something board would be awesome! I would put this in the survey but I already took it and didn't think of it. I too was always one of those people that didn't fit in with the typical teen. So I don't really fit in there either. BTW I think I am addicted to this website. LOL I applied for the WDWCP a few days ago and I go to my presentation on 2/25. I can't wait. If for some reason I don't get excepted this time I WILL apply until I do. I am determined!!!

I am a recent college-grad, and I ADORE Disney World. My friends think I am a freak, but I planed a trip this past august for them and they had a great time. I think a college/20 somethings board would be cool.

Does anyone know anything about the Disney MBA program for grad students by the way?

Thanks, Kim
