Help Me Celebrate My 40th Birthday....

My 12yo daugher & i will be in Orlando during the week of May 13-17th in disney & May 18th in Universal. Sadly, I'll be missing 1/2 of my family, so we thought we'd invite our other family members, You know, those mutual diisney fans to a mini bday celebration. We'll order a nice custom cake for everyone to share & no presents needed, just your presence will be best.

My daughter is trying to throw me a 40th birthday where dreams come true! She's 12 yo, lol...She is picking out a custom bday cake from disney. We could never eat that much by ourselves. Would you & your kids like to come (the lobby of the contemporary hotel to watch the fireworks) join us?

Hello Singles!

@ Bethnde1~~ It will be great birthday! I have been a widow now for almost 12 years and been doing WDW every summer & more if I can swing it with DD and DS - 4 1/2 years apart!
Tell EVERYONE it is your birthday, be nice and let the pixie dust come your way! Wish we could be there, but we are booked for late August.

@ AllyC - Read up on everything you can on these boards before you go. I still stay glued to the boards every time I go just to see what wisdom my fellow DIS'ers have.Your kids are the same age apart as mine - that works well because likely every\one will do all the attractions, and if you are split up and someone's in the next row, it's not a tragedy for the little ones.
Have fun!

Feel free to ask away! Meanwhile - travelling this time and staying AKL and BWV with my BFF , also a single parent. We have 2 young adults and three teens between us - so keep this is mind if your plans include WDW after 8/18!

@melomouse Thanks we will have fun and are already so excited! I will take your advice and plan as much as possible and read up on here.

We are staying at POFQ I choose that as it is small and I think we are going to be in shock when we arrive anyway as we live nearly two hours from the nearest big city so it is going to be an experience!

I got free Quick service dining but I have booked a 8.10 res for Crystal palace Character brekkie is this worth keeping?

Also another question is it worth me paying for the Halloween party? Has anyone been to this ? I am tempted as my daughter says it will be fab?

Should I book and pay in advance for the photopass? any thoughts on this would be welcome? I thought it sounded good as otherwise we will not have many photos of all three of us.

Really appreciate any tips I think I need all the help I can get!

Good Evening Ally & Single Parents!

PQFQ is PERFECT! 1st place we ever stayed on property! You shall love it!

Someone else may have thoughts on the CP breakfast - we have only done 1 Ohana breakfast, other than that, character dinners only!

Halloween Party??? We've done it twice and it got better the 2nd time! Yes, worth - but take that day off from the parks because you can be up all night - and one must never miss Hallowishes! And your kids are a GREAT age for this..

Photopass - only if you need every single thing documented- but I know nothing - never tried it!

@Melomouse, I think your right Mickey's Halloween party should not be missed! I will be prepared for a late night that night! I am glad I choose POFQ as all the write ups seem good and I like the sound of the boat to downtown Disney also!
Thanks for your tips!

Solo adult travelers

Hi there! I'm looking for other solo Disney travelers out there. I don't have a trip planned as of yet but I'm thinking about traveling around the time of the Food & Wine Festival. Anyone out there? lol
