We had been going in October for several years, but this year we're going in December to see the wonderful Christmas atmosphere. We're also trying a cruise for the first time. DD (11) and I (46) will be on the Disney Wonder 12/15 - 12/18, then staying at the Polynesian 12/18 - 12/23. We'll also be going to the MVMCP on 12/20!

May 2011 - Polynesian / Hard Rock
Dec 2005 - DCL Wonder / Polynesian; Mar 2005 - AKL; Oct 2004 - AKL/BC; Oct 2003 - BWV/POR; Oct 2002 - Polynesian LVC

Hi guys, I am a single mom of DS 11, and DD 3. We always go to WDW, just the 3 of us. I know my son would love another kid his age to ride some of the wilder rides with. I always have to stay back with my little one and he rides alone on rides that are to wild for my 3 yr old. Our next trip will probably be March 15-20, staying at All Star Movies. Let me know if anyone would like to meet up!

Cool Single Mom and DD Living Near Disney.....

I'm a single mom (mid 40's) with a 8 1/2 year old DD, we live in Orlando, and have Annual Passes, so we go to WDW frequently. I do not do rides well , (Peter Pan, Small World, Haunted Mansion, Great Movie Ride are my speed), but my DD loves them. If you are going to be at the parks on a weekend or evening, and have a single child who would enjoy a companion, contact me and maybe we could meet up. She's pretty adventurous (she went on the Roller Coaster type ride in Dino Land alone this past weekend -they asked how old she was and when she said 8 they said she could go solo!)

We have a great time just the two of us, but I often wish there was a friend to take along - unfortunately most of her friends don't have passes, and it's a little pricey to "treat" too often!!! I have been known to go on Test Track to make her happy and I do LOVE Soarin!

Traveling Jan 2 to 6 2006 WDW

Hello, I'm a single mom, but my DD, well she is turning 21 on this trip we are making, but we both greatly enjoy the parks. We are also taking a 7 day cruise on the magic the week after 1/7-14/06. We are staying at POR (AKA Dixielandings).

Anyways, my daughter used to be a cast member at DL in CA and is planning on meeting up with some of her cast member buddys so I will be spending some of my evenings alone. So if anyone is interested in meeting up for drinks and the like let me know. And of course on the cruise.

Thanks Susan

I am cruising on the DISNEY WONDER next week December 8-11, 2005. I am a thirty-six year young businesswoman with two young daughters 8 and 11. They are so very excited. I am too! We just moved from Knoxville, TN to Indianapolis, IN after my divorce. Their real dad passed away in December 2000 so I am anxious to broaden my circle of friends on the high sea. Romance IS an option. ha! giggle! ha!

Hello All,

I am going to be arriving in Orlando night of Dec 7th in case any of the SINGLE FATHERS want to get "two-gether" in Orlando that night. Just call me 1-865-406-8872, or email me as I will have my IPAQ with me.

My two daughters are soooooooo excited about this trip. It is freezing and snowing here this week so we cannot wait to meet everyone!

I'm a single mom with two: Boy will turn 8 on April 23 and daughter is 5 1/2.
Will be staying at Pop Century the first part of the week, and then 2 nights at Animal Kingdom to top it off. Any other single moms out there going those dates? Hoping to team my boy up with a pal for the faster rides (they make me too dizzy!).
