I have been reading these boards for some time now, but I just found this thread.

I am a single mom to 5 1/2 year old twin boys and we will be going to Universal (hope this is not the wrong place to post this) June 20 until June 27.

There are so many times I feel like I am the only one that traveles solo with children and I am glad to see that I am not.

Great thread, one which I will keep a close eye on.

I feel the same as you but I guess I have become used to it because I am a mom (53) to a DS16 so I have been doing this a while. For the most part I don't mind but this year we are doing a Disney cruise (3 night) and he is talking about hanging out with other teens in the Stack, etc. That will leave me with alot of time on my hands but I find that I do alot things I wouldn't have done 25 or 30 years ago, like go to the movies by myself. At least I can't argue with myself (lol).

I know what you mean. I am a single mom (37) to two DSs (17 & 12). I took my boys on a cruise two years ago and they deserted me!!! Don't get me wrong - I was happy that they made friends and I was happy to have some alone time but most of the time I was by myself.

I will be cruising on the Disney Magic from 9/23-9/30/06 with my boys. It will be a b-day cruise (oldest bday is the 23rd and youngest bday is the 30th). They have already said that they will be gone most of the time so now I am hoping to find someone to hang out with.

Any single people on board with us?

Hi guys

July 2-7 Universal's Portifino Bay July 7-13 Disney's CBR

Single mom me (30) & DS8. We have been to Disney every year since he was born. It was a big change to start going alone for the last 2 years. I always felt kind of bad because of that. So, it's nice to know there are others....

My DS16 and I will be arriving at the BCR on 8/18, probably right after noon, our plane lands at 11:00 AM. What time are you leaving?

I was just in Seattle (I see from your signature you live in Washington State) in February. It is beautiful in the NW.

I am traveling with my children for a week in December. For a few nights a week, I am sending my kids to WDW daycare, so I can explore the parks and ride some rides I would not be able to with my kids. I would love to join any other single parents for a night out exploring! I will be there on 12/9-12/16. See you there!

Any other single parents on our cruise?
