    Hello Everyone!! :)

    I am in London until next Saturday and I am wanting to go to Paris for a day or two to visit Disneyland Paris. I was just wondering if anyone would want to meet up or join anytime next week. I would love the company!!

    Thanks!

    I am so new to the board, and also to the Disney experience. I have only been once...when I was very young. But I have wanted to go for SO long. But I haven't been able to ever convince any adult friends that it would be fun...if you an believe THAT. (Shaking my head on that one.)

    I am really considering, at this point, going solo. The point is that I'm GOING! :cool1:Of course, I'm very nervous, as I feel I don't have much of an education about what to do/eat/where to stay/etc. But...maybe, for the first time, over-researching isn't necessary?

    While I haven't booked an exact date yet, I'm thinking of going in March or April. If anyone else is going around then, maybe we can meet up for a dinner or something?

    (And yes, I'm totally accepting any recommendations on anything.)

    Congratulations on going! I've done many family trips and have done solo trips in March for the past several years and I always enjoy myself. Its definitely nice to get away from the real world for a few days. You probably should do some planning, but don't go nuts. Just be aware that you're not going to see and do everything in one trip.

    One decision you'll have is whether to stay onsite or not. If you do, Disney will provide transportation to and from the airport and within Disney property. You likely will not need a car. If you stay offsite, I would get a car. Some hotels have shuttles to Disney, but then you are shoehorned into a schedule and if you miss your shuttle, you'll have to get involved with taxis, etc. There will be those that will say you "have" to stay on-site to get the full experience. Onsite is fun, and I probably would recommend it since its your first time. Personally, when I go next month, I'll be offsite, mostly because I like having a car, know my way around and since the family won't be with me, I like to "do it cheap".

    Don't want to drone on too long with this, but however you decide to go: Just do it!

    Thanks for your response - boy did I need to hear that simple line about how I can't do/see it all in one trip. I mean, I know that rationally but it's a good reminder. I'm staying at AMA so that I can keep things as simple as possible.

    I love WDW. True story. However, my friends and family just don't appreciate it the way I do. :confused3 So, I was considering a solo trip when my daughter informed me that she and her husband were planning a trip to the world with their 2 girls, ages 10 and 11, and asked if I would like to go along! What a silly question!::yes::
    They are going for just a few days, October 13-19. Not long enough, imho.Since I live on the west coast, and they are in the Midwest, I will fly to WDW the night before, on the 12th. This will be a surprise trip for the girls, and I will surprise them by being at the resort when they arrive the next day. :banana:
    They plan to go to "that other place" one day of their trip, and the youngest granddaughter and I will spend that day together on Disney property where we belong! Shopping, swimming, a little MK action.
    After they depart for home, I will have 5 solo days. Yup, I am doing it. I have booked a Keys to the Kingdom tour, tea at the Grand Floridian, and dinner at BOG. Any other ideas for a singleton? Thanks!:yay:

    Hi, Suelala! Your trip sounds wonderful. I'm arriving evening of Oct. 22 and staying until Nov. 2. I'm solo some of the time and have plans with friends for other times. If your schedule allows, you'd be welcome to join me/us (sometimes another lady from DIS will be along) for any of these:

    Wed., Oct. 22 - late dinner at Captain's Grille, then go to Jellyrolls

    Thurs., Oct. 23 - free one-hour tour of Boardwalk area in morning, lunch at Coral Reef, evening at MNSSHP

    Fri., Oct. 24 - lunch at Sci Fi Dine In (one of my favorite WDW restaurants)

    If you'd like to join any of these meals, please let me know by April 24 if possible, so I can include you in the dining reservations. Please feel free to send me a PM.

    Hello all,

    I'll be staying at the Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter on 5-29 through 6-2. This will be my first trip to the world and my first time staying on property! I live on the west coast and as best I can tally, have been to DL roughly 15-20 times. The most recent being this past September. I'm looking forward to all that DW has to offer. There sure seems to be a ton to take in and flying solo should allow me a chance to make the rounds at least once. So if you see a forty y/o man giggling at Chip and Dale, don't worry it's totally normal! :rotfl2:

    Straight from The Netherlands. Present at WDW next week. Managed to get a criminally cheap flight. And Star Wars weekend and 24 hour MK.

    Sheer joy!
