T minus 41 days and counting!!! Hi everyone, Happy 4th of July and welcome to my pre-trip report! I'm anxiously awaiting my 14th trip down to Disney World and this trip will be completely SOLO. Yup you read that right I will be completely by myself but no fear I'm a solo veteran. I've been traveling solo since I was 19 due to the fact that my friends and family aren't into the Disney "thing". Totally fine by me. I've never had a problem being in the company of myself, actually I'm quite independent. There is something so freeing about traveling by yourself, I suggest you try it at least once. Anyway before I go any further let me introduce myself... I'm Cheryl, a 26 year old who loves all things Disney. I've been hooked on Disney World ever since I was young. My first trip was when I was 5 and the magic was instilled in me. In my Disney traveling career (yes I will call it a career lol) I've been 13 times so far. With family, with my high school choir performing at Epcot and solo. I've gone during peek times and slow times, Halloween and Christmas. I've been to MNSSHP, MVMCP and the Pirate and Princess party when they had that in 08. I've also been lucky enough to go on two Disney cruises. I consider myself very blessed to have been able to go as much as I have and I realize that someday I may not be so lucky. That's why when I do go I try and do as much as possible and live each moment as it comes. I would much rather save my money for a vacation/experience than buy material things. Also As much as I love traveling solo I'm still hoping I will meet my prince charming and he will sweet me off my feet at the Most magical place on earth. I can dream right?! But enough of that moving on. When it comes to favorites it's hard to have just one. I can never give a definitive answer. My favorite parks would be The Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Favorite rides would be Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Spaceship Earth and Space Mt. Characters would be Tink, Belle, Carl Fredricson and Boo. See what I mean...I can't just pick one favorite there is something different about them all that I just love. I'm not a mother but I would say it's like picking a favorite kid...you just can't do it! How this trip came about was truly just having WDW withdrawal. My last trip was November of 2011 and in January of 2012 I went back to school making it hard for me to go whenever I want. Obviously education is important and sadly somethings come above Disney. So when I received a pincode in December for use this summer I knew I had to jump on it. I know that summers are packed, humid, sweaty but I don't care because it's Disney! I called Disney and booked a package with QSDP. Usually I only book a room and not a package but I figured I would go with the convenience this trip. I like the idea of everything paid before I go. Now I booked this back in December and it's been a lonnnnnnnng wait till now. I originally booked the 15-22 of august and well I decided to just add one more day. So here are the details of my trip... August 14-22 Wed-Thur Pop Century with QSDP 8 Day Park hopper Now I'm getting anxious and I just want August to be here. Stick with me I promise this will be exciting!!!
