    I took a solo trip to WDW from November 8-14. The night before I left, I felt like I was coming down with a stomach bug. I don't know how that feeling went away by morning, but it did. John drove me to the airport & I got there before the Southwest desk was open. I was second in line & checked in quickly. The wait went by quickly & I took my seat on the plane. The seat next to me remained empty! I was pretty happy about that. We arrived in Orlando 40 minutes early- that has never happened before! Also- as soon as I arrived at Yacht Club, they told me I was being upgraded to Concierge. My room wasn't ready, so I sat in the Concierge Lounge for a while. I walked over to the International Gateway at Epcot & redeemed my Annual Pass. By the time I got back to the hotel, my room was ready.

    The view wasn't great:

    But it didn't matter because I was hardly ever there except to sleep. After getting settled into the room, I headed to Epcot. From the walk over to Epcot:

    I'm here, and looking forward to the rest of the pictures. The pictures of the walk are gorgeous.

    Oh, and I think your lack of a clever title IS a clever title :rotfl:

    Thanks! Luckily I did nothing in the room but sleep, so the view wasn't TOO important.

    Welcome & thanks! I'm kind of short on words, but I will make up for it in photos.

    Thanks! I'm glad you're here!!

    :woohoo: I've missed you! Did you start a TR yet?

    Thanks!!! I was trying to think of a good title & it was taking forever. I figured I had better just write something so I could start my TR. :rotfl:

    I stopped to watch a little of one of the demonstrations, but then moved on to the front of the park.

    I took the monorail to MK.

    I was supposed to have dinner at Liberty Tree, but I was exhausted & couldn't wait until 7pm. Plus I realized that my reservation was after the park closed & during MVMCP- which I didn't have a ticket for that night! I stopped there to cancel my dinner & went to Columbia Harbor House for a little bit of the vegetarian chili. It was really tasty! Some photos of MK while I was passing through:

    I made my way back out of the park & to Epcot. I stopped in Mexico for some guacamole & chips. I REALLY love the guac from Mexico.

    Love all the pictures :) I was at Food & Wine last year, and it was PACKED when I went. It doesn't look as packed for you.

    Great TR so far! Your photos are amazing. That was so lucky getting upgraded at the YC! We really want to go in November next year. Was it crowded? And were all the Christmas decorations up by the time you got there?

    Looking forward to the next update! :)

    Great photos!!! Everything is so pretty with the holiday decorations.

    Thanks so much for taking pictures of the Food and Wine Menu signs! I'm reading a few F&W TRs, but I didn't really have an idea of the prices on the snacks and treats. Very cool that so many of the things are available with snack credits!

    I :love: Columbia Harbor House- I am amused by your photos of the empty dining area (love that upstairs) and looking out the window at all of the people out in the park.

    Whew! I'm tired of all the walking and I'm just looking at the pictures. :laughing: Very nice pictures of the Christmas decorations. What time did you get to Columbia Harbour House? It looks empty!

    Love the photos! It is awesome that you got upgraded to CL, too!

    If I go with my sister and her family in 10 days (yes, I still don't know if I have to cancel my trip or not!) then I will have a solo day one day while they go to Legoland.

    Looks like you are having fun so far. Can't wait to see the rest!
