    My shameful secret is that I hate the water parks.

    I know! I'm terrible! But in my defence, I hate all water parks and public pools.

    I've been going to Disney for years and years and I would love to say that there isn't one thing I don't like...but I really don't like Stitch :sad2: I also HATED the finding nemo show simply because i didn't like seeing the people

    My shameful secret of late is obsessing about a WDW trip which isn't even a lock yet. We are just talking about maybe going in April but I have been having a recurring dream where I am waiting on line upon line, taking various WDW transport and walking for ages and just cannot get there! You don't need to be Freud to figure these dreams out! If only DFiance would decide one way or the other! I even found shirts online yesterday saying "I'm going to Walt Disney World" and thought how fun it would be to give those shirts to his kids if we surprise them with this idea at Christmas. Argh!! I can't help but plan :(

    I'm guilty of the same thing. I'm always thinking about a trip that hasn't even been booked yet and worried about the little details.

    Yeah, I was Dole Whip-less too up until about 3 weeks ago. Ok, here's what to to.. BUY A TICKET RIGHT NOW, DRIVE DOWN THERE RIGHT NOW, AND GET A DOLE WHIP. Then just go home and undersand what you've been missing.

    HA! :rolleyes1 I've never been to a rope drop either...and probably never will... we are NOT morning people...however, we have closed down the parks many times, even after late EMH! :dance3:

    You too can have Dole Whip at home...provided you have a soft serve machine.. this company is a vendor http://www.unifiedenterprisescorp.com/products2.html

    WHY is there no smiley face licking a Dole Whip?:confused3

    My one friend is the same way about hating water parks in general. We had free entry to an indoor water park and he wouldn't go. I had a blast with my other friend that went. It was also my first time at one. I always thought it was dumb to wait for a slide and I was wrong. All I need is high speed slides and tubes. I will never chill in a wave pool or slow moving things @ water parks. When we go in 36 Days and if he doesn't want to go to Blizzard Beach, I'll just go by myself to do the high speed rides. I regret not trying the water parks @ Disney. I was always with family and no one wanted to go to parks. We just had no time for it. So this time, I have time slotted for it lol. Typhoon is closed for Rehab. That is alright, Blizzard Beach is more my style.

    I just did 3 days solo in Disneyland. My cousin was late in arriving because of hurricane Sandy but, I had a blast! :banana: Even the Halloween party on Halloween! Everyone is so friendly. The CM's all talk to you. I met two 2D friends from Disboards!!! :yay: And, I ended up buying an annual pass so I could be there 3 days by myself and 5 w/my cousin. So now I'm thinking of going again in the spring by myself. After all, I already have the annual pass!! :woohoo:

    I don't like the Turkey Legs. Tastes more like a hotdog than Thanksgiving. And when I eat turkey... it has to taste like Thanksgiving.

    I've been going for 30-some-odd years since I was a kid, and I have never been on Dumbo or the Rockets, and really, don't ever plan to. I went on the tea cups once, and that was plenty.

    Can you tell I don't like spinny things?:rotfl:

    Oh, and I want to squish Figment. (Don't worry, I won't.) He drives me crazy. :crazy2:

    ETA - Oh, and I've never seen a parade, ever, other than passing it on my way somewhere else.

    I LOVE my solo trips. Friends here at home think I'm crazy. "Why would you go to WDW ALONE?!!) It seems as if I am doing one solo trip each year ... Didn't exactly plan that LOL

    The one thing I've found is that I have to have plenty on deck to do. But that's a plus, since I find you end up doing attractions you like several times, and you have a lot more free time without people with you. Have a BLAST! When are you going?

    1)I wish there was an adult only resort, I love Disney, but not the noisy children

    2)I enjoy solo visit

    3)I do not like roller coasters

    4) To me, it will always be MGM

    5)I have no desire to ever stay at a value resort

    6)My trips have become more for the food and less about the parks

    7)I have a huge collection of Disney movies (just for me):happytv:

    8)I wish the Dis had like buttons :thumbsup2

    9)I really do not like the night shows, I think they are boring

    1. That would be pretty awesome...

    2. We've been doing a lot of Adult Only trips lately and love being able to go at our pace.

    3. Disney's a good place for you then! Not many of those, and only two legitimate ones.

    4. Ditto!

    5. We love the values, minus the noise, because we really only go to the rooms to sleep!

    6. This too. On a recent day trip I realized as we were leaving Epcot that the only ride we'd been on the whole day was the Mexico boat ride. We had a similar day at MK recently with CBJ! Although we went back later on to do more rides because I couldn't allow that.

    7. Our collection is shamefully small, actually. My parents have most of them so I assume I'll just inherit them when we have children.

    8. A like button here would be amazing and probably cut down the number of needless posts by 75%

    9. I like Fantasmic a lot, and love the holiday shows at Illuminations. I've always been underwhelmed by Wishes, but love the projection shows beforehand.

    I used to be so scared of alien encounters that my parents would have to force me to ride it... And to this day I'm a little scared of stitch's great escape because of that

    I have never had a turkey leg and I never will

    My nickname for fantasyland is stroller city, and I will only go there during extra magic hours to avoid the kids.

    Hey Irishman!

    There's not so much a specific area of the parks that solo/singles hang out in as much as there's a big community of people here on these forums that go to Disney solo. Also, there are lists on the forums about who's-traveling-when, and plenty of folks that schedule meet-ups. Seriously, lots of folks visit solo. I go once each year for a week on my own. I certainly am about riding all the awesome rides when I'm there, but I'm also a grown man. You might really like the feel of some of the hangout-type places in Downtown Disney.
