    Going solo.. The 3 stages of coworker reactions

    When I started my new position, I was telling my new supervisor (who was my old supervisor...Long Story), the dates I needed off this summer. I was then telling her about my trip to WDW and she asked who I was going with for that trip...when I said "myself" she was like..."Ohhhh...I would have...

    The last time I was in Portland was in March and it was a rainy, cold, icy day. It will be nice to go up there and not have to wear lots of layers. I am not sure how much time we will have as it is only 3 days for work and I don't know the schedule for the conference. My boss and I are...

    My heart may explode in joy this weekend as I get to see one of my best friend's walk down the aisle and I get to stand beside her on Saturday as she says "I do" to the love of her life!! I never have seen her so happy, but I am sooo incredibly happy for her and I know there will be tears...

    I am patiently waiting for the "official" events to be listed as I have local friends that want to meet up.

    I usually am one for spreadsheets, plan pretty much every minute...but with this trip, it is just me. Yes, I did make FP+ reservations...there are a couple of things that are must-do's for me, there is really only one day that I have planned out (only because I got an ADR for Storybook Dining)...

    Tomorrow is my FP day. I am headed to my family cabin for the weekend, so I have to get up early, get in the car and go to where I get cell service enough to make the selections. Where my cabin is, there isn't cell service, so I just have to go down the road about 3 miles until I get a signal...

    Why did you decide to go solo?

    I am going on my first solo trip in August and I am really looking forward to it. I decided to go this year solo because my Disney travel buddies all have a lot of things going on this summer (DBFF is getting married June 15 and then we are all going on a 9 day cruise). So asking them to go on...

    Solo trip May 2019-it was out of this world

    I am doing my first ever solo trip in August, and I am excited about that main reason...I can ride what I want, see what I want, do what I want...If I want to sit and people watch, I can...I don't have to go...go...go.

    First time solo in August

    Finally got my old ticket connected and my FP date is on the 8th. Now trying to plan out my days. I will definitely be looking into the Tune In Lounge instead of 50's Prime Time. I looked at their menu and I could at least get a decent meal there before heading over to AK for the evening and...

    I think I am doing the same thing for the day of the party...Head to HS in the morning and get Slinky Dog FP and try to do walk-on TSM. Around 2 or 3, I am going to try to head to AK to possibly do some of the highlights. I know that on the 11th HS has EMH in the morning, so if I can't get to...

    I finally got my ticket linked to MDE and I have enough days to cover for the whole trip!! I also have 6 experience days remaining for mini golf, regular golf and water parks. I am thinking I may try to get to a water park my last full day in Disney. I was going to go to DS, but I can do that...

    First time solo in August

    Thanks for the info about 50's! I might have to look into that. The only snag I am having right now is getting the old ticket connected to my reservation. The ticket is from 1999 (non-expiring/park hopper/water parks and more) and I have been trying to find out how many days are remaining on...

    Has anyone had to deal with contacting and getting information from the group that gets information on old tickets? I had to send them the information about my old ticket that I need to get converted for this trip and I have yet to hear back from them. I had to send the information to...

    Do you carry a park bag as a solo traveler?

    It all depends...I have a Lowepro Sling 102 that I can "usually" carry all that I need in that...i.e. Camera, extra lens, batteries, cell phone, external charger, wallet, sunscreen). I also have a PacSafe Camsafe V8 that is easier to hold a little bit more like a water bottle and a poncho. I...

    First time solo in August

    I am not a big eater, so bars and lounges may be the way to go for me. I can get appetizers and be happy and quite full. Since I am going solo, I can try different restaurants or places, my group probably wouldn't try. The only place I am looking at getting a reservation for yet is maybe...

    I guess I should catch some of you up on why I have been a little silent on here lately. I put in for a new job within the Department of Transportation before the end of last year. Well, I found out in February that I was going to get the job and the middle of March I started. It was hard...

    I am looking to do the same thing on the 8th. Head over to MK in the morning and early afternoon (staying until the parade) and then heading out and over to the Contemporary to get my credentials, then heading over to Wilderness Lodge for my ADR at Artist Point at 4:45pm. I will head over to...

    I may try to sneak in a partial pool day on my down day. I am like others...I can be at the pool for a little while, but I get bored. Plus the one medicine I am on, I have to make sure I have sunscreen on my face at all times in the sun.

    FYI...I called on Monday to the Group Sales Office to see if there was still spots available in the group rate at the resorts and there were (at both Pop and ASMu). I decided to change my location and move to on-property and just hoped that there would be still rooms available in the group rate!!
