    An October 2016 Solo Trip Report



    Hey, ya'll! Today I returned tonight from an absolutely magical 9-night solo trip to Walt Disney World! It was an incredible vacation, and I'll do my best to share my adventures with you here. Normally on a Disney trip, I average about 250 photos with my camera... This time I topped out at 562! And I haven't even LOOKED at my PhotoPass pics yet, so this is sure to be a photo-heavy report. Ya'll don't mind that, do you? ;)

    THE DETAILS:

    Who: Me, Myself, and I!

    What: My 13th visit to Walt Disney World, my and my 3rd solo trip.
    When: October 20-29, 2016
    Where: Disney's Beach Club Resort
    Why: Celebrating my own supremely elevated levels of awesomeness.


    THE CAST:

    ME: Billie, 35 years old :cutie:
    ~ WDW planning is my life. I work as a travel agent and my favorite part of my job are my Walt Disney World clients. I live in South Carolina, a mere 5-hour drive from WDW, but despite that fact I typically can still only do one big trip each year. Because, like, bills and responsibilities and adulting and stuff.

    However, somehow life has arranged itself so that starting with this trip, I'll be doing THREE trips within a 12-month period (PTRs for the next two trips are in my signature). That means also that starting with this trip, I became to owner of shiny brand new Annual Pass for the first time ever! Hooray!

    I am a single gal (bordering on old cat lady status), but I don't let that hold me back from going "home" and enjoying the one place on the whole planet where I feel truly content and in my element... WALT DISNEY WORLD! :hyper:
