Another single mom chiming in. SuddenlyObsessed, I'd be so interested to hear how you find DCL, I've heard they even do events especially for single parents...keep me posted.I am a single mom with an 11 year old son. We travel alone to WDW at least once a year--our next trip is in 30 days! (August 15-31, WDW, DCL and Universal). I find our trips to be a great time to reconnect, after all the craziness of work/school/sports etc throughout the year. This will be our first time on DCL, and I'm sure my son will like the interaction there with the other kids, but I find one of the great things about Disney is I don't feel awkward traveling alone with my child, we both have so much fun and most people are so friendly (on the buses, in lines, etc.). We always end up meeting and talking to other families and my son always finds a friend his age at the pools to play with too. To the OP, I wish our trips were overlapping, I totally would be up for coordinating a meet!
That sounds great! I've wanted a Single Parents Disney Vacation Meet Area (similar to the Cruise Meets). It will be nice to know other single parents traveling on the same cruise, staying at the same resorts, visiting the same parks, etc. at the same time.We should start a thread with dates of trips in case people are interested in meet-ups. I'll check others for a format, and start one.
