Talking **SOLO Central - WDW & DCL**

SOLO travelers ONLY - Are you headed to WDW or a DCL cruise and looking to meet other SOLO DISers? Or do you just want to let other solos know when you will be there? This is the place!

Don't forget to wear your lime green ribbon (or the lime green Mickey paint swatch from Home Depot)!

This is a great alternative to a separate board! (Should have known Katholyn and Karen would come up with this creative idea!)

taswira, way to go! "They said it couldn't be done..." (insert appropriate music here).

I'll be a solo at WDW the next-to-last week in October. I'm looking forward to meeting anyone and everyone.

I will be at WDW SOLO December 5th - 11th. I will be wearing the Mickey lime green paint swatch WITH my lime green ribbons dangling from it.

This will be my 9th WDW visit, but my 5th SOLO visit.

My first trip to Disneyworld was 1988 when my children were small, visited every year since. My children are now grown up and I am now widowed but still get a tingle up my spine when I enter the Magic Kingdom. Visiting end September to Enjoy food and wine.

I just came across this thread and figured I'd say Hi!

I've got 10 Solo trips under my belt with my 11th coming up in just under 3 months! Hoping to meet up with others on an upcoming trip.

Why lime green? Where can I obtain these swatches and ribbons? Thanks.

Bill

Bill,
Lime green ribbons have been used by The DIS people for years to identify each other. Wear one if you want to say Hello to other DIS'ers.

Just a few months ago, someone on The DIS came up with this really neat idea.
Go to your nearest Home Depot store, and go to the area where they sell paint.
There should be a display for Disney paint. All the swatches are in the shape of MICKEY heads. There is a perfect lime green color called "Alien Green". These are perfect to cut out and wear on your shirt.

I'm going to wear the lime green MICKEY heads WITH my lime green ribbon dangling from it.

Hey everyone!! Well I finally feel like I've recovered from my December trip to WDW with my 5-year old and right now putting the final touches on my (first ever) Solo trip in March!!! Im still nailing down the dates but looking at firming it up for March 2nd - 6th. Im staying onsite but torn between going back to CBR or doing maybe Beach Club or Contemporary.

I don't really know how all of this works (and I did check my breath already...lol), so Im putting it out there if anyone would like to do brunch, dinner, a night out at Downtown Disney, or just share a scream on the Tower of Terror, Im definitely open!!

Ok... soooo about me.. 38, from Brooklyn NY living in NJ, work as a Tech manager, LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVES Disney almost to a fault... Im a tall black woman, if that matters and in all the years Ive been, have never done Epcot World Showcase, so I am very much looking forward to experiencing that.

Anyhoo... reach out if anyone is interested...

Hey there.....fellow huge Disney World fan here. I never even thought about going solo until recently. I have been very lucky and have always found someone to go with in the past few years, though. I'm contemplating on getting an annual pass even though I live in St. Louis. I will have to see if I feel it's worth it for me.

Question....does there ever seem to be good last minute deals for Disney? I think, if I ever booked a solo trip, it might be more of a quick planned trip for a long weekend or something and having a great deal attached would probably be what spurs me. LOL

Anyway, I'm heading to Disney in November with my cousin and her two sons. My cousin hasn't been since the very early 90s and her sons have never been and it's all we talk about when we're together. They're so excited and so am I.
