Anybody else out there traveling in mid-May?

Hi Clare

As far as I know, Adrian and I will be there May 9 - May 16, and Vanessa and Colette will be there May 13 - May 20. Let us know what you are interested in doing and we'll make some plans! I know we are planning some "communal meals" where we all get together May 13 - May 15 when the four of us will be there together, so we would love to have you join us!

Unfortunately I go home on the 14th so the 13th will be my last night, am happy to meet for a 'communal meal' on the 13th or anything else up until then.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you expert solo/adult dis'ers

Knock knock knock...

can I come in?

Hi! My name is Angela and I'm planning my first solo trip to WDW for my b-day!!! (can you tell I'm excited? )

I regretted not going this year for my 40th bday so much that I decided to that I am going in 2009

I'll be there from May 12th - May 19th. I'll be staying at the All Star Music.

The only thing I have planned so far is being in the Magic Kingdom for my birthday on the 13th.

Hi Angela, that's the purpose of my May trip as well to celebrate my birthday (but my 40th) - I'm currently looking at doing MK on Wednesday 13th with a lunch at the Plaza if you're interested?

And that's exactly whe Adrian and I are going in May - to celebrate my 40th birthday (which is in July, but we wanted to take advantage of the "Buy 4 Get 3 Free" special )

I would imagine that we would all get together as a group for dinner on May 13, since that is about the only day everyone is there. Would anyone be interested in dinner at Le Cellier in Epcot that night? Maybe we could see Illuminations and then check out the Boardwalk afterwards (Now that the clubs on Pleasure Island are closed )

Hi Clare -

That sounds great. I've never eaten at the Plaza so that would be nice.

I'm pretty sure I'll be having breakfast at Crystal Palace before MK opens. Let me know if you'd like to join me

When is your birthday?

Thanks Rich! It looks like we are all in the same age group. I was afraid I'd be the old lady trying to hang with some young whippersnappers (disclaimer: I am not nor have I ever been anti-youth... )

The only definite thing that I have planned is spending my birthday (May 13th) in the Magic Kingdom I want to do an early breakfast at Crystal Palace and thanks to an invite from Clare, I'll be having lunch at the Plaza.

The plans for the rest of my trip are pretty loose at this point. Its hard because I don't know the park hours for May so I don't know which days I'll be visiting each park. I plan to spend at least 1 day at DHS and 1 day at DAK.

I also plan to spend 1 or 2 days at EPCOT mainly in the World Showcase. I have been to EPCOT three times and have never fully explored the WS (thanks to my kids who find it boring ) But since this is a solo trip, I can finally do what I want to do

I have a few restaurants that I would like to try - Kona, Yak and Yeti, Le Cellier, San Angel Inn and The Wave.

I too am very sad that they closed Pleasure Island. I had been to WDW 4 times and I had never heard of the Adventurer's Club. I only learned about it on the DIS when it was announced that it was closing. My boys and I went to the AC during our trip this past August and had so much fun!!! I really hope they bring the AC back!

OMG Rich that is way too spooky - although I'm 'celebrating' my 40th in May, my actualy birthday is in July too!

Le Cellier sounds great - can I ask that it's after 6.00 pm though? As I'm returning home on the 14th, I have to do online checkin at 5.20 pm.

Just a thought - if it helps - I'm staying CL at the BW so if you'd like me to I can ask the IPO to book Le Cellier for us, but no problem if you'd rather do it yourself.

Sounds like a great plan!
