Hello again! Melo Mouse I am so touched by your post. How was your trip? I'm from Austin Tx. Can't wait to hop Jet Blue and go back. I cry at Fantasmic, Wishes, Illuminations, and The Little Mermaid. Hmmmm... I think that's it but I haven't seen Beauty and the Beast Show at H.S. yet.

Hello again, Melo Mouse I'm touched by your last post. I cry at Wishes, Illuminations, The Little Mermaid, Fantasmic, hmmmm I havent' seen Beauty and the Beast at H.S. yet but I'm sure I can add it. I'm from Austin Tx. I play the fiddle (30 years) and yes, love to horse back ride. I know they wouldn't let me but I've always had this fantasy that I could take my fiddle into Frontier Land and set up on the porch of Country Bear Jamboree and just play a hoe down or Woody's Round Up.
Soon as I can gather up the funds I'll let you guys know. I can't wait!!

I normally arrive that Saturday, but I had to forgo my trip this year, since my mom is having surgery that week.

But I will be there next year!

Last week I was up in Connecticut visiting my daughter, and I was quickly reminded why I moved to Florida. The Gulf Coast is a great part of Florida. You should move to Florida...the water is fine, and it is great being so close to WDW.

Sharing March Dining

I'm reviving an old thread since I have a solo trip coming up in March and would like to share any of my meals if anyone is interested. Not doing any signatures this trip. This is what I have:

Mama Melrose on March 2 earliest dinner
Kona Cafe on March 3 lunch
Yak & Yeti on March 4 late lunch
Via Napoli on March 5 lunch
Kouzzina on March 6 late breakfast
Ohana on March 7 late dinner

If a shared meal with a 62 year old grandma appeals to you, let me know.

Jeralyn

Anyone in September? My dates are Sept 6 to 13. I've done a solo trip before and loved it....but it was during Christmas and there were many Christmas related thing to do that DS would never have been interested in. But I feel like I did everything I wanted to do on that trip and don't really need to again. Like lots and lots of shopping time.

My September trip wasn't supposed to be solo, but things change. I hate to postpone because I'll be on the tail end of an AP that didn't get the use I planned. I bought it during a trip last Sept, planning to go again in April and September. The April trip didn't happen, and if I don't go again before it expires, I'll have used it only for one 7 day trip. If not for that I'd postpone until Christmas time again.

I'm just thinking I'm going to be bored solo in September since there is nothing special going on.

As far as being bored, don't worry too much about that. I've gone solo only a couple of times (so far) and I admit it was a daunting thought at first. I thought too that I'd be bored, turned out just the opposite. If there's a thing you sort of want to do, but don't have to, do it. Such as...I always wanted to casually walk the grounds of Grand Floridian and the mosey over to the Poly but who else would want to take vacation time in WDW to do such a thing? It was perfect when I was solo.

Little things like that, going over to a resort just to see it, or taking a nap in the afternoon, or spending an entire morning in one of the spas or fast passing just the coasters and riding them all....or watching the gorillas in AKP , having a cappuccino on the side street off Main, etc., etc. these (to me anyway) make a solo trip special. Check out the flag ceremony on Main Street at 5:00 one day, or eat at one of the high end restaurants you want to try. Brown Derby comes to mind, I enjoyed it very much when I was there solo.

Just some suggestions, enjoy your alone time!

DeeCee, Funny you should mention taking a walking tour of some of the resorts, as a family we, on purpose, make ADR's for some of the resorts and arrive before the check in time or hang around after dinner just so we can take a little self tour of the grounds. It is most enjoyable.

I am or rather I should say my daughter and I are heading to WDW April 27 and checkout May 7th, the day after my birthday. Staying at Pop this time. Then my deceased husbands niece and her daughter are joining us on may 1st, they are staying in AoA, Little Mermaid. So I will see AoA for the first time since being built.

After such a freezing cold winter here in Ohio, I am a little intimidated by the warmth I expect we might have while there. No time for my ole body to adjust.

Before heading to WDW, I am arriving a few days early in Florida to visit with some childhood school friends who have moved down to Florida.

We got our Magic Bands in the mail yesterday, I must say they are lighter weight than I thought they might be, but since I NEVER wear anything on my wrist they are a bit annoying at first, something I think I can get used to.

So Looking forward to having a great time, and enjoying the Flower and Garden.

Hi DisMom!

I hope you enjoy your Spring trip
I'm going in mid-May, just for a few nights. I didn't realize it's Star Wars weekend in DHS. I'm a fan of the original (dating myself but have never been there during this time, so it should be interesting. Really I just want to hit some good rides and see the parade. Other than that, I think we'll do alot of relaxing at the resort, and some resort hopping.

We are staying at Wilderness Lodge Villas, a first time for both of us (travelling with a friend this trip). So, I'm excited just to be in a "new" place and spend some time in that area.

We too had a winter much more freezing than usual, here in NY. I'm a bit concerned with how humid I know it will be in May, but I think I'm actually welcoming the heat and humidity for once! I can't stand how cold it's been and for how long.

I hope you enjoy your trip immensely!
