Sounds cool! What is the book about?

Congratulations!

Yes they do. I might have some availability if you are interested.

Hmm, beer ornaments? Good idea!

I need 1 night in a studio, March 17, may be difficult since it is the high season. PM me or call if you do have some available.

Sorry guys I've been quiet lately. Have been hardcore slacking on my DIS addiction. I don't think I've even logged into the DIS yet this month.... (and today I'm only checking this one thread since I felt bad not being around)

I could use a little Florida sunshine right about now, I am not looking forward to winter in New England.

I might have to request a little something from the bartender to add to my coffee to warm up today

So what is the current topic of discussion?

everyone to the SSC. Sorry about it being so quiet around here lately. Traditionally we do tend to get a bit quiet during the holidays though as most people tend to be pretty busy with other things.

In the meantime, please feel free to make yourself comfortable, and our bartender I see has been around pouring drinks upon request!

Maybe on the door the Schnoz-berries actually taste like Schnoz-berries?

October seems better though. Can anyone recommend a good Disney resort for a solo gal? I'm thinking POFQ. I stayed at POR for one night this year and it was fabulous. I've always forced family to go with me lol. But not next year. Next year, I'm doing what I want. Also anyone done MNSSHP solo?

And...I'm a shot of tequila type
to the SSC!

In case you weren't aware, we've actually had our SSC DISMeets in October for the past couple years. Depending on when things fall in for next year, you might find yourself able to hang out with some of us down there around the same time.

Hey Tara, I don't have DVC, but I do believe I've got some points over at Bonnet Creek I've gotta burn which I might be able to hook you up with. If you are interested in having me check it out as a possible backup for you, feel free to text me.

Hi all! I'm Jennifer from St Cloud, FL! I'm super excited because I have an interview tomorrow with Disney Casting for a guest services job! If I get this I can finally afford to visit WDW. I've lived here for 4 months already and haven't been able to go.

Hi everyone! I just found this thread and after reading all 16 pages I thought I would join

Quick intro - I am a lover of all things Disney! I'm a single mom to two sons - ages 24 and 19. My youngest is in the Disney College Program and we are driving down next weekend to pick him up.

We will be at WDW from December 23rd - January 3rd. I also plan to visit several non Disney parks while we're there. Then we are spending two days at Disney's Hilton Head resort before we head back home.

I already know nurse.darcy (Hi Darcy ). We met during my solo trip to WDW in May 2009. Looking forward to getting know everyone else!

Question #1:

We all know we are crazy about Disney and sometimes do solo trips, but do you plan solo vacations anywhere else besides Disney? If so, where?
In addition to WDW, I've gone to Mexico, New York, China (but stayed 1/2 the time with a friend that lives there). I've done a few 'road trips' myself too, but not really Vacations as I'm usualy driving to/from home to visit Family/Friends. But I love driving bymyself, don't have to worry about anyone going deaf from my singing.

All I can say is that I am scared crapless but determined to do this.
A two year world trip sound like so much fun, super jealous! Good for you for being determined, it will be worth it, I'm sure!

Sorry I have been MIA lately on here...it has been a busy time of year around the house as my mom's family was over for Thanksgiving and we are having them over for our Christmas on Sunday. Plus going to hockey games and dealing with a Christmas Dinner Meeting...I am ready for the holiday's to be over!!!

I am working on my day trip in Feb on what my DBFF and I are going to hit when we are there (only going to Epcot and MK).

Since we just booked our Christmas 2013 trip as a family, I have to start thinking of what we want to do that week (taking the camper down for the week).

Did anyone see the Sandy Relief Concert last night? There were some pretty good acts. Being from NJ, it was kind of surreal watching such an event to benefit areas that I have spend so much time at.
