Just in case you may find it of interest: There is a new Solo Disney Cruisers group on Facebook.

I will be going it alone for 2 weeks in November! very excited. Being from the UK I don't get to go as much as I would like. I intend on touring the resorts, brushing up on my photography and taking the Backstage Magic tour!

Thought I'd pop in here to say hi! I've done Disneyland Anaheim and Paris on my own before, so this is going to be my first solo trip to WDW (been there a few times already though, just not solo)! Can't wait! Going to be there Oct 25th to Nov 9th. If anyone wants to hook up during that time, just shout

Solo traveler going Sept 26-Oct 1st 2013 for Food & Wine festival since travel partner cancelled at last minute. If anyone will be there it'll be nice to meet and experience WDW with others. . Have dining reservations already at Coral Reef, Victoria and Alberts, and Via Napoli.

Does anyone have the DIS app for mobile phone and do you check it from time to time during your trip?

I ask because I like to check it from time to time and I frequently find posts from solos here while I'm here (like right now), but I assume it's not worth it to post because no one will see the post in so short notice. I live in Tampa, usually decide to come to WDW within a day or so of the trip.

Anyway, I'm staying at the Dolphin and I'll be at EPCOT tomorrow. If any solos want to meet for brunch or late lunch, let me know.

Yes, I use the android app and have used it on my last trip to arrange hookups with others while on property during my St. Pats trip earlier this year.

I'll be going down to see the Mouse (and participate in the Princess Half Marathon) from Feb 21-24, 2014. Will anyone else be there during this time, and would like to meet up at some point? First solo trip I'll be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and hoping to do the Keys to the Kingdom Tour while I'm there too. I'm starting to get so excited!
