Going to WDW for my FIRST ever solo trip! 09/03-09/10 and staying at Pop Century. My sister and I had been planning to go but after much deliberation, and weighing options just figured it would be best.. None the less I am excited to be going!

Heading back to WDW 11/16-23 for another solo journey. Too excited for words.

Just returned from a sisters only trip earlier this May and while that was a tremendous amount of fun and a wonderful experience I am glad that I am lucky enough to get to go again later this year.

Have a question....

Trying to plan ahead and maybe plan my first ever solo event, but it would take a LOT of advanced planning and begging for days off at work depending on what is going on.

Soooo....

1) Is the 24 hr event always the same corresponding date of the year (this year it was the 23 of May, next year it will be 22?). Is there any way to know this far in advance when it will be?

2) Can you do a SWW event the same weekend/trip as the 24 hr?

3) What's the usual cost for a solo? I figured some of yall might have a generic idea. I would probably stay at a value resort as I wouldnt be spending much time in it.

The cost depends on numerous circumstances and choices that you will make: how far away do you live, will you fly or drive, accommodations, dining, souvenirs, type of park tickets, etc. No one else can tell you what it will cost, as there are too many variables. To minimize the cost, you could stay off property, and avoid steak meals on property now that they are upwards of $30. Check out mousesavers.com for other ways to keep cost down.

I am thinking about going to WDW either the end of July or the start of August on my own.I have done it before and it was miserable as I wish I had some company at some point. So if anyone wants to meet up then let me know. I have been before many times with my children and my fiancé but he cant make it so I am going alone.

OMG! My husband and I are HUGE into halloween! We would love to open our own haunted house some day. We even have two of our three kids born in October. We tell everyone we are breeding Haunters. There is a huge Halloween convention/trade show in St Louis in March that we go to yearly sponsered by Transworld. I have a confrence for work in Tampa in October and will be doing a short side trip at WDW October 9th through the 12th. I really want to go to experience MNSSHP. This will be my first solo trip ever. I have tried to talk friends into going with me but none could go wih such short notice due to finances. I am a bit nervous going solo since I am a social creature by nature and would love to meet up with a group who are in the same boat. I hope you had a great trip!

Labor Day Weekend 2014

I'm planning on going to WDW over Labor Day weekend and am just going to wing it on everything (other than where I'm staying), so if anyone else is interested in joining me on this adventure, the more the merrier!

Cool first solo trip

So I am planning my first trip to WDW since childhood, and it has turned out to be a mostly solo trip.

I am kind of nervous, but have been reading and think I have a strategy to where being a singleton wont be the worst thing ever! However, I am a very social person, so if there are any other solo travelers planning to also be at WDW 10/10-18 2014, I would love to hang out and do some rides or dinner/drinks one of those days!

Also, any tips or suggestions for solo travelers would be awesome. It is actually my first solo vacation ever as well! EEP! Go big or go home, i guess!

Solo trips in my opinion are a lot of fun as long as you make it fun. You get to do whatever, whenever you want. A lot of times the ride wait times are shorter (single lines) or needing solo riders. Eating out, a lot of places have seating that you don't wait for that a lot don't know about. Example, rainforest cafe. They could have a 45 minute + wait, but you can walk in and sit at the bar with no wait, very easy if you're by yourself. A lot of places do this, they just don't advertise it to the world. Just go, have fun. I have met so many people over my solo trips
