Hello Everyone!!

I am in London until next Saturday and I am wanting to go to Paris for a day or two to visit Disneyland Paris. I was just wondering if anyone would want to meet up or join anytime next week. I would love the company!!

Thanks!

First time at Disney since I was young...going SOLO..omgosh. March/April

I am so new to the board, and also to the Disney experience. I have only been once...when I was very young. But I have wanted to go for SO long. But I haven't been able to ever convince any adult friends that it would be fun...if you an believe THAT. (Shaking my head on that one.)

I am really considering, at this point, going solo. The point is that I'm GOING! Of course, I'm very nervous, as I feel I don't have much of an education about what to do/eat/where to stay/etc. But...maybe, for the first time, over-researching isn't necessary?

While I haven't booked an exact date yet, I'm thinking of going in March or April. If anyone else is going around then, maybe we can meet up for a dinner or something?

(And yes, I'm totally accepting any recommendations on anything.)

Congratulations on going! I've done many family trips and have done solo trips in March for the past several years and I always enjoy myself. Its definitely nice to get away from the real world for a few days. You probably should do some planning, but don't go nuts. Just be aware that you're not going to see and do everything in one trip.

One decision you'll have is whether to stay onsite or not. If you do, Disney will provide transportation to and from the airport and within Disney property. You likely will not need a car. If you stay offsite, I would get a car. Some hotels have shuttles to Disney, but then you are shoehorned into a schedule and if you miss your shuttle, you'll have to get involved with taxis, etc. There will be those that will say you "have" to stay on-site to get the full experience. Onsite is fun, and I probably would recommend it since its your first time. Personally, when I go next month, I'll be offsite, mostly because I like having a car, know my way around and since the family won't be with me, I like to "do it cheap".

Don't want to drone on too long with this, but however you decide to go: Just do it!

Thanks for your response - boy did I need to hear that simple line about how I can't do/see it all in one trip. I mean, I know that rationally but it's a good reminder. I'm staying at AMA so that I can keep things as simple as possible.
