I will be there at that time too, weather permitting. This will be my first solo trip and a big birthday trip all in one. I am way to excited and scared for my own good.

Don't be scared... You'll be so happy that you made the "solo" decision. It will be scary until you actually get there!

Enjoy!

Hey TinkTink! I am thinking about booking a Labor Day solo trip too! Just got a coupon from expedia for $200 off a package. So.... if I do a value, air and hotel will only cost me about $250 Thinking about maybe doing MNSSHP on Friday night too!

Now, I just need to justify going to Disney instead of visiting my family in Indiana

I'm in!!

Just booked ASSp for Sept. 4-7. Flight gets in at 6:15pm on friday, so thinking that I'll head over to MK if tix are still available for MNSSHP once I arrive. Don't want to buy ahead of time in case the flight gets delayed or something -- I'd rather spend the extra few $$ for buying the day of than be out big bucks if my flight doesn't get in on time. Plus I have a ticket from one of last year's rainy MVMCP's (that is good for one-day MK visit) that I am hoping they will let me exchange for MNSSHP instead -- customer service said she "thought" they would, but said it can only be done at guest services. Here's hoping for a little pixie dust

Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.

Not really going solo as my 11 yr daughter will be with me, but it might be fun to have another adult to hangout with.

We're staying at POP from Sept. 3rd-8th.

I'd be up for hanging out! Just let me know if you (or any other solos!) want to meet up. I really have no plans for this trip other than trying to make MNSSHP. My last solo trip I was a "ride warrior" as it was about a month before Space Mountain closed for refurb -- lost count of how many times I rode it And the time before that was spent just basically soaking in the magic So, I'm up for whatever - just happy to be in Disney

Hi Tink,
I'll be at POP from Sep 4 - Sep 13 Solo
I'd be up for a meet depending on day and time (I don't want to miss any of my ADR's)

Brad in Ma.

Brand new to site - Disney Labor Day Wknd Maybe?

Hi! I am brand new to this wonderful site...friends aren't as into the magic as I am or have kids, commitments, no time, which is understandable. But me, I'm making the time and plan (hopefully) to go to Disney this Labor Day - could use some time off and happy faces, Disney Magic and ready to book but hate going solo (the lesser evil than sitting home NOT at Disney this Labor Day weekend). Again, so new to this so bear with me...do solo's really meet up for dinner here and there and maybe a walk around the World Showcase, whatever, etc.? Because that's just what I'm looking for. I'm a female, 40, super nice - lots of great friends but none that want to/can go to Disney World on Labor Day (curses!) and here I'm hell bent - so please tell me there are some nice folks out there that are going and meeting up and how it works. I'm such a fan!
