Sha- I'm sorry I misunderstood- I thought you had planned on going with someone, then when I read you were "now planning a solo-trip" I took it to mean there was trouble in paradise! Silly me...I'll pay closer attention next time

UPDATE: It seems my dad wants to go to Disney with me this year too!
I don't know if I can handle a week with him (it nearly killed me back in 1997,) but I'm going to enjoy it for all it's worth anyhow!

Sha.... I'm so disappointed that PL is closing especially AC, that's my favorite club. I did signed the petition, I pray they reopen AC in another location.

Rebecca.... that's great that you Dad wants to join you, but I know what you mean. My dad lives with me to, I've never let him join me on vacations before, because it's my time to get away. But this December since we are celebrating his 80th BDay we're taking him to Disney. On the + side he will be rooming with my son, not me.

I love going to Disney with my mom and dad. Although my dad and I are more the laid back take it all in kind. My mom does it commando style....ya know the kind that pulls the kids arms out of socket to get to Mickey and be first in line at Dumbo. I dread the day that they are unable to go with us. They say they will go even if I have to pull them around on gurneys. I wonder way I get my love for the place from........

I've made my ADRs for the December trip to celebrate dad's 80th BDay. I'm taking him to the Hoop Dee Doo Revue (9:30 seating) and I booked the character breakfast at AK...I can't wait until I see his reaction to both, I believe he will just LOVE it.

I never got to experience Disney with my mom before she passed, but I know she is with me every time I go. My dad refuses to fly, or ride in a car for that long, so it doesn't look good to be able able to show him my love for the magic of Disney either. That is ok though, I will just continue taking my Dd and nieces, and of course meeting my wonderful Disney loving friends at the World.

Jade, you not alone, my mom never experienced Disney before she passed. Also my husband never experienced Disney before he passed. We had plans go during the Summer of that year but unfortunately God was ready to bring him home.

Teresa, that's so sad. I was actually closer to my step-dad than I am my real-dad now. He passed a few years ago and would have loved to have experienced disney with him, but truthfully, it just wasn't his thing. After that experience, Timmy's experience, and your experience, I feel very lucky to get to spend this time with him While I may get annoyed and pissy along the week, I can always plan a shorter solo-trip for another time and of course, I always have our Oct 2009 trip to look forward to!:thumbsup

Yes Teresa, he's still planning on that trip too, but I won't have to be around him then

I think God really has some bad timing sometimes.

I thought that way at first, but then I realized that God's timing is not the same as ours. Somewhere my faith just grow stronger with the knowledge that I knew my mom and husband were with Jesus. along with Walt Disney, who probably built a Disneyland in heaven.

That would be sweet! I think I might have been 6 or 7 when my Sunday School teacher told us that heaven resembled our purest dreams... my purest dream is the Magic Kingdom so I'm hoping that when it's my time to go, I'll be running from one end of the park to the other

WOW -- I just the last few minutes catching up and OMG --- what touching thoughts !!!! My Dad passed away 24 years ago and I can still remember him in the old man's mask he bought at the Magic Shop on Main Street and how he made people laugh that night all through the Magic Kingdom !!!! I was lucky enough to have lots of trips to WDW with both my parents when I was younger and also trip to DL with my Mom and her sister's family in California. And as ticked off as I can get at my mom at times, I can't bear the thought of going to WDW without her when I take my kids. I love those candid shots I capture of my Mom and my kids while they are playing checkers in Frontierland, the group shots throughout all the parks (THANX PhotoPass !!), Mom being hugged by Pooh, etc etc etc !!
WDW is a place to be with loved ones, whether it be family, old friends or NEW friends !!!!! I guess this is why there is such a huge response for this trip ..... new friends make awesome memories !!!!!!!!!!!!

OH YEAH -- HAPPY CANADA DAY (July 1st) to all us Canucks and a Happy 4th of July to all of our American friends !!! I hope everyone gets a chance to have a blast with friends and family !!

Let's get this party (thread) started !!!!!! (again !)
