I'm so sorry to hear this

Go with your gut instinct- I'm sure it'll be challenging either way, but if you are up to it...keep on trucking on and try to enjoy! Plus, it sounds like you could sure use a nice respite.

Best wishes- hang in there!

I'm new here, but if you go I'll be there solo 12/6-11 and I will definitely buy you a drink! So sorry to hear what's happened, but I'm betting that a Disney trip will feel better than sitting at home and wondering if you should have gone. Hang in there!

OK...so I will indeed be going...and yes, I am open to drinks

I have 3 dining reservations...not sure how I feel about eating alone, but heck I have a ressie for Le Cellier on Dec 6 for a late lunch...anyone wanna join me? I also signed up for the Yuletide tour on Dec 7 and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on Dec 6.

Tomorrow, I will be landing around this time and I will head directly to DTD for some shopping and maybe dinner at the bar at Ragland Road. And then off to check in.

And Julie...I will indeed take you up on that drink...I need 6 or 7...LOL

It's been the hardest month of my life and I need some pixie dust and LOTS of Magic

Excellent!

I tried to PM you with my contact info, but apparently since I haven't posted 10 times, I am not allowed to contact you. (What the...? Weird rule.)

So I'm not sure how to get you my contact info since I'm not thrilled about the idea of posting it publicly. I guess we'll have to coordinate here?

I arrive at Caribbean Beach Resort late Thursday afternoon and I'm leaving the following Tuesday afternoon. I have a few ADRs and am meeting with a local friend at some point, but other than that I'm free to connect for drinks, for sure!

I'm an experienced solo traveler and I'm sure you made the right choice. You'll have fun! Hope to see you there -

Julie

I'm here. Yesterday was brutal. I got an upgrade on the plane because I was crying. I was nervous about everything but I made it here. And cried a lot. He is still at home so I can't really cry there. I made up for it .

I was weepy this morning but forced myself out the door and went to DTD before heading to Epcot. I didn't want to ride anything because everything reminds me of him. I'm back at the resort and going to the pool but I am debating skipping MVMCP.

I did sit next to a great couple at Le Cellist and they made me feel less lonely. I smiled at other guests and took pictures for Tami,is. I resisted the urge to throw things at happy couples. Lol

Sorry you are going through this. If I were at WDW solo I would totally do a spa day.....its the ultimate in just for you/hard to do when you have to work around someone else....but that's just me.

I hope you have pixie dust along the way. Don't forget the beauty of the single rider line!

Please know that you have tons of DISers with you in spirit and sending you good thoughts and pixie dust. You have a rough road ahead, but you are obviously a very strong and courageous person. You will be alright, even though it doesn't necessarily feel like it right now. As hard as starting this next chapter of your life will be, I can't imagine beginning it any better than at Disney. I wish you all the best!

Nothing to add to the great advise so far, just wanted to let you know that another person is out here rooting for you. I've been in your shoes - 16 years of marriage then a bombshell. You'll have bad days and you'll have good days, but eventually the good outnumber the bad. Keep your chin up and enjoy your trip!
