I also suggest to have Lunch with an Imagineer. It is at the Brown Derby. You can not use your dining plan for this one but it is something I highly recommend.

Have fun!
I'd like more info on this please??

Pin Event at EPCOT

It's called 'Where Dreams HapPin' and it's Sept 7-9 in World Showcase at EPCOT. There's info in several places if you google Disney Pin Trading. I'm really excited and can't wait! It's been about 3 years since my last visit!
Would love to meet with any other solos that weekend.
I am so glad I found this board!

Hello...I will be making my first solo trip Sept 23 thru Sept 27. My wife is tired of Disney, but not me. I'm a little worried about going by myself because I like having someone to talk to....but I can't wait until summer of next year to go again!!

My first solo trip isn't for a while yet, but I'm booked! March 30 to April 5, 2008, at the Poly. Would love to meet some fellow DISsers! Unfortuntely, while the Home Depot here does carry the Disney paint, they are not in the shape of Mickey heads! Should I just get some lime green ribbon to decorate my Canada backpack with?

Just curious, but how do people enjoy solo trips? I could, MAYBE, see going to a park for one day. But muliple days?

It's weird, because if you told me you back packed through Europe by yourself, I'd be like, "WOW, that's so impressive."

But something about going to WDW by yourself...roaming those big massive parks alone...going on rides and watching parades and eating alone...something about that just seems...not fun whatsoever and utterly, utterly lonely. And this is coming from an only child who is used to and quite comfortable with being alone.

Question Solo from 11/26-12/8

I am going to be at WDW from 11/26-12/1 and the on the DCL Western from 12/1-12/8. Are there any male travelers going at this time? I have two single friends going with me also female and we range in age from 41, 36, & 26. I am just hoping to meet a special someone. Maybe that is stupid. But it is the place wishes come true.

I also was wondering if anyone had been to the singles mingles on the DCL's? What are they like?

Thanks.

Solo buddy wanted

I wish to visit the parks in the next couple of weeks. I would really enjoy having a buddy to do the parks with me so I would have someone to enjoy the experience with. I have done them solo but it is more fun when you can laugh, scream and use all your senses together. I live in NJ and my days to go are open. I have a great sense of humor, know a lot about the parks and how to get the most out of each day and love to talk about the technology of the attractions and the backstorys. If you don't that is ok too just as long as you are ready to have fun Disney style. If you are in the area or visiting soon please post a reply and if we feel comfortable we can talk on the phone then do the parks. I am an adult male by the way. I use the term adult lightly when I happen to be strolling down Main Street USA.

Hey PacMan3000! Just answering your question I'm a single female who is going to Disney World for my 5th straight year, this time I'm staying for 12 days and I'm going totally solo! (And yes, I've backpacked Europe by myself ) In response, I think it just takes a particular kind of person. If you're not thinking about how alone you are and focusing on the fact that you are alone and just get into the fun of WDW, then it's not lonely at all. I'm surrounded by people - friendly ones too. I always go around getting pictures, autographs (I even push all the buttons in Minnie's house), I eat by myself, get on the single rider line every time and I never focus on the fact that I'm by myself. I'm having so much fun that it never enters my mind. I soak up the atmosphere, people watch - and watching somebody else's kid see Mickey for the first time still brings tears to my eyes. It's not utterly lonely unless that's what you see - for me, I don't see that at all - only the good stuff. I've done Disney World with people before, and being as antisocial as I am was ready to scream and go running off on my own anyway, so I stopped inviting people and started going alone. Don't get me wrong, I totally see why it can be fun going with friends and family, but just not for this Disney Freak! (And maybe it's because I'm not an only child... )
