Hi All,

Planning My First solo trip to Florida for Nov. 29 til Dec. 8th planning on staying at the Frech Quater after the 3rd.

Looking forward to meeting some other DISers on my trip. If there are any NE people down there would love to meet some for the PATS game.

Looking for Monorail Drink-a-Thon Buddies!!!

I'm headed down for my first solo trip Jan 28 - Feb 3 (CR & BWV) and would love to meet up with other DISers or DVCers for a monorail Drink-a-Thon or whatever!

To: Disneygrl1960.... Thanks for the encouragement. I am brand new to the site and have NEVER thought to visit WDW alone! Not sure if I'm 100% confortable, but you give a lot of food for thought.

Great times to be had!

You're welcome. I was so leary of doing the "alone" trip. The very first trip I was a little uncertain. I learned so much about myself. It's good to spend time with yourself. So many people neglect to do that &/or lack the time to be able to. Another reason a solo trip is invaluable; I think it's something special you can do for yourself. Afterall, you deserve it.

Since then I've been on trips to several cities. My most recent favorites were Washington DC (twice) and New Orleans prior to the tragic hurricane. I have just had a really great time. It is great being able to set my own agenda & really rewarding to achieve visiting so many sites. I have met wonderful people. Particularly in Washington DC at the holocaust museum, men who served in WW II & at the World War II museum in New Orleans. I doubt that I would have sat down (as I did for hours) and talked to these men had I been traveling with a companion. I'm not knocking travel companions, dont get me wrong. I love traveling with my friends. However traveling alone just brings new & different opportunities.

So good luck in your endeavors & I hope you'll write me soon & tell me that you had an outstanding trip, SOLO.

Yours, Karen aka disneygurl

I am travelling (mostly) solo...with my stepmom. I will most certainly want to meet up with fellow DISers, though. Being alone with my stepmom (very nice, but odd) will grate on my nerves sometimes. We are going our separate ways quite a bit, actually. I will be at AKL 12/21-12/24 (flying home early in the a.m.). If anyone is going to be there around then, and likes hanging out around the WS especially, PM me! I am an EPCOT WS junkie!

Wow, I can not tell you how happy I am to see that I am not alone. I love WDW and was there Jan 05 with my husband, our first time there without any kids. We had a great time but he died unexpectantly in May. I was thinking of going to WDW alone but honestly I don't think I ever noticed any visitor there alone, i.e. in the restaurants.

So there are others like me?? Nice. For my first trip alone, I will come back here to this forum.
Thank you!!

I am so sorry to hear about your hubby. But oh yes, my dear friend, go to WDW. I go solo and LOVE it! My next solo trip is scheduled for May (or earlier now that I have just bought an AP before the prices went up).

Go, have fun! And hey, you will see on the Dis Board that many people go when you go so you can hook up with them for dinner sometime!
