What is defined as "single" parent? I consider myself one even though I am just divorced, I don't have my daughter all the time but when I'm with her I feel like a single parent. It definitely makes it easier to meet up with others in the same circumstances.

Those of you who are truly single parents, wow, I really admire what it takes to do that, especially when the kids are younger, but there is no more important aspect of our life (to me at least) than our children...

<Script language='Javascript'>var rndNum = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10000);eval("var CDTDate" + rndNum + " = 'July 11, 2005 7:30:00 AM EST';");document.writeln("<form name='CDTform" + rndNum + "' action='Javascript:void(0);'>");document.writeln(' <font size=2 color=darkblue>Long Way to Go!</font><br>');document.writeln("<input type=text value='' size=40 name='WrittenByJamesMVenglarikII'>");document.writ eln("</form>");if (theFunction) theFunction += "var d = new Date();";else var theFunction = "var d = new Date();";theFunction += "var c = new Date('" + eval("CDTDate" + rndNum) + "');";theFunction += "var diff = (c - d)/1000;";theFunction += "var days = Math.floor(diff / 86400);";theFunction += "var rem = diff - (days * 86400);";theFunction += "var hours = Math.floor(rem / 3600);";theFunction += "rem = rem - (hours * 3600);";theFunction += "var minutes = Math.floor(rem / 60);";theFunction += "rem = rem - (minutes * 60);";theFunction += "var seconds = Math.floor(rem);";theFunction += "if ((days < 0) | (hours < 0) | (minutes < 0) | (seconds < 0)) ";theFunction += "var out = 'At last!';";theFunction += "else ";theFunction += "var out = ' ' + days + ' days ' + hours + ' hrs. ' + minutes + ' mins. ' + seconds + ' secs.';";theFunction += "document.forms.CDTform" + rndNum + ".elements.WrittenByJamesMVenglarikII.value = out;";setInterval(theFunction, 1000);</Script>

I am a single parent with 2 teens ages 18 and almost 17. We're going on the Disney Wonder 8/19/04 and then staying at a timeshare until 8/26/04. Anyone else going then? Would love to meet up with other single parents.

I am not a single parent exactly but my husband travels a great deal for work so we usually only see him on the weekends (late Friday night til late Sunday nights). My daughter (who turns 8 in Dec) and I will be in WDW Dec 12th thru the 18th at the Polynesian--doing the MVMCP on the 14th!!

Sounds good to me. My daughter and I usually go twice a year. Usually in May and December but next year we don't want to go in May--it's just too hot--we are thinking maybe Oct and Dec for next year!!!

Cool

Hi everyone ,
I'm a single Mom to a 9 year old daughter . I just found this forum and this thread. What a great idea! I always wondered about taking a cruise and whether I would be the only single there. I'm happy to see that other single parents taking cruises.
By the way, DD and I will be at WDW 10/2 through 10/10, in case anyone else is going. We are getting APs for the first time, so I'm hoping we'll also go back another time or two in the next year, maybe over MLK weekend or maybe the first week in June, after school lets out.

We are going to be doing Cirque for NYE!

I let DD pick since I am doing the Richard Petty Driving Experience earlier in the week.

What are you doing after Fantasmic?

Val,

How late do you plan on staying up? We are at the 9:00 p.m. of Cirque.

Are you doing CP on the 30th by chance. We will be at Epcot that night for the 8:15 reading.

Hi,
We are going to the Luau on the 30th. We have the early seating. After that I was thinking about doing some shopping in DTD. We are going to Epcot on the 31st (AM) and then heading to MGM later. I have no plans after FAntasmic other then to see the osborne lights. What time does your show end?
On the 1st we have a ps for 19oo park faire (breakfast ) and then maybe playing some mini golf. We are leaving that night.

Talking This may take some planning.......

Hi Val,

The Cirque show, I believe is 1 1/2 hours but could be a little longer. This should take us to at least 11 - 11:30 p.m. Were planning on just hanging around DTD. Maybe ice cream if the shop is still open?

The 30th we are doing San Angel for 5:00 and then the 8:00 CP.

The 1st we are at CRT for Breaky maybe we can meet up at MK?
