Talking

Hey everyone. I'm from NY and bought my first annual pass (just got back from a week long vacation in May). Normally I travel with my best friend K8 and we're planning to go back together in October, but I was hoping to maybe get down to Disney one weekend in late July or early August and was wondering if anyone would be around then. I'm reluctant to do Disney on my own but would be reassured if there were others to meet up with.

I'm hoping to get to WDW the first week of January, 2013. I may be going with someone, but there's a good chance I will be going solo. Any others going to be down there at that time? I'm kind of nervous about the prospect of going by myself, even though I love WDW and have been down there plenty of times!

I'm taking my first ever trip to Disney - solo! - the first week of September. Tired of waiting for someone to go with...

I'm flying from San Francisco on Labor Day Monday, the 3rd. I leave at 7pm on Friday the 7th, so I'll still have a mostly full day in the parks. I got a good deal at the Boardwalk Inn (though I was really drawn to Wilderness Lodge), so I upgraded to Club Level. (Got a standard view, because the first thing I do in a hotel room is draw the curtains and make it as dark as possible!)

Already made a few ADRs, though I may change as we get closer: Le Cellier, Via Napoli, Hollywood Brown Derby and Chefs de France. I planned afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian for my last day.

Any other advice??

I would also very much recommend watching the Magic Kingdom Fireworks from atop the Contemporary Hotel. Get to the California Grill Bar about an hour before the fireworks. Have a drink, maybe an appetizer and then stroll out onto the viewing platform. You get the music and a pretty good view!

Don't be nervous. After the first time it is easy. Nothing to fear but fear itself!-FDR

Any Disney World vacationers out there?

Hello ! My name is Dominique, I live in NYC and I have been a Disney lover since...I came out of the womb! As a child I frequented WDW countless times. I love Hidden Mickeys, Disney movie trivia, Disney merchandise, soundtracks..you name it! I am DYING to go to the Food and Wine festival this year, since I will be turning 25 shortly before it starts. Unfortunately, I have no friends interested in going to Disney World, as they all think its for children (what Disney lover hasn't experience such nonsense?!) I am hoping to come across some people who may be able to steer me in the right way to find such a group of people interested in going to Disney, if such group exists! I was wondering if you ever came across a group (whether on meetup.com or not) of women (single, married, kids, whatever) who have a group..maybe they take an annual trip to Disney or something?

Any information you could give me would be great!

Thank you so much!

Hi Dominique,

I think you'll find no shortage of people on here willing to go. I'm in a couple Meetup groups myself that frequent Disney. One is a Disney specific group (although I have yet to do anything with them). Another is a single parent group and I occasionally schedule days/weekends at Disney so I have other adults for me to talk to and other kids for my daughter. One event I've missed the last 2 years is the Food & Wine Festival. I've either had friends cancel on me at the last minute or I haven't found anyone interested in going. And the Food & Wine Festival just isn't the same with a young child in tow - LOL.

I'm sure you can find something through Meetup.com or even post on here when you're interested in going and people will respond. I'm running the Food & Wine half marathon this year so I think I'm going to finally break my two year drought - LOL.

I've had no luck on meetup.com, as of yet..but my fingers are still crossed! Thank you for the info though! I really appreciate anything I can get. Will you be able to enjoy all the food and wine with a half marathon to prepare for?
