alien head suggestion

I laminated a couple, punched holes in them (reinforce the holes!) and turned them tags to hang on my luggage and fanny pack. I have actually had two people recognize them and stop me.

Oh ok my sister said she would put a hole in it and run a string through it and make it into a necklace. I didn't know if you should write your name or maybe disboards on it or what thanks! I like the laminated part of it!!

Contemplating a solo trip

I've been a Diser for a year now but have never opened this thread before. I'm so desperately anxious to plan another trip but have nobody who will go with me. All the sister's have kids and even though I have 2, my hubby said he would take time off work so I could go. I tried all my friends but they don't have any Disney in them. (Yeah, right ! How could they be my friends then ! )Anyway... Expedia.ca is having a good deal on flights in October. I asked my mother but she's headed down to Florida with one sister to her timeshare in April. I just don't have any luck ! I never thought about going solo before until I looked here. I would want to be sharing all the sights and rides and fabulous food with someone who appreciates Disney like I do. Has anyone ever met up with strangers and shared a holiday with them successfuly ? I would think it was very risky. What if you didn't click ? Elisa

Elisa,
I have never met up with anyone but most people are nice in disney! Last year I met a woman at the pool she was with her kids and husband, she told me how her husband had cancer and was doing treatments but they were making him sick so he decided to stop them and she didn't know if this was gonna be their last vacation together, but he felt good . So that is how he wanted his family to remember him! Thats what I would want! I wonder how they are doing? But what I'm trying to say is there are always people to talk to at disney most people are friendly and will talk to you and you can smile at the child who is having a fit cause he wants to go on buzz lightyear again and think thank goodness I don't have to deal with that! LOL! Ya know? I love going alone but would welcome company but there are plenty of people around to talk to.

Have you considered the Disney cruise Elisa? We have a bunch of family and friends (most of us are single) going on the February 10, 2007 and would love to have one more. There's always so many activities and people that if you didn't click with any one person you could always meet up with others.

Thank you so much for the invitation and for the thought. That was very generous of you. I don't think I'd do the cruise ,as it's the parks I enjoy but I hope to do a cruise someday maybe for an anniversary.I hope you and the family have the best time , and that the weather is great too. Elisa

Smile Solo In October

ELISA - I went solo for the first time last Oct. and it honestly was the best vacation I think I've ever had. I have two teen boys who have as much interest as my husband in DW. I like to be alone though, so I can't speak for you as to how you'd enjoy it. I'm going solo again in October this year ~ to let you know how much I loved it. If you want to talk more about it - let me know. I'll be there solo 9/30 - 10/9/06.

May Singles meets,
Hey, Budcollector, there are a bunch of dis singles who will be down there about that time, and several evening meets scheduled. Check elsewhere on this board for the specifics.
