Just booked a weekend for me Sept 14-17th.
My cousin is playing in BB torunament at WWS, but any excuse to come down is good enough for me!

I'm new and I was actually confused about the same thing... but I found it elsewhere on the board when I was browsing through the other day! Apparently people from the board used to wear lime green ribbons if they were interested in being identified at the parks and talking to other dis folks. But now Home Depot has disney paint (of which the samples come on Mickey head-shaped papers rather than the regular squares), so they have been using those now instead/as well.

The other abbreviations I am pretty clueless!

Home Depot

Thanks,
It is tought, but fun to play catch-up with the website.
I have been remodeling, and have borrowed several of the Mickey chips form HD for scrapbooking, but will have to go and collect the green ones.

I'm back!

Hi all, it's been so long that I forgot my password to my old username (H2OBabie) *blush* I haven't been on the boards since I got back from the World in April because I was soooo scared I'd book another trip right away. So much for that idea! Anyhoo, I'm really excited to be planning my next (and first) solo trip for March 30-April 6, I just had to share!

Ciao for now!

Talking Lime green mickey head for Solo traveller from Holland

Hi!!
I am planning my first solotrip to WDW in November this year. Would really like to find some other travellers to spend some time with. Mainly Dinner time I expect.
The idea about the lime green mickey heads sound great!! But since I live in The Netherlands & we do not have any Office Depots....could somebody help me out & send me one. I will of course reimburs you for the costs!!

Who else will be in WDW 5-15 November?

Ciao,
Monique

I would enjoy it more if I had a friend to go with. I would love it even if I got to hang out with someone just once for the afternoon. Especially another person who is momentarily baned off of the thrill rides. I get so sad walking near TOT and hearing the screams.
Leanan-
I'd be happy to meet up with you one afternoon. I'm going to be at WDW from Oct. 16-25 for the Food & Wine Fest, and while I'll be spending the weekend at the parks with my sister and meeting her fiance for the first time, I'm solo the rest of the time.

I suffer from Meniere's, which is an inner ear disorder that can cause severe vertigo attacks (I push it and go on thrill rides anyway ) but I spend the majority of my time visiting less adventurous attractions - Great Movie Ride, Narnia, Hall of Presidents, World Showcase, Carousel of Progress and my favorite of all time - Spaceship Earth (under renovations, I know but gives me a reason to return in 2008!), dining and browsing in the shops.

It would be fun to spend an afternoon with someone else! I've been going solo for a few years now and never realized until stumbling upon these boards that not only do others go solo as well, but actually have a system for finding each other - lime green ribbons. I'll be looking for the people wearing those in October!

After my August trip (this month the 28th 07) I will be moving to FL by the end of October and living right off exit 55 off I-4 and the 1st thing I'm going to do is buy my AP and probably be going to Disney every day. So if anyone out there wants someone to pal around with let me know and we can become Disney buddies. But let me make one thing perfectly clear. I am a VERY straight male so no funny stuff if any male Disney guys want to pal around ,,lol
