    Default Solo in September - Pre-Trip

    Hi! I'm a bit late with this as I'm already on day #3 of my trip. Oops!

    So here's the deal: I had planned a solo trip for September 2017, staying at the Boardwalk. Everything was planned and finalized and the trip was a celebration of me getting a new job after 5 years at one I hated. And then, bam! Hurricane Irene hit. I was supposed to fly to MCO the Saturday it was going to land in Orlando, and the parks were announced to close for two days. I had to cancel my entire trip (luckily received a full refund for everything).

    I wanted to re-book for October, but all the Disney resorts were full. I was really bummed.

    But then my mom suggested that me and my dad go together and stay off-site. My parents are Marriott time-share owners and my mom still works full time but my dad is retired and they said they would give me a 2-bedroom unit, on them. She said she wouldn't mind us going without her and would cat-sit for me so we went ahead and booked.

    It was a great trip, albeit not the full Disney experience. Plus I had lost all my 60-day FP+ so had to get what we could get. But I saved all the money I spent on the original trip and saved it for this year. My parents are ridiculously generous so I only had to pay for my flight and park tickets. My dad rented the car and paid for all our meals together.

    Which brings me to this current trip. I still wanted a solo adventure. And now I wanted to go full-out. I had two years' vacation budget to play with, and after the loss of my beloved cat, decided to treat myself to a theme park view at Contemporary.

    I booked this trip last November. 10 months of anticipation. But it all worked out with the planning and now the trip is here!

    Stay tuned...

    So sorry to hear about your loss.

    A theme park view at the Contemporary sounds like a perfect place to enjoy your Disney vacation!!
