Going to Walt Disney World Solo

When I travel to Walt Disney World I always travel alone. I travel a lot of the time alone because I don't have any family or friends that wand to go. I don't care if someone came with me most people are afraid of me. Mainly because I have a mental illness and they don't understand about my illness.
So I go solo.

I always start planning months ahead of time. Most of the time I book though a travel agent this upcoming trip I'm going though Southwest Vacation.

On other trips I have had the Dining Plan but this trip I'm not going to get it.

When I go I like to stay at Pop Century. I have stayed there  many times before and like the size and the way that the CM treat you. It is a Value resort but a bit higher than the All Star Resorts since they are in a different area where room tax is lower.

At Pop I always stay in building 9. It is close to the bus. Also it's close to the Main building. Across the lake is the Art of Animation.

When I have tickets I buy 2 less then of my stay since I don't go to the park on the first and last day. this can save you some money. The upcoming trip I'm going to buy a Annual Pass. Since Disneyland has gotten too expensive I won't be getting the Premier Passport  like I did the last time.

I figure the next year I will take two trips there. Getting the AP will be cheaper than buying tickets so I'm saving some money there. My last trip I had the Quick Service Dining Plan, but this time I'm going to pay out of pocket for my meals. Well if I get the Dining Plan I have to buy two tickets. So I will have a Gift Card that will have $300 to eat with.

When I go to the parks I like it that I go alone. I don't have to worry about someone else and I can go at my only pace.

I also get on ride faster because I'm a single rider. The downside is when I want to have my picture taken this is is where Photo Pass comes into play.

It can get lonely not having someone to talk to or eat with but this is how it is. I on times try chatting with someone in line but it does last long since most of the people that travel to Disney  down speak English or just don't like to talk with strangers.

I'm always looking for someone to meet up with so if you are interested in the times that I will be there email me at for my plans.

Rock Your Disney Side 24---My Journey Part One

At Disneyland and WDW had a Day long event on May 23-24, where the park would be open for 24 hours. This is my journey to the park. I went to Disneyland in Anaheim CA.

My trip started on Thursday when I boarded a train from Tuscon AZ to LA Ca. It was a nice ride but a little long. The trip lasted 10 hours in which most of it was sleeping. I got to to Union Station around 5 am. Disneyland would be opening in a hour but it w another two hours before I got there.

When I got to Disneyland I had to buy my park ticket. After that I went to find a locker to put my backpack but they were all gone so I had to carry my stuff with me all day.
Getting though the gate was a breeze since it was 8 am all the big crowds had gone though.

After getting into the park. Any other time I would be make my way to Indiana Jones or any other ride but I headed to see Anna and Elsa line. That line was long when I got there. I wait close to two hours before I saw them.Anything didn't matter I would be there for another 20 hours. While standing in line to did have a nice chat with a guy and we chatted about Disney movies and the secrets behind them. This guy was really into to Frozen so chatted about some of the secret thing that were in the movie. By then it was 10 am and it was my turn to to see Anna and Elsa. It was a nice chat with those two. I said to Anna that I like Elsa better because I too was a Snow Queen. Anna said "You have to magic too?"  I agreed but that wasn't the whole meaning.
After seeing them I head over to Indiana Jones. I went and got a Single Rider ticket so I could get on fast. it didn't take very long to get on the ride. I had to see all the now changes that they made. There wasn't too many changes that I could see. But I notice that they got rid of the three doors and cleaned up some a the looks to Maya.
The rest of the day didn't go to like I hoped. I was hoping to see my Ch actors, but the lines were too long. It was so crowed that you couldn't do anything but wait. I did trade some pins but not a lot  since a lot of the CM didn't want to wear them.

I did talk to other people about Disney raising the ticket prices. A lot of people aren't too happy about it but Disney reason for it was to cut down the crowds. A lot of people stated that they went going to come as much. I told them that I won't be making my two trips like I like to do in a year but I was going to go to WDW and buy a Annual Pass so I could make a couple trips there instead.

The rest of the day is a blur until around 6 pm. A You Tuber that I liked to watch their videos were at the Partner Statue. So I got to meet Sara and Dave from Fresh Baked Disney. They were cool people. I hang out with them for a bit until I was tired that I wanted to take a nap somewhere. Also when I was there I saw Adam The Woo. This guy is pretty famous for the type of videos  that he makes. He likes to go to those places that people don't want you to see. Most of his videos are  are Off limit places in WDW. He did this until Disney caught up to him and gave him a life time ban for the park, but it did go to Disneyland so he headed there. He was real cool mostly laid back. i chatted with he for a bit. I told him that I like his videos and how I couldn't believe that he got banned for life. He said that a was a matter of time. 

This is what I'm going to write for know. It's Sunday morning and I could hardly walk because my legs hurt bad.
