    If I lived near WDW, I would be in Epcot every weekend! I can’t get enough of World Showcase!

    I feel like going with my boyfriend will be like going alone in that we are so much alike with what we want to do and we also will let the other person have a rest, eat etc...whenever they need to. We are going in feb from Ireland so because it's a once in a lifetime trip for us we will be so happy to share it. That being said, if I lived near disney and had an annual pass nothing would stop me from going alone! Also if it's your wish or dream to go alone on a trip nothing should stop you, it's probably amazing! And literally a one of a kind experience

    Going solo is amazing, because you can go at your own pace and you don’t need to take anyone else into consideration.

    I wouldn't feel weird standing there by myself, I'd be lonely. D: I cry about this everywhere, lol, but Disney used to be a thing I always did with my mom. The last time I was able to visit was in 2006, and since then I've lost my mom. So on one hand, I'm DESPERATE to get back to Disney...but on the other, I keep imagining myself walking around alone and it just makes me cry! And I don't have any friends who'd be able to go, either, so I'd HAVE to go alone. I do everything solo, and I don't necessarily feel weird about it anymore, but I definitely feel lonely.

      That's a beautiful way of looking at it! I imagine that, if I'm ever able to go again, that it probably won't be as sad as I imagine it in my head. I know there'll still be moments of "I wish I could share this with someone!" but the memories should be good, not sad! Hugs to you ❤️❤️

      I am sorry about the loss of your mother and I understand how going to Disney alone can bring a flood of memories for people. I like to visit alone on or around November 11th, my grandfather's birthday. I go on a ride he and I used to go on -- he gave me a love of Disney parks. For every brief moment I have of sadness missing him -- I have tons of amazing, happy memories from times we visited together. I don't find it sad -- walking through Magic Kingdom is like strolling through a memory book. It can be really wonderful.

    Do you live far from Disney? Hour plus? Two? I ask because I wonder how tired you get when you spend the day in the park then drive home? I am moving by the end of this year and I wonder how far is too far to do a round trip in one day. I was thinking about Winterhaven or Lakeland.

      I live about 2 hours away. I generally get up at 4:30 am and leave the house by 6:30 am. I stop for breakfast on the way and am in the park just before 9 am. I am almost always out of the park and driving home by 3:30 pm. I get home just in time to have dinner on the table by 6 pm. I don't have any trouble sleeping at night after a park day but its not as grueling for me as it would be fore someone on vacation. I take lots of breaks during the day. I stay hydrated. When I am vlogging I usually don't do more than 3 rides in a day because I have dedicate a lot of time to vlogging. When I am not vlogging I can usually manage 6 - 11 rides and attractions from 9 am to 3 pm. When you are an annual passholder you can take your time, slow down a bit and only go on 3 Fast Pass rides. You will be amazed what you are able to see. I catch new details on every visit. Tonight Mark and I did a short Disney Date Night at Epcot. We sat to rest at the Refreshment Outpost just past China and I noticed that on the roof of the outpost that is closest to the China pavilion, there are 3 Chinese sock kites -- it makes a nice transition into the Outpost. We also observed 3 large white owls perched in the trees above the Outpost. I love being able to go for a few hours and soak in the details. If you are moving to Lakeland or Winterhaven you may only be 45 minutes away.

    Just got back from a solo “mommy get away” and it was so relaxing! I enjoyed eating warm food, hot coffee and sleeping in. 😄
    I talked with folks from all over and never felt lonely or out of place. And, at the Frozen Ever After dessert party I met two other ladies who were solo travelers and met another member of the FB page who was there with her family. So much fun!

      That sounds fantastic! I think my ideal solo trip would be a Disney Cruise!!

    Hi Pammie if you have a full day at the parks how many rides do you ride in a day

    • Pammie Plus Parks
      Pammie Plus Parks  8 months ago +2

      When I visit a park I am usually on there for 5 - 6 hours. If I am solo and vlogging I will do up to 4 rides and attractions and also film up to 6 videos in a six hour period. If am solo and I am not vlogging, I am able to do 11 - 14 rides and attractions in 6 hours. If I am with family/friends/husband I usually only do 5 - 6 rides and attractions in a 6 hour period.

    Oh...Discount tickets can sometimes be purchased thru Costco, and if you are a member of the Military, active or retired, you can get discounts. Also, I worked for a company that, as part of our benefits, had a website where you can get discounts on different Parks..from Six Flags, Great Wolf, Universal and yes. DISNEY. I purchased, thru them, tickets for my out of state sister. She saved almost 100.00 on her 5 day pass. They ARE out there! =)

      @Pammie Plus Parks I understand. This was thru a benefit from my job and the company was, I believe, called BenefitHub. It not only had WDW tickets, but also Universal, Busch, Six Flags and Great Wolf, as well as airline etc. I DID research it first, prior to purchase, and it was a reliable source. I guess that is the key right? Do your due diligence. 😉😘

      We did touch on employer discounts but I did not mention Costco ... that is an option. But if you haven't served in the military, have an employer with a discount, or you don't have a paid membership to AAA or Costco, you have to pay full price. I don't encourage people to buy discounted tickets unless they are positive it's from a large, reputable company and you've crossed checked with Disney that they accept tickets from that business. There are a lot of fraudsters out there.

    Pammie, I'll be at Universal solo next weekend for Mardi Gras. Thanks for a great live show . Also snagged my first Disney resort room at Coronado Springs for my birthday in the fall.

    I live in Pasco county, so I'm not far either...and in regards to going Solo ....I usually go with local family, but a couple of years ago, I messed up our reservations on a family reunion, week long trip, mistakenly booking a day earlier then the rest of my family's arrival by either car, or the Magical Express. I decided to just go with it. I arrived early, checked in, and left my bags with Concierge. I also, because of heart and spinal issues, have / need to use a scooter. Normally, a family member removes it from my trunk, however in this case, I had a bellman remove it for me. Once put together, I headed to the buses! Well, let me tell you! I had a blast!!! I was able to go where I wanted, see things I havent seen in over 20yrs going to the parks, because I had NO one else to say yea or nay!! I could take my time, or speed thru ( well, as "speedy" as safe. I am not one of "those" scooter riders! 😉) I could snack, or eat on MY schedule, and not have to check in with the "group" if I had to go Potty. I also Park hopped! I hit MK, HS and ended my evening in Epcot in England getting my favorite Fish & Chips. I WANTED to stay for the Fireworks ( another thing I've not seen) but I was so tired, I just went back to my resort, had my bags delivered and crashed!!!
    I enjoyed the rest of the week, but look forward to repeating a Solo trip soon!!!
    Love your vlogs/streams btw!! I've been a subscriber for quite some time, but I think this is my 1st ( and rather long) comment. 😉😊😋🤗

    I’m so disappointed because I just missed this stream while watching stream replays! 😂 now that I know the schedule I’ll definitely pop in as much as I can. I actually live rather close to you and visit Disney monthly so your tips and tricks still help me even though I’m not plus size.

      Thanks for watching, Jack! I try to make sure there is something that will appeal to everyone in my theme park video so they are helpful to people no matter their size or physical ability. I am so glad you find the tips helpful. This month, I am beginning my coverage of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Do you ever visit those parks? I hope my videos of Universal will help lots of people too.
