Hey fellow MW'ers- is it strange to go to DL alone? The grandson is busy and the wife has other things going on tomorrow, and I wanted to go to the parks to hang out, look at decorations and ride a few attractions. Is that weird? What say ye?

not at all...lots of people take solo days in the parks! go and enjoy yourself!  - luxkitty  2335.1 #51 1:34PM

We made the decision to allow our passes to expire last February and have been going to the parks far less (only when a close friend/CM signs us in. We tried not to use that much, because we felt like we were using out friend. Yesterday we went and made the decision that we could once again afford the premium passes, so we bought them. Expensive, but worth it. Now if I could just find a way into c  More...

Had the opportunity to shop at Company D this afternoon thanks to a CM friend of mine and it was pretty cool. The wife and I picked up some pretty nice jackets and a pair of new watches as well as a few other things. It was pretty awesome, and was one more thing I can check off my "things to do at Disney" list!

Sounds like you aren't broke from going there like I would be! - PrincessDaisy  307.7 #794 11:59PM

The wife and I happened to be in OC today, so decided to "pop-in" for an hour or so. As long as we have been coming to DL, I have not been in the Tiki Room for over 25 years (and she's never seen it); we usually just walk right by it. Today I said-"Hey, lets go in the Tiki Room!" (I actually remembered the Tiki song) I also detest pineapple, so I've never tried a Dole Whip. Tod  More...

Thanks all, we had a wonderful time. Steakhouse 55 was great, but the best experience was the Napa Rose. The desk clerk suggested the restaurant. We had the Vintners Table, which was hands down the best restaurant experience we have had as a couple. - Firelt  228.6 #1532 9:21PM
