I Take Orders from Just One Person ... ME! A Solo Trip Report

When I booked my family’s 2020 WDW vacation, I had no idea that it wouldn’t happen until 2021. Nor did I know that we’d be back just 4 months later. I certainly didn’t foresee coming back for a third time, this time “Solo,” within a year.

If I had, I would have bought an Annual Pass while I had the chance!

My room is probably best. It’s quiet, has a great view, and two beds.

Of course you’re going to Florida, because I’m going to Arizona this weekend! Enjoy! I hope you have the best time even without the cute kids. Can’t wait to see photographic evidence of your Super Liner Bros. meet with @mousematt.

I should clarify that I DO have an AP for Universal! That makes my decision to head there tomorrow much easier on the wallet.

Yeah… I figured you meant WDW since they suspended sales for so long! (Is this your first ride on either VC or Hagrid?)

Gonna do any Genie + research since you’re basically the forum guru?

I’m trying to do a balance of winging it and using my deep and immense background knowledge to optimize. I’ll mostly be stacking LLs for the evenings, so I imagine I should be in pretty good shape, even if I don’t try hard. :joy:

You’ve been an amazing resource for so many that you deserve to reap some LL benefits! Look forward to following along!

The nice thing about traveling for work is I can get early bird check-in without having to pay for it myself. So I didn’t have to wake up at 5:50am and still got A-30 and A-45 boarding passes (it automatically gave me both right at the 24-hour mark, even though it wasn’t 24 hours before my connecting flight).
