    going it alone

    i was thinking about going to dl alone because i have to babies at home and if i wait until i can take them i might explode. my wife said she understands how much i love disney so she saays i should go. i figured if i'm going alone instead of wdw i'd try dl. i was wondering if i would be able to meet up with any mice chatters for the day or three? i will be going in late aug or early sept.

    Go at it alone. I do the parks alone most of the time as it frees me to do anything I want without having to be concerned about the person with me wanting to something else. When I am alone, I can take my time doing things that interest me...like shopping and going overbudget, skipping some rides etc etc. As for meeting other Micecahhters....they seem to be a pretty tight and dedicated bunch about DL. I am sure you will be bound to run into someone there for a meet. Just tell us when you'll be there and where and someone is bound to show up.

    Oh, I'd hate to have you explode! You shouldn't have any trouble meeting up with someone. I like to go alone as well for all the reasons TDLFAN mentioned.

    Wait until you can take them? DL is such a stimulating place! My daughter made her first trip to DL at a couple of months and WDW before she was a year. It probably helped that we took her everywhere and that she traveled very well. Great character stories too. Donald saw her in an empty place in Toon Town and commented how cute she was. It surprised my wife and she yelled "he spoke!" Donald started shushing her saying that she was going to get him in trouble. Launchpad actually held her, which I was told is against the rules. It ended with her leaving her mark of baby throw up on his leather jacket and then falling asleep.

    Then there was also the incident where some old man yelled at my wife for breast feeding at the tables on Main Street behind the fruit stand.

    I must admit that I did sneak away for some alone time in the parks during our stay in WDW. My wife still laughs that I'm still the biggest kid in the family. I was so excited, I couldn't sleep!

    Last Sunday in August is Bats Day (www.batsday.net). I know I'll be there, and several others from this site will be in Disnayland that day.

    Yes, taking your child or children when they are young is creating the memories for the parents and the photos to reflect on later.

    So if you want to go now by yourself, go for it! But don't forget or wait too long to bring your kids! I do enjoy Disneyland by myself but only in small doses.

    You will never be alone in the Park as long as Micechat is around. Going "Bat's Day" also!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!
