    Last min solo WDW trip.

    Its about 0315 right now, I live in the Ft Laud area. I havent been to WDW in 2 months, this is the longest run in years. None of my friends can go, my girlfriend must work, and I have to cure this itch bad. Would it be crazy for me to wake up ina few hours and drive 300 miles to go solo for a few hours and drive right back? Opinions please, though I will probably do it either way. I have EVDO so I will be checking from the road.

    Well, I would.

    If...I had a drivers license.

    And If...I lived in Florida.

    Would it be crazy? Maybe. But hey, you only live once, right?

    Not crazy at all. Life should be full of spontaneous day trips to places you wanna go! Have fun!

    Re: Last min solo WDW trip.

    Speaking as a Disney fan I say go for it.

    Speaking as someone who lives an hour away. I try and secure a room first because every time I go and run myself ragged I end up exhausted to a point that its probably unsafe to drive. Now that's only an 80 miles trek, I can't even imagine staying that late and then driving 300 miles.

    If you can't afford the room, then I would say no. I would LOVE for you to go and I know what that itch feels like but I worry about your safety.

    Please...I would do it. Work is slow for me but I can't afford to leave. But if I was in your position, I would drive, drive away.

    Oh well.. whenever happens... I am sure you will enjoy it. I have always enjoyed my solo visits, No husband, No kids, No second opinions, No waiting for others to catch up, No worries...

    Go and HAVE FUN!

    Bah! Meetings are overrated. I've yet to walk out of a meeting and say to myself, "Well, that was certainly worth my time!"
    On the other hand, I have said that to myself after every WDW visit!
