    I live near Disneyland and I haven’t been brave enough to go solo. It’s crazy, because I’ve taken two European vacations alone and I go to the movies by myself all summer (I’m a teacher and nobody else is off!). Standing in those lines for rides alone just intimidates me! This post makes me think I might be brave enough to try it!

    It’s cool you went alone. I’ve been toying with the idea of a “big trip” lately alone and everyone asks me why I’d do it (and if I’m having trouble with my husband, haha). Sometimes it’s nice to do your own thing. Independence is a good thing.

    I totally know what you mean about “me” time!! There is nothing like it. It’s hard to come by with 2 kids, but my dream is to have a whole day at home with no one but me! Maybe in the next few months πŸ˜‰

    Wow Meghann – your hair looks fabulous today. I’ve never been a fan of bangs but they look super cute on you with that short hair. Love the slightly wavy/messy look.

    We thought about going to Disney when we go to Florida in April but decided to do a cruise instead. We’re big cruise fans. We’re doing the Allure this time – our first time on that huge class of ship.

    My favorite cookies in the world are from the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom! OMG have you had the giant cookie ice cream sandwich there? So so delicious! My latest love from the main street bakery is the giant chocolate covered apple. I love everything about Disney World, especially the food!

    I am planning on a Disney trip in probably 2-3 years or so when Max is old enough. I’ve been to DW many many times, and DL once (DW is SO much better!!). But it costs a lot to go down and because I’m a teacher, I have to go down on the busiest weeks πŸ™

    we were just there a month ago πŸ˜€ We weren’t keen on the new test track, but that’s because they were having some difficulties. You know when they’re testing the breaks and it stops short? We stopped short about 5 times throughout the ride, but it was much shorter and rougher than that. It hurt a little. Not a pleasant experience.

    I liked the pizza at Via Napoli, but not enough for the price I paid, lol. The pizza in actual Naples still definitely wins.

    You’ve never been on Toy Story Mania??? You know they have these things called Fast Passes… yeah, 80 minutes is way too long to wait, but really, it’s worth getting there early for. Please tell me you’ve at least been on the new Star Wars.

      Unfortunately they’re always out of fast passed when I try to go on Toy Story. I’ve been there at 11:00am before and they were already sold out of Fast Passes for the entire day – CRAZY! One day I’ll get to Hollywood Studios as soon as they open and nab a fast pass or just wait in the line. Yes, I’ve been on the new Star Wars a few times now. I’m a fan of the new updates.

    I don’t do 24 hours of “me” time all that much, but now that I’m training for the marathon my running time is enough of alone time. I have to say that italian restaurant looks amazing and is on my list for my next disney trip!!! Also, I did a day at Disney by myself once and loved it!

    So….who was takin those pictures of you? Did you ask a stranger to take your picture while you hold an ice cream? How embarrassing

    • Meghann
      March 3, 2013

      It’s actually not embarrassing at all and I don’t think folks should ever feel embarrassed to ask to have their photo taken if it’s just them. The ladies who took the photo of me with the ice cream were really sweet. They kept asking me which sundae I got and where they could get one too. They agreed that the caramel topping versus hot fudge was a wise decision. πŸ™‚

    I haven’t had a chance to dine at Via Napoli; it’s on my list of things to do before my season pass blocks me for summer. I am excited to experience Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival- I have never been!

    I have been to Disney several times on my own and always have a great time! I also enjoy hopping on the monorail and grabbing the occasional drink at the Contemporary & the Polynesian πŸ˜‰

    We just went to Disney yesterday- Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, which was ridiculously crowded! The Main Street Bakery is my favorite too – there’s just something about getting a sundae there!

    PS – I totally spent a couple of hours at MK after the bar. I went with a friend who had to leave the park early and I stayed by myself and rode all the rides. It was awesome πŸ™‚

    My friend works for Disney as an engineer, so she is the best person to go with and helps plan the day to be most efficient. When we went to Hollywood Studios (the day after the Princess Half last year), we immediately went to Toy Story Mania for a fast pass. The park had been open maybe an hour and we got one of the last fast passes. Definitely get to ride it when you can. So much fun!! And much better than the similar ride at Magic Kingdom (blanking on the name).
