So I thought it might be useful for those who are interested in meeting up with other like-minded souls to have a thread where we can post when we're expected to be in the World, in case there are others who might be arriving around the same time.

My partner and I will be at WDW November 12-19. I have my park days all picked and I tend to be a bit of the commando in my touring style, but if anyone would like to meet up for a drink or a quick bite of something, maybe we can find a convenient time. We've gotta eat sometime! (Or my girl will kill me in a low blood sugar induced rage.) Happy to make new friends, always - couples, singles, men, women, gender fluid... don't matter none to us. Just drop a PM if you're interested!

This thread is for the remainder of 2016, for clarity's sake. Feel free to start a new one for 2017 and beyond. Those going to DL or ABD are welcome too... just be sure to specify!

Good idea Princesca! :D

I'll be in DW from 5th of september untill 16th :) I'll be there with my mother to celebrate her birthday and her Retirement (it doesn't happen really often that your mother ask to you "I would love to go to DW at least once in my life", so it was easy to find the perfect Gift for her :mickeyjum)

    Great idea! My wife and I are heading down to WDW October 26-Novemeber 8. This is a bit of a delayed honeymoon for us, so we have all kinds of ADRs to celebrate and plenty of park time! We're always excited to meet new people, especially Disney loving people :D

    That is a bummer! I am very interested what this trip will be like. I have zero idea what to expect. My first (and only) time visiting 5 years ago was at the end of August, and the crowds were not bad at all. This time we're going during food & wine and we have an overlap with the run Disney event, and we also hit Halloween. I'm crossing my fingers it won't be too insane.

    Thank you :D What a wonderful birthday trip!! That sounds like a totally awesome way to celebrate your birthday. I'm plotting a trip to WDW in May 2017 for my 30th birthday. Do you have any celebratory activities planned for your birthday while at WDW??

    Or Disneyland!! I'm a DL annual passholder so I go often!
    My wife and I are DL AP holders too! We're usually in the parks a couple of weekends a month.

    I'd love to meet up sometime! I need more Disney-going friends! I'm probably going to go the weekend of the 3rd-4th for one last 60th visit.

    I actually celebrated my 30th birthday at WDW. That was before they started the MNSSHP.

    Since it is my 50th, I decided to treat myself. So I decided to break the budget and stay at the Contemporary with a Theme Park view. This resort was on my bucket list ever since I went to WDW back in the 70's. Some of the other things I am doing is that I am actually going to MNSSHP. Now if I can just snag that allusive Hallow-wishes Firework Dessert Party ADR.

    But another activity I am doing is the Keys to the Kingdom Tour. I did a tour back in the 90's in Epcot and really enjoyed it. So I wanted to do another. I really would have loved to do more than just this one tour, but my friends will be arriving the next day, so I would rather spend the time with them.

    I have been able to make ADR's for Dinner at California Grill, Flying Fish and BOG. So I guess we will celebrate mostly through food and drink!!!

    Then I am treating my friends to Universal Studios/Island of Adventure later in the week. We are going to the Halloween Horror Night at Universal Orlando and spending a couple of days there before heading home.

    Since you are planning on going for your 30th, just plan to do what will be fun for you. If you can tie your trip to coincide with your actual birthday, go to your favorite theme park on that day and just do what you want to. I did that on my 30th and spent the day at the Magic Kingdom. My 50th is actually 2 days before my trip, but it was either delay the trip a few days or not have some friends being able to come.

    That would be really fun to meet up! We have some friends coming in to town that weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday though. It's one of the few birthdays we won't be in park. We're going to be up there for gay days though!

    That sounds like a really awesome birthday trip! I'm definitely considering splurging on a resort for my birthday, but we shall see. I hope you have a really fun trip and you can snag the dessert party!

    You're arriving the same day we are, but staying much longer (so jelly). We're heading to EPCOT on check-in day to kick our trip off with a dinner at Monsieur Paul. We should meet up at some point that first week and grab a drink or a coffee! My DP is a total addict when it comes to coffee. Like - we are at the point where I practically have to carry around an IV drip.

    That would be cool. I'm just going with a friend since I'm single! (arrgh! :crazy2: ).

    I haven't met anyone from here so you'd be my first! :scared:

    Me either so we'd be in the same boat! I will PM you later! :)
    Oh my.... Haven't your Furry Godmother told you about meeting up with Disney Fans from the interwebs? :rolleyes1

    Look at me... I'm still considered as family to some of the wonderful people that I met from here (old DisneySites) back in 2005 and 2010! :love: :goodvibes :rotfl: :thumbsup2

    Actually, I'm really excited for you! :jumping2::grouphug: :disrocks:
