Thank you, that is very helpful. I am concerned that it is too many days. Maybe I should cut the trip down to 5 days/4 nights?
If you're concerned about it being too long, then I would adjust it. If you go on the trip and think it wasn't long enough, add more time next time. I always think it's a good idea to start short though and then add more.

I would appreciate opinions on staying at Pop vs All Star Sports. In particular safety, convenience to non Disney eateries/universal studios, and anything else you can think of that might help me with my decision. Thank you in advance.
I would stay at POP if I had the choice. Out of all the All-Star resorts, Sports would be my last choice -I've stayed at Music for a couple days and that was fine. POP seems to be a little more relaxed than the All-Stars and just better overall.

Thank you for responding and your input. POP is the one I chose. I’m much more excited than I was when I was considering a non Disney property and have more peace of mind.

    I'm a DVC member, but when I need a room for a night or two I usually stay at POP and I enjoy it quite a bit. For the extra money, you are infinitely better off onsite vs offsite ..in my opinion. Have a great time...

    Hi everyone, I am thinking about going to WDW for my birthday in October (~16-21 maybe). I went to MNSSH party last October, a bit nervous to do go on my own this time around.
    I am planning on going over a few of those days if you wanted to meet up at the Halloween Party!

    I'll be there solo August 26-31. Booked (and plane tickets paid for) before last week's news, oh boy. I'm undecided on specific plans but will almost certainly do my HS touring on the first day and then avoid it the rest of the week...

    I prefer to stay on Disney property for solo trips for that extra peace of mind, too. I rely on Disney’s transportation to/from the airport and from resort to the parks and have never felt unsafe or isolated during a trip.

    For those of you feeling anxious about going solo or worried about being lonely - I felt the same way before my first solo trip. But just go!!! You will have an absolute blast doing what you want to do when you want to do it. Most people visiting are in a good mood because they are on vacation and will be happy to chat you up if you give them an opening. And no one else will really know you are on a solo trip unless you tell them. It’s actually pretty common to see parties of one walking around, even if they travelled with a larger group.

    And do not forget the single rider benefit! There are dedicated single rider lines for test track, expedition Everest, and rock’n’roller coaster. I’ve also gotten lucky on soarin’, 7DMT and FOP and been pulled from further back in the line to fill an empty seat. So less waiting!

    My first solo trip is one week away! I've got some first times lined up - first F&G trip, first DAH (AK and MK). Is it weird that I'm more excited for this one than other trips?

    I am considering a solo trip at the end of August, but not sure yet. I have two kids and we are actually going (with my ex) at the end of September, but since I will likely get an annual pass, I'm considering doing the August trip too. I've traveled alone before to Philly, NYC and Chicago, but doing Disney will be totally different so I'm not sure. I'm glad there is a board like this one!

    Welcome! You'll have a great time. The weather should be nice and you'll be in and out just before the Thanksgiving holiday crowds.

    I've gone solo several times, but won't be while you're there, but just wanted to chime in that you totally should go to the Christmas party (MVMCP)! We went to that last year for the first time and it's just magical...the fireworks, snow on main street, lesser lines, etc. I'd totally encourage you to do it!

    Thanks - Crowd predictors are high the last day but think I will just chill out at the hotel
