Here i go with another happy TR after i said i would not do this again
Dates - 11-28 to 12-4
Resort Saratoga Springs (DVC)
Travelers ME Jeff
Celebrating my 45th birthday and my first time doing MVMCP Oh and did i mention SOLO!!!
So here goes the reason i say solo not so solo , is because my brother was suppose to come with me but he just moved and might not be able to come now . I'm not losing any sleep if he does not . and i know you guys are going to ask the million dollar ?? is how did i get permission from my wife to go ? she came up to me one day and said there is a scrapbook meet in vagas so my mind hit over drive I said no problem on your solo trip with a tiny condition i can go to disney for my birthday and the wife went for it
so here goes i was lucky when the flights for Jet blue were released i got rt for 159.00. and i got a 6am departure from JFK in NY and i arrive in MCO just after 9am then i will head to right now it is Advantage rent a car on property got a great rate for 117.00 with a discount for a large car more room yeah ! after that it of to that magical road that leads to Walt Disney World , I will head to Saratoga to see if i can get lucky to check in early fingers crossed if not since i know im going to be a bit tired from the flight but the adrolin will be at high so i think i will head to DTD with a lunch meet with other disney friends . then maybe a nice dip in a pool and relax and then get ready for dinner it is still up in the air what im doing either on or off property . but here is a list of places off property i want to hit
steak N shake , Giordanos the best pizza anywhere , i know you guys might think im crazy but i want to go to Golden coral ,
Im not on the dining plan but i do want to eat somewhere special for dinner on my birthday which im also doing MVMCP that night so this ansawer will come later .
I would start to go into a day to day thing , but im solo / With magical friends so im playing everything by ear or as i say Commando . I will post things that i add as i go a long so hop on the Magical Express of my solo not so solo trip
Thank you everyone
I will add one meal that im doing is my birthday breakfest will be compliments of Denny's free Grand slam on your birthday
i would rather save a bean or two for my Birthday dinner that is deffinetly on property
i have to see who else off property offers a free meal for birthdays for lunch ?
Thank You everyone ,
we went to K-Mart yesterday and i picked up a 2 peice 20" carry on suitcase and a tote i was going to buy a good one but decided to but the 19.99 one .
Now I'm of needing suggestion from anyone what should i do ?
Im a DVC member and im thinking of the dining plan ?
REG dining plan one TS one CS one snack and free cup ? $50.54 a day 309.00 for trip
CS dining 35.00 a day 210.00 for trip
or should i just stick with going off property here and there to eat i will have a car .
the reason i started to think i should do this is if i have a big birthday meal and it runs me about 70.00 for one meal then i should shoot for the stars, is what i think ? what do you guys think ?? neeed feed back please
