Thinking of one last trip to Disney World

After the year we have all had, my inner child is screaming to be unleashed. The single best vacation I EVER went on was back in the late 90s, when I treated myself to a week at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
I had a sudden thought (senior moment, brain fart, whatever) of doing Disney one more time. I went solo last time, and enjoyed it to no end. I could be independant, do what I wanted, when I wanted and have a nice breather. I met some cool people, made good memories and came home tired and happy,
Yes, I may be nuts. But I realized I can afford it without putting the trip on credit cards. Maybe early next year....this time, maybe.

I live in California but I've never been to Disneyland. I wanted to take my kids when they were little but never did because of the expense. I paid into two savings accounts for each of them - one for their first car and one for college - and I didn't want to put those on pause. Only one of my kids went to college and not all of them bought a car, so we could've gone to Disneyland multiple times. But who knew, right?

Go for it!

The planning of such a trip is half the fun.

Do a little research on the availability of ECV/scooter rentals to make the time at Disney World less stressful.

Also, check out the hotels at Disney World for easier access to the park. Friends of mine stayed in a hotel that gave them easy access to the water taxi from the hotel to the park. Be sure to check which ferry boats allow ECV access before you book your stay.

Good luck!

There is a message forum called DisBoards (format similar to SF) that I used in the past. I already re-joined. There is a whole subforum for People with disabilities/mobility issues.
And yes, I do plan to stay onsite. That is half the fun, and there is Disney transportation to get you between parks.

I'd love to go to Disney World again. Last time I went via bus, a trip sponsored by the church 45 years ago. I took my son and we had a good time for the most part. Although I'm used to traveling alone, I would want to share the experience with someone. I can think of a few loved ones I'd like to take but with what's going on in their lives right now, it's just not possible. I think you should do it Marie! Then come back and let us know what a wonderful time you had (again). :D

I went to Disneyland, Paris just after it opened, I wasn't a bit comfortable, this blumming big mouse seemed to be following me around ( I don't know if he was a real one, or he just ate big dinners), then he was joined by a blumming big duck. I didn't know whether to offer them some of my candy floss, but I suspected that they'd have devoured all of it. :)

Yes, we got on rides. Lots of fun stuff. The teacups about made me barf. lol. It is just a wonderful and magical place. I also went to other attractions in San Diego. Zoo, UNIVERSAL Studios and others.

My GF at the time and I went in the 80s and had planned for a 1 week stay but instead stayed for two to see all the other attractions like Sea World. New things have been added since your last visit. With the pandemic, attendance is probably down which should mean shorter lines.

You could even be an onsite reporter to the forum.

GO!!! Took granddaughter and great granddaughters in 2018 and had a great time. I grew up in Anaheim, California went to Disneyland couple times a week for years, 😂. I love it there. Have not been to Disney World, doubt I’ll ever go, but I’d like too.

I say good for you and go for it!! My children grew in LA and I have been to Disneyland more times than I wanted. I now live in Florida not too far from Orlando. I am debating whether I want to go to Disneyworld.
If you have any desire, do it, and go back home tired and happy, again! 🤗
