It's seeming more and more likely that I will be traveling to WDW by myself for marathon weekend. Not to say that I'll be by myself when I get there...I have my fellow Team Voicers!! But none-the-less, I'll be leaving my family behind when I go. I'm interested to see what it will be like traveling alone. I am trying to approach it as an adventure, and I think it will be. The only "problem" I see is the accomodations I'm going to have to settle for. It appears that Scopa Towers (aka Pop Century) is going to be my home base for the five days I'm there. I don't mean to insult anyone who opts for value resorts, but I was really hoping to shoot for something in the Epcot area, which would mean Boardwalk, Yacht Club, or Beach Club. The issue is, I can't seem to convince my wife that a solo trip is worth that kind of expense. We are planning a large family trip sometime after the marathon, probably late August or November, and then we will likely stay at Boardwalk. But I'm impatient darn it!! With people like Deb talking up the Boardwalk and reading what others have to say about Yacht and Beach, it sure makes it hard to accept the idea of a value resort.
Oh well....I think I'm beginning to get a bit greedy. I should just be overwhelmed with excitement that I'm going to WDW....and I am...honestly. By the time the marathon rolls around, it will have been over two years since my last trip. That's the longest "dry spell" I've had in quite a few years. So really...I could stay in a sleeping bag, on a bench, next to a LEGO figure at Downtown Disney, and be happy just to be there.
So where's everyone else staying? Please, I don't mind a little salt in the wound. I'm curious to see what kind of experience everyone else is going to have.
