    DH & I have gone to DW every Feb for 15 yrs (several times with ext'd family). Next yr it will just be 2 of us & we will both be 75. Do you think we'll stand out and look foolish? We hope not. Maybe there should be a Disney site for super-senior

    First of all, Sandra, can I just say that I want to be just like you when I grow up? ;)

    You absolutely will not look foolish.  I actually started paying attention to the "super-senior" guests at WDW during our trip two years ago and I was amazed at just how many of them there were.  We were traveling with my own "super-senior" grandmother at the time and I kept trying to convince her that her and my grandfather should take a solo trip to the World.  Every time I'd see a mature couple touring solo I'd point them out to her and say, "See.  They're doing it.  You can too!"

    During that same trip I had the most delightful conversation with a foursome (two super-senior couples) who were waiting in line behind us at the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  They told me all about the tradition they had started years before in which they left the grandkids and great-grandkids behind and headed to WDW to live it up.  They assured me of the fabulous time they were having and judging from the smiles they wore I was easily convinced.

    So I say don your Peter Pan cap and head to the Neverland that is Walt Disney World.  It's one of the few places I know of where once you cross under that welcoming arch, even the super-est seniors among us can feel like kids again.  Have a blast!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
