    I am a lone Grandmom who loves Disney and want to visit next year, but my family wants to wait another year. Are there any legitimate organized Senior Groups who meet up on an annual basis or however something like this could run? I hope so. I need Disney!

    Hi, Jeannie!

    Good for you wanting to travel to Walt Disney World! There is so much magic just waiting for you, I can see why you do not want to delay for another year!

    Some suggestions....Start with your family! Perhaps you can find even one family member - maybe a sibling or grandchild - that may want to go. It does not have to be a grand gathering, just you and a pal! Sometimes it is nice to have just 2 people. This way you really get to do what you YOU want.

    You may also want to contact your local AAA, AARP, Senior Center, or travel agent to see if they have any organized groups going to the House of Mouse. They might have the perfect vacation all organized for you, and all you have to do is pack your bag!

    Finally, have you considered a solo trip? I have had the chance to travel for a day or two by myself to Walt Disney World, and I really enjoyed the relaxing pace. I took a book and read on Main Street USA, I lounged by the pool, and I proudly enjoyed snacks all around World Showcase in Epcot! It was nice to do exactly what I wanted. You might even take in a tour at one of the theme parks - there are so many options!

    I hope you make that trip to Walt Disney World, Grandmom, and when you do, say "HI" to Mickey Mouse for me!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
