Trip Report Pixiedust & Wanderlust - Solo Trip - August '19 *COMPLETED*

✨Hello and welcome!✨
I just came back from my first solo Disney adventure and wanted to share a little bit of my trip with you, my Disney friends.

This is only my second Trip Report, and it's still intimidating, specially when there are many great Trip Reports going on right now! I had the pleasure of meeting some of my most admired Trip Reporters on this trip, and let me tell you: All of them are as kind and fun as you would imagine! 😊

The When:
August 19 - August 27

The Where:
Pop Century Resort

The Why:
I've always wondered about Solo Trips to WDW. I've had the opportunity to visit with DH Frank 2 or 3 times a year for about 20 years now and on occasion, with other family members too.

Just about a month before my trip, Frank and I became empty nesters, our JC got his own place, and even though we are very proud of him and happy, I got nostalgic too. I guess Frank noticed, so he suggested that a visit to our favorite place, would be a good thing for me at this time. How could I say "no", right? :joyfull:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, I have to warn y'all, one of the many rookie reporter mistakes I made (and others to come), is that I wish I'd taken notes for each day, I didn't! So I'll have to rely on my pictures and my sometimes lacking memory.

This is me at The Flower and Garden Festival, last April/May.

Departure Day:

Frank was in Miami for training and I had to leave our house all closed for 3 days. My main concern was leaving my pet turtle behind, and trusting that JC will visit and feed her while we were gone! We've had Domenica for about 18 years! (would you believe that to this day we don't know if it's a She or He!?)
This is what she/he looks like:

I was very lucky to get a good rate on my airline tickets, mine was an international flight with one stop in Miami. I thought I was ready with my plans of taking a taxi to take me to the airport at 3:30 am but...

When I called, a very snappy girl told me they had no cars at that time! 😨 And with no Uber installed on my phone and no time to waist learning how to use it, there I was, nervous and flustered!

I finally decided on calling my dad. He lives about 2 blocks from our house. Poor dad, I woke him up and he showed up in his pajamas! Phew! He saved the day!

Got to the airport very early, so much so, that all the businesses were still closed and I desperately needed coffee!

This is what my boarding gate looked like at that unholy time:
