Splitting Up

We haven't talked about solo trips for a while. For those who never go solo, do you usually spend 100% of the time together, or do you split up some of the time? We tend to split up a bunch but that's because we have content we have to get.

Sometimes we do. Well... ill put it this way. We usually go with my parents, and it usually goes with my Mom going one way... my son and my Dad going one way... and Jess, my daughter and I the other. That was last year mostly.... hoping it changes a bit this year because Jess and I didnt really get to do what we wanted to do. We were stuck on a mission to get Brooke to all of the Princess's.... waiting for Rapunzel for over two hours is over kill....

For us the key word is NEVER split up. We are together 100% of the time and that is per our own choosing. We are on vacation together and we stay together.

My friends and I stay together for the most part. We have split up on occasion, mostly it's because they want to head back to the resort and I want to stay in the park a little while longer.

The split up for my family generally happens in 2 places. Epcot world showcase, and Downtown Disney. Those 2 places are more go at your own pace, not going from ride to ride. Other then that everyone that we go with rides everything, and we all eat together.

Ditto for us as well. However I'm thinking I may have to ride TOT alone a time or two since I plan on wearing that ride out and DH isn't much of a fan.

We stay together as much as possible. My daughter is tall enough to ride some things so my husband and son will go ride something and my daughter and I will go ride something else. But its a family vacation and we want to be together. I am sure as they grow up they will want to leave us more and more, so I want to have as much time with them as possible now.

I usually go with my parents and brother and more often than not, Mum and I will split to go off shopping whilst the boys go to a water park or head to a park. Sometimes my brother and I will head off to do some rides or get some gifts for our parents, this up coming trip we're planning the odd seperate dining reservation too as my brother and I really enjoy foreign foods, where as my mum will only eat chicken and chips lol!

Generally, 90% of the time we stay together as a group, but as we've got older we have branched off a little bit more, though never for more than a few hours.

We usually stay together except for the occassional split to hop in single rider line.

Well yeah, we do that too at times, but Scrappy won'tgo off anywhere, she just waits for me.

In general we stay together. However, I've found that more frequently we go the more we feel that we can split up sometimes if we need to.

So "us" is me and my husband. Generally speaking, when at WDW we only split up a two times.

1. When I want to go swimming. He isn't a swimmer and I LOVE the pool, so if I go, he hangs out, relaxes, whatever.
2. One our last day. We usually cover most of what we both want to do during our various days. There may be certain things that only one of us wants to do. If time is tight on that particular day, it will be the thing that gets skipped. So on the last day, we usually allocate a few hours to "do our own thing" that we didn't get to do and the other has no interest in. Then we are together again for the last night.

^ I hope that made sense (it did to the voices in my head). confused

Otherwise, we basically stay together. Interestingly, it's a little different when we cruise, but that's a different question.

Ditto here too.... neither one of us is big on doing things solo, might be different when we have kids... but for now we do everything together! =)

I will occasionally peel off while hubby (and our friends, if they come along) rides something that would make me hurl. I'll spend my time getting FastPasses or riding something non-hurl-inducing. And once, when everyone else was being party poopers and just sitting resting their poor aching legs and backs (wimps), I went off on my own. Aside from that, we stay together.

Ditto as well. We both love the coasters and the big stuff so we don't separate. We are apart too much in real life we enjoy just hanging together.

Same as above! Well, except for the roller coaster part. DH and I usually work opposite shifts from each other so vacation time is some of the only quality time we can get together muchlove

That being said, I will wander around the resort on my own if DH is sleeping or something but otherwise we're together.
