    As fate would have it, my flight on Thursday has been changed, and instead of arriving at 6pm, I will now be arriving at 10am! I had the extra vacation time, so the change wasn't a big deal, but now I find myself with a few hours alone in "The World" before my partner in crime arrives, and I'm wondering...what would YOU do with eight hours to wander on your own? What park would you go to? What ride you go on solo? Or would you just chill by the pool with a fruity drink? I've always said I would roam around and take all the pictures I want without being hurried, or feeling rushed...but because this trip is so short, I wasn't really planning on bringing the "big" camera...

    So then! Thoughts? I'm sort of excited!

    Well, it would depend upon the weather of course.

    Also, would depend a bit on the resort. If I were looking for relaxation and "me" time before a whirlwind "tour" with a friend/friends, I'd go for the pool and margaritas or shots of silver Patron. :D :D And an excellent book. I'd take a break and have a bite to eat, again depending upon the resort.

    I'd explore the resort, be sure I knew all the latest and greatest it had to offer.

    Maybe, I'd work in some sort of spa event.

    I don't get the opportunity to focus solely on what I want to do to the exclusion of all others, so that's what I'm guessing I'd do.

    I'll second that :D and menus from the resort with photos of the restaurant pretty please :D

    Or you could wander round DTD and take photos of all the retaurants and eateries and their menus

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    I dont think i could do a park or rides alone, i like to do things like that with others. I could quite happily wander around dtd alone though - infact id love that as there would be nobody moaning at me about how much im managing to spend!!

    talking of spending money in DTD, i love that little shop by the cinema all the way down towards the cirque end.

    GREAT paintings and little nick nacks. Clocks made out of computer components and all sorts of stuff.

    I'd have spent a fortune but how do I get it all back :/

    I'm not sure what id do, probably have a wander around world showcase and really explore the countries. Or perhaps see if there was anything the other person didn't want to do and I fancied doing. Or maybe do one of the tours or experiences such as behind the scenes.
