I'm planning on visiting DL today when I get off work alone because my wife and daughter have something going on tonight. A coworker told me that was creepy an older guy going alone. Now I have mixed feelings. Is it totally weird to go alone? Your thoughts please..

It's not creepy.... what's creepy is your co-worker thinking about things that would make it creepy to go solo. What would your co-worker do if he went alone... THAT'S creepy. - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 12:33PM
Lol true - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 12:46PM
So true! - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 12:48PM
πŸ‘πŸ‘ - MikaDreamsEverythingDisney  249.1 #1364 12:53PM
Agreed - pintsize  290.1 #972 12:57PM
Your co-worker is lame. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 11:23AM
Not creepy at all! Disneyland is for ALL AGES, not just children and families :). - kss4tink  218.0 #1760 1:28PM
Just do it. ~Nike :) its not weird at all! Enjoy! - LoveDisneyDucklings  28.9 #6116 11:12AM
Don't listen to them a lot of us go alone it's fun. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 11:13AM
Nope, some people think it's weird, but if you've never done it then you can't bash it. Go for it, you'll have a blasty blast! - MJisMM  31.0 #5885 11:14AM
Awesome, thanks for the responses. I am gonna go, who cares what they think, I know I'll have a great time! - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 11:15AM
Exactly! Have fun! - LoveDisneyDucklings  28.9 #6116 11:17AM
Yes go and have a great time. - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 11:24AM
Single rider line, no one telling you what ride to go to next, and you can leave when you want to... Sounds like fun!!! - T.Mouse  299.1 #923 11:24AM
I was feeling the same way, but am already planning out my day when I go by myself!  Single rider line..here I come!  Go for it!! - CheshireAlyCat  233.3 #1565 12:27PM
Just do it and hang out with MW'ers. I went solo earlier this year, felt weird at 1st, but the you can do things you want to do - Villescas8  606.9 #336 12:29PM
It's not creepy at all. I go by myself often and see a lot of others that do so too. It's totally normal. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 12:36PM
Your coworker is jealous. Go have a blast. - chipanddalefan  733.4 #264 12:36PM
Going alone is the best!! Do whatever YOU want to do 😊 Clearly your coworker is not a true Disney lover. Go and enjoy! - DaisyBell  695.5 #283 12:36PM
Thank you! I definitely will! - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 1:09PM
Check your spelling and edit your post before your wife sees it. - Mouse4life  1681.2 #100 12:37PM
Haha... Just caught that!! Ooops! Thanks! That might offend... - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 1:10PM
That's not creepy. You should be allowed to have fun and enjoy DL no matter who is with you. I say go and have a good time. You can always look for MWers if you want company. - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1026.3 #178 12:40PM
It would be great to meet up with some MW'ers, unfortunately my Droid got smashed this morning and i wont have a new one in time for tonight. If anyone is going to be there tonight it would be great to meet up and catch a couple rides together. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 1:11PM
Go and have a great time! I sure would if I lived close enough. - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 12:43PM
not creepy. it's only creepy if you start stalking people and staring LOL go have fun and enjoy yourself! - VegasDisneyFreak  221.2 #1717 12:55PM
sounds like your CoWorker is not comfortable in their own skin and has social issues that prevent him or her from doing things in life on their own...There is nothing wrong with doing things and going places by yourself no matter how old you are esp going to Disneyland..I love going with big groups and alone alike...I find it very peaceful and relaxing while by myself and get to enjoy the parks in a dfifernt way than I would with a small group or large group - Dave  13499.4 #2 1:02PM
Well said πŸ‘ - puppycat  32.3 #5767 1:08PM
Not creepy! I get made fun of a lot for going to movie theaters on my own. It's just a better experience! You just need to be comfortable in your own skin, and like everyone said you get to take the parks in at your own rate. I like bringing my DSLR and taking photos :) - puppycat  32.3 #5767 1:10PM
That's exactly what i had planned on doing also, i packed the DSLR this morning to get some great shots. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 1:13PM
If its something you want to do I say go for it! - landoversky  100.2 #3596 1:11PM
Your co worker is just jealous! - MagicalLand  414.2 #535 4:07PM
Solo is fun!  I work right near DL and have been known to pop over after work on particularly hard days or ones when my bf is working late.  It's nice because you can do anything you want plus I've met some very nice people in single rider lines. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 4:09PM
going alone is a lot of fun. i single ride all the single ride-able rides. i eat a dole whip while people watching. i offer to take pics of couples/families that always have that one person out of a picture. ive made it a point to do that once a trip bc people get so happy to be in pictures together. its a good time. i also eat at restaurants alone and watch movies by myself. ok now im getting a lil sad... - Radius  502.7 #425 4:12PM
Everyone has an opinion, and unfortunately they think they need to be heard!!  There is absolutely nothing wrong with going solo.  It can be relaxing and peaceful just being at the parks.  Grab yourself a snack, catch the parade, go on a ride, or just sit and unwind.  A little bit of Disney magic can do a lot for the psyche!! - Willierose  2348.6 #67 4:17PM
Solo allows you to really see the park details without distractions. You will end up With mousewaiters anyways which increases the fun. Heck going to work alone with folks you really don't know is creepy to me.Β  - Plumiegirl  10135.3 #8 4:19PM
Go enjoy yourself. - goosiekeen  7.9 #12971 4:20PM
Solo trips are awesome! Go for it!!!! - BRabbit  744.3 #261 4:23PM
Nope not at all!!! I'm planning on doing the same today πŸ‘πŸ˜Š - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 8:42AM
youre not alone we are always there :) - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 9:09AM
So glad you had an amazing time-good for you!! - DisneyDawn  419.2 #531 9:06AM
I don't think anyone would notice. Have fun if yu do decide to go. - BelleLuver  47.3 #4897 9:12AM
I and enjoy the time! Last night I had a little alone time and I sat and enjoyed the sounds, sights and smells of Main St USA, ended up walking through the theatre and watching moments with Mr Lincoln - loved it !! - GooberGuz  59.7 #4443 9:13AM
I have a great time going solo! Other guests are not going to look at you and think "how creepy, he's here alone". Everyone is too into what they are doing. And even if someone notices, you could just be on your own for an hour or so while your wife and daughter go on a ride. No one would know the difference. Take advantage of the alone time and have a blast! - JessicaRabbit33  670.3 #302 9:15AM
Welcome to the lounge. Hope you have a fantastic time. - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 9:19AM
I felt the same way as you. I thought gosh, what if others look at it the same way as him and i'm just a weirdo for not looking at it that way... Hmmm... But I'm glad you all cleared that up. Come to think of it, he is kind of a weirdo! LOL.. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 12:36PM
Thanks for all the positivity!! Last night was awesome! I met a few really nice people and had an amazing time! I am going to have to do that more often!! - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 8:40AM
Happy to hear you had fun. Lots of people are very hesitant about going alone if they have never done it before, but it's fun to shake things up a bit. I always meet great people. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 8:46AM
I may just end up going again tonight since I had such a great time last night. But being it's the last night for the Socal passholders, it may be a lil' nuts! - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 8:48AM
Im glad you took everyone 's advice and went to Disneyland. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 9:10AM
