Hi everyone. I finally have a day off and time for myself. I was wondering if a lot of people go to DL alone. Is it lonely/awkward while waking through the park or getting on the rides? I'm thinking of going today, but all my friends are at work.

I took my first solo trip this past month and I absolutely loved it! You can go at your own pace and do whatever you want! Be sure to take time and take pictures! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 1:19PM
have you ever gone to the mall alone? This is way better. - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 1:11PM
Lol. Yay. I'm gonna go - tish  264.7 #1214 1:13PM
you can window shop, eat where and when you want, single rider lines. No one to worry about. It is actually very peaceful and mentally recharging. Have fun cuz Im stuck here at work. - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 1:20PM
I like going alone because you can do whatever you want to do. There's no fighting on where to eat or what to ride, so it's very relaxing. Use those single rider lines and if you are needing some company, post a meetup! - Sarafina  491.7 #432 1:12PM
There is nothing wrong with going alone. You will maybe feel awkward at first but that's normal. No one will think you are strange. It's nice to have time to yourself once in awhile. Just go and have a great time. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 1:07PM
Thanks. Yeah. I'm thinking it will be awkward at first lol. But I'll keep myself occupied with mousewait lol. - tish  264.7 #1214 1:09PM
I'm there now.. its very different in a good way to go solo - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 1:11PM
I go alone once on awhile. But always end up with mwers. - fairyshley  479.8 #443 1:14PM
Do u go to the meetups or just run into them - tish  264.7 #1214 1:21PM
A little of both. I'm not a fan of being alone. - fairyshley  479.8 #443 1:22PM
Lol me neither - tish  264.7 #1214 1:46PM
Lol we would make good friends - fairyshley  479.8 #443 2:22PM
I used to go alone all the time. I never felt alone unless I was eating. I would always find people to talk to in line. - brettf22raptor  8.1 #12620 1:16PM
This is true, eating alone for me is the hardest part, but I'm usually on MW so it's not too bad. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 1:18PM
I know what u mean lol. I'd probably just send a bunch of texts during that time lol - tish  264.7 #1214 1:23PM
I would usually text people, upload pictures to Facebook, or just get a seat close to a window/edge of the seating area where I could people watch. - brettf22raptor  8.1 #12620 1:50PM
I would LOVE to be at Disneyland by myself. Go! Have fun! Get your pictures taken with the characters! Plus, you can go in the single-rider lines. Woo hoo! - LightyearsMommy  21.9 #7017 1:04PM
I totally forgot about the single-rider line. :) - tish  264.7 #1214 1:10PM
Hello. Going to the parks alone it's awkward at all. In fact many fellow MWer go in there own all the time. You may get a chance to do the thing your not able to do when in a group. But the most important thing is that you make the best of it and enjoy your self. If you decide to go I hope you have a great time - Bambi.  605.0 #338 1:10PM
:) thanks so much - tish  264.7 #1214 1:12PM
Walking* - tish  264.7 #1214 1:11PM
Definitely go! It's really no big deal and most people who see you alone, will probably think you are not there alone and that you probably want to ride some rides others didn't want to go on. That being said, when I see someone there by themselves (figuring they didn't break away from their group), I think they look so relaxed and that they are enjoying their alone time. Go and have a great time by yourself! :) - kss4tink  218.0 #1760 1:16PM
Thanks :) - tish  264.7 #1214 1:48PM
Once you get there you will feel wonderful. I am going alone later tonight after I do many chores too. If you get lonely look for a MW meetup or host one of your own and you will meet up with a MWer or two. - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 1:17PM
Thanks. If I c u. I'll say "thanks" in person - tish  264.7 #1214 1:48PM
I go alone constantly since my hubby isn't a fan! I love it! I stay at fav Disney hotels, eat at nice places, ride everything I want when I want! I do it at least once or twice a year! I find it very relaxing, fun, and very enjoyable!! I usually go at slower less crowded times of year. Always talk to people waiting in lines or at parades. Safety first I never tell people I am trveling alone though. Single rider lines are a plus, I highly recommend it! You are able to stop and really take in all the magic! Strike up a conversation with cast members too they tell you so many tips, and info love them! I never feel lonely just lost in the Disney bliss! :) - Redman  164.0 #2508 1:17PM
Also use photopass the Disney cast members took pics of me everywhere I wanted one was awesome!!! - Redman  164.0 #2508 1:19PM
Oh oh. Great Yay - tish  264.7 #1214 1:49PM
Not at all...its nice..plus single rider lines...i like to go watch all the shows..i typically go by myself..the only thing awkward is I love to dance at the mad T party..n I feel I stick out all alone - disneychanga  64.3 #4309 1:25PM
Ahahahaha u have way more courage than I do :) - tish  264.7 #1214 1:49PM
Single rider and my on my own schedule is plenty of reason to go by yourself. - Dipper_Pines  123.5 #3154 1:48PM
I'm going today by myself!!!! I've been a couple of times, it can be nice bcz ur on ur own schedule. I plan on being there in the afternoon. Maybe I will see you, there! - MousekaTINA  6.5 #14950 1:51PM
I go solo all the time. It is great to be on your own time schedule. - CT4625  36.0 #5463 1:53PM
Go! Solo trips are great! I love going with my friends or family, but sometimes I look forward to a me day. Do it! It will feel a bit awkward at first, but once you start feeling the Disney magic you will relax and enjoy yourself. - BRabbit  744.3 #261 2:27PM
In a weird way I feel most connected to Disney when I go solo. It's a more sentimental kind of feeling that I really enjoy. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 2:52PM
Sometimes I wish I could go solo but I have a 1 yr old And daddy is at work. I do go just me n her sometimes but sometimes I do wish I could go by myself and just get on everything I want! To just buy a candy apple and ride the train, to go on the single rider lines, to make line to take a pic with a character without my hubby saying next time! Or needing to change a dirty diaper lol Enjoy for us that can't go solo :D - annjay07  170.5 #2400 2:54PM
Just do it, nobody cares. I've done it because I have an annual pass and live so close I can just go on minutes notice. Plus non of my friends have annual passes and it's expensive so its hard to get ppl to go. Plus, you get to take advantage of single rider. Yeah, it's a weird feeling but it's better than waiting around for people to go with. But today will be crowded because of the whole space shuttle thing. - WreckRalph  3.3 #33750 3:09PM
Me and some others just got here come Join us - Hendizl  2821.9 #46 3:18PM
I think it would be awesome to spend the day by myself, doing what I want when I want! Go for it and have fun! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 4:35PM
Solo? whats that...lol. You should go and see how it feels. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 4:40PM
I would love that opportunity! Have a great time doing whatever you want to do :) - figzchic  806.6 #227 5:07PM
Disneyland is my favorite place to go alone while not alone. There are a bunch of people so it's not scary. You're by yourself, and you can think, and do anything you want without having to get approval of the group you're in. Have fun! You notice more details and appreciate YOUR favorite Disney "thing". - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 5:21PM
