I haven't been on MW for a while. But I really want to go to the parks. None of my friends can make it but I'm thinking of making a solo trip. I know all of you would say do it. But I'm a little afraid. It would be a 4 hr trip there and home. ...

i did a solo night. never met mw'ers, but think i saw a few. i was scared getting there, but once i walked in, it was on like donkey kong, i was speedwalking the whole night, not having to wait for the kiddo and hubs to follow!! - tinkerbella728  175.7 #2308 12:22AM
I really want to meet MWers buy I'd be nervous just like you said. Thank you for your input! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:37AM
Solo trip is cool cause you can be social and joke/conversate with all your mouse-neighbors at the park. Even being solo, you can still have a great fun time and you can help make other peoples day even better with a witty joke or simple compliment. Just remember that at disneyland you are always among friends :) - joxua  98.2 #3623 6:25AM
Did a forced solo day when my husband got food poisoning on our trip. I decided to do the things I wouldn't normally do-draw all the characters at the animation studio, walk through innovations, paddle the canoes around Tom sawyer island, sit and watch people experiencing Disney magic (or meltdowns-lol) ride the train all the way around and take ridiculous photo pass pictures. It ended up being a very memorable day! Try it-I hope you find some new Disney magic in your sOlo trip. - missyandpaul  285.8 #1005 1:49AM
You should totally do it. While it is nice to have someone to share with,if you go alone you can make your own schedule, and to do whatever you want to do. That can be a lot of fun as well. - Bibba  463.0 #470 11:08PM
If I only had a four hour trip, I would go ALL the time! - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 11:15PM
Maybe I read it wrong😣 - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 11:17PM
Solo trips are the best. I don't know about driving 4 hours just to stop by real quick though. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 11:16PM
I know you've already asked me about this, but again I think you should do it! Solo trips are nice and you could always go to a meet up! - Jillian  767.1 #244 11:26PM
Awe Jillian you're so awesome. I'd live to meet you with you if we had the same on the same visit!'!! Thanks! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 11:50PM
Omg. So many typos. You know what I mean lol!!!!!!! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 11:55PM
I've never been to DL all alone but I would take a solo 4hr road trip. I'm sure you wont regret it - SThooray  6.3 #15326 11:28PM
I think going to it. AP pass is almost up and I think Itll make me decide if I should renew or not. Thanks guys!!!! You're they best!! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 11:32PM
I recently made my first solo trip, and I was a little scared at first too. I was afraid that it wouldn't be as special going alone, but that fear was quickly alleviated once I walked through the gate. I have been hundreds of times, but I began noticing things that I have never noticed before. I was more observant of tiny details and was able to take in more of the pure atmosphere at the parks. Plus, there is no greater sense of freedom (single rider is also a huge plus). Yes, it was a different experience, but it was unforgettable. I guarantee you will not regret it. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 12:06AM
Thank you jrdrummer!! I appreciate you're input!! I will go!!! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:17AM
You're welcome! Safe travels. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 12:35AM
Ughhhh I know I should miss dlAnd so muchhhh !!!! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:07AM
I go solo all the time and I live 3 hours away. I love being able to slow down and look at the park the way I want to. Single rider lines are great! - verolly  1090.5 #166 12:42AM
Well if you happen to go thurs of Friday message me we could do a couple rides!!! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:51AM
Or** - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:52AM
I use to go solo all the time and it's great. I'm single again and as much as I enjoyed going with my ex and loved our shared experiences, sometimes solo is even better. Just do it you won't regret it!!!! - acejedi  22.2 #6964 1:22AM
Really I won't?! - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 1:38AM
Wait if you'll be there Thursday or Friday. Is love to meet you - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 1:42AM

Solo trips are fun. I take pictures and update wait times. - Chumash28  1207.7 #143 3:41AM
I go solo most of the time. I take my time in looking at everything, taking pictures, posting wait times & you don't have to worry about what everyone else wants to do. - solomouselover  319.1 #806 4:02AM
I'd say do it if you want to! I don't have a pass anymore but I used to go by myself a lot to buy stuff like bday gifts since I went to school very close to the parks.. It's kind of a liberating feeling walking under that tunnel alone :) u can watch shows u normally wouldn't do and go as fast (or slow) as ud like and take a lot of photos! I know it can feel weird if u'd never done it before but if u really want to, go for it :) hope this helps and u have a great time! - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3838 6:16AM
Can't wait to hear all about your experience. I am taking a solo trip flying in from the Bay Area. I can't wait!! - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 6:32AM
So hardcore! haha. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 11:34AM
!!! :) !!! - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 11:41AM
there is always mw there you will have fun just do it - Hendizl  2822.0 #46 6:35AM
I go solo all the time! I can do whatever I want and I'm not on a schedule. It is fun! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 11:41AM
Thanks for all the input guys! I think I'll do it!! What's the worse that could happen!? - ruhkel  173.2 #2351 12:19PM
single rider line! do it do it! - OhanaPhoto  5324.9 #21 12:34PM
the four hour drive isn't so bad. I have done it a few times. By yourself it is easier to go to a meet up. I'm always with people that don't want to go. - DebbyMouse7531  535.2 #16 12:48PM
