Had anyone here gone to Disneyland solo? I always contemplate it but never do it.

I did once earlier this year. My wife almost divorced me over it. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 7:41AM
I feel like my wife would kill me too! - RandyNewman  402.2 #560 7:43AM
Yes! I love it! You get to do what YOU want to do! And you're never really alone when you have MW!  - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 7:43AM
 it's nice break to do things at your own pace and not be pulled in different directions. - toph  2418.2 #60 7:43AM
I go by myself all the time. It's very relaxing because you can do everything totally at your own pace. And with MW you are never lonely because you can always meet up with other MWers or at least post in the lounge.  - DisneyFan  89.8 #3751 7:44AM
I was thinking about going today for a couple hours, maybe I'll wait and check the roll call! - RandyNewman  402.2 #560 7:46AM
Almost every time. - RadioMaverick  1175.2 #149 7:46AM
A few times. at first it feels really odd....like you wanna turn and say what next or do you have to go potty LOL. But you can shop at your own lesiure without constatntly looking for the rest of your party. You can eat whatever you want. You start conversations with people you'd probably never do in real life...you can sit and people watch and marvel at the cankles....oh try it. - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 7:48AM
I do it and enjoy it a lot. Your able to do things at your own pace. I enjoy looking in the stores and when I'm with the kids I don't get to do that ad much. - disneygal  433.2 #506 7:53AM
"Marvel at the cankles"  you crack me up Bitterlina! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 7:55AM
Bitterlina please tell me you are coming to the MW Bday meetup! - toph  2418.2 #60 7:57AM
The only time I go solo is when the family poops out on me around 8 pm then I close the park down !!! d;D - Thegrumpyone  113.1 #3374 7:58AM
I do it all the time. - PieEyedMickey  296.6 #936 7:59AM
With so many MWers in the park ou are never alone in the parks. - Disneybird  172.9 #2357 7:59AM
I don't think I ever would. I would want to share the memories with someone else! - Lynette  12.0 #9859 8:18AM
Got to admit if I went alone I would feel like a creeper. - Bubbak1988  29.3 #6063 8:19AM
Yeah, I think about it but then I think how much I enjoy it with my kiddos! - Bunnie  541.2 #381 8:19AM
The first time I went by myself, I was actually alone for about 1 hour, then found MWers and I have never been alone since. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #225 8:19AM
You probably have all seen people at the parks abd you just know they are there alone. Business folk that have one day to seee it all, things like that. You know they might feel a little outta sorts being by themselves. We tend to pick up on it and chat them up in lines. Give them suggestions what to do, what to see, and so forth. Sometimes we ask if they wanna hang out. BGe a good neighbor...and no I don't have or work for All State. - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 8:23AM
Have gone solo several times and really enjoy it. But then, I have no problem going to movies or eating out solo either, which I know some folks wouldn't imagine doing. I was an only child and very comfortable doing things solo. Noticed I said solo and not the word alone. I always chat with folks around me so I never feel alone. - DesperateMousewife  877.4 #209 8:28AM
There were lots of times I contemplated going solo.... Until I joined MW and before I had met my bf, it seemed like the only option. If you don't have Friends who share the same obsession, going more than once a year is asking too much. I had friends who would go... But didn't understand the magic. NOW I have an awesome boyfriend who is equally obsessed and amazing MW family to join me if I ever had to go alone. - michelledork  696.2 #282 8:31AM
I did once. It was lonely. I like being with my fam much more. - MagicalCaprice  480.7 #442 8:34AM
Several times. What YOU want when you want it. - CantWait  1111.1 #164 10:24AM
Here's something that helped me the first time I went by myself: even when you're in a group, often you run off to grab something from your locker, do a ride that no one else wants to do etc. then meet up again right? So no one is looking at you like you're wearing a scarlet A for "alone!". That helped me a lot with self consciousness. I wouldn't want to always go by myself, but if it's that or not go, definitely go--it's really fun in a different way. And meet up with a mwer or few- I had great with that :) - Robynlaurel  651.8 #308 10:34AM
*great luck* - Robynlaurel  651.8 #308 10:36AM
I think i'll go Thursday! - RandyNewman  402.2 #560 12:27PM
I've gone several times alone. I'm used to it but it's always better to be with people. Ever since I've downloaded MW though, I enter alone and usually always bump into someone only because there's usually always someone there and hang out - CMdman  65.0 #4293 12:45PM
My favorite is to go with my daughter,but she's 16 so every once and awhile I have to go by myself. It helps restore my sanity! Lol it's nice to be able to do what I want when I want. - Mommadisneyfan  40.7 #5188 1:54PM
I went a few times alone between classes in College. But not any other time. - DSMonson_CM  320.0 #801 1:55PM
I went alone to LNO and it was a blast!! - MimiMouse  1049.0 #173 1:57PM
Going alone is cool. I ride everything by myself including the space mountain, Matterhorn, BTMRR and HM. Haven't done POTC yet. That's next. - Gadgetman  288.7 #984 2:01PM
The first time I actually went alone, I wasn't alone for very long because I met up with ONM by the wait time board! Since then, I've never actually had the chance to go alone alone because there's always MWers. - tina  1157.8 #154 2:05PM
Flying solo is great! I love to go by myself cause it's peaceful and shopping is a breeze! I like go take photos to without family in tow... - RoyannaF  377.1 #599 2:06PM
I've never gone solo either but i want to try it for a few hours.. When is the best time to go solo? - Stimpy0323  420.8 #529 2:20PM
U are never alone with mousewait, - JimW  1074.1 #170 2:32PM
Stimpy IMO mornings...serene! it! - toph  2418.2 #60 2:36PM
I've been going solo for several years. Now I go solo and end up hanging out with MouseWaiters! - DisneyPhotoFan  920.2 #199 2:43PM
I've gone solo a few times while waiting for my daughter to get off work. It feels a little weird on the rides, but I usually end up chatting with people around me. I love shopping on my own! I'm excited to actually meet up with some MWrs next time I'm in the park - TinkPen  432.7 #507 2:49PM
I would love to go alone one day but I would feel so loney :( this my first post yay haha hi MWs I'm paul - paul.r626  17.6 #7872 2:52PM
The last time I had an AP I went solo a lot. (mar 2009-mar2010). I found out from guest services that I went thru the turnstiles on 24 different days. Half those were probably solo. I blame mousewait really. Many trips were to test out the application and see it's accuracy. - Theadtraylor  48.6 #4838 3:19PM
I have never been solo, I enjoy the company of others to much and I like to talk. If I went solo I would have to talk to myself and then I would end up getting kicked out when I enjoyed the company of myself ;-) - Sam241  475.6 #448 3:21PM
All the time... Love it cause I don't feel like I need to entertain. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #87 3:32PM
All the time... Then I get to do what I want - CMsMom  446.7 #492 3:34PM
Never get to go solo. Go with the baby and my son or daughter. It's fun to share the magic with my kids but I would love to go with my 12 yr old daughter so we could ride all the "big kid" rides. We're gonna go just the 2 of us on October 1st  - sandra_d  332.1 #734 3:41PM
Once. Long before MW though! It was fun, did everything at my own pace & utilized the single-rider lines. - iFramedRogerRabbit  1957.8 #84 3:50PM
I love doing it cuz u are at ur own pace n u get to ride some of the attractions faster with the single rider entrances try it! - Penguinn_CM  188.2 #2147 3:53PM
Only while waiting for people to show up. An awkward couple of hours, but not completely un-enjoyable. :) While I've been off work, it HAS seemed like a good way to spend a day though. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 7:36PM
No also go with my hubby, daughter or grand kids. - Sonja  6978.6 #14 8:00PM
May have to for the first time this year, my husband is not a fan! - BeLiEvEr  5.4 #17511 8:02PM
I have during conventions. - E-Ticket  1466.9 #115 8:05PM
I have once or twice. I love it because I can do what I want when I want and everything goes fast. - empressvader  2.9 #56956 8:16PM
I have a bunch of times, it's not a big deal to me - mstiauna27  89.9 #3750 8:29PM
Tina, that's the same day that I went solo for yhe first time also. That was our first date. We were Big Love Wives by that night. you! - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #225 8:30PM
Always have my hubby and children. I can't imagine it without them because they are growing so fast. I know there will come a time when it is just me and hubby so I am enjoying them as long as I can! - Disneybusmama5  31.7 #5815 8:41PM
Well I may have to soon. My boys are 14 & 17 and have been dragged to DL their whole lives! They are pretty over it and only go if I make them :( we have APs so I am getting close to going alone. Hubby and I are gonna go on a date in a couple weeks do that should be fun - jerzanemama  117.7 #3268 10:52PM
welcome - Kittymeowmeow  271.1 #1150 10:53PM
I have never gone alone I would feel lonely no one to talk to. - paul.r626  17.6 #7872 10:55PM
I was inspired to do my first solo! Not bad. I went on some rides. I think it's best when the wait isn't too long, less need to make small talk! ;p I did a ton of things today that I'd never done before. Who knew? - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:22AM
I've gone twice to meet up with friends. If I ever decide go solo, i'd probably grab a churro, window shop on Main Street and take pics throught the parks.  - Mulannn  108.8 #3451 2:02AM
