Does any one take alone trips to the parks? I'm finally coming down for my first time and my nephew and niece want to bail on me for a day and go to the space center. I want to spend as much time in the parks as possible so I'm considering going by myself. I would be there Saturday alone. Advice or tips? Anyone for a meet up?

Do it all the time. Real sense of freedom to do what and when you want. Plus you can just sit on a bench and people watch as long as you want. You'll love it! - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #3 2:08PM
Thanks does sound great! - BagGal  242.0 #35 2:13PM

Love to people watch!! - mrsincredible  1073.4 #6 2:47PM
ooh, I love to people watch too!! - ncjal  274.2 #28 5:40PM
I've never done the parks alone & I don't know if anyone else has When are you going? - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 1:47PM
My family wants to go to the space center on Saturday. We check into our hotel this Tuesday night and start our park adventures Wednesday. - dhBelle04  281.1 #998 1:51PM
Depends on what you enjoy! Shows? Rides? Dining? If you are going alone, I'd say go to DHS or Epcot. If you like rides, RCNRC has a single rider line that moves a little quicker. You can have a beer or margarita too! It's not a bad idea if you go solo! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #19 1:52PM
Darn. I'm going in Oct. so I'm no help to you. Possibly one of the other MW'ers will chime in. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 1:54PM
Aww..why wont they go w/u?? Im sure there can be some way to negotiate.lol. Have they been there before? How old are they? Etc? If they prefer science and educational activities,theres tons of that at epcot - mickeynme  172.5 #50 1:54PM
I would totally go by myself if I had to...stay at my own pace, take lots of pics, see inside all the stores, shop for the fam, etc. I would have a ball!! :) - mrsincredible  1073.4 #6 1:56PM
True! Lol - mickeynme  172.5 #50 2:14PM
I would go by myself too! Then we wouldn't have to do our planning in the closet. ;) - BagGal  242.0 #35 2:14PM
Haha..lol - mickeynme  172.5 #50 2:25PM
Jalex239 has a lot of good tips! Going solo isn't that bad if it comes down to that - mickeynme  172.5 #50 1:57PM
I would go by myself. However i found the space center fun. - Bakerjars  250.3 #34 2:00PM
Thanks for all the tips! My niece is a cm and so she wants a little time off property and my nephew who is 25 just likes going to museums. I am a disney nerd and want to see as much as I can for my first trip. - dhBelle04  281.1 #998 2:02PM
Ooo okk..gotcha.lol..i see many ppl by themselves and they have a grand ole time. Lots to see and do and more freedom,dnt have to depend on anyone else or see what anyone else wants to go on,eat,etc..if u have any questions while ur there,just ask here on MW and i guarantee u'll have plenty of answers from these kind ppl here:-) - mickeynme  172.5 #50 2:12PM
Enjoy urself btw!!! =D - mickeynme  172.5 #50 2:13PM
I would love a day by myself to do nothing even if i dont ride the rides lol When are you going - 5disneylovers  1127.9 #5 2:20PM
My very 1st time in MK I was by myself I was 17 and had never been before (we were down there to march in the spectromagic parade) and all of my friends had gone before so they all knew what they wanted to do. Where I on the other hand wanted to see it all! Being 17 of course I felt lonely but then after I started seeing things I had a blast I was able to do anything I wanted and see things a MY own pace!! It was the best! - ccmom  187.5 #45 2:43PM
Im 18 and i LOVE to venture off to other parks while my family is up and away. I can go at my own place and i know i can count on the cast members to be my friend if i get lonely! LOL - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #99 3:00PM
I might have a day on my own during my October trip. The rest of my party has talked about going to Universal, which doesn't interest me. I don't think I'd mind a day alone at Disney! I know I would feel safe & comfortable there. And there are several other MWers who will be around, so I'm sure I can keep myself busy if it happens! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1173.8 #4 5:13PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  130.8 #2965 3:57PM
@Admin. I filled out a form for May 22nd.  I hope you got it. Thanks. - Winnie111286  6076.4 #17 2:23AM
