I just did 3 days solo in Disneyland. My cousin was late in arriving because of hurricane Sandy but, I had a blast! Even the Halloween party on Halloween! Everyone is so friendly. The CM's all talk to you. I met two 2D friends from Disboards!!! And, I ended up buying an annual pass so I could be there 3 days by myself and 5 w/my cousin. So now I'm thinking of going again in the spring by myself. After all, I already have the annual pass!!

I don't like the Turkey Legs. Tastes more like a hotdog than Thanksgiving. And when I eat turkey... it has to taste like Thanksgiving.

I've been going for 30-some-odd years since I was a kid, and I have never been on Dumbo or the Rockets, and really, don't ever plan to. I went on the tea cups once, and that was plenty.

Can you tell I don't like spinny things?

Oh, and I want to squish Figment. (Don't worry, I won't.) He drives me crazy.

ETA - Oh, and I've never seen a parade, ever, other than passing it on my way somewhere else.

I LOVE my solo trips. Friends here at home think I'm crazy. "Why would you go to WDW ALONE?!!) It seems as if I am doing one solo trip each year ... Didn't exactly plan that LOL

The one thing I've found is that I have to have plenty on deck to do. But that's a plus, since I find you end up doing attractions you like several times, and you have a lot more free time without people with you. Have a BLAST! When are you going?

I'm booked Jan 28th -Feb 4th at Pop, but thinking of doing a split stay and
moving to my fav Coronado Springs the last 3 nights.
Seriously--I haven't told my dh yet, or my best Disney travel buddy!

This is Fun

1)I wish there was an adult only resort, I love Disney, but not the noisy children

2)I enjoy solo visit

3)I do not like roller coasters

4) To me, it will always be MGM

5)I have no desire to ever stay at a value resort

6)My trips have become more for the food and less about the parks

7)I have a huge collection of Disney movies (just for me)

8)I wish the Dis had like buttons

9)I really do not like the night shows, I think they are boring

1. That would be pretty awesome...

2. We've been doing a lot of Adult Only trips lately and love being able to go at our pace.

3. Disney's a good place for you then! Not many of those, and only two legitimate ones.

4. Ditto!

5. We love the values, minus the noise, because we really only go to the rooms to sleep!

6. This too. On a recent day trip I realized as we were leaving Epcot that the only ride we'd been on the whole day was the Mexico boat ride. We had a similar day at MK recently with CBJ! Although we went back later on to do more rides because I couldn't allow that.

7. Our collection is shamefully small, actually. My parents have most of them so I assume I'll just inherit them when we have children.

8. A like button here would be amazing and probably cut down the number of needless posts by 75%

9. I like Fantasmic a lot, and love the holiday shows at Illuminations. I've always been underwhelmed by Wishes, but love the projection shows beforehand.

I used to be so scared of alien encounters that my parents would have to force me to ride it... And to this day I'm a little scared of stitch's great escape because of that

I have never had a turkey leg and I never will

My nickname for fantasyland is stroller city, and I will only go there during extra magic hours to avoid the kids.

Hey Irishman!

There's not so much a specific area of the parks that solo/singles hang out in as much as there's a big community of people here on these forums that go to Disney solo. Also, there are lists on the forums about who's-traveling-when, and plenty of folks that schedule meet-ups. Seriously, lots of folks visit solo. I go once each year for a week on my own. I certainly am about riding all the awesome rides when I'm there, but I'm also a grown man. You might really like the feel of some of the hangout-type places in Downtown Disney.

We usually end up teary eyed by the time the ride ends because we end up taking a trip down memory lane rather than paying attention to the ride.
I literally got chills when I read this! I'll look at it with new eyes when I go down next. Tearing up right now...

I actually hated Epcot when we went last trip.

Ellen's Universe of Energy really sealed the deal for me.

^ I love that ride, but I close my eyes at the spiders, I cannot deal with spiders even if they're Disney spiders. And I lean forward during the "sting" part - when I was a kid my best friend went to WDW before I did and warned me about it, and the result is that I've never experienced that part. In my mind I've built it up to be the awful painful thing lol!!

In 1999-2000, I amassed quite the pin collection. I still have them in a bag, in my closet and just haven't had the drive to put them on ebay. It's a monumental task! Since then, I've been careful to begin a collection of anything and I steer clear of even looking at the pins in the parks. I never even really traded them, I just hoarded!
