I'm going solo for the first (and maybe only) time... I don't get a chance to do late night stuff usually .. So I thought I'd check it out. I'm happily married ... Not looking for a singles scene. Have you been to and what do you think of: Jelly Rolls (is that the one with the dueling pianos?)
Kimono Karaoke
Other things I should consider?

I love Jellyrolls but find it a bit awkward to hang out solo at places like that, so maybe you can find others from the DIS to join you there? (I would but my trip is Oct. 22-Nov. 2 so I don't think we overlap, since I leave the same day you arrive.) Ditto for Yehaa Bob show.

Also the campfire singalong at Fort Wilderness is great.

Every trip I go to Jellyrolls whether solo or with friends. I'm also in a happy relationship but love to hang out at JRs. I usually sit along the bar railing and have a great time. I'll be there from Nov. 13-18 and if your dates are similar, let me know!

I've enjoyed Jellyrolls solo in the past. I've also enjoyed watching movies on the beach at one of the resorts as well as doing a progressive meal either at the MK resorts or the resorts at BW. Appetizers at one location, dinner at another and dessert at a 3rd. Kind of fun and something different.

I just got back from seeing Cirque du Soleil at DTD and it was amazing! Definitely worth an evening!

I enjoyed strolls through Downtown Disney whenever I went solo (Raglan Road or the various street performers if you can catch them). You also can't beat watching the fireworks from outside of the park such as the Beach at the Polynesian.

Also the boat ride between your resort (POFQ) and DTD is fun, evening or daytime.

Resort-hop to one of the resorts on the water (e.g., Wilderness Lodge) and watch the Electrical Water Pageant. As not everyone enjoys it as much as I do, I find it better to view when I am solo at WDW.

I go to YeeHaw Bob at POR every trip solo. I usually sit at the bar, but have shared a table with others that were already at a table with open seats.

Tell me more about this? Where did you go? Seems like this would take all night.
