    Sad Going to the park.. alone!!

    What do you do when you go to the park alone? I have to go alone tonight because my partner in crime is grounded and I wanna watch Block Party since I'm going to the auditions on Sunday. Someone told me to pay attention to the dance they do at the very end (right at their exit after the third stop) so I'm going to go record it. I figure I'll see Fantasmic and leave after that. So what do you do alone at the park? I'm taking my ipod to keep me company of course.

    The bummer thing is I don't have a cell phone right now since my current one went through the washing machine and doesn't work.

    Are these really the Single Rider Line Rides? I didn't know Indiana was a Single Rider line! Cool!

    It is a bit quiet though...

    I did that a few times when I was at CSUF and I'd ditch the classes and spend a couple of hours at DLR before going to work in Fullerton.

    But at least it's peaceful!

    Indiana Jones doesn't have single rider any more, I don't think.

    I like to eat food, and bring my sketchbook with me and sketch people and things, when I'm by myself at the park. And I like to bring my iPod, with the original Space Mountain music on it, and play that over the new soundtrack on the attraction!

    Well boo and hiss!


    I also like to take photos there. I try to capture the details of the park, flowers, signs, statues and such. I like taking ToT photos. I have quite a photo album of Tower.

    Wow, I don't like to drown out the sounds of the park, so I wouldn't bring an iPod. (well, other than in your case Mel ).

    I go at a slower pace by myself, look around more, listen in on more conversations. Go on rides that I don't think others might want to go on or I don't get to go on a lot. Just take time to better soak it in. And relish in the free feeling!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Last night was miserable! No BPB and it rained and I was in moccasins that got soaked. I saw Aladdin at 6pm and left!

    I go on what I want to see, but I dont always relax. I'll run around the park knowing if I want to ride Buzz then go back to Pirates then to IASW I can and no one is going to complain about the running from here to there.

    I'm sorry it was not fun for you! I just think it would be fun to take my time and watch people. Sit alone and just take it all in.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I would have had alot more fun had it not rained. I used to go to the park alone when I was like 16 and first got my pass.

    Should have let us know.....had a small Micechat meet last night! Got a bit wet and the Wolfette and I left early, but heard the rest of the gang had a blast.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Re: Going to the park.. alone!!

    When my family first moved to Florida my parents bought me an annual pass to WDW (I was about 14 at the time) and my mother was working at The Magic Kingdom - so during the summer it wasn't uncommon for me to go to the parks a couple times a week (Id go in with her when she went to work, spend the day, then meet up with her when she got off). As I said, we'd just moved there so I didn't know many people so often times I went alone. I would just take my time and really explore the park - I think I saw The Walt Disney Story 30-40 times that first summer (it was a great place to escape the heat!)
