    Visit Disneyland alone?

    ok, I'm hoping this post doesn't seem stupid. Does anyone here ever go to Disneyland by themselves? I've thought about it many times before, because sometimes nobody ever wants to go. I just think it would be awkward. (Not to mention a boring car ride for an hour.) Just curious.

    I wouldn't now, living 400+ miles away. But if I needed a Disneyland fix and I lived close, I would go.

    I offen go to Disneyland by myself. I still find it very fun. For one single rider line. You don't have to worry about going on rides you don't want to go on for other people.Going by yourself is perfectly fine.

    I go by myself quite a bit.

    Of course you're always welcome to join us for Sunday meets. There is usually a small group that meets at noon at the hub. Check the calendar for details.

    I have had quite a bit of business dealings in Anaheim in the past, and I always made sure to take my AP w/me. I actually enjoy the Park on my own. I especially like just hanging out and people watching (something that the kids haven't figured out how to do yet). I have gotten funny looks from folks who are wondering why I am alone and trying to start a conversation with them :confused: I was just trying to be friendly.

    I think that my wife knows that I enjoy the Parks without her and the kids, but I'll never admit it to her. I always tell her the same thing upon my return home. "It's just not the same without you and the kids, Dear "

    Yeah, right. It isn't the same. It's better! :devil: :devil: :devil:

    I wish I could do that, and I'm only 16...but there lies the problem, if I'm gonna go to D-land, I'm gonna have to go with someone else. That someone could be my best friend (me and him did go by ourselves in August) but the problem is, he'll probably look at me crazy if I suggested we we sit down and relax for a while.

    As an AP I go with others and just as often by myself. If you love Disneyland you'll have a great time... Although it is fun to share the park, just think when you are by yourself, you can be self-indulgent. If you want to ride the train five times in a row... go ahead! Try that when you are with your friends!

    I go by myself all the time, but If I had the choice of going alone or with friends I'd definitely go with friends. I hate it when cast members give me a funny look when I tell them I only have one person in my party, it's almost as if they can't believe someone would actually go to Disneyland alone. Oh well it hasn't stopped me yet, so I guess I'll continue going alone...

    I went down there to pick up a watch from Timepieces that I had made for my wife, It had Duchess in the center done by one of the artists.
    I went and hopped on to a couple of rides, then had a Blueberry muffin and some Coffee in the hub.
    Honestly, I would rather have my wife there, we always have a great time together.
    Nothing wrong with it at all, but company is always nice, no doubt.

    When I lived in the South Bay area I would go right after work and stay till closing especially in the summertime back when the park would stay open until 1:00am on weekdays then do the same thing the next day!! It was heaven....

    I don't do it much anymore, but I used to go by myself on summer nights to watch the fireworks. I'm not much on going on rides by my lonesome, so what I would do is ride around on the train a few times during the Electrical Parade and catch some nifty views of it near Small World. Then I'd watch Fantasy in the Sky and go home.

    I did this several times a week back in the days when they used to allow you into ToonTown during the fireworks. It was unbelieveable! The pyro erupted directly overhead; you could feel the shock wave concusion through the small distance of air between your head and the exploding shells. It was such an amazing experience that I would often find similar-minded friends of mine there by Minnie's House, and suddenly I wouldn't be alone at Disneyland anymore.

    I still want to go by myself one day to see if I can do all attractions in both parks on the same day.

    Possibly on a rainy day in January. That would be fun to try.

    I went alone once for a couple of hours. I didn't go on any rides and I felt awkard eating alone. However, I enjoyed walking aorund alone. It was different, but in a good way. I also enjoyed talking to people in line when I was waiting to order my food. When I was eating I was talking on a cell phone the whole time...LOL...
