I've gone alone twice and would do it again but Hubby insists on coming LOL

I loved it alone, I mainly hit WDW though. I did take the bus a few times to go shopping and took a taxi to Universal. I loved every bit of my solo trips. I didn't get lonely at all, the CM's were so nice and will actually talk to you a lot more when you are solo, I pin traded with heaps of people and made some nice dinner friends too.

I'd do it in a heartbeat!! It's one of the friendliest place I've ever visited so if you want to spark up a conversation you'll never be short of someone to talk to.

And, think of all the time you'll save using the single-rider lines!!

Single riders lines... Yeah! Been there, done that, solo!

You can also select the rides that really interest you. In fact if you are not planning that trip in summer or during the holidays then you could even do both Universal parks in the same day and everywhere CM, employees, whatever will be more chatty at those times. In fact a learned a lot from a few CM at Animal Kingdom that were feedin some animals.

If my husband didn't want to go then neither would I - I would hate to go without him

Don't want to sound sanctimonious but Isn't that what being married is all about - doing things together :-))

I love having my family with me, but there have been times that we have gone without my hubby and he has gone on trips without us, for ex. elk hunting trip in Utah, Marti Gras with co-workers. To each their own. I definitely do not want to go elk hunting or to Marti Gras!

Haven't gone alone though, guess there is always someone wanting to go.

One of my friends goes alone a lot just because she is always gone on business trips and she is there so why not take advantage of it.
