Smile My 1st EVER solo trip! A couple questions

Hi all!

This coming weekend (9/28-10/1) is my first solo trip to the world, although 11th overall, and I was wondering if any others who have done this have any great advice or tips? I've always wanted to tour the parks solo, so I'm really psyched!

Also, I have a character lunch reservation at Tusker House on Monday, originally with a friend who can't make it. Is it weird to do a character meal by myself, or will I feel comfortable? Or, if any of you guys will be there, you're welcome to join me! Or at any other point, I always love meeting fellow Disney psyc....um....I mean, fans.

Anywho, this is my itinerary if anyone is curious:

Friday: super early flight, then heading to MK for MNSSHP (my 1st ever!)
Saturday: race packet pickup, then HS, ToT 10 Miler Race, & Villains Bash party
Sunday: sleeping in after my race and late-night party, then Epcot for Food & Wine (my 1st ever, and I realize it'll prob be pretty crowded)
Monday: AK, w/lunch @ Tusker, evening flight home

Thanks for any thoughts or tips!
