I have been going solo off and on since the late nineties. Stayed solo in ASMo, ASMu, PO, POP, The old DL, AKL and WLV. You'll be fine if you follow the rules of common sense. There are ALWAYS people around, and I'll bet you could tip a bellman to walk you to your room if you were nervous. (I never have, but in a resort with outside stairs, I request a room that is close to the main building and facing an area with activity. My least favorite in that regard was the old Dixie Landings - Now POR). I go a lot in January - and only make one TS adr a day, usually at lunch. In fact for this coming january, I have none, because I have great luck with these strategies. 1 - make an adr in the morning for that day, either by phone, or the concierge at your resort, or guest services in the park. 2- plan on lunch when the restaurant opens and ask at the podium if you can eat at the bar (Yak & Yeti) 3. Plan dinner when the restaurant first opens and go as a 'walk in' - the cooking place counter is good for this at Jiko 4. Plan a late lunch about 1/2 hour before the restaurant closes - I got a walk in at Tusker house last winter and had SUPER character interaction. 5. I've had some really good dinners at counter service - Sunshine food fair in the land, Tangerine in Morrocco, Mara at AKL, POP food court - and they're not burgers, either. I watch what I eat pretty closely. Some budget trips, I've eaten out of my cooler for breakfast and supper. Now I get a DVC Studio. Until you try it, you may never realize just how much 'other people' influence what you do on a daily basis. It may take you a couple days before you figure out just what it is *YOU* want to do.
