WDW Solo is a completely different experience. For me, I tend to notice more. Spend more time enjoying the music and smelling the flowers so to speak without the distraction of family or friends. My first solo was an accident and now I am hooked. My first solo was 12 days ( away to long unless you plan on meeting up with friends) I leave next week for 11 days BUT I will be meeting up with friends throughout my trip. Friends, who I in fact met on previous solo trips that to me is the best of both worlds. I did feel a little weird on the first trip. But I got over it really quick as soon as I realized you are never truly alone in WDW. Counter service or Table- depends on what I am in the mood for. I will say this I get EXCELLENT service when dining solo. I have had some wonderful conversations with cast members on solo trips I love photo pass! And have used it every solo trip. Why should memories be preserved for groups only? I have stayed at both ends. I love pop. But during Food & Wine the closer to Epcot the better! Just depends on what I can afford. I hope you go and have an amazing solo adventure! You never know who you might meet, or what you may see for the first time.
