    :) DTD Marketplace will be open to 11-11:30. West side is open later and buses will pick you up at the stop next to Planet Hollywood. Jelly Rolls is a piano bar around the boardwalk. I would just take a taxi there and back. You could try the bars on the momorail loop. There is a theater in DTD and a new bowling alley place with amenities. You may not even drink...if this is your first trip you may be really tired...you can rent movies from the gift shops. You could fix a drink and hang out near the pool. If you are staying at a park resort then just go back to the park that has EMH that evening. If you do not have a Park Hopper make sure that you use that park earlier in the day--so you can just go back in the gate. If you get a Park Hopper that is one of the "perks"...if you start at MK but Epcot has EMH..then you just go there.

    Where will you be staying and maybe we can help you more?


    I completely understand where you are coming from--I usually go down to watch the movie ore check out other places when DH wants to stay at the resort.

    are you staying on Disney property?

    then any EMH while you are there - those are generally great for late nights

    the movie selection is good too - generally around one of the swimming pools at your resort.

    what do you like to do at home?

    Depending on the resort there may be things to do there. Some resorts have movies at night. MK resorts you can catch the water pageant & fireworks. Others, like Riverside, have shows (Yee Haw Bob is there). Animal Kingdom offers night vision goggles for animal viewing.

    When you check in be sure you get a schedule for the week. And remember you can resort hop, so see if you can find out what is going on at other resorts too.

    :) Well then, I would tuck him in and jump on a bus, grab a drink and Popcorn and people watch. I would love to do that for a couple of hours without DH hovering to do something else...then I would head over to a good spot to watch the parade and fireworks at my lesiure.

    I thought you might have a few trips under your belt :rolleyes1

    On Wednesday through Saturday nights, go the lounge at POP to see Yehaa Bob. I have some friends that like Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk also.

    We like to grab a drink and walk around CSR. There is always a conference being held there so the is always a lot of people watching. Walking around the grounds of the resort is relaxing.

    Another vote for yee haa bob at port Orleans. The YHB (free)show is in the bar and you will see a mixture of people. Family's,couples and singles just enjoying this very high energy show. I believe he is there until 11p or midnight. Doesn't start until 8 or 9p. JELLYROLLS piano bar at the boardwalk is a lot of fun and doesn't really start hopping until 9pm or after($12.00). If you don't want to do JR then just hang around the boardwalk and people watch. Atlantic dance (free)on the boardwalk opens at 9m. I have stayed at pop a couple of times and don't know if they have movies at night. Susan

    I have the opposite problem! My health is not so great and I often can't get up as early as DH. He amuses himself by going out for breakfast and taking walks, but there is also an electronic store in Orlando that he likes.

    This brings me to my suggestion -- if you have a car, you can go shopping! Some of the outlet malls are open until 11 pm.

    I'm really glad to find this thread. WDW will be closing early during our next trip (8 pm most nights for MK, 7 pm for the Studios) and we'll be off-site, so no extra magic hours. Calling it a night at 7 or 8 pm sounded discouraging. This is giving me some good ideas on evening entertainment!

    Last year DH went for a conference to WDW, and I went with him. For the first time, I was essentially at WDW alone. Even in the evenings he was usually doing conference activitites, so I got to be quite good at entertaining myself. We were at the Beach Club, so plenty of times I walked around the BW, sat on the beach to watch the movie. My favorite, however, were evening EMH. I'd done the rides I wanted to do during the day, so in the evening I could just walk around slowly and really pay attention to the sights, sounds, people. I could spend as much time as I wanted looking at the gift shops (even though I seldom bought). Disney is so magical at night, but so often you miss things rushing to the next ride or sitting and waiting for a parade or show. This way, I just observed or did what was easy and simple. I also revisited places that I hadn't seen since my first trip because I'd remembered it as "a waste of time". But as a single, laid-back tourer, those things showed some charms I'd missed before.

    I think my favorite on my single-tour was World Showcase at Epcot. I really got to check out the countries (and the people), and I could do so with a glass of champagne or a margarita in my hand ;)

    I would always choose to be with DH at WDW, but I really enjoyed those moments.

    I'm going solo to WDW March 6-12th for my birthday.
    I'm staying at POP.
    I'm single and DS 17 didn't want to miss so much school :rotfl2:

    I like to stay at parks until closing, and linger as ppl leave.
    Downtown disney is bustling at night.
    The Boardwalk is a fun place to go in the evenings as well.
