have you done it?
would you do it again?
would you do it again?
I am in the same situation most of the time. My husband is not a fan and my sisters can’t always go at the same time I can.Thanks! I joined this group specifically to pick the brains of ‘like minds’. I really want to go to WDW but no one in my life right now is interested. So I’m entertaining the idea of going solo.

I think you should go for it. I am glad I did and really enjoy my solo trips. I started out with 4 solo days and then my sisters joined me for my birthday. It was a great trip.
Not the one you asked, but I'll comment anyway. Yes and no. The solo dining experience is better because you can focus more on the restaurant's theming (for those that are themed) and on the food, some of which you might not notice as much when interacting with companions. IMHO, the solo dining experience is also not as good, because you're not conversing with others. Some people don't mind this, and others miss having company. YMMV.I guess that sounds silly. I have no problem eating out alone at home. But at WDW the eating out was such a big deal, so fun. I guess I’m wondering if the experience is as good with no one to talk about it with.
This is the one thing I’m not looking forward to on my next solo trip...some of my fondest memories of my solo trips have been the interesting people I’ve met and chatted with. It’s one reason I never get lonely when I go solo, I have all the blissful solitude I want but when I do want to socialize I can always strike up conversations.Before COVID I met many friendly families and people willing to talk to me. It’s harder now because of social distancing.
My next trip is solo but not by choice...my gf is also on the other side of the border. We are hoping things improve by fall so she can join me in October for the 50th.Visited solo twice, once for Food & Wine and once for Festival of the Holidays early December. I had a great time, so much less pressure booking everything, and blew off fast passes when I felt like relaxing instead. Next trip December 11-18 at Beach Club Villas, getting my first dose of the vaccine tomorrow morning. Hope the border is open by then, I'm on the other side. This last year has been a little crazy.
