    Going on your own will be great fun! There's so much to do, so much to see and experience that you'll be occupied on that.
    have a magical time!

    I couldn't agree more as to a better place !!!

    As for flight try to take magazine, books and entertainment etc for you to make time go by as fast as possible.

    Before I moved to Orlando, I did several solo trips to WDW. I enjoy them, because I can do things at my own pace

    That is exactly why I am going on my own. I like to do things at my own pace and whenever I like. Plus if I went with a friend I may just end up falling out with them before the 2 weeks are out. Too independent

    I have some tips:
    Like other users said, bring books/magazines to help time pass by on the flight.
    You might want to do single rider because the lines can be really long.
    You could get Fast Passes to make your wait even shorter.
    You might not want to go on It's a small World, the theme song gets drilled into your mind!
    Have a magical time!!!!!!

    single rider I am assuming that is a line for people going on a ride by themselves which is also used at Alton towers?? and I am planning on fast passing the popular rides although I am sure that being in the resort for 2 weeks I will at least get on the majority if not all the rides. Haha! It's a small world I will avoid the song is already drilled in my head

    Yes, single rider is a line where you can go on some popular rides by yourself, such as Rock N' Rollercoaster or Expedition Everest.

    That's correct. At the moment, the single rider lines are for RnRC, Everest, and Test Track (when it reopens).

    Every ride is personal preference, of course. However...I love Everest! I've riden it 7 times in a row before (all via Single Rider).

    I can see going on rides and shopping (especially shopping!) when you're on your own, but wouldn't meals be lonely? Would you get a table for one in a nice restaurant?

    That's the only downfall Alice but I couldn't see myself eating big meals as I only eat little and I don't think being in a restaurant every other day or so will look a bit too weird on my own lol
