    I want to go WDW again but this time I was thinking by myself. I am 37 and don't have kids or a husband that I would be leaving behind. So is it crazy want to go by myself? Last time I went, I took my dad for his bday. So I feel gulity going alone. Help!

    That sounds like a great idea, Sharon! I absolutely love enjoying the parks with my children and seeing it through their eyes. But, it can also be fun to go it alone and do things exactly how and when YOU want to do them without having to consider what other family and friends want to do. You can set the pace for the day and do as much or as little as you would like. 

    Another great thing about traveling alone is that a select few rides including Test Track have single rider lines that could potentially get you on a lot quicker! On a ride like Soarin', they may need just one more person to fill a glider and you might get to skip in front of a larger party that doesn't fit that bill.  

    DIning could be another advantage, you might be able to snag a table at a restaurant without a reservation simply because of your party size. Obviously, this is not guaranteed, but it doesn't mean that it couldn't happen either. Also, several restaurants like ESPN Zone or Rainforest Cafe that have bar areas to dine in. Others like Beaches & Cream Soda Shop have a counter area where one could sit alone on a barstool next to others. In the past, my family was joined with a single diner in Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater since the "cars" you eat in have everyone facing the screen and the single diner could still enjoy his meal behind us without the uncomfortable situation of feeling like you need to engage in conversation with a total stranger (however, that might seem fine to some, too).

    So, have fun, be SAFE, and don't feel guilty. Everyone deserves a little magic!
