Other than a cabin for a couple of days all alone, I’ve never gone on vacation solo.
I’ve never been opposed to it since I’m comfortable with my own company, but it’s always nice to have a buddy along, yeah?
But recently, the opportunity presented itself for an only-me vacation, and y’all…it was the BEST THING EVER.
If you are going to vacation alone, I highly recommend…Disneyworld. *grin*
I had to be in Orlando for a work conference, and I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to spend a few days at Magic Kingdom and Epcot just because I was alone, so off I went!
I opted to do the “all in one” thing – Disney resort, food package, transportation and tickets – which made it super easy, and with the help of Uber, I was able to zip from conference hotel to “vacation” hotel in a snap!
I spent a couple of days at Magic Kingdom and one at Epcot, and y’all, it was AMAZING.
I rode whatever I wanted to ride, I ate when and what I wanted, I rested when I needed, I popped back to the hotel if I felt like it, I got a henna tattoo for the hell of it, and while I was waiting in line? I read a book.
No one made me feel like a doofus for being there alone, and I even got to line jump a few times as a single rider! Lots of folks struck up conversation with me, I had room to spread out on the rides, I requested the front seat on Space Mountain (because, uh, it’s the best, and I was a single rider!), and every employee just smiled when I said “one” to their “how many?” instead of looking at me like I was some friendless spinster. *grin*
Such a great holiday!
