Talking Halloween Party - Solo

I went back and forth on this... and finally decided to go solo to Friday Oct. 28 Halloween party.

I've been before when my daughter was little...

and wanted to see the parade and Fireworks. Any other suggestions for solo adult to do...

Kinda feel silly, but it's so hard to get work arranged and I happened to have time avail this year to go.

Embrace the silliness. Wear a costume. Trick or treat. Have fun!

Get a magic shot photo in front of haunted mansion.
Also hang out in front of haunted mansion and listen to the ghost-she's hilarious!

Watch the parade twice ---watch it from in front of the DVC kiosk at grontierland(in front of the shooting gallery) Awesome view of headless horseman from there.

Trick or treat and meet Mickey in his costume!

I got really sick a few years ago and my daughter had to go by herself. She had a great time. So as others have said, dress up, and enjoy. If you watch the parade and shows their wont be much time for anything else!

I went solo last year. No costume, but I did all the fun stuff. Parks are never quite the same alone, but they are magical nonetheless.

I went solo to the Christmas party last year. It was a highlight of the entire trip.
People watch and have a great time.

Unfortunately timing didn't work out last year or this year, but I've gone solo several times. As others have stated, enjoy the parade, the fireworks, the people-watching, and Haunted Mansion. Trick-or-treat a bit, fun to wander the trails. That will take up the duration easily.
