Agree, but if I was already there at a conference I might go in and wander around. However, I am not much of a solo adventurer. I have to have an accomplice to have any fun.

I have been going solo for years. I'm retired, my wife is still running her business.

If she suggested it, then fair enough! Otherwise indeed!!

We did actually take our boys with us. Or rather, we would have done, then had to cancel and rebook a few months later. The younger one wasn’t an adult though, so we didn’t really consider going it alone. One day ....
Our anniversary trip was a 9 day trip without the kids, so I was probably feeling a little guilty... That was the longest trip we’d ever taken without our monsters!

Mine hasn’t done Barnstormer either! This year we are staying at BWV/Jambo. He loves our home resort, but is happy to try out new places. I’ve stayed at BWV solo, and DD and I stayed at Jambo in April. We aren’t huge Kidani fans, but I think he will really enjoy Jambo. He wants to try it because Em and I enjoyed it so much!

Go!!!!
and make a list of all the things you like but SO doesn't and treat yourself to those experiences minus the foot scuffing (DH doesn't like Living with Land, Figment, RnR, EE,(single rider lines work well here), Space Mountain, Frozen.

Mine doesn’t like ToT, Space Mountain, teacups. I don’t like for him to sit rides out while I play. He doesn’t mind, but I do. So I do those rides when he isn’t with me. That way when we are together we can do the rides that we both enjoy.

He's never been to WDW (though he grew up close to DL). I've been to WDW three times. We visit DL a couple times/year. I have been to parks alone and loved it, so going solo is no problem at all.

If you were spending three days with free time alone in Orlando, would you visit a park or two without your partner? How would your significant others feel? I'm from Washington state, so it feels impossible to turn down WDW while in Orlando ... is it selfish to visit knowing my SO is sitting on the couch at home?

Alternatives to a park: dinner at nice Disney restaurant, visiting Disney Springs, strolling the boardwalk ...

Thanks for the input!
First, I have and AP so if I was close and had free time...I would go by a park or two. But when there for business I usually have evening dinner plans with vendors or colleagues. So, that might limit to me to one night.

In one case I simply tacked on an extra night so I had a full day in EPCOT..and was my first chance to meet Tom and Robin in person where we enjoyed several Blood Red Margaritia before seeing ELO (The ORchestra now) at the Epcot ampitheatre. I then flew out the next day.

Yes my DW was jealous but she understood that I was local and it would be a waste not to go if I had the opportuity.

We'll have breakfast in a park, Epcot for example, then ride Soarin', Living with the Land, maybe one other and she's off to the pool. I'll stay behind and do/ride/go wherever. We'll meet again at dinner.
DH and I have learned to do this. His idea of vacation is sleeping in and lounging around as long as he wants, yes even at WDW. I like to get up and go do stuff at least some mornings when we are at WDW (other vacations are different). So I'll leave him resting/sleeping/whatever and bring him back a late breakfast/lunch or he'll meet me when he's ready to be on the move.
