Sometimes I can’t get anyone to go to WDW with me, so I go anyway. What I found is that you can’t book a lot of dining reservations for one. If I book a table for two and show up alone what happens? Should I have a moral crisis and check my moral compass before doing it?
It is fine if you book a table for two and you show up alone. There is no fee. You’re in Disney- enjoy yourself!
I travel solo quite a bit as well. Most times I will book for 2 then periodically try to modify it to 1. So far every time modifying to 1 has worked, maybe just not right away.
Whether you’re one or two, you’ll take up the same table space. Don’t worry about it.
I’ve never had a problem? What places give you difficulty (outside of the Chef Table experiences)?
Most of my trips are solo and I always make reservations for 2. The one exception is BG; because of the communal tables, booking for 2 when I know there will only be one, is potentially robbing someone else of a seat.On a few occasions I have met fellow solo travelers and have offered them the “extra” seat if they cared to join me.
A few last time I went. Define Ohana. A few others.
Solo here and LOVE it! No one else’s schedule and/or whining to deal with.
‘Ohana is a known issue - it doesn’t like solos (and sometimes odd numbered parties). Always book for 2, never had a problem there as it is a known issue. Others even if I booked for 2, I go in and modify it to 1 - ‘Ohana is the only one that never lets me modify it. But unless you are at Beaches & Cream where they might put you at the counter (which is fun!), you will be at a 2-Top (at least) anyway, so NBD if you don’t modify.
I’m not the only one! It’s weird going alone, but much better than not going at all!
First off, solo travelling at WDW is the best thing ever. I can’t imagine not going solo. Other people are just irritating.
I look at what time slots are available for a table for one and a table for two. I choose the time that’s most attractive. If I’ve booked a table for two I then change the reservation in MDE. It always lets me trade down to one person but keep the same time slot.
Interesting, I wasn’t aware of that. Good to know.
Eh, It’s only weird during certain times. Dining and “group activities” are at the top of the list, I will grant you. But for Parades, Fireworks, and scheduling, going solo cannot be beat.
Fixed. If I’m GOING with someone, they had better not be irritating. Otherwise that’s a whole other issue that needs solved.
Sometimes it seems like they just can’t help themselves though!
I can think of one person in the world — OK, maybe two — who I’d be willing to tour with. I’m a huge control freak and I flirt with being massively selfish, so it would need to be someone willing to put up with that. Such a quality is rare, I’ve found.
whaaaaaaaaaaaat? you?! NO! NEVER!
(right, so my point is: why go with them if they’re going to irritate you.)
Which is why I’ve been very happy to travel alone since Day 2 of my first trip!
Happily, when I do travel with others most of my Disney going friends like to stand around waiting for someone to make decisions. So I make decisions. Works wellif only traveling with one or two at a time. Groups of more than four though, they turn into a herd of cats and I keep losing them and wandering around trying to find them.
To clarify, I have never had a problem with service at 'Ohana being solo.
The issue I referred to is in the booking. The booking system has a glitch that does not look for solo tables - and sometimes odd-numbered parties.
Explains why I couldn’t get it when I tried in December.
