Going solo for first time on Sunday. Going to my first meet-up. I'm really nervous. To those of you that have enjoyed solo trips any advise.
don't be discouraged when you see people interacting like they've known each other forever, we've all been in your shoes at some point. some click with others right away and some don't. be yourself and try to have fun! and its perfectly normal if you chicken out and you are standing right next to a MWer. sometimes it takes more than 1 or maybe even 2 meetups to feel kind of comfortable. you'll be fine. - toph 2416.6 #45 1-4-13 9:26PMLike(2)Reply
We had to cancel two trips to DL last month due to family illness. My wonderful husband knew that I needed alittle get away. He suggested a solo trip. Before MW's I would never have even thought of a solo trip. Now with the encouragement of so many people, I know that I'm going to have a blast. Thank you!!!!!!! - Goofygirlie 206.3 #1804 1-5-13 9:35AMLike(2)Reply
Don't be shy, just walk up and say hi! I go solo all the time and now have gone to 4 meet ups in just over 3 months. It gets easier everytime! I might be there Sunday too! "Hi" - ShariRenee 4545.6 #19 1-4-13 9:24PMLike(1)Reply
Go in there with open arms and you'll be alright! Make sure to lather up the deodorant, wouldn't want to be known as the smelly one on mousewait. 😝👍 - AshleyLynn22 791.2 #198 1-4-13 9:58PMLike(1)Reply
Solo trips rock! Don't be overly shy. Most of us are really nice in person. Go on rides you like. - MeridasHair 346.5 #607 1-4-13 9:59PMLikeReply
I was overwhelmed on my last meet up I didn't even introduce myself to many of them because I was still a bit shy. but I got to meet a lot of great MWers, and will keep on meeting more. - nicealex77 613.7 #282 1-4-13 10:12PMLikeReply
Sneak on the tram where there is room for one more, love doing that, go through shops and look at detail. Use single riders and then at meet up walk up and smile. Someone will evsbtually introduce themselves and you'll meet everyone. Be yourself and take a deep breathe. If some are very close it's only because we've been on mw for sometime now, but like Toph said, we've all been through it, I still experience it when it's a meetup with so many that are new to app. - MarshaMouse 4073.5 #24 1-4-13 10:23PMLikeReply
YOU CAN DO IT!Remember you will be at the happiest place on earth! I faced my fears of being so shy and went solo about a month ago and did my 1st meet up! Theres no looking back from that, you will love it!Meet ups are great! Meet awesome people ...enjoy and make every moment a magical one!! Ill b there Sunday with a huge group so if you see us say hello and hope you have an awesome time!! - SweetMinnie 23.2 #6020 1-4-13 10:32PMLikeReply
Have a smile, walk up and ask if they are MouseWait? If yes, they will greet you with a smile back. If no, smile walk away and laugh but don't give up. My "first" meet up, I stood off to the back watching everyone and never walked up. I was too nervous. My second meet up I took the chance and the rest is history 😊 (ps, I still get shy and I'm normally not) - aprilinjune4 483.5 #380 1-4-13 10:44PMLikeReply
I can only speak for myself but I have loved my solo trips. I did two of them in Dec, each one was several days apiece. I loved loved loved long relaxing periods of taking in the sights, music, smells, details. Single travel allowed me to ride single rider lines, move through the park quicker or get better seats on rides or attractions. Solo experiences have given me some really really magical experiences. I hope you have the same, please keep us posted :) - MrsMears 217.1 #1659 1-4-13 10:46PMLikeReply
Went solo myself this Dec. and had a great time doing whatever I wanted! Will do it again! - Sandy 245.8 #1286 1-4-13 10:50PMLikeReply
Personally, I say going solo is just as fun as going with friends. You can really take time to enjoy yourself. Do the things you want to do: ride as many rides as you want (single rider!) or as few, take time to sit and people watch if you please. The possibilities are endless. You really notice more detail and a different kind of Disney magic when not having the "distraction" of other people with you. And dont be scared of MWers!! Everyone I have met has been so so kind and welcoming. - OneDayAlice 497.3 #374 1-5-13 6:20AMLikeReply
it'll be our first meet up too! don't be afraid to say hi :0) - OhanaPhoto 3277.5 #30 1-5-13 10:57AMLikeReply
I will be with my daughter and heading to our first meet up as well. Really nervous as I have a hard time meeting new people. But I figure what the hay. I can try. ;) See you tomorrow! - LuvsTigger 917.6 #167 1-5-13 11:00AMLikeReply
Go, and have fun! I've never been to a meetup. I wish I could go alone! Maybe i can try that some time. Hard when you don't live nearby though. - MeridaFan 3431.7 #28 1-5-13 11:14AMLikeReply
I have only been with MW for a few months (since October 2012) and my first meetup was the Birthday Bash--yes, the most popular meetup of the year (besides ChurroVonCinnamon's... lol). I felt a bit lost and uncomfortable at first but that feeling soon disappeared because I was surrounded by very kind and awesome MWers. I now have personally met over 20 MWers and after that single day I was ecstatic about going to more meetups in the future. You're going to have a great time and I can't wait to meet you tomorrow! :) - JRDrummer_CM 875.4 #181 1-5-13 11:32AMLikeReply
Solo days never last long when you have MW in your life. I always say I am gonna have a solo day and enter wait times all day but it never happens. MWers are everywhere! Enjoy your first meet up - Deltachiq 1222.6 #114 1-5-13 11:36AMLikeReply
