Special Event with out the DH

The DH and I have done the annual pin event together for the last couple of years...
GenEARation D Event | Collections By Disney
this year he is not interested in attending but is fine with me going alone. He will join me in Disney on Saturday night.

I'm going to go as we have made friends with other attendees, but this feels kinda weird.

Have you ever done a tour or special event on your own?

Honestly, I haven't, but then again there hasn't been any event that I really wanted to attend so bad that I would go alone. However, if there were, I don't think I'd have a problem going by myself.

Thankfully, with Disney being so easy to navigate (using their transportation), it wouldn't be too much trouble go to wherever something was being held around property.

DH has even gone to some of the food demos during Epcot's Food & Wine Festival without me when I wasn't feeling good, and he didn't have trouble getting there all by himself...

I think you should go and enjoy yourself! Have fun!

I go to WDW by myself every Oct for the food and wine festival and do all kinds of events. Hubby is not interested so I go alone. I am staying 2 weeks this year by myself and I love it!

I've done lots of the Food and Wine events by myself and always have a great time! If you want to meet people it is very easy too, but if you don't feel like it there is always enough to do to occupy yourself during the event.

Hope you get to go!

Thanks for the feedback folks. DH is not attending the event, but is now thinking he will travel with me and we can do things afterwards together. This way he gets downtime.

I attended the Merry Member Mixer by myself a few years ago and I was fine alone and had a great time!

This sounds like the best option for both of you - still have each other outside of the event & you still get the event while DH gets R&R. Great way to compromise.
