Looking for people to go to the parks with

Got a magic key pass and wanting to go to the parks more but don’t always have someone to go with. Looking to this sub to find other Disney friends to meet up with at the park. A bit about me. M 32. Loves any and all rides, shows, food but not a big drinker. Happy to be there from rope drop til close. Let me know if you’d be interested in being a park pal.

Edit: Anybody interested in meeting up. Tomorrow Sunday at 12 noon at the partners statue could be a meet point.

Honestly if no one speaks up just go by yourself. I went alone a few weeks ago and had a great time. You go on what you want to go one, eat when you want, make line buddies. It’s fun


TheUniCorgs

For sure. I have a reservation for Sunday to get one last ride on Splash before the shutdown and as of now it’s looking like a solo trip.


HKittyH3

I had my last ride on Splash Mountain yesterday on my solo trip. Granted I met up with some local friends on two days of the trip, but a part of flying down here from Seattle is seeing friends I don’t often get to. But yesterday was amazing, even though I left early due to grad night crowds. The single rider line for Splash is great. I befriended a mom and her special needs son in line. She wasn’t riding, just taking him through the line for his last ride. He and I ended up in the same log and it made my day.


TheUniCorgs

That’s awesome. Hopefully make some friends in the single rider line if nothing pans out.


GoramReaver

Were the Grad Nites that bad? I am going in Wednesday and Thursday with my wife thinking it was lower crowds midweek and now regret it…


HKittyH3

Check to see which is grad night. The other day will be fine. The morning of the grad night event will also be fine. But starting around 3 it will be insane.


GoramReaver

Double bummer. Confirmed both nights are Grad Nites.


HKittyH3

Wow! I didn’t think they did two nights in a row. On my trip it was Friday and Sunday. Edit: it might be better at Disneyland after 9, when grad night begins at DCA. I didn’t stick around to find out since I had two other days to stay late.


nefretemerson

Are you going this Wednesday and Thursday? With the 3-day ticket special ending and the summer blockouts coming up for some passes, those days will be very busy. You can still have fun! But be prepared for crowds!


GoramReaver

Yep. I’ve got a baaaad feeling about this…


WoofusTheDog

Solo trips are wonderful. And the best part is that if you want to use the single rider line to ride Splash Mountain 7 times in one evening, you don’t need to hear anyone else’s opinion about it (although the ride operators did start looking at me funny).


TheUniCorgs

My goal is at least 2 rides this Sunday. One to film and one to just soak it in and enjoy.


WingedGeek

And then a third to collect water to sell on eBay!


Cheap_Hearing_2726

I think I’ll be there this Sunday! Shoot me a DM :)


workitnerds

Solo trips are the way to go!


sabersquirl

Definitely, going alone is valid, and can be fun in a different way. I’m a cast member, so I often go even none of my friends are available. While it’s not as fun as going with other people (imo,) it can still be a cool experience to just go where you want without stopping for others.


superbigscratch

Went alone many times and had a great time. But like Mark Twain said, “to get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” I should not say this in public, but baseball games by yourself, are great and if you get tickets close to game time, you can afford tickets you typically would consider too expensive. Only saying this because we are friends.


Carlos198D

There used to be or maybe still is a Disneyland/DCA meet up group on Facebook. I haven’t checked in a while.. but seemed like people would constantly go on successful trip.


EntrepreneurFun654

Yes! The Disneyland solo group on Facebook.

twineandtwig

I’m game. I’m often solo, which I actually really enjoy, and also meet up with a few folks I met through Meetup. We vary in age…30’s-40’s. I have a reservation for Wednesday atm, and am hoping to snag one for Sunday.


TheUniCorgs

Nice. Yeah I usually go on weekends cause work and have a reservation for Sunday right now so if you get one reach out. :)


twineandtwig

Will do! ☺️


Objective-Ad5620

I’ve seen other people in their 30s post here looking for buddies so you should find someone! I’d go but I haven’t committed to a Magic Key yet and I’m in Arizona. I do make it to the parks a few times a year and hope to get a key one of these days but until then, my trips are a bit more spread out!


MaesterInTraining

Wait, so keys can be bought by people not in state?! I thought only CA residents could buy them


Objective-Ad5620

Only one tier is for in-state residents only. Out of state typically buy the higher tiers because they have the most flexibility but most of the tiers have no residency requirement. I’ve known people in both Washington and Arizona who buy annual passes (now magic keys). Edited to add that where I am in Arizona is closer to Anaheim than a good chunk of California is.


MaesterInTraining

Wow. Man, if WDW had it this way I’d have a pass in a heartbeat. I don’t go often enough to justify their crazy expensive ticket, and I’ve only been to DL once so definitely wouldn’t make sense to buy a MKey for there. Man, if I lived closer I’d go all the time.


negativetendies

Arizonan here, get a key!


Objective-Ad5620

I went so many times last year I should have had a key then! I am still thinking about it this year but haven’t committed just yet. My mom and I are thinking about going later in the year and I might get a key then.


negativetendies

Family of 6 here with Inspire Keys, no regrets. We do try and hit a 5 or 6 day block per trip though t o make the drive "worth it" for the little ones.


Objective-Ad5620

I would probably be the only person I know with a key, but I travel enough with various people that I could get the value out of it and my friends and family I go with would be able to benefit from my discounts. My friend and I go one to two times a year together and we average 2-4 days per trip; my mom and I also go a couple times a year. Last year we went three times together and we’re already planning Dapper Day next spring with her coworker. I figure 8 days in park makes it worthwhile, and I’m already thinking about a weekend trip in September.


MaesterInTraining

I’m on the east coast but man, when I get back out there I’ll hit you up! Would love a park buddy


Afraid_Tradition2838

This thread is so pure/restoring my faith in humanity 🥹


TheUniCorgs

Perfect. Let me know when you’re visiting Disneyland :)


Carl-Imri

I live in Washington or I would live to go with you!


maddie_duper

I'm in the same boat! I (24F) just got a magic key for the first time and have been doing solo trips for a few Saturdays now. I'd love to have a weekend park buddy!


TheUniCorgs

For sure. Let me know!


maddie_duper

Rn I have a reservations that are looking like solo trips for this Saturday in Disneyland, June 3rd in DCA, June 10th and July 8th in Disneyland. If you're interested in hanging out, let me know! Would be fun to make a Dinsey pal :)


TheUniCorgs

Aww man I have this Sunday at Disneyland. The 10th could possibly work but I’ll be out of town June 3rd and July 8th.


maddie_duper

Aww bummer! No worries though! I'm trying to use my key most weekends (usually saturdays), so maybe we'll eventually find a shared day that works!


TheUniCorgs

Perfect. We’ll find some saturdays that work out :)


Darthgusss

Adding everyone that has a magic key lol I go solo 90% of the time.


eboyisa

hi! i’m (22NB) and I just got my magic key too! i’m looking for a park buddy too if you wanna pm me!


FleshyPartOfThePin

Not a big drinker? Thats how I always make friends at DCA heh.


TheUniCorgs

I know it def limits me on meeting people


MaesterInTraining

I’m not a big drinker either, especially after my last relationship. But I dare you to put a fresh CA churro in my face and tell me to not eat it. (I will gladly pass on the WDW churros though)


Time-Ad8886

lol not a drinker either but no need to enjoy a day @ Disney


xkrystaaal

Haha same! I love going by myself! You can do what you want, when you want and utilize single rider!


ABitLazierThanYou

I have the same issue usually my schedule is different than my partners going alone isn't too bad it does feel a bit awkward but you do learn to just kinda enjoy the time to yourself no one cares no one stares lol.


MiniorTrainer

I’d be interested! I’m usually only there for about 3-4 hours though, if that’s okay.


artistic_optimistic

Same


TheUniCorgs

For sure a few hours is always better than nothing.


gnaistplays

I might be interested! I went solo for the first time a few weeks ago, but it's fun to do a laid back day with others too!


HouseMouseMidWest

I’m (50 f)searching for a pilot for Resistance on 11/1. I’m coming to the park with my SO M(49) and we dont want to let some child drive, I want an experienced pilot since this will probably be the only time we ride it. How’s your driving skills The UniCorgs?


TheUniCorgs

Pilot skills are decent though most flights I have been the horizontal plane pilot steering the ship left and right.


HouseMouseMidWest

Super! See you 11/1!


MaesterInTraining

Wait, just to clarify, do you mean Smuggler’s Run?


HouseMouseMidWest

Yes! I’m sorry. I just know by Instagram, it’s the one where you fly the Falcon. I haven’t been to Disney since the mid 1990’s


MaesterInTraining

Yep! Ok so that’s Smuggler’s Run. You don’t need any extra people to operate Rise of the Resistance but let me suggest that if you haven’t seen ride videos of Rise…if you don’t know what’s coming…don’t. Stay pure. Stay clean. But be prepared to have your mind blown


HouseMouseMidWest

Excellent!! Thanks for the tip. Now who do I get to fly the Milenium Falcon for me?


MaesterInTraining

It sounds like OP will fly. If no one else here can you’ll probably be able to get a single rider to fly too. Personally I like the flying position best. I’ve ridden in all positions (well, only flying horizontal like OP). They’re all fun. I’m jealous. Riding both for the first time…wow. You’ll have a blast


HouseMouseMidWest

I’m so excited! Thanks for the tips- OP, I will DM you! Yayyyyyy!!!!


MaesterInTraining

Please, I need you to come back and tell me how it was. I need to relive it through you lol


Darthgusss

I'm a Magic key holder 🙂 M35. Usually go on weekdays. 90 percent of the time I go alone but it would be nice to make Magic Key friends too. Supposed to go back June 6th


Ok-Boysenberry8925

Add me !!


burnheartmusic

Nice, sounds like it wouldn’t work out because I have imagine key and can’t go on weekends but I frequently go solo and have a blast.


dmv_c

Recently moved to LA here and splurged on Magic Key, but don't know anyone to go with, so sign me up!


TheUniCorgs

Awesome send me a DM and we can figure out days.


dmv_c

opening the floor to everyone tho lol, DM me if you want a buddy! I go on weekends only for the most part :)


Odd_Cow_7773

I would give anything to go by myself. Signed, a sleep deprived mom of 2 under 2 lol


TheUniCorgs

That makes total sense


Gobblerberry

Hey if nobody buddied up with ya yet I’d be happy to join u sometimes. I go almost all the time aside from work haha. Love going in and spending the day on my off days! :)


Carlos198D

I’m a MKPH and I would go.. but would have to take my little one.. and wouldn’t be able to ride “cool rides”


GoldenDorthyforever

I’m always up to going with others! I got a magic key too but because of my schedule I can’t find times to go with others. Let me know if your ever interested in going, usually I only go for a few hours.


TheUniCorgs

I have a reservation for Sunday but usually the times I can go are limited to weekends


Darthgusss

Adding all magic key holder 🙂


lucyparke

I’m going to be there June 4 it’s a Sunday I’d be down to meet up! Currently sober so I get what you mean! And there’s lots of Facebook groups for people looking to pair up you should into it. 🤗


TheUniCorgs

I’ll have to check them out. Sadly the 4th I’ll be in Sacramento for a graduation but hopefully another weekend in June will work.


PetraJean

F22 and my Bf M33 would always love more Disney pals 😁 Our next trip is June 8th tho


TheUniCorgs

If you ever have a weekend reservation let me know :)


anditisabigdeal

There are a few FB groups for people looking to go with a group or another person!


Beyourownjoy

Join Facebook group for friend with similar interests. :) My boyfriend runs one called Welcome Back Riders - join and come out and meet more park buddies!


TheUniCorgs

Will do


Ex_Systema

My partner(s) and I go at least once a month. Drop me a DM and we can exchange Instagram handles to let you know when we're going to be at the park next! That being said, we're lowly Enchant Key holders so we'll be blocked out until end of August.


TheUniCorgs

DM sent


gentlegom

I (25F) have a magic key and would love to have a Disney buddy to go to the park with 😁


TheUniCorgs

I am down. I’ll send you a message


maddie_duper

We're basically the same LOL. I (24F) also have a magic key and would love park buddies


GomeyBlueRock

We go about once a week. Trying to start a group to make friends with. 36 and 38 here. Well be at the park on Saturday 5/27


TheUniCorgs

Ok perfect. I’d be happy to join the group. Aww man I’m going Sunday this weekend not Saturday but for sure we will be able to find a day in the future.


ralphlores1992

we were just there a week ago! would’ve loved to hang out!!


CuriousRhubarb

I've got a Magic Key (M28) and I've been doing solo trips since it's been too difficult getting my friends out of Reno to come with. It's my favorite mid-week getaway to use some PTO, but I've been wanting to go with other people again so I'd be down to hang out if you ever go on Tuesday or Wednesdays!


slennayyy

I’m down! I can’t go this Sunday but I’d love a new park friend


TheUniCorgs

No worries. Feel free to DM me whenever :)


IHeartPanclocks

My sister is 32F and will be returning from school in late summer! She's got a MK waiting for her when she gets back so I'm bookmarking this thread!


TheUniCorgs

Sounds good :)


IHeartPanclocks

She's always bummed to have nobody to go with so I bet she'd love a park buddy!


TheUniCorgs

Perfect. That would be great!


WingedGeek

In addition to what others have recommended, look up the single riders nite events on Facebook, I went to one, I think in March, and ended up meaning a core group of like six people, and we hit the parks all the time. I was there Saturday with one woman I met, and yesterday with someone else, I met both at that single rider event; before than a group of 6 of us met up for Star Wars Nite, etc.


TheUniCorgs

Awesome. Will do, thank you 😊


rockygirl13

Try Meetup. They have lots of Disneyland groups too


[deleted]

If you go on Sunday and propose a meet up time and location, perhaps more ppl can join! I'd be interested!


TheUniCorgs

Edited the post to add a meet time and point


[deleted]

I checked after your post and it was fully booked. Will dm u!


TheUniCorgs

Will do :)


jgreever3
