I have spent a lot of time in Disney World.

5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World

It is one of my favorite places in the world…I visited several times a year as an adult BEFORE kids and have visited many times since. I like to consider myself a bit of an expert because I spent hours upon hours planning out each detail of every trip down to the minute. Then there is the minor fact that in front of the castle, amidst the fireworks is where my husband proposed. Needless to say it’s a special place for me. Every time I’m in Orlando, I try to make a visit because Disney World is ground zero for me in a lot of ways.

5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World

Since I was in Orlando for my 4th BlogHer Conference, I took the time to schedule an extra day in Orlando so I could spend some solo time in Disney. I knew that I would be traveling solo, so I was so excited to get a media pass from Disney to check out the parks. There are many reasons why I LOVE going to Disney by myself and why I think everyone should try it:

5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World

  1. Go With the Flow: Often times when planning a Disney World trip with kids you often plan around the rides and experiences that they might like the most. For example: My eldest child loves Beauty & The Beast in ALL formats, so we always make sure to get a FastPass for the live show in Hollywood Studios. When you are solo however, you can go wherever your heart leads you. Want to do the Hall of Presidents ride? Go crazy! It’s a Small World is your jam? Go nuts! The best part is that you don’t have anyone asking you do anything, you can go with your heart and let your spirit guide you. 🙂5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World
  2. Easier access to rides: You can finally take advantage of the single rider lines, and trust me they move fast! The thing about getting on the rides is that it really doesn’t matter who you are sitting next to because you are too busy enjoying the attraction to chat with your neighbor!5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World
  3. Eat Whatever You Want: No really. We all know that Disney has some of the best theme park restaurants in the world, so when you are alone, you can decide what you love to eat. For me my favorite over the counter restaurant is Cosmic Rays in Magic Kingdom, so I headed straight there for lunch! There are a ton of places to choose from throughout the parks so whatever type of cuisine you wanted you can easily get to. Plus it is way easier to get a last minute reservation at a popular restaurant as a solo guest. 5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World
  4. Park Hop Easily: I always start at Magic Kingdom because that place means the world to me, but I let my mood guide me when I’m ready to move on to another park. This time I went over to Hollywood Studios because my favorite ride (on the planet) is the Rock N Roller Coaster. I managed to grab a same day fast pass, and waited maybe 7 minutes to get on the ride. It was just as awesome as I remembered it! I spent a few more hours in Hollywood studios browsing the shops and just relaxing. 5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World
  5. Rest when you are ready: I never know how the day is going to treat me, I could get exhausted really quickly or the summer sun can yank the energy out of me–the best thing about traveling solo is that you can simply take a rest on a bench, or even go back to your room for a nap before returning. You don’t have the feeling of trying to fit it all in to accommodate everyone you came with.5 Simple Reasons Why You Should Take A Solo Trip To Disney World

I will be at Disney in three days now and seriously might be more excited than my kids! But I didn’t have any time planned to go solo to the parks, but after reading your advice may just have to now!! 🙂

Hmmm I think I can do this. I am trying to plan a Disney Cruise as I speak so I can’t wait….I want to go by myself but I guess I will bring the kids they say you can actually be on the cruise alone because there are so many activities for kids that it’s like you are by yourself

You make incredible points. I love Disney. You know that! That said, I’m one of five kids. I’ve only ever been to Disney with siblings as a kid/young adult or as a parent. I wish I had gone during those in-between times when I could do anything I want at my pace. My pace is.. fast/slow/varying.
I need to do this one day.

I recently did my own post on solo trips to Disney, and I loved reading your perspective! For me, I was intimidated at first, but then like you I started to see the benefits of travelling solo. Thanks for tips (my husband also proposed at Disney, but on the Soarin’ ride).

Solo travel certainly has its perks sometimes! I do enjoy being able to just do my own thing, whatever/whenever I feel like, when I travel. It does sound like Disney is a special place for you! In all honesty, I’m not a big Disney person, but the few times I’ve been there as an adult, I try to embrace my inner child & just enjoy it.
