10 Benefits to Visiting Walt Disney World Parks Solo

6. Multi-park Magic

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Park Hopper is the way to go. As a lone explorer through the wonderful world of Disney, you have four different parks to call home for the duration of you trip. You may even consider taking half the day at one park, then the other half at another, going back to our first item on the list. If you are planning a long stay, it is highly encouraged that you visit all four of the parks and see what treasures and treats they have to offer. 

5. More Meet and Greets

Any Disney fan will tell you that one of the best parts of a Disney trip is getting to meet your favorite characters. No matter what age you are it’s always fun to have your autograph book ready to be filled with as many signatures as you can, or just to hang out and snap a photo. But sometimes multiple parties make the lines a little harder to wait through. Granted, the cast members do a fantastic job of keeping everyone happy, but having a group wait can be stressful and take up a chunk of time. If you are visiting the parks on your own and you love the Meet and Greets, go for it. You could not ask for a more opportune condition. As a single guest, the character encounters transition very smoothly and the Meet and Greets are very personal, adding to the experience. Feel free to have your cameras ready.

4. All the Time in the World


As someone who has experienced traveling both solo and with family to a Disney Park, I can honestly say that the hot-button issue when traveling in a group is time. It always seems like there’s never enough time to do everything, especially when conflicts of interests are thrown into the mix. As a solo guest, you do not have any of these problems. You have an entire day to yourself to do whatever you want in a Disney Park. Aside from shows and parades, you have no set schedule but your own. Plan your own agenda, or just play it by ear. Either way, enjoy the day.
