10 Benefits to Visiting Walt Disney World Parks Solo

3. Single Rider Sweetness

The only thing better than being a single guest at a Disney Park is being a single rider. The single rider line moves faster than you would imagine, occasionally even cutting one’s weight time in half. Even on rides like Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, and even Test Track.

On my previous venture to Epcot, through use of the single rider’s line, I was able to beat the Fast-Pass users to a spot, a front seat mind you, on Test Track. Though the queue timer read a wait time of 40 minutes, my wait was barely half that. Single riding is the way to go, even if you are with a small group. You will get to ride sooner if you remain in the single spots.

2. Be Your Own Guide

This is for those hardcore Disney or theme park fans. If you are going to a Disney Park on your own, be your own guide. Have breakfast and a cup of coffee before you leave your hotel and just take on the day. Grab a map if you need it, but I recommend just taking a day to just flat out explore the parks. Aside from hitting the most popular rides and attractions first, don’t try to schedule yourself.

It’s impossible to do everything all at once, so don’t try to cram everything in one day. Feel free to wander and try new experiences, visit attractions you don’t have on your list, see different shows, and make many memories.

1. It’s All Yours

Simply put: It’s your trip. This is something incredibly magical you get all to yourself. You get every rush of adrenaline from your favorite rides, every sweet treat from Dole Whips to Mickey Bars, every spellbinding show, and every enchanting Character Meet and Greet. You have your choice of three parks and so many different ways to play it boggles the mind.

You don’t have to come to an arrangement with other party members, do any over-complicated advanced planning, or argue about where to go, what to do, or how to get there. Visiting a park solo means having your own unique experience, and it is a trip every fan should try.
