Walt Disney World doesn’t only have to be the most magical place on Earth for families and children. In fact, I know plenty of grown adults who love Disney just as much (if not more) than a Disney-obsessed child. It is actually a ‘Disney bucket list’ item for many Disney-obsessed adults to take a solo trip to the parks! Let’s look at some of the pros about heading to Disney solo!
YOU Get to Call All the Shots
When you head to Disney World solo, even if just for a day, that day can be all about YOU. You can arrive as early or as late as you want, and stay until close if you want. This could be a very different experience for someone who usually has to accommodate the wishes of others. There is no worry of anyone else objecting to anything and everything you want to do!
If you are a parent, you are sure to save money if you visit the parks without your children. If you have to purchase airfare or theme park tickets, you are only purchasing for one person- yourself! You can spend as little or as much as you’d like on yourself, and the only budget you have to worry about is your own.
Whether you are an intense planner or the type of person who enjoys winging it, you won’t have to go on any other schedule besides the one you choose. There will be no meltdowns and no arguments about how the day should go. If you are tired, you can leave, if you want to ride your favorite attraction over and over again, no one will stop you. You won’t even have to listen to anyone complain about lines or waiting!
You Could get Special Attention from Cast Members or Characters
For some reason, it seems like guests on a solo trip get even more attention from Cast Members and characters. Being only one person, a Cast Member might feel more compelled to sprinkle some pixie dust and grant you access to the attraction without waiting in line. Characters may spend more time interacting with you seeing that you are by yourself.
Genie + and Lightning Lane Selections
With the addition of the new Genie + and Lightning Lane systems, guests will have to pay for fast pass selections and also pay for access to certain attractions Lightning Lane (fast pass lane). If traveling solo, you will only have to pay for one Genie + per day at $15 and one Lightning Lane access to every attraction you would like to skip the line for.
It is definitely a goal of mine to spend the day solo at Disney!
