Solo travel is becoming more popular, but have you ever considered venturing solo to the theme parks? Although it may not seem like an obvious choice, tackling the theme parks on your own can be an exhilarating experience. You’ll have the chance to explore the parks at your own pace and visit all your favorite attractions. Check out our list of tips to get the most out of your solo theme park visit.
One of the best advantages of solo travel is the ability to travel light. Get in touch with your inner minimalist and ditch the giant backpack and unnecessary extras. A small lightweight bag will be all you need to carry the essentials.
Single Rider Line
Breeze through long wait times by taking advantage of the single rider lines. Although not available for all rides, you should definitely use it when offered as it will be a huge time saver.
Go at Your Own Pace
Want to do all the rides? Go for it! Prefer to take your time or just sit and people watch? Do it! Your time is all your own and you are free to enjoy the theme parks however you wish. Because of the sheer volume of things to do at the parks, you may find it helpful to create a general plan of action so you make sure not to miss anything.
Make New Friends
Just because you are traveling alone doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy conversation with others. Try striking up a conversation with the folks next to you in line. If you are a bit hesitant about talking to others, chat with theme park staff. They are always friendly and willing to share interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits with you.
Many restaurants will have a long wait but as a solo diner you may have an advantage. Don’t hesitate to take that seat at the bar! There’s no need to feel awkward about dining alone, but if you do, this is the perfect time to catch up on your daily news, upload photos to social media, or make adjustments to your plan for the rest of the day at the theme park.
Get yourself that second butterbeer, eat all the Mickey Bars, or enjoy an upgraded VIP experience. You are only paying for one person this trip so treat yourself to something special that you would normally skip.
Once again, being a party of one pays off. The best firework viewing areas get crowded quickly but you’ll be able to slip in unnoticed between the crowds and make your way to the front. Alternatively, you may choose to stake your claim early; after all, you’re calling the shots and if you want to camp out at your prime fireworks viewing spot and enjoy people watching and ice cream for a while, then do it.
Share on Social Media
Take all the selfies and photos you want – no one is judging you! Documenting your adventures on social media is a great way to share those moments with family and friends. Just remember to take time to appreciate your adventures as they happen in real time, too.
