Disneyland is a fun place to enjoy with your friends and family. But did you know that going alone can also be just as fun? I didn’t expect it to be as fun since i was alone but it was definitely one of my favorite times at Disney. It can be a bit daunting but if you’re a Disney parks fan, it’s something you should definitely try. So here’s how to do Disney alone.
Find the Single Rider Rides
Single Rider lines are some of the best things Disney has to offer when you’re on a solo trip. However, not all rides are single rider rides and that’s very important to note. These also differ from Disneyland to Disney World so make sure to check. If going on rides is an important thing for you, check to see if your top rides work with your schedule. I personally rode rides without single rider first and then single rider ones after. However, if you see a big ride with a low wait time, just go for it! I went on California Screamin’ 3 times in a row just by going on the regular line, surprisingly faster than the single rider one.
Discover Your Pace
One of the things I like about going alone is this. You can go with your own flow and do what you want instead of waiting on a group. It’s so easy to switch up your plan for the day because you can go with how you’re feeling. For me, I actually sat eating an ice cream float for an hour at Paradise Pier because I wanted to chill and it was great. I walked from one park to another and decided to go on rides when I wanted to. This is the biggest benefit of solo days.
Don’t Be Shy
Most people don’t want to go alone because they think they’ll feel awkward. But honestly, I found that most people won’t even realize that you’re alone. You’ll be doing a lot of walking and even in rides where there was no single rider, I would get passed up pretty fast so I never was on my own looking out of place. Plus, this gives you the opportunity to talk to people around you and cast members. I even got an I’m celebrating button out of it. So don’t think about others, just go on your own merry way.
