Disney Vacation Guide to the Single Experience

For the majority of people, when Disney World is mentioned, images of kids and families are conjured up. But Disney is a pretty awesome place to experience solo, too.

Why Disney World is great for Singles

  • You can go shopping without having to worry about someone waiting for you.
  • You’ll be able to take as much “me” time as you want at one of Disney’s luxurious spas.
  • You’re free to take as long as you like to sit and take it all in.
  • It’s much easier to hop from park to park when you don’t have a bunch of kids and their gear to drag around with you.
  • The best restaurants book up very fast but singles get the best chance of scoring a seat on a walk-in basis.
  • Run back and forth between whatever rides you want! Ride whatever rides you love the most…over and over and over.
  • For many rides you won’t have to wait as long as couples and families thanks to the single riders lane. Not all rides have this but the more pouplar ones do, like Expedition Eversest and Rock n Roller Coaster.


Epcot is definitely the more adult of the Disney theme parks and it’s an awesome place to visit alone.  The pavilions are so large with so many different restaurants, shops, attractions and things to see and do that if you’re traveling with someone else it will be almost impossible to agree on what to see and do. When you’re alone you can sit and sip coffee at Epcot‘s France Pavilion for as long as you want. You’ll be able to just get lost for hours in the places that keep your attention without worrying about holding up the rest of your group.

In one word, Disney World by yourself is completely indulgent. And wonderful.
