Every few weeks our writers get together and answer a Disney related question. Here is this week’s question and answers!
Question of the Week: Would you be interested in doing a Disney Park vacation by yourself for a few days? Why or why not?
Cassie – I would definitely enjoy a Disney trip by myself! I would love to go to Disney World by myself even for a few days and just explore everything I want to do. I think visiting the parks alone is awesome. I am a pretty social butterfly so I would probably try to make friends with people who were visiting and chat with people in lines. Plus, if you visit by yourself there is nobody to slow you down and you can do anything you want! The more I talk about it the more I just want to hop on a plane and go to Florida.
Andrew – I think I’d enjoy doing the parks by myself. I have a very different pace at Disney than most people and think I’d enjoy moving leisurely to anything that I’d want to do. On the other hand, going without Melissa would be sad as that has become our favorite pastime. Maybe if I could go to the parks for 3 days and then Melissa joins me for another week. That would be perfect. All that to say, I do think I’d like going to the parks by myself.
Leslie – As someone who essentially did this, yes I would go to the parks by myself. There is a different type of enjoyment from taking a solo Disney trip. Not being tied to a group frees you to make your own decisions. You are the ruler of your schedule, you want to be up for rope drop in the morning and stay until 2am? Done, no crying children who need naps, on the other hand if you’re the one who needs a nap you can dictate that however you wish. That being said I think I’d like to have company at some point. Part of the magic of Disney for me is enjoying it with people I love, be it friends or family I think a hybrid trip like Andrew’s choice would suit me best. A few days alone, then a few days with loved ones.
Melissa – If My only option was to go by myself I would, but I would much rather go with Andrew or a friend. I mean I would never pass up an excuse for Disney. But for me, one of my favorite parts about going to Disney is being able to interact with someone and get to know them better as you walk down Main Street. So I don’t think I would enjoy going by myself as much as going with someone.
