Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney Living and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the second stop aboard Magical Blogorail. Enjoy the ride as we share the perfect solo trip to Disney.
My perfect solo trip.
At first, I had a bit of trouble with this concept. I’ve done Disney alone. And though I love it, I do find that I much prefer exploring with an excited companion. (Of course, I’d rather tour alone than with a miserable companion …)
So I just sat down and thought thought thought about what I’d do if, right now, I was suddenly in Disney without a traveling companion … and if, by magic, all of my Florida friends and family were unavailable to join me in the Parks.
Since this is my story, I want to wake up in Bay Lake Tower in a Deluxe Studio with a Lake View. I don’t know how I got there or when … but this is my perfect trip, so I am just there. Like magic.
I wake up on my own, with no alarm., get ready and hit Contempo Cafe for a chocolate soy milk and oatmeal before walking over to the Magic Kingdom just in time for the Morning Show. I’m able to stroll down Main Street, popping into the Emporium for a look at the new merch and then into Starbucks for an unsweetened iced tea.
I spend the morning exploring Frontierland, then ride the Haunted Mansion and Peter Pan before wandering through Storybook Circus and meeting up with the train back to Main Street, where I’ll catch a showing of Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It as it parades down the street, following it as it goes toward the Hub.
Then onto Tomorrowland. People will be moved. And Atros will be orbited. And more exploring will be done. When I’m tired and hungry, I’ll hit Sleepy Hollow for a waffle sandwich, which I’ll eat in the Hub, looking up at the Castle (which will mercifully NOT have a show happening in front of it).
After lunch, I’ll wander out slowly, people watching. And head over to Wilderness Lodge to relax for a few hours on a balcony overlooking the pool. Maybe a dip in the pool. Maybe head back to BLT for a nap or just to relax in the Contemporary.
Dinner will be either at Territory Lounge or The Wave before heading back into MK to watch MSEP and Wishes from the Main Street train platform. Then I monorail back to the Contemporary, grabbing a cocktail at the Outer Rim before ambling to bed.
Day Two and Beyond
And I wake up in a Boardwalk View room at the Boardwalk Inn and Villas … what? This is my perfect solo trip! And it has spontaneous travel!
I think this second day I’ll walk over to Hollywood Studios with lunch at Swolphin and absolutely Fantasmic!
Day three, I’m still at Boardwalk. I sleep in late and spend the afternoon wandering the World Showcase–that’s one of my all-time favorite ways to spend a solo day in the World. Snacking my way around the place, I end the night with IllumiNations.
Day four. Another sleep in day. Magically, I’ve been transported to Old Key West. I spend the middle of the day in Epcot’s Future World and shopping in Mouse Gears, heading back to the resort early for a swim, a big dinner at Olivia’s and a campfire.
I wake up bright and early on day five and head to Animal Kingdom, taking a nice, long mid-day break in the air conditioning at Yak and Yeti so I can last the whole day … because this is my perfect vacation, and DAK is open after dark! When I’m done reveling in the awesome, I head over to Kidani Village for some Chai Cream at Sanna before crashing in my room near Community Hall.
Day six is another slow morning. In the afternoon, I’ll bus over to DTD and spend the afternoon riding boats to the area resorts and exploring a bit. Then it’s (solo) date night in Downtown Disney … I love to wander there at night. Not sure where I’ll have dinner, and afterward, I’m not sure where I’m bedding down for the night …
I mean, I could do this forever: hop from resort to resort, Park to Park. THAT would be the perfect solo life!
