    I normally go to Disney every year with my adult daughter, next time i will be travelling alone for the first time. Anything you would suggest for lone travellers; dining/experiences etc. We have been coming for 26 years as a pair so have done lots

    It sounds like you and your daughter have a lovely tradition, Andrea. What a wonderful way to make memories together!

    I've made several solo trips to Walt Disney World and I'm happy to pass along some tips for your upcoming getaway. Let's start with an activity that might be a perfect fit. The Wilderness Backtrail Adventure allows Guests to navigate a Segway along some paved and unpaved paths. Several stops along the route give participants the chance to take fun photos that are perfect for sharing with the loved ones who didn't accompany you on the trip. Even if you've never experienced a Segway before, this tour should be on your wish list. It's an easy vehicle to operate and a lot of fun, too.

    With regard to dining, there are so many options, and just about all of them are every bit as enjoyable as a solo visitor as they would be with a group. For someone who has visited as many times as you have, I would recommend making dining reservations for at least one or two restaurants that you've never experienced before. Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot might be a tasty choice, or maybe Tiffins Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom is new to you. You might also consider taking a new approach to dinner. I suggest grabbing a taco cone from 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck and finding a spot to enjoy your quick meal at Disney Springs.

    Given the freedom you'll enjoy on this trip, I'd also encourage you to try out some brand new things in the theme parks. Did you know you can learn to draw some of Disney's most beloved characters during The Animation Experience at Conservation Station? Or maybe you'd like to learn about some of the changes coming to Epcot at the Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience attraction. Taking the time to immerse yourself in opportunities you might pass up if you were with someone else is a huge perk of traveling alone. Take full advantage, Andrea. You own your own schedule when you're traveling independently.

    No matter how you choose to tour, I'm wishing you the very best solo trip ever!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
