    What is there for single adults to do at WDW?

    Hey there Scott! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for sending your question our way, and I'd be happy to assist you.

    Not all that long ago, I was a single adult and enjoyed frequent visits to Walt Disney World. One winter I was stuck in Orlando after a professional conference due to a snowstorm in the northeast and I spent an entire day by myself riding whatever attractions I wanted to ride and eating the meals I wanted to eat. It was epic! I visited all four theme parks and sampled a snack or drink from every country in EPCOT's World Showcase. The theme parks and resorts have plenty to offer guests of all ages, and I think you'll find them an ideal escape from a busy adult's everyday life. 

    If you are planning to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel (and I recommend that you do), I suggest staying at an EPCOT area resort like Disney's Yacht Club Resort or Disney's Riviera Resort. Tower Studios at Disney's Riviera Resort are designed for two or fewer travelers, making them the perfect choice for a solo adventurer. If you qualify for certain discounts, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel are also great options for adults. All of these resorts provide convenient access to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios as well as the entertainment and dining at Disney's BoardWalk.

    In terms of activities at the theme parks, there is a wide variety of options depending on what you enjoy. If you're an aspiring Jedi, then you'll want to immerse yourself in the full Star Wars experience at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Building an astromech sidekick at the Droid Depot or constructing your own lightsaber at Savi's Workshop are unique and fun for adult padawans. At EPCOT, I recommend exploring World Showcase and its culinary delights. Take your time enjoying the scenery and fauna of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at your own pace. Board a banshee and soar through the skies on Avatar - Flight of Passage. At the Magic Kingdom Park, get in touch with your inner child and experience classic Disney attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain. 

    If you're looking for some interaction while you sip, snack, or dine, there are bars and lounges throughout the parks and resorts perfect for a solo adult. Some of my favorites are: Nomad Lounge in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the Rose & Crown Pub at EPCOT, and Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney's Wilderness Lodge (just a short boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom Park). At Disney Springs, I like Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant and the BOATHOUSE Restaurant

    I hope this gives you some ideas for making the most of your getaway. As your vacation plans continue to evolve, check the Disney Parks Blog for the latest updates, and come visit us again if there is anything else we can help with. We're all ears!
