Ever wondered what it was like to take a day at Disneyland all by yourself?

I have come up with 3 perks for why you must add a solo trip to Disneyland to your bucket list. And guess what? They have nothing to do with any of the thrills and adventures to be found on the rides. This is a trip just for you to roam around the parks enjoying the magic.

Perk 1. Stop and Catch a Show Impromptu

One of the perks of going to a theme park alone is that you can stop and catch a show impromptu whenever you like. No need to debate with your friends over what attraction to visit next. It’s your day. In one afternoon, I was able to see the adorable Disney Newsboys and the Jazz Band in California Adventure, and the Disneyland Band on Main Street U.S.A.:

Perk 2. Catch Your Favorite Characters

Just because you are an adult visiting Disneyland on your own does not mean you can’t sneak a moment with your favorite characters. In fact, you can enjoy a rare moment without kids to make your own memories.

Perk 3. Use the PhotoPass Photographers to Get Some Great Photos

Thanks to the Photopass option at Disneyland, you do not have to worry about who will capture those magical moments for you. In fact, many of the photographers can add some pixie dust to your photos if you ask nicely enough. Pixie dust can include balloons, a character photobomb, or perhaps even a tie-fighter!

And don’t forget Your Disney Visa Character Meet-N-Greet available in different parks at different hours. At each Visa meet-n-greet, there will be a photographer who can take photos of you with the character of the day and your photo download is FREE.
