Have you ever taken a vacation with family, arrived at a theme park, and waited even more for your party to arrive knowing that you were missing out on precious ride time? Planning a solo vacation may sound depressing, however, it comes with many advantages. Here is a list of some of the perks of going solo:
Save money! One of the best perks of planning a solo vacation is that you can save money! You can have the freedom of going and experiencing what you want on a lower budget.
Travel to your destination at your pace. You won’t have to worry about layovers affecting your party because it’ll just be you. If you are driving yourself, you could even drive all night (responsibly).
Being able to ride all of the rides! Or however many you want at least. Sometimes nature calls for someone in your party and you have to leave the line with them or you may be with a party with a lot of energy to spend and want to slow down and enjoy the sights. When going solo, you can enjoy a vacation at your own pace.
Park Hopping anyone? Visiting Walt Disney World or the Universal Studios Resorts is a great experience and you may want to experience as much as possible by buying a Park Hopper ticket and hitting up all four parks at Disney or the two in Universal. You may consider it a challenge and post a video about it on social media.
Theme Park Vlogging. Going solo gives you the chance to cover more ground while at the theme parks and create a video blog of your experience to share with family and friends.
Live a little? A trip with a party can certainly rake up the expenses, but what if it’s just you? We’ve all been on vacations where we’ve had to go a little cheaper on the package than we would have liked. Going solo gives you a little more leeway. First-class plane tickets? Maybe. A stay at one of the newer hotels? Why not? A few more souvenirs? It’s just you anyway.
Planning a solo vacation can give you some peace of mind from the day-to-day hassles of work. You may be able to take a weekend vacation and be back by Monday or maybe even take a few extra days to give yourself that much-needed break. Just know that you will be creating memories that will last a lifetime!
