How to do Disney Hollywood Studios Solo

How to Do Disney’s Hollywood Studios Solo | 9 First Timer Tips

Disney Solo: Hollywood Studios Edition!

Is Disney World Hollywood Studios for solo travelers?


Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a solo theme park traveler’s must!

Hollywood Studios was once known as Disney-MGM Studios when it opened in 1989. It has always been a great half-day theme park for those visiting Walt Disney World solo; however, it is now a park that is spectacular to discover for over a whole day.

The addition of Toy Story Land and the coming addition of Star Wars Land, has made Hollywood Studios a competitive theme park.

Doing Hollywood Studios solo doesn’t have to be intimidating. Since I started traveling to Disney parks alone, I’ve noticed I’m confident meeting new people.

I’m also able to let go just a little bit of my introverted side.

The Perfect Christmas Resort Hopping Route at Walt Disney World

Did you know you could do the holidays at Disney for FREE?!? Christmas resort hopping at Walt Disney World is my new yuletide tradition. It’s a fun way to enjoy the Disney life on a budget and you’ll be able to save one of your park hopper days on your trip.

It’s something I tried for the first time a few years ago with OutdoorsyDiva and now I am totally hooked!
