Socializing at theme parks. Disney solo.

How to Socialize on Your Solo Theme Park Trip

Question of the week: How to Socialize on Your Solo Theme Park Trip?

If being alone scares you, don’t worry.

Since I started traveling to theme parks solo, I’ve noticed that I’ve become more confident in introducing myself to new people. This gives me a chance to truly be myself, since I am in my “zone.”

You may notice when you’re with your friends you’re more involved in the conversation, but when you’re alone you’re pleasantly nudged to spark up a conversation with someone waiting in an attraction line with you.

Sometimes I want to talk and sometimes I don’t.

Theme parks are my refuge…

My peace…

…my Theme Park Therapy.

It goes without saying that my solo trips to parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and more are refreshing. However, there are moments when I want to reach out to others in the park, but the introvert inside of me has to push through my own self-limiting thoughts and strike up a conversation.

Throughout my solo theme park travels, I’ve found a few little tricks for learning how to socialize on a solo theme park trip.
