How to do Disney Hollywood Studios Solo

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

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 Complete Beginners Guide to Doing Disney Solo | 11 Pro Tips to Get You Started

Do you want to go to Disney solo?

Or perhaps the idea seems a bit too far fetch???

Since I started traveling to theme parks alone, 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.”

The Disney parks are suited for solo adult travelers.

It goes without saying that my trips to Walt Disney World are more are refreshing when I am visiting unaccompanied. Don’t get me wrong, 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.

If this sounds like you, then I recommend scheduling a tour on one of the first few days of your trip. This is a good way to break the ice on your solo theme park vacation and you never know what adventures may happen afterwards.

I know you’re probably thinking this has got to be the oddest idea but trust me, you can do it!

There’s a way to do Disney solo without thinking it’s weird….

…that’s if you know what to do.
