What to Do First if You’re Afraid to Go to Disney World Alone?

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.

Tours such as:

  • Keys to the Kingdom at the Magic Kingdom
  • Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot
  • Star Wars Guided Tour at Hollywood Studios

  • Disney Day 2 – The Magic Kingdom
  • Day 3 – Epcot
  • Disney Day 4 – Hollywood Studios + Departure Day
