Three tips from a nerd focuses on traveling solo

Save money- You can also save money by using the single rider lines instead of buying whatever skip the line product is available. At Disney World, there are only 4 attractions that have single rider: Millennium Falcon, Expedition Everest, Test Track, Rock n Roller coaster. Universal Studios has a ton of single riders. And most other theme parks have them too. Single rider lines are usually best when the ride vehicles seat 4 or 6 to a row. Two by two roller coaster usually aren’t that good. Expedition Everest being a huge exception.

Avoid hassle- Wait less for food and drink by sitting at the bar. Toothsome’s Chocolate Emporium was my latest example. Fantastic restaurant, tough to get a seat. Bar seating was available on a Saturday night!

Have more fun- Strike up conversations in line.

If you’re like me, fun can go either way for this type of thing. Social initiations can be a lot of work and anxiety producing. So here are some things I do.

Opening line: Have you been on this yet?

If the answer is brief the conversation is over.

If the answer is enthusiastic either way, a follow up might be: Did you like it? or Have you heard anything about it?

At this point you’ve done your work for an initiation and the ball is in their court if they want to keep the conversation going.

Document the line experience. If you don’t want to talk to people, or you are socially drained: Pretend you are a theme park journalist or vlogger. It gives you something to do!
