Solo Trip - Which Park First Day?

My flight is early in the morning & should (fingers crossed) be at the resort by around 11:30am. Was planning on checking into the resort (know the room will probably not be ready), and head over to the Disney Outlet (never been) before going to Disney Springs for a lunch reservation @ 2pm. After that, was thinking of wandering around there for awhile, then head back to the resort @ 3pm to unpack. As I have a brand new Annual Pass, was thinking of doing a park for a few hours (definitely not late as I’ll be pretty tired). Arrival is on a MNSSHP day. Which park would be a good choice?

Where is your resort?

I vote EP, but if you are going to purchase G+, then I would go to HS and stack LLs for late afternoon and early evening.

Do you have an equal amount of time at the parks on other days?

Will Animal Kingdom be open late when you’re there?

I voted Epcot because it’s got some fun things and doesn’t close freaking early like AK. I would never vote HS. Although on a weekend during F&W, HS may be a better choice.


I voted AK because you can get a lot done as a solo traveler in the late afternoon at AK. It closes the earliest, so by that time people are starting to leave. You probably won’t even need to buy Genie+. Maybe an ILL if you want to ride FOP. The last time I showed up late afternoon I was the only person in my row for the Safari. Everest was a 20 minute wait. You would miss out on most of the shows, but the trails are less peopley. It’s F&W at Epcot as you know. Therefore, very peopley.


Good point. Hadn’t thought of that.
