Has anyone ever done Epcot Solo? I’m really considering doing it in January! Festival of the Arts will be going on, and it will be a Saturday. Is it worth it? :) if you’ve done Epcot Solo, what are your favorite things to do? Thanks everyone! :)

I have many times. You can really take whatever time you need to take everything in. During Festival of the Arts, you can spend a lot of time browsing the booths, checking out all the different festival food booths, etc.
You can also take some time to have a nice meal at one of the many table service restaurants in the World Showcase.
Also, there's a Single Rider line for Test Track, which usually gets you on the ride pretty quickly.

I have done it solo a couple times. But I don't think anyone can really answer your question as to "worth". Only you can decide if its worth it to you. FWIW, the festival of the arts didn't do much for me in past years. I just felt that it paled when compared to other festival at Epcot. The times I have been to the park solo, I did the exact same things I do when my partner is there with me. There's nothing particularly different about doing solo, unless being in a group prevents you from doing stuff you would like to do

    It's kind of fun to do the impossible.

    Epcot is great solo! It is worth it.

    My favorite things to do are Spaceship Earth, Living With the Land, seeing the 360 movies, seeing the movie in France, The American Adventure and Voices of Liberty, sitting in that little out of the way area in Japan (just behind the Katsura Grill) and getting a Schofferhofer in Germany.

    There are plenty of people on the board who go to the parks solo. Any of the parks are great solo. Solo or not, when I’m in Epcot that time of year I spend time exploring the countries because for at least 6 months out of the year it’s too miserably hot to truly enjoy.

    I loved festival of the arts. There is chalk artwork to see and plenty of things to eat and drink around the world. I always try to do soarin’ and spaceship earth while I’m there, but the beauty of being solo is that you can do whatever you enjoy most.

    Absolutely! One of the best days I've ever had at WDW was solo at Epcot! I actually only went on one ride the whole day too! I like to grab a few snack while I walk around the world exploring and stopping for entertainment. If you're into character meets solo it's the best park for that too

    One of my favorite moments on my solo trip was an early morning at Epcot drinking my coffee at the tables looking over World Showcase Lagoon in the UK. I was the only person there other than a CM who eventually came by to open all the umbrellas at the tables. It was a great and relaxing way to start my Disney day.

    Epcot has so many beautiful areas to explore and enjoy solo. The last time I was there by myself I spent a long time just hanging out in the bamboo area in Japan with some sake and it was so relaxing. Definitely my favorite solo park.

    I concur with all that has been said. Some other solo things to do that might take compromise otherwise with others... impressions de france... getting a seat in the corner on a hot day kicking your shoes off. .staying at the sake bar at the back of the department store in japan for longer than usual chatting with the cast members about japan...and of course going back to the UK or mexico pavilions multiple times for beverages. No nagging voice going "again?!" 😉

    All the time. I go solo every year and stay for a couple of weeks for the F&WF. I go to all of the parks solo. WDW is a great place when you are on your own. Epcot and AK are my favorite parks and I am there the majority of the time. World Showcase has so many little details that most people miss because they rush through or are only interested in rides. Go and have fun.

    I've done almost everything (like not every tour but I have done some solo) at Disney solo at least once and it's always fun. The only slight downside is it's really hard to eat/drink around the World without friends to help you out. I don't get to try nearly as many things as I'd like to because a solo person can only eat so much.

    If its only a one day trip, I don't understand why you would even hesitate to try Epcot solo? Who cares what other people think? Just go and have fun on your own. Solo trips are truly THE BEST THING EVER!
