How To Use The Disney Single Rider Line To Get More Rides In
Check out these super useful tips on how the single rider line can help you ride more rides at Disney World!
If you are looking for a way to hit as many rides as possible in a day, then it’s no shock that one of the first suggestions is to use the single rider line. Unfortunately, fastPasses for premium rides will be hard to come by, and right now, FastPass isn’t even available in the parks.
This means that you will need to have another trick up your sleeve to reduce your wait times and get on more rides. This is why I will show you how to use the Disney single rider line to get more rides in.
Which rides have single rider lines at Disney?
There are only a handful of riders in the Disney parks with a single rider line option. So cast members will direct a single rider to help fill in empty seats and keep popular rides running at their total capacity.
Here are the rides currently available for single rider lines:
- Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
- Test Track
- Expedition Everest (pre covid)
When should you use a Disney single rider line?
In my opinion, there are no downsides to using a single rider line at Disney World. When there are no fast passes available for the ride you want to go on, and you don’t mind splitting up your party, take advantage of the line! You can still wait with your party until it’s time to go on the ride, so there is no downside!
How long are the waits for a single rider line?
When it comes to a single rider line, the wait times will vary quite a bit. The typical rule of thumb is that they tend to be about ⅓ of the usual wait time. For rides with a single rider line, you’ll see these times posted. However, if there are line backups or technical issues, it could take longer. Most single rider lines are about 10-30 minutes, but this can go up during busy times.
How to use a this perk if you’re in a group
Riding in the single riders line is pretty easy when you’re at Disney World. There is an entrance right near the main entrance for the ride, with a clear marking labeled Single Rider. However, for Expedition Everest (when it returns), it’s off to the side of the main entrance. So all you have to do is enter as a group and take the risk. Yes, there is a chance that you will be split from your group on the ride, of course, but you could be lucky and even be put in the exact ride vehicle depending on what the situation is like when you reach the front of the line.
You can still get in all your rides and maybe even finish all of them early with this one simple trick. Sure it’s never fun to have to split up from your party, but for the few minutes you’ll be on the ride, it can be so worth it!
