New Update for Disney World’s Single Rider Line

New Update for Disney World’s Single Rider Line

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

The Single Rider line gives Guests flying solo the opportunity to fill in all available spots on rides and cut down on time spent waiting in line. Unfortunately, it has not been available due to the pandemic. However, we do have a new update to share!

Several attractions at Disney World offer Single Rider Lines. It is a special line for those who are traveling solo or don’t mind splitting up with the rest of their party. Basically they get squeezed in wherever there is a seat available. Typically, the line is much shorter than the regular standby queue, which means less waiting around in line!

Only 4 attractions in all of Disney World offer this benefit.

Epcot: Test Track

Hollywood Studios: Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest

Suspension and Return

Due to the nature of the Single Rider Line, strangers may sit next to each other which has been a big no-no in the last year. When the parks reopened, this benefit was suspended. However, as we have seen in the past few weeks, Disney is intent on bringing back the normalcy.

Guests are now being loaded to full capacity on many attractions, and plexiglass dividers are removed for the most part. This set the stage for the return of Single Rider Line.

Now, Single Rider Lines are returning! This is great news for those of you who don’t mind who you sit next to on rides. With summer crowds in Central Florida, wait times are definitely getting longer.

Will FastPass return soon?

With another queue option returning, we are all looking for a FastPass announcement. It makes sense that they have waited to bring it back until after plexiglass dividers were gone because those were not installed in FastPass queues.

We have seen “standby wait times” now listed on the app along with some more clues FastPass may be returning soon. I do not think it will be free – check out why I think that right HERE.

That was my question too, very vague.

Is this something being offered right now or announced for in the future?
