Disney Removes the Single Rider Option from One Attraction

Disney Removes the Single Rider Option from One Attraction

Single Rider lines are a great way to bypass the standby line and get on your favorite ride faster! But, only select attractions offer Single Rider and Disney just removed one.

There are a number of popular Disney attractions that offer Single Rider Lines. For those who are new to the concept, a Single Rider Line is a special line for those who are traveling solo or who don’t mind splitting up with the rest of their party to experience an attraction by themselves or potentially with strangers.

Basically, when Cast Members are loading the ride and have one seat available here and there where the parties didn’t quite fill up a ride, Single Riders get squeezed into those remaining seats. This helps to maximize the ride’s capacity.

Typically, the Single Rider Line is much shorter than the regular standby queue, which means less waiting around in line! Better yet, since it fills up the ride’s capacity, it makes things a teeny bit more efficient for everyone.

This benefit is available on Disney attractions from coast to coast. At Disney World:

  • Test Track
  • Soarin’
  • Expedition Everest
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
  • Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

At Disneyland, it is available on the following attractions:

  • Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure
  • Splash Mountain (soon to be Tiana’s Bayou Adventure)
  • Incredicoaster
  • Soarin’
  • Space Mountain

Unfortunately, Disneyland’s Space Mountain is NOT utilizing Single Rider. This seems to be pretty common as it flips back and forth between using and not using Single Rider.

We are unsure why this has occurred, but we are hopeful it may return in the future. Single Rider really is a great way to reduce the time you spend waiting in line.

We always us single rider. Find it very convenient. Don't mind being separated.

The worst meltdowns I've ever seen were on the Test Track single rider line - in spite of the many signs warning you will be separated, this one mother with two little girls had a full blown temper tantrum when they weren't allowed to ride together! "You can't make my children ride without me" was one of her arguments - it was ridiculous that she refused to understand that single rider meant you got a left over seat in different vehicles - after the Cast Member loading the vehicles told her the only option was to get back in line, she finally let her older daughter go in one vehicle, then she and the younger were in the same vehicle but different rows - that lady was MAD!!! I just wanted to laugh out loud at her entitlement

I've seen similar incidents play out that exact same way.

I used single rider for the Incredicoaster since the rest of my party couldnt handle thrill rides of that level, and loved it. It was shorter and less time waiting than the lightning lane. For Space Mountain, I can see why it would be less efficient since the cars themselves are all single rider cars at DW anyway and only 2 to a car at DL.
