Single Riders Line and how it can help you on your vacation


One of the biggest secrets at the Orlando area theme parks are the single riders lines for certain attractions. Not all of the rides and attractions have them, but if you utilize the single riders line at the attractions that feature it, you’ll be able to save some time using it. In some cases, I have seen wait times literally cut in half if you utilize the single riders line.

What is the single riders line?

The single riders line is a seperate line, much like Express Pass and FastPass have their own line and standby has its own line. Once you enter the single riders line and reach the loading platform, you are placed into empty spots that are left vacant by the Express and Standby lines. This means that you will most likely be split up from your family or group. So if you’re wanting to ride with your family or friends, the single riders line may not be the best option or you. But, if you don’t mind being split up, the single riders line may be sometime for you to look into. This is mainly due to the fact that the single riders line for specific attractions is usually a lot shorter than the standby line.

A fair word of warning about some of the single rider queue lines. Some of the queue lines at certain attractions have elaborately themed queue lines that will explain the story of the attraction, much of that will be bypassed if you decide to utilize single riders line.

As mentioned above, the single riders line will split your party up and you will be placed in any seat that needs to be filled, so younger guests that have to ride with a supervising adult, any handicapped guests that may require a special wheelchair seating and guests with larger frames that may require the modified seating, may want to skip the single riders line.
