How Do Single Rider Lines Work at Disney World? | Explained
Single Rider Lines signs can be found at several rides around Disney World.
In this page, we'll explain how Single Rider lines work at Disney World, which rides offer them, and the pros and cons of this option.
How Do Single Rider Lines Work at Disney World?
Single Rider Lines basically work as a fill-in option to rides. It allow one person to skip waiting in the regular line of a ride, and fill in where there is an empty seat.
At every ride there are a number of seats available, and since there are different party sizes, there will almost always be an empty seat.
For example, if the ride has 4 seats but there's a family of 3, there will be an empty spot.
This is where the Single Rider Line comes in.
Pros of Single Rider Lines
You'll be able to get on the most popular rides with minimal waiting.
During the busier days, it can take several hours of standing in line before you're able to ride the popular rides.
Using a Single Rider Line has proven over the years to be a very efficient way to overcome the long lines.
Cons of Single Rider Lines
The main con of a Single Rider Line is that you'll be sitting with other visitors that you won't know.
If you're someone that can easily make friends or start up a conversation with anyone, this won't be a big deal.
Is the Single Rider Line Worth it?
If you're someone who mostly enjoys going on rides with family and friends, or people that they know in general, the Single Rider Line may not be worth it for you.
However, if you're someone that doesn't mind sitting with other people that you don't know, and just want to experience the ride without waiting for hours, the Single Rider Line is absolutely worth it.

How to Find the Single Rider Lines
There will be signs right at the front entrance of the rides, with an arrow pointing to the direction where you will need to go.
You'll simply need to follow the signs, and you'll have the single rider experience.
Can I Enter a Single Rider Line With My Entire Party?
Yes you absolutely can, however you should be aware that you won't be sitting next to each other.
Additionally, whoever ends up riding first will have to wait for the rest of the party to finish riding.
If everyone in the group is an adult, this is very easy to do, however if there are any kids in the party, this may not be the most ideal situation.
