There are some definite pros and cons of doing the single rider lines at Disney World. You can save time by waiting in these lines instead of the normal standby line.
A single rider line is where you can wait in a shorter line for Disney World attractions and you’ll be riding the attraction with people you don’t know, rather than with the group of people you’re in the parks with. This is to fill in the empty seats on a ride before it takes off.
You can still wait in the line with your group, you’ll just be split up once you reach the front and start getting on the ride.
You also won’t get to see the whole queue for each of these Disney World rides, which can be fun to look around at.
Keep in mind that you will still be waiting in a line, you most likely will not just walk right onto a ride.
Also, you still have to meet the height requirements for each ride and you cannot request where to be seated.
The Walt Disney Company rides that have the single rider option are popular rides with long wait times. I recommend doing single riders if you’re hoping to go on a lot of rides on a day that they parks are super busy.
If you can’t find where the single rider entrance is for a ride, talk to a nearby cast member and they’ll help you with where you need to go for it.
Each ride should have the wait times listed for the regular line and the single rider line.
If you’ve been wondering what all of the single rider rides at Walt Disney World are, then you’re in the right place. I’ll give you a list of all of them at Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Ecpot, and Magic Kingdom.
Animal Kingdom Rides
- Expedition Everest
The entrance for Expedition Everest’s single rider line is by the ride’s gift shop called Serka Zong Bazaar.

Hollywood Studios Rides
- Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster
- Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run
On Millennium Flacon Smugglers Run it’s very likely that you will be an engineer. If you don’t want to be an engineer, then I don’t recommend doing the single rider line for that attraction.
There are some cool things in the standby line’s queue that you will miss out on, like seeing the Millennium Falcon and Hondo’s Repair Bay.
Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith songs is a really fun ride, but it can have super long wait times! This is the perfect ride to do the single rider line on.
- Test Track
- Soarin’ Around The World
On Test Track, you won’t be able to design your own car. Keep this in mind before deciding if you want to do single rider or not.
Soarin’ Around The World does not have a permanent single rider line, which means that the single rider queue is not always open and not always an option.
You’ll have to check if it is or not while you’re there. You can find out by going to the ride and seeing if there is a cast member holding a single rider sign.
Magic Kingdom Rides
Sadly, there are not any Magic Kingdom rides with single rider lines. Hopefully one day they’ll give us some since some of the rides there have a really long approximate wait time.
If you’re already planning to do rider swap, then definitely do single rider too. Rider swap is where 2 adults can take turns going on a ride while the other watches the child/children who cannot go on that ride.
You ride by yourself for rider swap anyway, so you might as well do the single rider line to make it even quicker.
If you’re wanting to get on rides quickly, but don’t want to be split up, then Lightning Lane might be a better option for you.
You can do Lightning Lanes on Test Track, Expedition Everest, Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster, and Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run.
Remember, you can also use Disney Genie+ to save time and get on rides quicker. You can add this to your Disney World tickets.
