Walt Disney World for Rookies: What to Know Before You Go

Test Track

4. Single Riding All the Way

If you are jonesing for the rides and find yourself without a Disney Fast Pass, a way to make the lines more endurable is to simply hop in the single riders line. Disney World, while unbelievably magical is still at its base element a theme park, therefore theme parks can have ridiculous lines. Fret not, Mouseketeers, this can be conquered.  Though the sign may read “Wait Time 30 Minutes,” the single rider’s line moves quickly, and normally results in excellent seating. On my last trip to Epcot, I went alone, which meant I was always in the single rider lanes. The wait time for Test Track was 40 minutes, however, the single riders line was surprisingly brief. Long story short, I ended up only waiting 20 minutes to ride, as well as beating out the fast pass riders with a front seat to boot. Yes, you will have to wait on some of the larger attractions, but the single rider lines are often your best bet for a more manageable wait.
