  • Kinda weird question about going single

    Hi I've been on and off this forum for years but somewhere lost my info so not completely new but I'm asking a weird kinda question I know. Small back story my wife of 23 years passed away 12 weeks ago (stupid cancer) Dec 5th is our weeding anniversary, I'm coming down to the park for it. We would come down once or twice a year but we always were together, never used single rider. My question is, is there a lot of rides that do single rider shorter line thing? If so how do I go about access this?

    I'M Single....I find
    single rider ,most of time .
    If not sure ,that the attraction has a single rider ,just ask a Cast Member .......
    they very helpful and friendly !
    In fact it was a CastMember, who told me first place.......about
    single rider.
    I wish you well and enjoy......going single at the parks , is a great way to meet new friends ......

      First of all, I’m so sorry for your loss, but I think it’s lovely for you to spend your anniversary at a magical place you enjoyed with your wife.

      Here is the list of rides with single rider: https://disneyland.disney.go.com/att...gle-rider-line

      The setup varies by attraction. For example, Matterhorn and Radiator Springs have clearly marked single-rider lines. For Indy, when you walk up to the attraction, you just tell the cast member that you want single rider, and they give you a card and tell you to go in through the exit.

          Not a weird question at all. So sorry to hear of your loss. That's hard. I think that your solo trip sounds like a lovely idea.
          • Indiana Jones - single rider line is by going in the exit. There'll be a cast member there to ask and he/she will direct you.
          • Matterhorn - it's labelled and easy to spot but there's a CM there who you can ask as well. Sometimes if the SR line is full, they'll say to try back in 15-20 min.
          • Space Mountain - I've never done this SR so I'm not sure the protocol.
          • Splash Mountain - pretty sure you go in the exit
          • Star Tours - not sure what the SR loading procedure is here, but ask a CM at the ride entrance
          • Radiator Springs Racers - there's a SR line that's labelled. But if the SR line is all the way to where the CM is standing right at the entrance to the queue, then that SR line is probably 45 min long. You could go on this multiple times by switching between SR and Fast Pass.
          • Incredicoaster, Goofy's Sky School, Grizzly River Run - never done SR on these, but ask a CM at the ride entrance and they'll direct you to the right place.
          • Millennium Falcon ride - I think they're using the FP line as the SR line, but others should probably chime in and correct me if I'm wrong. :-)

              You go to the exit-past the photos and the bathrooms.
            • Splash Mountain - pretty sure you go in the exit
            • Star Tours - not sure what the SR loading procedure is here, but ask a CM at the ride entrance
              I didn't know ST had it.
            • Radiator Springs Racers - there's a SR line that's labelled. But if the SR line is all the way to where the CM is standing right at the entrance to the queue, then that SR line is probably 45 min long. You could go on this multiple times by switching between SR and Fast Pass.

              Incredicoaster-Go out of the ride, up the boardwalk and in the chicken exit near the front of the line. CM will direct you to the elevator to go up and over.

              GRR-go to CM at standby entrance. They'll give you a pick card and direct you to the exit.
            • Millennium Falcon ride - I think they're using the FP line as the SR line, but others should probably chime in and correct me if I'm wrong. :-)
            If you forget, look at the map. There's a light blue "S" by the rides with single rider.

            Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

              Back in 2015, Splash's Single Rider was through the exit. After going through the exit, you get detoured over a bridge to the regular loading side. You get a rare view of the logs passing underneath you.

                Sorry for your loss.

                Members above has posted the list of rides. In my experience, Single Rider on Splash Mountain doesn't seem to save you much time over a FastPass. I've waited at least half an hour. Now that could be my luck but it's happened a couple times. It's definitely saved a lot of time on Indy. Definitely utilize Single Rider, but FPs do come in handy too.

                  First of all....I am sorry for your loss. Cancer sucks. You won't be alone. Your wife will be there with you. Keep an open mind and if "things happen"...just enjoy it. I enjoyed Disneyland far more going in alone. "He who travels fast, travels alone." Going with another person, well...for me...it's work. I was always the tour guide: "you worked here, what should we do? Will there be a long line at Pirates? Where do we eat?" I got far more accomplished by myself. You see and hear things you won't when someone is with you. You'll meet people, most of which you'll never see again, but it's fun to chat for a while and find out peoples stories. Everyone has one. Most important thing is to have FUN! Things like high prices, and long lines and all the other crap people moan about on here...well...it means absolutely nothing. Have fun planning the trip...the anticipation is part of the experience.

                      May she forever Rest In Peace.

                      Enjoy your trip! Not a weird question at all- I've visited the park single many times, and it's very fun. You can go at your own pace, slow down and really enjoy little things that a bigger group might miss.

                      I have a feeling she will be right along side you still

                          I agree with this! FP has generally been shorter than Single rider on Splash )in my experience.

                          If you haven't been on Millennium Falcon yet, you may want to keep an eye on wait time and just wait in the regular line if it is 35-40 minutes. The queue is pretty cool. I once waited 1 hr and 15 minutes in single rider when the regular line was 45 minutes. Not sure if that's normal, but ugh.

                          That all being said, my condolences on your loss. Stupid Cancer, indeed. I sincerely hope you have a wonderful trip, and feel your wife beside you, enjoying it, too. Hugs.
