Want to SKIP the LONG standby line at a popular Disney ride? Well, there are a few ways you could do that.
You could rope drop the park to try and get on the ride with a shorter wait, or stick around until later at night to see if lines die down. You could also pay for one or both of Disney’s FastPass+ replacement services — Disney Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selection — to skip the standby lines. But what if you could skip the line for FREE?
There’s still a way to (potentially) skip some of the standby lines at popular attractions without having to pay extra — the single rider line! Though often forgotten about, the single rider lane can sometimes be a good way to get on a ride with a shorter wait than the regular standby line (as long as you’re willing to split up your party).
Single rider lanes are available at a number of different Disney park rides, and now this type of lane has been added to another popular attraction!
A single rider line is now available for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure in Disney California Adventure Park. We stopped by today to check it out. You’ll find the standby line between the Lightning Lane and the Standby Lane.
Note that WEB SLINGERS is available through Individual Attraction Selection (pay-per-ride), meaning that if you want to use the Lightning Lane to skip the standby line, you’ll need to pay for that individually (it is not part of the standard Genie+ service in Disneyland).
Using the standby line or the single rider line, however, is free (a.k.a. included in the price of your park ticket).
When we entered the single rider line, the standby queue was at a 65 minute wait. The Cast Member we spoke to initially said that they let in about 10 single riders every 5 minutes. Keep in mind that this was just an estimate based on the Cast Member we spoke to.
Our total wait time (including the ride time) was just at around 17 minutes! That’s pretty great compared to the 65 minutes listed for the standby wait.
In terms of the single rider line itself, we went through the same pre-show experience the standby line goes through, but we were placed in a separate “line” next to some barriers.
After the pre-show, we went through a separate corridor and then ultimately met up with the standby line. We were then placed into our cars, and off we went to save the day!
It was a pretty quick and relatively easy way to get on the ride without having to pay for the Lightning Lane or wait in the longer standby line! Win, win!
Just keep in mind that by going through the single rider line, you’re agreeing to split up your party. That means your group likely will not sit together during the ride. And note that while using the single rider line can sometimes help you wait less, we did wait 50 minutes in a single rider line once in Disney World — so it’s not necessarily a guarantee of a super short wait.
But sometimes using the singer rider line can save you some waiting time and help you get on that ride a little quicker, so it’s something to consider! Would you use the single rider line on this attraction? Tell us in the comments.
We’ll continue to look for more updates and share those with you!
