It’s no secret that Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are some of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. So, it comes as no surprise to hear that each Disney Resort becomes incredibly packed during the spring break season.
As the spring break crowds descend upon Disney Parks, the lines become unbearably long. However, Disneyland Resort has begun testing an old operation that may help with the crazy long lines during spring break.
When the COVID-19 pandemic had the world in its perilous grip, many changes were made to everyone’s daily lives and routines. Things were no different at Disney Resorts. Masks became mandatory, as did standing six feet apart, crowds were thin due to lower capacity caps, and single rider lines were temporarily disbanded.
However, theme park reporter Scott Gustin has recently announced that the beloved single rider line will begin testing again at a classic Disneyland coaster: Space Mountain.

For anyone unfamiliar with single rider lines, it’s a specific standby queue for Guests riding an attraction with no other members of their party. Commonly, Guests apart of a party will wait together in a single rider line because they don’t mind being separated.
If you’re traveling with a party and don’t want to be separated from them, then the single rider line may not be for you! Families and parties will be separated in the single rider line without exceptions!
However, single rider lines are very convenient for those who want to ride an attraction despite not traveling with a party. Typically, the single rider lines are quicker than standby queues as well.
At this time, we don’t know the end date for this testing period. Hopefully, this Space Mountain single rider line testing period will go well, and the operation will return to other roller coaster attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or even Splash Mountain.
