Single Rider and Customized Touring Plans

Do most of the big “thrill” rides (e.g., Space Mountain, Matterhorn, etc.) have single rider lines? If so, since these are often a much shorter wait, how can you adjust customized touring plan to account for using these lines on some attractions?

I don’t know how it works here, but even though it was nice of Andy to come up with intro stuff, the question was really directed at Touring Plans folks. Don’t they monitor and answer questions that directly pertain to them?

No they don’t. The forums are for users to chat to each other. Unless it’s an extremely technical question, usually other users will know the answers.

If you want to contact TP staff directly, you need to email webmaster@touringplans.com.

In this particular case, I’m quite sure that many of the experienced DL liners will be able to help out with advice.

@lolabear_la @Wahoohokie any advice?

Ah, thank you for tagging me, it seems like I missed this one in the “Disneyland category catch-up after getting home from vacation” that I’ve been doing for a little bit now. :woman_technologist:t4:

Single rider lines exist for:
Incredicoaster
Goofy’s Sky School
Radiator Springs Racers
Grizzly River Run
Space Mountain
Indiana Jones
Matterhorn
Splash

There are no single rider lines for Guardians or Soarin but they do call out for parties of 1 2 or 3 as needed to fill seats. They also started a single rider line for Star Tours this year but this last weekend they didn’t have it open (it wasn’t really needed as the crowds were so low that standby waits for it were never over 30 min). For a few other rides they will occasionally have “buddy pass” lines where strictly parties of 2 can line up to fill in the last row on the ride vehicles for Monsters Inc and TSMM. But I haven’t seen either of those available lately either. At Winnie the Pooh without fail, they will also be always looking for parties of 2 to fill in the last row but haven’t ever had a dedicated queue area for them.

The single rider lines for Space, Indy and Splash aren’t always open and usually most of the single rider lines won’t open until standby & FP lines are no longer walk-ons. When open the single rider for Space is great (but this is the most inconsistent one on being reliably open).

As for putting them in the plan, you can try to make it work with FP timing (usually SR will be better/quicker) but that can get to be a lot of work and you may be trying to use FP as well, so either add in SR lines as a break or for the ones you just can’t get an accurate timing for the FP wait, leave it as standby & you’ll be ahead of plan most of the day.
