Single Rider Line - Age or Height Requirement?

"Hi Dad!

We are heading to Walt Disney World again this August. I know about child swap since I have two sons and we use that often. Now that they are getting older, they fit the height requirements for rides that have single rider. However, when we went two years ago my one son was tall enough to ride Expedition Everest but the cast member wouldn't let him use the single rider line with his dad. Is there a another height requirement or age thing that we are missing for young kids for single rider?


Age not Height

Hi Kellie,

I love the single rider lines. I'm always hopping on Test Track or Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (haven't tried single rider on Expedition Everest yet). On busy days it saves lots of time. Mrs. Mom and I have even done it on Test Track.

There is a seven year-old age requirement for the Single Rider lines. No height requirement.

Hopefully the kids are older now and can enjoy that perk.

Dad's Bottom Line

There you go. It's an age requirement that probably tripped you up last time.

I will be going with a 15 yr old that will want to ride rides that I am not able to ride. Can I stand on line with her in the single line and not ride the ride and be able to wait for her when she gets off the ride.

Yes. The rides with single rider lines have a "chicken" exit for those who decide to not ride.
