Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #1 – Fast­pass+, Fast­pass+, Fast­pass+

The most ob­vi­ous way to avoid lines on the Thrill Rides at WDW is to use Fast­pass+. It’s fun to walk by ev­ery­one in line do­ing your best Bob Uecker im­i­ta­tion. Fast­pass+ is a big time saver. If you can get it. BUT… The Thrill Rides at WDW are typ­i­cally some of the first rides to run out of Fast­pass+ times which means you might have to look for al­ter­na­tive ways to save time in lines, like…

Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #2 – Sin­gle Rider Lines

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Test Track and Ex­pe­di­tion Ever­est of­fer Sin­gle Rider lines. Sin­gle Rider lines may be the best way ever in­vented to stand­ing in those long, slow mov­ing lines. The Sin­gle Rid­ers lines are used for odd num­ber groups. For ex­am­ple a Test Track car holds six peo­ple. If a party has five or maybe two parties of two, “ex­tras” are pulled from the Sin­gle Rider line to fill the ex­tra seats. If you are with a group, you may not, and prob­a­bly won’t be rid­ing to­gether. But you won’t be far apart ei­ther. I’ve tried the Sin­gle Rider line on both Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and Test Track. Each time the posted wait was around 90 min­utes. I was in the ride ve­hi­cle on both rides within 10 min­utes. I’m sure Ex­pe­di­tion Ever­est is pretty much the same.

Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #3 – Rider Swap

Rider Swap is just cool if you have kids that can’t (or won’t) ride on the Thrill Rides. Rider Swap works by al­low­ing one par­ent to ride the ride while the other one waits with the kids. Then when the first one is through, you swap and the second one rides. This isn’t a big time saver. You still have to stand in line, but you don’t have to stand in line twice. It even works with Fast­pass+ All the Thrill Rides have Rider Swap along with sev­eral other rides that kids might not want to ex­pe­ri­ence.
