When you plan a trip to Disney, it can be overwhelming. But if you read this, you will learn the secret way to bypass lines at Disney World!
How do I know you can Bypass Lines at Disney World?
I learned a secret when I was on one of my favorite rides at Disney World. (see some pics here) My son and I were at EPCOT, in the Lightning Lane for his favorite ride Test Track, when we saw some folks passing us.
What?! What is going on here? We are supposed to get preferential treatment because we have the Lightning Lane pass!
One of these women ended up sitting next to me in our car. Her name is Linda and she is from New York, originally, currently lives in North Jersey. (I get it from my mom). I politely asked Linda how she got to the front of the line, and what she told me was shocking…
Booking your trip …
Booking your trip to Disney World is one of the most exciting things you can do. But it can also add a little bit of anxiety to your life. There is so much you want to do, so much you want to see, but you know 99% of the other guests in the park are thinking the same thing, and you are all aiming for the same target.
The question is – how do you get the most out of your Disney vacation? Lighting Lane passes give you an opportunity to get a timed ticket that allows you to bypass the line and go right to the ride. Lightning Line passes are great, but you have to buy them and they are limited.
You can also hire a Disney escort to take you through the park(s). I have seen several groups of six or so people being led around by their Disney rep, but I cannot imagine how much that will set you back.
The affordable option for you is to ride alone. There are four rides in Disney World that consistently allow single riders, each in a different park. That is how my new friend from New York and her daughter get to the front of the line. They went on as single riders and lucked out because they both ended up in the same car.
Disney recommends you always check with a Cast Member to make sure the single rider line is available. Also, keep in mind that when you do the single rider line, you will not only bypass the line, you will also bypass the story-telling that leads up to the ride. When my son chose to ride Test Track as a single, he was not able to create his own car, which is something he really enjoys doing.
