Timesaver Tip at Epcot for a Disney World Vacation by:Allison Jones
Just the other day, I was at Epcot for the International Flower & Garden Festival. Since I was at Epcot, I had to ride one of my favorite attractions called Test Track. This fun thrill ride always has a long line. We normally suggest skipping the long waits at these more popular rides by using FastPass. Unfortunately, sometimes you do not get a FastPass in time or just want to quickly catch on of your favorite rides. That is when the Single Rider line can be a great timesavers. At Epcot, there are two very popular attractions that have Single Rider lines. These attractions are Test Track and Mission Space.
On this day, I just popped in to get some pictures of the International Flower & Garden Festival and to ride Test Track. The regular wait time for Test Track was 60 minutes. However, the Single Rider line was only 10 minutes. I bet you can guess what line we went to, the 10 minute line. In the Single Rider line you will not ride with the rest of your party. You will ride with other guests. However, the experience was just as much fun. Besides, how much talking do you really do when you are on this type of ride. It was a exciting ride and we only waited in line for 10 minutes.
When hitting Epcot, always check the Single Rider line before picking up a FastPass or waiting in the regular queline. Spend you time enjoying Epcot, not waiting in lines!
