    I'm fulfilling my bucket list item of visiting Disney World solo. If there is a single rider line, should I also schedule this ride on Genie +?

    Hi Janice,

    It's great to see you planning Disney at planDisney again. A solo trip to Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a dream. You've got me in Fantasyland thinking about what my must-dos for a solo trip would be. The first three things that come to mind are enjoying a parade-side Mickey pretzel on Main Street, U.S.A., indulging in a spa treatment at The Grand Floridian Spa, and sipping an adult beverage at one (or two) of the incredible lounges on property. Where do I sign up?!

    If experiencing attractions is a top priority during your trip, Disney Genie+ service is a great way to spend less time waiting and more time doing because it gives you access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. I recommend purchasing Genie+ via the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom righthand corner of the homepage --> Tip Board) by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m.

    Single rider lines are another great way to save time waiting in line for popular attractions. Attractions with single rider lines at Walt Disney World are Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Test Track at EPCOT, and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. In the absence of a posted wait time, I find single rider lines to be roughly one-third the wait time of the standby line. If you plan on experiencing one of these attractions via the single rider line, you do not need to book it as a Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction. Kindly note that if you choose the single rider line for Test Track you will not be able to create your own car and you will almost always be an engineer on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

    Based on the historic availability of arrival times, my recommended Genie+ attraction priorities are Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, Jungle Cruise at Magic Kingdom Park, Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Depending on your situation, you can book your next Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction as soon as you tap in at your first attraction or at the time listed on your Tip Board banner.

    I hope you have the best time flying solo at Walt Disney World in March, Janice. Second star to the right and straight on 'til Cinderella Castle!

    Plan magic; planDisney.
