    This is just was I was thinking. Smart on your part. I've done this many times whether it was at a turnstile or in line for food. It also happens many times when I would go to POTC here at WDW and people would always use the right side of the line and follow all the other people even though the left side was also open.

    That sounds better, cheaper, and on hot days, quite refreshing.

    Smart. People just tend to follow what people are forming a line for, all over the park, assuming that others know what they are doing.

    Smart. You snooze, you lose! If people aren't paying attention they .... well, they get to stand in line!

    It's smart... unless you were one of the people in the other line, and then you'd think it was irritating and wrong. All depends on your point of view.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    To me, this would only be line jumping if the CM had specifically called out to the "next person in line" and you scurried past them.

    You're smart....and you have something called COMMON SENSE!!!

    This is DL, there's tight schedules, parades to view, fireworks to see, and FPs to use.

    There's no time for common courtesy!!

    Helps to have that short hair, too.

    Back to topic: smart, lucky, quick.
    This is why I prefer one line, with new servicers taking the next in line. It's easier to take a servicer out of service this way as well. AKA, "The bank line method."

    Re: Smart thinking or line cutting?

    Whenever I'm in this situation, inevitably, just as I get to the empty queue, someone from the other line rudely yells that "there's only one line!!!" and by then, 4 more people have joined the original queue and I find myself even further back in the line than before!
