    What Is Better? Fast Pass Or Single Rider?

    I think single rider is the best because you can ride as much as you want and there usually is NO line!

    Opinions?

    I suppose single rider is cool....but isn't Splash Mt the only DL ride with that option?

    Disneyland:
    Splash Mountain

    Disney's California Adventure:
    California Screamin'
    Soarin' Over California
    Mulholland Madness
    Grizzly River Run
    Maliboomer (Unsure)

    If you get Fastpass, you may request specific seats. Single Rider waives that right. But if you don't care where you sit, then it doesn't matter.

    Depends on the attraction really. I know that single rider on Soarin over California can either be a blessing or a curse. I've used single rider and boarded right away and other times you end up waiting for quite a while before you get to board.

    For most attractions, if I was alone, I'd prefer Single Rider. But for Soarin', I think FastPass is better. You're grouped with everyone else and are more likely to get a decent seat. Single Flyers on Soarin' are like umm... people on standby at the airport, getting space-available seating, which isn't always the best.

    Re: What Is Better? Fast Pass Or Single Rider?

    The true answer depends on the ride. I am always amazed when there is a 120 minute wait for Splash Mountain (like there was the weekend before last), and I get into a log using Single Rider in LESS THAN A MINUTE (no kidding)!

    Same thing yesterday at California Screamin', and Grizzly River Rapids. Right on the ride, almost no waiting.

    However, Soarin', at least the way it operates, is not the same -- it's better to use FastPass than use single rider for that one particular ride.

    I like SR more than FP. But FP is still cool.

    I've never done single rider, but I am crazy about the fast pass.

    Single Rider is a godsend for Splash Mountain. I only wish they did single rider for Space Mountain. The seating is no different than Screamin'. They could just have you come in thru the exit. (Just like Splash)

    Re: What Is Better? Fast Pass Or Single Rider?

    Star Tours could easily handle a single rider queue. They could just have the single riders go up the wheelchair entrance. There is usually always an empty seat or two per cabin. But maybe its line doesn't get long enough to justify a single rider option, I dunno...

    Re: What Is Better? Fast Pass Or Single Rider?

    I love the single rider option...0-10 minutes when Splash's FastPasses are gone and standby is 120 minutes. SWEEEEET. I've had great luck in SR lines for Screamin' and Soarin', too.

    I dunno about this, often times when I want to use single rider for Splash Mountain the line can last as long as the stand-by line. Depends on the CM. So I never depend on it, fastpass is waaaaaay more reliable for getting on rides quickly.

    Re: What Is Better? Fast Pass Or Single Rider?

    Single Rider + California Screamin' = Pure Happiness

    Seriously though, most of the times I have done it there was no line and I could just hop on and off. The guy next to me said it was his 47th time in one day!
