RSR40 SRL has a whole bunches of parties of 4, not really an issue except the family in front of me has a 4-5 year old that us clinging into their adult! Dies this irk u or not? Opinions. I stood in a line in Florida where they told the parent and clinging child to start over from the beginning.

I think the complaint is that it's turning into a Double Rider Line? - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 3:56PM
I think it's simple answer. Single rider =SINGLE RIDER. If you want to go with your child who doesnt want to go alone then you wait the regular line like everyone else.if they cant wait 2 hours then theres plenty of other rides if you take the risk in single ride line hoping to ride together and the cm sends you back then cant be upset because it is called SINGLE RIDER not parent and child line lol - Hendizl  2822.0 #46 6:40PM

I feel like I'm in a Charlie Brown cartoon and the adults are talking. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:38PM
If the child isn't clinging onto you then don't worry about it. You would hate to stand in line with me, my 3 and 4 yearold like hugs and hand holding with mommy. - my-unbirthday1025  165.8 #2479 3:57PM
Please reread. He's upset that this child is in the single rider line but is obviously too young to ride alone. Not upset about the clinging child part, more that the parents need to think this one out a bit. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #541 8:04PM
krissy yes I know. I responded to this post before there was an explanation. He did not explain until AFTER I posted. - my-unbirthday1025  165.8 #2479 8:29AM
I think the point Mikey1228 is making that it is a single rider line and obviously this parent will be riding with their clingy kiddo...which means neither of them should be in the single rider line unless they are prepared for separate rides. - HRZee  20.5 #7254 3:58PM
They will not allow a 4 or 5 year old to ride alone. In this case they might make them go to the regular line. I believe a child has to be 7 to ride alone. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 4:03PM
I think it's really unfair to the child to make them ride alone (on a roller coaster, no less). We sacrificed sleep, and got to DCA early to take our 4 year old on it, because we know a 2 hour wait wouldn't cut it either. BUT I'd rather wait 2 hours and ride it with my 4-y.o. then stick him in a car alone so we can wait less time. I mean, he wouldn't even know how to buckle himself fast enough before the car took off! - brigeet  498.6 #429 6:29PM
I've heard the CM at the front ask how old the child is before. According to that CM the child must be 7 to ride single. As for a big party waiting in the single rider, that is their perogative if they don't want to ride together as a group. - LilSterner  5503.0 #19 7:05PM
Yes, seven is the age a child needs to be to ride alone. Under age seven requires they be accompanied by a person age 14 or older. However that child must also meet the height requirement. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:48PM
A child clinging to their parent bothers you? - my-unbirthday1025  165.8 #2479 3:47PM
That's what I got from the jumbled grammar too ;) - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 3:54PM
Not at all. Read comments above. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #541 8:06PM
????? - kweenofhearts  18.1 #7748 3:51PM
I don't quite understand this either. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 4:01PM
What exactly is considered "clinging" I have a 4 yr old who holds my hand while we are in line.. Oh the horror lol Why worry about kids clinging to their parents? It's better then them running amuck. - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 3:52PM
I would be very angry if I was told to start at the beginning of the line because my child was clinging to me. - PoppinsWoo  329.7 #751 3:56PM
Then again, we wouldn't be in the single rider line... - PoppinsWoo  329.7 #751 4:14PM
Finally somebody got it. I have no problem with this. In FLA three Disney CMs did nothing until they got to the last CM who was left with no option but have the father and child return to the start if the line - today I had a chat with the CM that was left to explain. After she sent them away. I asked at what age do they not let children ride without an adult. It's 5 and under! As for the clingy child - that's an obvious clue the child doesn't want to ride alone. Just saying and asking what's everyone thinking! Good topic and lots if responses. - Mikey1228  27.5 #6238 4:09PM
About the grammar and misspellings ! Get a grip, darn autocorrect and delayed typing on MW is enuf to drive u crazy! - Mikey1228  27.5 #6238 4:12PM
If you are going to post something about wanting opinions then clarify and be prepared for the responses.. πŸ‘ - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 4:14PM
Well, I wouldn't be taking my own 4 year old through SRL but if other people want to try not really my business. I wouldn't want to take the chance to have to wait in the regular line all over again though. - Leesha  650.6 #311 4:24PM
Its probably ok as long as its not an issue agen they get seperated at the front. - Mikesaxclar  679.8 #294 7:57PM
My family of four used the SRL and was able to ride 6 times over our 3 day visit. Most of the people in the SRL are in groups and should expect to be separated. A few times there was two of us in the same vehicle and sometimes we even raced against each other. I would have a huge problem if they allowed a young child in the SRL to ride with their parent. The CMs at the entry gate asked my daughter her age and I wondered what their cut off age was. A young child should never be in the line in the first place. - JIHobbs  0.1 #106907 8:29PM
Utilizing our fast passes this evening, we saw a mom and two littles in the SR line get very upset with a CM who wanted to split them up. She was advised to head to the reg line and I was thankful the CM was being firm with her. The Cm kept things moving with other 'real' single riders. We didn't see the resolution, but I do hate to see people try to bend the rules or think they just shouldn't apply to them. - Zara  283.3 #1032 10:37PM
