We have done this several times very late at night with extra magic hours. We rode Haunted Mansion 4 times in a row and PC 3 times in a row. It was in early March about 2am. They told us if there were anyone in line we would have to get off and go thru the line again but we could continue riding if no one was there. The park was basically deserted--it was GREAT. We rode Kali River Rapids 5 times in a row. On Everest there were 3 of 4 people in line and they made us get off and get in line again--still awesome and gave me a minute to get my equilibrium back! The very last time they let us stay on the ride without getting off before they shut the park down. Totally depends on the cast members working at the moment.

My mind is drawing a blank - what is PC? Can't be PotC, because there is a physical barrier between loading and unloading.

Plunder Cruise?
Pluto Coaster?
President's Casino?
People Cups?
Peter Can?

Wow, thanks for all the responses!

The two I was really hoping for were Spaceship Earth and Haunted Mansion. I'll be at both parks early in my trip for late-night EMH, so here's hoping.

Of course, my soul will not be crushed in any way by a "no", but I never worked up the courage to even ask except on the People Mover because the loading areas are so obvious to each other and I was the only person in my set of cars anyway

Now, I just need to invent a time machine so that I can get to ride in the cab of the monorail...

So, the CMs at the load area are expecting. Specific number of Doombuggies to already filled when they arrive there.
We did get to ride through once on HM. It was late in the evening during the second parade and no body was going on - maybe 10 people in the stretching room with us, they were lots of empty Doombuggies. My husband asked if we could go again and they said yes. The next time we came to the exit, the CM said no, and when we exited we saw the parade had ended and they had a big line again, so I understand why.

We have ridden at least 5 times in a row on Splash, if not 6, I don't remember exactly. No one was waiting (EMH and I will sure miss not being able to do this anymore) and we were in the front of a totally empty log. We had a blast! We also rode Spaceship Earth 5 times in a row, I think we ran the program in just about every language available that night. DH loves that ride.

We did it once on Test Track. When we came in to unload, the CMs asked if we wanted to go again. The loading platform was empty though, so I guess they were having 'issues' in the pre-show area???

In '10 my niece and I rode RnRC with almost no line. When we got off, the cm said to go through a door near the front of the train. It led to the back of the waiting area, where there was no line and we got right on. Rode 3 times in a row with virtually no wait. Also rode KRR 6 times without getting off in '08.

Does anyone know if there are other rides that you can do this on? Like Spaceship Earth or Haunted Mansion? Or did I just get lucky and find a CM that let me get away with it on TTA?
If it's not busy we have stayed on and kept riding alot of rides:

Aladdins Magic Carpets
TeaCups
Winnie the Pooh
Peter Pan
It's A Small World
Astro Orbitor
Buzz
Spaceship Earth
Mexican Donald Ride
Test Track
Mission Space

Anytime we have stayed on these rides had either been EMH or really late park hours when it's been raining.

We rode Kali River Rapids 4 or 5 times in a row one year...September, I think. When we finally got off, every single person in our raft was sopping wet. I heard a lady say, "holy CRAP! THAT'S how wet you get!!! I am not going on this ride!"

Epcot- Mexico Ride, boat ride at the Land, Figment

DHS- Star Tours, maybe Great Movie Ride?

AK- the boat ride back when it first opened, can't think of much else
I can see you re-riding all of those except Figment. Figment has a tunnel between its unload and load area, and it's only big enough for the train to get through. A person could ride there, but if the train were to stop there for any reason, theres no way for Cast to safely get to the guests in case of an emergency.

Basically, any ride without a safety measure or active monitoring occuring, a guest won't be allowed there. (Pirates comes to mind, Tower of Terror, Maelstrom maybe)
