It’s that time of the week! We’re checking out the average wait times in Disney World from this week!
It’s been a hefty week of news as Disneyland has reopened and more details about the Disney Wish were announced. But, Disney World was still as busy as ever with guests hustling and bustling in the parks! Today, we’re looking at the average wait times in ALL four Disney World theme parks!
For another week in a row, Splash Mountain reigns supreme with a 60 minute wait this week. The other highest waits we spotted were over at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with 46 minutes, Jungle Cruise with 37 minutes, Space Mountain with 33 minutes, and Pirates of the Caribbean at 30 minutes.
The largest group of wait times were the stretch of attractions sitting in the 20 minute range. The highest slots went to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at 29 minutes, Peter Pan’s Flight at 29 minutes, Astro Orbiter at 28 minutes, and Mickey’s PhilarMagic at 25 minutes.
Tom Sawyer Island and Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover were tied at 24 minutes, despite the PeopleMover reopening for the first time in a year this week with longer lines. Other wait times in the 20 minute range include “it’s a small world” at 23 minutes, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at 23 minutes, and Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at 22 minutes.
Plenty of Magic Kingdom’s attractions remained in the teens with waits like 19 minutes at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, 17 minutes at Haunted Mansion, 16 minutes at Dumbo the Flying Elephant, 15 minutes at Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid and Tomorrowland Speedway, 14 minutes at The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, 13 minutes at Country Bear Jamboree, 12 minutes at Mad Tea Party, 11 minutes at The Barnstormer, and 10 minutes at Carousel of Progress.
The lowest wait time was 2 minutes at Liberty Square Riverboat. However, some attractions like the Enchanted Tiki Room, and Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse had zero minutes waits. Hall of Presidents is currently under construction.
The longest wait time hitting an hour isn’t SUPER long, compared to other weeks. Yet, as summer nears closer, we’ll have to keep an eye on how the wait shift in the next few months!
Unlike the Magic Kingdom, all of EPCOT’s attractions remained underneath an hour! Similar to previous weeks, Test Track sat at 46 minutes with the highest wait. It was followed by Soarin‘ with 44 minutes, Frozen After Ever with 41 minutes, and Mission: SPACE with 39 minutes.
The rest of the attractions throughout the park had lower waits with Spaceship Earth at 23 minutes, Journey Into Imagination with Figment and The Seas with Nemo & Friends at 13 minutes, Living with the Land at 10 minutes, and the Gran Fiesta Tour at 9 minutes.
An array of experiences had zero minute wait times, like the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, Awesome Planet, Impressions de France, and Reflections of China, and American Adventure.
We’ll have to keep an eye on any changes happening around the park, including whether popular rides like Test Track and Soarin’ see fluctuations.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Right up there with Splash Mountain, Slinky Dog Dash was the busiest attraction with a 60 minute wait! The Tower of Terror and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run were close behind it, though, with a 58 minute wait and 42 minute wait respectively.
…while the rest of the attractions in the parks sat in the 20 minute tier! You could hop over to Toy Story Mania with a 27 minute wait, Muppet*Vision 3D with 26 minutes, Alien Swirling Saucers with 25 minutes, and Star Tours and Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy with 24 minutes.
Of course, Rise of the Resistance isn’t averaged into these numbers because it’s a virtual queue! But, you’ll want to note that those Boarding Passes go FAST!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
While Pandora usually has the top contender for the highest wait time, Avatar Flight of Passage lost out to Slinky Dog Dash and Splash Mountain with only 57 minutes. Also in the Valley of Mo’ara, the Na’vi River Journey had an average 31 minute wait.
Many of the attractions in the park either sat in the 30 minute range with a wait time of 35 minutes at Kilimanjaro Safaris and 31 minutes at Dinosaur…
…or they were in the teens with 19 minutes at Kali River Rapids and 16 minutes at Expedition Everest. The lowest wait time in the park, though, was at Triceratop Spin with 7 minutes.
This week’s average wait times have continued to drop around the parks from previous weeks. But, we’ll have to keep an eye on them as summer crowds head to the parks soon! In the meantime, stay tuned to DFB, and check for our weekly wait times next week!
