We’re in Magic Kingdom today for the Annual Passholder preview of the reopening!
One of our BIGGEST questions has been how long wait times will be in Magic Kingdom. Well, we’re working on figuring it out; some lines are definitely LONG. You might think the longest line in Magic Kingdom today would be Splash Mountain (after all it IS going to get reimagined). You’re close, but there’s actually a MUCH longer wait for something else.
It’s true, the attraction had a little under an hour wait this morning — but the LARGEST line in Magic Kingdom today was for the SPLASH MOUNTAIN MERCH! Frontierland stores are using a virtual line (much like we saw in Disney Springs when World of Disney opened).
You’ll never guess how long the wait was when we got in line — 240 MINUTES! That’s FOUR HOURS. Dang, people really want their Bre’r Bear plush toys!
Is this wait time the most surprising thing we’ve seen in Magic Kingdom today? Maybe. Keep in mind guests don’t have to physically stand in line. The virtual line will send them a text when it’s their turn in line. Stay tuned for ALL the updates from the Passholder Preview days in Disney World!
