It’s no secret that with Halloween fast approaching, Disney World parks have been getting a lot busier!
We’re already seeing parks fill up for Halloween, but even this week has been pretty busy! We were at Magic Kingdom today, and we’ve got some photos and video of the crowds we saw there!
In Fantasyland, the line for the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel was wrapped TWICE around the carousel.
And, y’all — there was even a line for Mickey’s PhilharMagic. That’s the first line we’ve seen for that attraction in a LONG time.
There was a 45-minute wait for Astro Orbiter.
The wait time for Barnstormer over in Storybook Circus said 25 minutes.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant only had a wait time of 20 minutes.
However, the line for Splash Mountain stretched all the way to Frontierland with a wait time of 90 minutes! We think everyone is trying to ride this attraction as many times as possible before it gets re-themed.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction was down temporarily, but when it came back up, it’s wait time was only 25 minutes, which isn’t TOO bad.
Of course, some of these long lines just look that way due to social distancing guidelines. But in general, the park felt more crowded today.
However, we still noticed that guests were doing their best to physically distance themselves from other guests, even during character cavalcades.
We expect these crowds will continue through Halloween and into the holidays, especially with park passes filling up through the rest of the year. Magic Kingdom is almost always at the top of everyone’s favorite park list, ESPECIALLY during the holidays, so we expect to see these crowds at least through January 1st. Do keep in mind, that although the parks look crowded, Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek has shared that capacity is still capped at 25%.
We’ll keep you updated on crowds at the parks!
