Last week, we noticed that Slinky Dog Dash in Disney’s Hollywood Studios changed its loading procedure to begin seating guests in every row.
And just a few days before that, we noticed that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was doing the same. We’ve also seen the addition of plexiglass barriers between rows on more popular rides, such as Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Rise of the Resistance, with those rides also now loading guests in every row.
Back in November, we saw that some boats on Frozen Ever After at EPCOT had started to test loading guests on every row with the addition of plexiglass barriers. And today, we noticed that this is now the standard loading procedure for all boats on the attraction.
Loading each row hasn’t always made a huge difference in wait times for other attractions, but our wait time for Frozen Ever After was nearly cut in half from the usual hour or longer wait times we’ve seen in the past. Although the line still stretched all the way back to the China Pavilion, we were on the ride in 30 minutes.
We did notice that with this being a boat ride, the plexiglass tends to get wet and fogged over, making things inside the attraction a little hard to see at times.
But the trade-off was a much shorter wait than we’ve experienced in other recent trips. Frozen Ever After often has the longest wait times of any attraction at Disney World, so this could make a big difference in the number of guests able to experience the ride.
