We’re back in a very busy Disney World this week to bring you the weekly wait times!
Last week, many fan-favorite rides saw a decrease in average wait times. Now, with Disney World at capacity most of this week, wait times (for the most part) are on the rise again! Today,we’re taking a look at the average wait times in ALL four Disney World theme parks!
Last week, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train lost its winning streak of highest wait time in all of Disney World when it went down to 62 minutes. Somehow, despite the spring break crowds, the wait time went down AGAIN to a 54 minute average this week!
Other wait times for thrill rides include Space Mountain averaged 43 minutes, Splash Mountain averaging 50 minutes (which is 6 minutes lower than last week), and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad averaged 33 minutes (which is down 11 minutes from last week). Pirates of the Caribbean had a pretty high wait at 50 minutes.
More attractions with wait times in the 30s include Jungle Cruise at 37 minutes, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at 34 minutes, “it’s a small world” at 36 minutes, Peter Pan’s Flight at 33 minutes, Astro Orbiter at 38 minutes, and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin with 35 minutes.
Rides with average waits in the 20s include Mickey’s PhilarMagic at 23 minutes, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at 22 minutes, and Haunted Mansion at 21 minutes.
With waits in the teens, we saw The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party and The Barnstormer at 15 minutes, Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid at 18 minutes, and Tomorrowland Speedway at 16 minutes.
Just like the weeks before, there were a handful of attractions with zero minute wait times, including the Enchanted Tiki Room. The Hall of Presidents and Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse are currently under refurbishment.
A lot of the wait times fluctuated slightly except for the super popular attractions! Somehow, in Magic Kingdom at least, the wait times for some of the most popular attractions actually went DOWN.
Test Track continues to have the longest wait in EPCOT this week at 48 minutes. This time went up 10 minutes this week, but it is still nowhere near the times it used to have around the winter holidays!
Other popular attractions like Soarin‘ (42 minutes), Frozen After Ever (37 minutes), and Mission: SPACE (33 minutes) also had average wait times that went up a good amount.
The rest of EPCOT saw fairly low average wait times as usual, including Spaceship Earth with 21 minutes, Journey Into Imagination with Figment and the Gran Fiesta Tour with 11 minutes, The Seas with Nemo & Friends with 10 minutes, and Living with the Land with 8 minutes.
Similarly to past weeks, all of the films in EPCOT had a zero minute wait. That includes Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, Awesome Planet, Impressions de France, and Reflections of China. American Adventure.
The EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival kicked off last week, so it is drawing lots and lots of guests to the park! Even though the festivals tend to draw crowds towards the booths and activities, lots of guests are hitting up the attractions as well!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
The longest wait time in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is still Tower of Terror with 67 minutes. Slinky Dog Dash was right on its tail though, because it had an average of 65 minutes!
Other attractions also had wait times that increased this week like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run with 56 minutes, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at 44 minutes, and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster averaged 43 minutes.
A few attractions are below those times. Star Tours averaged 37 minutes, Toy Story Mania averaged 34 minutes, and Alien Swirling Saucers averaged 30 minutes.
Muppet*Vision 3D and Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy saw average wait times of 28 minutes which makes them the lowest in the park. Remember that Rise of the Resistance is not included in these numbers due to its virtual queue.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Both attractions in Pandora — the Land of Avatar continue to dominate for highest wait times Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This week, Na’vi River Journey had the longest wait time in ALL of Disney World with 71 minutes! It beat Flight of Passage who had a significantly lower average wait of 60 minutes.
Dinosaur had an average wait time of 37 minutes, Kilimanjaro Safaris had an average wait time of 29 minutes, Expedition Everest had an average wait time of 18 minutes, and It’s Tough to Be a Bug had an average wait time of 19 minutes despite being under refurb for a few days. For the second week in a row, Everest had a lower wait time than the It’s Tough to Be a Bug show!
Triceratop Spin continued to have the shortest wait time in the park with 10 minutes. Kali River Rapids is currently under refurbishment.
This week’s average wait times went up quite a bit from last week with the exception of Magic Kingdom! We hope this look at average wait times helps those of you prepping for a Disney trip soon. Stay tuned to DFB, and check for our weekly wait times next week!
