Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Now, let’s head over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Any guesses what ride had the longest average wait time this week? If you guessed Kilimanjaro Safaris then you’d be…WRONG! While Kilimanjaro Safaris was up there with a 34 minute wait (taking the 2nd place spot), the award for longest average wait time at Animal Kingdom this week goes to…Avatar Flight of Passage!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Finally, we end our wait times trip at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. What do you think had the longest average wait time this week? The adorable Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway? Twilight Zone Tower of Terror? Maybe Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run?
Well if you guessed any of those you’d actually be…WRONG! The ride with the longest wait time in Hollywood Studios this week was (once again) Slinky Dog Dash with an average wait time of 59 minutes.
Other rides with some longer wait times include Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at 56 minutes, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at 39 minutes, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith at 34 minutes, and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at 33 minutes.

And finally, Walt Disney Presents was at the bottom end of the list with a 15 minute wait. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance doesn’t get averaged into the wait times since it uses the Boarding Group system. Just be sure you read all the latest updates so you can give yourself the best chance possible to get a boarding group!
And that’s our look at wait times this week. Overall, our leaderboard has stayed generally the same with Splash Mountain, Test Track, Slinky Dog Dash, and Flight of Passage leading the way as being the rides with the longest wait times in each park.
Only a few rides were over the 60 minute mark this week in terms of average wait times, but things could change as summer crowds arrive. We’ll keep an eye out for more updates and let you know what we see in terms of crowd levels and wait times in the upcoming months!
