Let’s face it: you could be waiting in some LONG lines in Disney World.
And while we love bringing ya tips and tricks to help minimize those waits, sometimes it’s unavoidable — especially if you want to experience popular attractions. But you should at least know what to expect! So here are the 3 rides in Disney World that have had the LONGEST lines — so far — this year.
Avatar: Flight of Passage
No shocker here — Flight of Passage has been wildly popular since it opened in 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The ride uses some truly amazing technology to simulate flying on the back of a banshee, and it seems like people just can’t get enough.
We recommend hopping in line for this one right at park open or close, when the lines are a bit shorter. But no matter how ya slice it, you probably will end up waiting a while to ride (the average so far this year is 56 minutes!). Is it worth it? Most people seem to think so!
Slinky Dog Dash
Over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Slinky Dog Dash is another BIG draw for crowds. It’s still relatively new as far as rides go — it opened in 2018 with the Toy Story Land expansion — and is a popular pick for families.
We’re gonna be real: this is a tough line to wait in, especially in the summer, because it’s almost entirely outdoors. So just keep that in mind if you’re buckling down for the hour+ queue! So far this year, it’s averaged at exactly 60 minutes.
Tower of Terror
Lastly, Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a super popular thrill ride. You’ll plummet 13 floors in a broken elevator as you visit The Twilight Zone!
The good thing about this queue is that it’s very well-themed, so you’ll have lots to look at (including some pretty cool details!). And if you want to ride this Hollywood Studios must-do — well, you’ll just have to grin and bear that long wait! It’s averaged out at 57 minutes so far in 2021.
All of these wait times have averaged around an hour so far this year, so budget your time if you want to hop on these rides. We’ve also got some great tips for avoiding long waits, even for Disney’s most popular attractions — so you may be able to whittle that time down a little!
