When visiting Disney World, one thing you definitely want to be aware of is wait times!
We’re constantly on the My Disney Experience app to check the stand-by wait times for rides (we need to know the SECOND Splash Mountain drops under 30 minutes!), especially because there still aren’t any Fast Passes in Disney World! There are attractions that almost always have really long waits, like Flight of Passage and Slinky Dog Dash, and those that you can usually walk on, like the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. Let’s take a look at all the average wait times around Disney World this week!
Let’s start in Magic Kingdom! Splash Mountain has been the reigning champ of the longest wait times for weeks, and it held its streak this week with an average wait time of 54 minutes! That adds up, as it’s been hot in Disney World, so people want to cool off!
Following close behind is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at 51 minutes, then Jungle Cruise at 49 minutes. Jungle Cruise’s time went up 10 minutes from last week, which we suspect partially has to do with all of the new characters added to the ride! Rounding out our highest average wait times was Space Mountain at 40 minutes.
Rides in the 30s range included Pirates of the Caribbean at 34 minutes, Peter Pan’s Flight at 33 minutes, and Astro Orbiter at 30 minutes.
Down into the 20s, we had “its a small world” with a wait time of 23 minutes, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at 22 minutes, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh also at 22 minutes, and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin at 20 minutes.
There were a bunch of rides with average wait times in the teens this week! Haunted Mansion averaged an 18 minute wait, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel was at 15 minutes, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid was at 14 minutes, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover was at 13 minutes, Mad Tea Party was at 12 minutes, Mickey’s PhilharMagic was at 12 minutes, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant was at 11 minutes.
Barnstormer featuring the Great Goofini, Tomorrowland Speedway, and Magic Carpets of Aladdin all had an average 10 minute wait this week.
Shorter wait times this week included Tom Sawyer Island at 8 minutes, Liberty Square Riverboat at 7 minutes, Carousel of Progress at 4 minutes, and Country Bear Jamboree, also at 4 minutes.
And if you didn’t want to wait at ALL this week, you could’ve found an average of no wait time at Enchanted Tiki Room and Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.
All the other attractions at EPCOT had waaay lower wait times! We had The Seas with Nemo and Friends at 15 minutes, Spaceship Earth at 13 minutes, Gran Fiesta Tour at 12 minutes, Living with the Land at 12 minutes, and Journey into Imagination at 10 minutes.
The theater shows in EPCOT all had zero waits this week! These included American Adventure, Awesome Planet, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival, Impressions de France, and Reflections of China.
Moving on to Hollywood Studios, topping out the wait times this week was Slinky Dog Dash at 65 minutes. After that, we had Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at 46 minutes, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith at 44 minutes, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at 39 minutes, and Toy Story Mania at 33 minutes.
Tower of Terror has a lower average wait time this week at 28 minutes! Then we had Alien Swirling Saucers at 19 minutes, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue at 17 minutes, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy at 15 minutes, Walt Disney Presents at 13 minutes, and Muppet Vision 3D at 10 minutes.
Hollywood Studios was busy! No rides or attractions had an average of zero wait time this week.
And finally, in Animal Kingdom we had Avatar Flight of Passage with the longest wait time at 66 minutes (no surprise there). Then, significantly lower, we had Na’vi River Journey at 37 minutes, Kilimanjaro Safaris at 33 minutes, Kali River Rapids at 27 minutes, and Expedition Everest at 20 minutes.
Dinosaur had an average wait time of 19 minutes this week and It’s Tough to Be a Bug was at 11 minutes.
Rounding out the attractions at Animal Kingdom were Triceratop Spin at 5 minutes and Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail, which was at zero!
