Greetings from Walt Disney World!
With Disney World’s 50th anniversary coming up in less than 2 weeks, we’re very curious about what crowds look like right now! Are people waiting until the celebration starts to visit, or trying to squeeze in a trip beforehand to watch Happily Ever After one last time? One way we look at crowd levels is through wait times, so here’s a look at all the average wait times in Disney World from this week.
Come with us to Magic Kingdom! This week, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had the longest average wait time with 42 minutes!
After that, we had Jungle Cruise at 38 minutes, Peter Pan’s Flight at 33 minutes, Haunted Mansion at 26 minutes, Astro Orbiter at 22 minutes, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at 21 minutes, and Splash Mountain at 21 minutes.
