If you’ve visited Disney World recently, you’ve probably noticed that every day is VERY different.
Can you believe 2022 is halfway over?!
We feel like it was just January, but then we blinked, and now it’s July! Pretty soon, Halloween festivities will start appearing in the parks (yup, seriously!). But for now, we can still enjoy the summer and those lovely long wait times that come with the season. Let’s take a look at the average wait times from this week in Disney World!
Disney previously announced that Splash Mountain at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World would be rethemed to be a The Princess and the Frog-themed ride, and now we’ve got some BIG updates on this reimagined attraction.
We’ve already seen some concept art, and heard a bit about the characters coming to the rethemed ride, and we got a potential opening date from the voice behind Tiana. Disney also shared that more details about the retheme would be released during ESSENCE Fest, a special festival taking place in New Orleans. We were able to attend ESSENCE Fest and now we’ve got some huge news to share!
Of all the projects in the works at Disneyland and Disney World (and there are a lot of them!), one of the most highly anticipated is the Splash Mountain re-theme. Disney announced in July 2020 that the attraction would get a Princess and the Frog makeover on both coasts, but they didn’t give many details about WHEN the re-theme would take place.
We’ve seen several updates about this project since then, including some awesome concept art and more details about the story and characters. But Disney has been mysteriously silent about the timeline for the re-theme — UNTIL NOW. We finally have a DATE for Splash Mountain’s Princess and the Frog transformation!
Are there any rides in Disney World that you would wait for no matter HOW long the wait time was?
Maybe it’s Tower of Terror, Rise of the Resistance, Space Mountain, Frozen Ever After, or even Living with the Land (we see you!). Whichever ride it is, we can bet that even though you would wait in a long line, you would probably rather not. That’s when you turn to Disney Genie+ or rope dropping to help out! So, which rides do you need to have a plan for to avoid a super long wait? Let’s take a look at the average wait times from this week in Disney World to find out!
If you’ve been waiting for some big updates about The Princess and the Frog retheme coming to the Splash Mountain ride in the Disney parks, there’s an important set of dates you need to mark down.
Way back in 2020, Disney first announced that Splash Mountain would be transformed into a ride themed to The Princess and the Frog. Since that time, we’ve gotten a brief look at some concept art, some more details about the ride, information about new characters that will appear, and more. But now we’ve got an exciting update!
There are some pretty cool queues in Disney World! Seriously, some of the theming is SO intricate, like on Rise of the Resistance and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Then, there are queues that are interactive, like over at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Peter Pan’s Flight.
These rides definitely reign superior to those that are almost completely outside with nothing to do, or for those where you’re basically just standing in the dark (looking at you, The Seas with Nemo and Friends!). Luckily, the rides with the longest wait times usually (not always) tend to have pretty interesting queues. So, let’s take a look at which lines you’ll be spending the most time in line at in Disney World soon by checking out last week’s wait times!
When Disney announced in June 2020 that the popular attraction Splash Mountain would be closed and rethemed into a new attraction inspired by Disney’s film, The Princess and the Frog, we couldn’t wait to see what the Imagineers had in store.
Just what would this historic retheme look like, and how would Disney keep the aspects of what so many guests have loved about Splash Mountain over the years? Disney is keeping the details hush-hush, but now we know who is spearheading the project and WHEN we’ll get more information about the re-theme — thanks to a new interview with one of the Imagineers behind the attraction’s update!
As many Disney World fans know, there is a LOT more to do in the parks than just go on rides!
You can shop for merch, eat delicious food, watch fun shows, go on exciting scavenger hunts, and meet some of your favorite characters. But, let’s face it — the rides are a BIG deal in the parks, which is why you see those high wait times! With summer here, that usually means big crowds, so let’s check out how bad the wait times were this past week in Disney World.
Do you ever wonder HOW much time you spend waiting in line in Disney World?
It’s obviously different for everyone, depending on what you decide to do during your trip. But, you probably end up waiting in more lines than you think you will — lines to check-in to your hotel, for transportation, to scan into the parks, to check-out of stores, for quick-service food, for the bathroom, and obviously, for rides. Ride lines can be a huge time suck during your trip, so let’s take a look at the average wait times from this week in Disney World to get an idea of how much time YOU could spend waiting for your favorite attractions soon!
