As we visit our favorite restaurants, have a blast waving to our friends during the cavalcades, and shop ’till we drop at the stores, we had the time of our lives in the parks.

  1. I am in disney this weekend and those wait times are wayyyyy off! Yesterday 1/17 test track wait was between 70-90. Slinky dog was 70 minutes. Head over to magic kingdom where seven dwarfs mine train was no less than 70 minutes. Throughout the weekend wait times have been crazy. The best day with little wait times is only Wednesday and sometimes Thursday.
