The Wait Times Are Just Getting Higher in Disney World

We’re not going to sugar coat it — the wait times in Disney World have been pretty long lately.


One day this week, we saw 7 rides with wait times over 2 hours. On another day, people were waiting up to an hour even for the less popular rides! Spring Break has definitely brought out the crowds. So, how bad were the average wait times this week in Disney World? Let’s take a look.

Magic Kingdom

The wait times went up a little in Magic Kingdom compared to last week. Jungle Cruise had an average wait time of 65 minutes, Peter Pan’s Flight was at 65 minutes, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was at 91 minutes.

  1. We were at Disneyworld during March break. Crowds were crazy during the day. I think people should not buy the pass for the special rides. Instead, ride them within the last half hour of closing. For example, we went on Rise of the Resistance 5 minutes before closing (8.55). We were out by 9:35. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Pretty much the same. If you’re willing to wait until the end of the night you can save all that money with the least amount of waiting.
