Your Longest Disney World Wait Time Is…NOT in Hollywood Studios?!

Just when you think you’ve figured out Disney World, they change something!

Welcome to the Disney bubble!

For example, Genie+ has gone through many changes, EPCOT festival booths are opening late and crossing into other festivals, and wait time trends are fluctuating every day depending on crowd levels. Luckily, we keep track of the average wait times in Disney World and that’s what we’re here to talk about today!

A common misconception is that Disney’s Hollywood Studios is home to the longest wait time in all of Disney World. While there are many popular attractions that post long lines all day every day, the singular ride that usually has the highest average wait time is in another park — Disney’s Animal Kingdom!


Flight of Passage based on the movie Avatar is an immersive 3D ride, and you will often find the longest lines here. We also find it to be one of the most stressful rides to rope drop!

Take a look to see how it compares to the other average wait times at Disney World attractions below.

Magic Kingdom

Although wait times were trending down for the past few weeks, that path has ended. Wait times increased at almost every attraction this week! Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had the longest average wait time as usual with a 60-minute average.

Space Mountain

Here are the average weekly wait times for each ride below, from shortest to longest wait time:

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Although Rise of the Resistance used to post multi-hour-long wait times nearly every day, that is no longer the case. The biggest change we’ve noticed over the past few months is that Slinky Dog Dash’s wait time is the highest in the park, and this week the average has increased.

Wait times haven’t changed much in EPCOT since last week. Most attractions will have a short wait time like Living with the Land, Gran Fiesta Tour, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and more. We do want to warn you about Soarin’ though — Soarin’ Over California is officially back at EPCOT and the wait times have skyrocketed for that attraction!

Nemo! Nemo!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

As we mentioned above, Flight of Passage has the highest average wait time in all of Disney World again this week. It increased from a 74-minute average to a 77-minute average. Most of the other attraction wait times are pretty tame in comparison with the exception of the other Pandora ride, Na’vi River Journey.
