The Unexpected Ride Trend We Noticed in Disney World

It’s no secret that holidays draw crowds to Disney World.

Haunted Mansion

The parks just celebrated Halloween with the last Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of the season…but it wasn’t as busy as you might think! Even with the switch to holidays in Disney World, the people didn’t flock to the parks, at least according to the wait times.

After wait times went down at 50 attractions last week, that trend has continued despite the changes happening in the parks.

Take a look below at the average wait times at every Disney World attraction!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

There’s always a catch somewhere, right? Despite other wait times decreasing in the park, Slinky Dog Dash actually increased over the past week. It is still significantly lower than we’ve seen recently with an 83-minute average.
