Wait, WHAT?! We’re Super Confused by This New Disney World Wait Time Trend

We go to Disney World every day. We certainly get into a routine and see a lot of the same things every day…however, we are surprised more than you might think!


Whether we spot a celebrity or we see an exciting construction update on a new attraction, the parks give us something different every time we go. However, we were NOT prepared to see the wait times data from Disney World over the past week. Let us explain.

Disney Vacation Planner

Each week we check out the average wait times at every attraction in Disney World so that if you’re about to go on a trip, you know which rides to watch out for. Even though wait times decreased quite a bit last week, they significantly jumped up over the past week…but one ride really threw us for a loop.

Spaceship Earth

Mission: SPACE, which readers have expressed as one of their least favorite rides in EPCOT, jumped up from a 32-minute average to a 63-minute average wait time. Wowza! That’s a 97% increase! Also, this is the average, meaning people waited even longer for this ride.

Mission: SPACE

That’s how you know the parks are busy! Many people skip this ride due to motion sickness as it simulates launching a rocket into space. But when the parks are that busy, even controversial rides like this can get long lines.

Take a look at that and the rest of the wait times in Disney World from the past week below.
