Spring Break Crowds Are ALREADY in Disney World!

It’s that time again! We’re checking out the weekly wait times!

Frontierland Crowds

Wait times were low for a while, but last week we saw that crowds are certainly returning to Disney World. This week, times have remained pretty high, and with Spring Break around the corner, we don’t expect them to go down anytime soon. Without further ado, let’s check out the average wait times this week in ALL four parks!

Magic Kingdom

Last week, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had the longest wait in Magic Kingdom and in all of Disney World. It continues the winning streak with 73 minutes. It only went down by 1-minute this week, so this attraction is still pretty busy!

Other wait times for thrill rides include Space Mountain and Splash Mountain averaging 44 minutes (which is 19 minutes lower than last week for Splash), and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad averaged 51 minutes. Last week, Splash Mountain jumped up by 20 minutes, and this week it went DOWN by 19 minutes! This is one of the few rides that really depends on the weather. Other high wait times include Pirates of the Caribbean at 52 minutes, and Jungle Cruise and “it’s a small world” at 40 minutes.

Pirates of the Caribbean Line

Attractions with wait times in the 30s include and Peter Pan’s Flight and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin with 36 minutes, Astro Orbiter at 37 minutes, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at 39 minutes.

With waits in the teens, we saw The Magic Carpets of Aladdin at 18 minutes, Mad Tea Party and Tomorrowland Speedway at 16 minutes, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant at 17 minutes.

An attraction with a pretty short wait time is the Carousel of Progress and Country Bear Jamboree at 12 minutes.

Just like the weeks before, there were a handful of attractions with zero minute wait times, including Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, and Enchanted Tiki Room. The Hall of Presidents is currently under refurbishment.

The crowds are certainly picking up in Disney World, and these wait times in Magic Kingdom reflect that!

Test Track continues to have the longest wait in EPCOT this week at 58 minutes. This wait time only went WAY down, since it was a 71-minute wait last week! Nevertheless, it is still the longest in the park.

Other popular attractions like Soarin‘ (43 minutes), Frozen After Ever (36 minutes), and Mission: SPACE (33 minutes) also had average wait times that went down by a bit.

Mission Space

The rest of EPCOT saw fairly average wait times as usual, including Spaceship Earth with 21 minutes, Journey Into Imagination with Figment with 17 minutes, The Seas with Nemo & Friends and the Gran Fiesta Tour with 11 minutes, and Living with the Land with 9 minutes.

Living with the Land

Just like past weeks, all of the films in EPCOT had a zero minute wait, which includes Disney and Pixar Short Film FestivalBeauty and the Beast Sing-AlongAwesome PlanetImpressions de France, and Reflections of China. American Adventure.

American Adventure Pavilion

As EPCOT wait times tend to do, these attractions only fluctuated a little bit this week with the exception of the popular rides. Even though the Festival of the Arts ended on Monday, the wait times for attractions went way down. This could possibly be because EPCOT is between festivals so people are waiting to visit until the 2021 Flower and Garden Festival debuts.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The longest wait time in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is now Tower of Terror with 69 minutes. This time took the top spot from Slinky Dog Dash, who had an average of 66-minutes this week. Slinky was above Tower of Terror last time, but that didn’t last long.

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run was not far behind with 59 minutes. Other longer average wait times in this park include Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at 49 minutes, and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster averaged 42 minutes.

Below those times we’ve got Star Tours at 35 minutes, Alien Swirling Saucers averaged 30 minutes, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy averaged 29 minutes, and Toy Story Mania averaged 34 minutes.

Muppet*Vision 3D saw an average wait time of 28 minutes which makes it the lowest in the park. Keep in mind that Rise of the Resistance is not included in these numbers due to its virtual queue.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Both attractions in Pandora — the Land of Avatar continue to dominate Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Flight of Passage has become a super long wait again at 61 minutes this week, but Na’vi River Journey took the crown with 69 minutes. Last week, Flight of Passage was on top, but the slow-loading boat ride is the longest in the park again.
