Proof That the Summer Crowds Have Arrived at Disney World

It’s been a weekend full of news in Disney World with refurbishments continuing in the parks, ‘Ohana noodles returning (thank goodness), and the brand new mask policy that will be coming to the parks soon.

Travel is picking up again in Orlando, and the parks are looking more and more normal. And today, we’re giving you proof that the summer crowds have arrived at Disney World from what we saw over the weekend!

Speaking of normal, summer crowds have began to return back to the way we’ve seen them in the past, even though there is still limited capacity in place. Gone are the days of shorter lines as first few weeks of summer vacation kick off with multiple families returning to the parks.

Over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we saw very long lines at popular attractions like Toy Story Mania leading guests out of the land…

…and high wait times at Tower of Terror with 50 minutes…

…and at Rock ‘N Roller Coaster with 50 minutes as well. Physical distancing markers are starting to be removed in queues around Disney World, so the lines won’t be as spread out as we’re used to.

The usually quiet Alien Swirling Saucers even got a bit busier than usual this weekend!

If you plan on heading to Disney World for summer, you’re probably going to want to plan your day accordingly! More crowds means longer waits usually (and it might switch up where you head to first)!

Disney World has announced it will continue to increase capacity over time, so we can expect the summer crowds to grow. We’ll continue to keep you updated on the latest Disney news, so stay tuned!
