If you’re planning to be in Disney World soon, there are a lot of things you need to prepare for.

You need to decide on where you want to make dining reservations, pack clothes for some warm weather, and get ready to deal with crowds. The crowds have been pretty intense lately, so let’s take a look at how bad the wait times were this week in Disney World.

Magic Kingdom

Let’s head to Magic Kingdom! This week, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had the longest average wait time with 80 minutes!

That’s your look at the average wait times around Walt Disney World this week. Compared to last week, a lot of times actually went down a little bit — which is awesome! We hope this keeps up but we are doubtful since Spring Break is on the horizon for many. Stay tuned to DFB more Disney news and updates.
