Did Wait Times Actually Go DOWN This Week in Disney World?!

Even though it’s spring right now, there was a LOT of talk about Disney World Halloween festivities this week!

We got some halloween goodies this week!

We’ve tried some exclusive Halfway to Halloween treats, learned that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is coming BACK, and even got a sneak peek at some merch! But, it IS only April right now, and as much as we long for those (slightly) less crowded days, the spring crowds are still out in full force in the parks. So, let’s take a look at the average wait times in Disney World this week!

Magic Kingdom

Let’s head to Magic Kingdom! This week, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had the longest average wait time with 71 minutes!
