Average queue at Disney theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom by attraction

The Disney theme parks in Orlando can be very crowded especially in the summer. Still, you really don’t have to stand in line for hours with your kids. We have already
a blog
written about how we went to the Disney parks for 11 days in the summer and never stood in line for more than half an hour. However, you do need to make a bit of a plan in advance as to what you want to see and where to go first in the various parks.

Therefore, we also wrote down the average wait time for each Disney Attraction and how long the ride takes. So it is an average and so the wait time is higher on busy days and lower on less busy days.

It mainly gives you an indication of which attractions have longer wait times and which ones have shorter wait times. Of course, you don’t need to apply for a fastpass for an attraction where the average queue is only five minutes. That’s a waste of your
fastpass
.

Below you can see the wait times for each park (year 2019) and how long a ride takes. The waiting time and duration of the ride is in minutes.
