Ranking Every Ride at the Magic Kingdom – Wait times


[This is part 3 in our ongoing series. Previous parts:  Part 1.IntroPart 2. Ride Length ]

One of the biggest factors in determining what to ride at the Magic Kingdom is how long are the wait time and thus how many things can you ride in a day.  The advent of the Magic Band system is amazing.  When done correctly you can ride everything.  We have on multiple occasions ridden every ride in the park before dinner during peak summer and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween.  Below is a chart ranking the average wait times during moderately crowded dates like an average day in the summer. Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and the Peoplemover have no wait times as you virtually walk right into both.  chart wait times
