  • [Question] What are summer wait times usually like?

    I've been to Disneyland a bunch of times---just never in the summer. I was wondering how wait times in the summer differ from those in spring, fall, and winter.

    Thanks!

    Depends on the day, but it's pretty dang busy all summer long. Wed seems to be about the slowest of the busy.

        Normally when I go the wait times are..


        Pirates- 45 Minutes
        Haunted Mansion- 60 Minutes
        Space Mountain- 120 Minutes
        Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters- 45/50 Minutes
        Indiana Jones- 120 Minutes
        Splash Mountain- 90 Minutes
        Tower of Terror- 45 Minutes
        Soarin' Over California- 60 Minutes
        Grizzly River Run- 45 Minutes
        Big Thunder Mountain- 45 Minutes
        Star Tours- 30 Minutes



        This is normally how it is when I go, Tuesdays/Wednesdays etc during the summer.

          Since the DCA is going to be so popular with the WOC show I would add another 10 minutes to your list this summer. (just a guess)

                  Yes. Get a copy of the Annual Passholder blockout dates, and choose your visit during a time when every level of annual pass except Premium is blocked out.

                  In other words, Saturday is the best day. I kid you not.

                    The rides with longest wait times whenever you go will always be for Splash Mountain and Space Mountain. Indy can get pretty long as well. Those are the probably the most famous rides in Disneyland. Most of what DisneyFan28 said was pretty accurate for the summer except for the Haunted Mansion...I rarely ever see it go up to 60 min. It's usually about 30 min or so on a busy day most of the time, sometimes less, maybe more if it's really crowded. And when I'm there I also don't usually see Space Mountain and Indiana Jones go up to 120 min. either. It might just be because the good Lord blesses our vacations so when we go the wait times don't get too crazy. We do pray for that kind of stuff and He does listen. Summers are pretty unpredictable though so those wait times could definitely go up that high. We find that the middle of the week can at times be pretty tame concerning crowds and times when we've gone on a Sunday as well.

                      You mean today? It shouldn't be too bad. I don't know where you are from but most So Cal schools are not done yet. The only schools that let out in May are the Cal State University colleges and most junior colleges. UCLA and UC Irvine are both in session until mid June as well as almost all public grade schools and high schools.

                          Really?

                          I'm curious if others agree with this.


                          I've always told my friends and family to avoid Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays.

                          I think Disney should raise the park admission and then offer $10 discounts on most days of the year to try and even out the crowds more.

                          I hope Disney continues to offer a much less expensive "S. Cal. Select AP," though I hope families on a budget wouldn't take their older kids out of school more than a couple days a year.

                              I agree that Saturdays are incredibly light compared to Friday nights and Sundays. However, I'm not sure this applies during the entire year - I believe that during the non-summer months, local AP holders dwarf visiting tourists. But during the summer, more tourists come in and while the parks are more crowded, the relative effect of the local AP holder is not as noticeable.
