    Re: Longest wait for a ride

    2+ hours for Space when it (originally) opened. 2nd on the list is Splash at a little under 2 hours.

    4 hours for that primo waterfront stage center sacred viewing spot for Fantasmic, does that count? Otherwise 3 hours for Rocket Rods.

    Ahhh, that explains a lot, if it was new last winter: we were going over to check it out for the first time around the same time (March or Feb) and as we walked up, we were shocked at how long the line was. Then we heard the CM who was walking down the line towards its start and saying "Folks, just so you can make an informed decision, from right about here, it's at least 45 minutes, for a THREE minute ride!" :lol: We looked at each other and decided to pass for that day, and didn't end up riding it for several months. :lol:

    As far as acutal wait in a line, I would say maybe an hour for the subs back in the day.

    The longest wait for me, yesterday, was 20 minutes for the FastPass line at the Mansion.

    But the longest was Rocket Rods...3 hours...eww!

    Maybe 45 min. for Monsters, Inc. when it was fairly new in March 2006. I've had some long waits for Autopia also. Peter Pan is always a long wait.

    Other than that, ususally not more than 15 min. because I always use FASTPASS!

    If you count DCA, it would be Soarin' Over Califonia,
    over 4 hours. It was a preview day in DCA, and the
    only thing I hadn't done in the Park.

    My friend's AP was expiring that day so we decided to head into the park not knowing that they were reopening the ride. We watched the line for a little and decided that it was moving pretty fast so we got in line. It stretched out pretty far but it actually only took us 45 min to get on the ride!

    Our very first trip to Disneyland - 2 hours and a bit more for Pirates.

    The only other thing I've EVER waited in line for longer than that has been concerts!

    Has to be Indy when the line started on Main Street. Once we got in the building the line didn't seem as bad because we had the nifty code to try to figure out! For a non-ride...8 hours for a pin on July 17th. Now that is something I will never do again!!! I'm not even a pin collector! lol

    I couldn't agree more. I thought they were lying when they said 65 minutes but you can't tell how long the line was! Never again.

    Re: Longest wait for a ride

    I can't remember because I was pretty young, but the longest wait was for Splash Mountain when it first opened. When we were in line it broke down too, so everyone sat down to wait. Then finally the CMs told us it wouldn't be working for a while and gave us all back of the line passes. It broke down when we got to the front, and we waited there for quite a while, so I'm thinking we must have been in line over 3 hours, possibly up to 4.

    Rocket Rods, about 3.5 or 4 hours. The line was nightmare. People were sleeping.

    I was there - at park opening the line was at the flag pole on main street (EE people were blocked off at the entrance to Frontierland) as soon as the rope dropped the line really moved - and we got onto the boat within 50 minutes. Later that day - we went again when the line was back to the Mark Twain and only waited 20 minutes. They had every boat running!

    For some of you who waited for several hours... WHY?? :lol: No disrespect, I just mean... was it because this was your once-in-a-blue-moon trip to DLR, or you couldn't wait until your next trip for a ride, or... what?
    On my next trip we will not wait as long for anything, but bieng the first trip, not knowing that some rides waiting areas are really hidden (roger rabbit!!) and a 2yo that wanted to ride everything......

    We walked into the park and asked the security guy what the line was and just about fainted... but we got lucky and got on the ride with a 3minute wait at about 11:30pm. It had broken down and they cleared the line but my brother-in-law went over to ask about it and the CM said they would be opening in about 10 minutes so he called us on the cell and we ran straight over and eneded up only waiting about 3 minutes. Was awesome. Longest we waited for it that week was about 35 minutes.
