Disney's theme parks are always growing and always changing. The one thing that doesn't seem to change is the parks' popularity. People love them a lot. So much so that they'll wait in line for hours to go on some rides. While Disney Parks have implemented numerous features to reduce wait times, sometimes there's no better way to enjoy the attraction you want then to stand around and wait for it. Sometimes, however, the wait times can get insane.
Summer is when Disney unveils its newest rides and this year saw the unveiling of an entirely new land, the World of Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom. You can guess that the lines for those rides are going to be crazy, but how do they compare to history? Here we take a look back at some of Disney World's most popular attractions and how long people waited to experience them. A big thank you goes out to the team at TouringPlans.com. The data they've compiled in order to help tourists navigate the parks was a huge help in creating this list. For each ride, we have listed a posted wait time, which is the longest time that the park has listed the wait time to be, and a verified wait time, which is the longest confirmed time that an actual person has waited in that line. While it's possible that some wait times have actually been longer, the numbers here are the longest they could confirm since 2009.
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
Longest Posted Wait Time: 240 mins
Longest Verified Wait Time: 154 minutes, December 30, 2015
If you're a roller coaster fan, then you probably enjoy the ones that spin and loop. However, if you find yourself at Disney World, your only option is the Rock n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios. If so, we hope you're also an Aerosmith fan. To be fair, Aerosmith sounds pretty cool when blasting at high volumes on a magnetic launch roller coaster. Still, you've got to be a die-hard fan to wait four hours for Aerosmith. Even the two and a half hour verified time seems a bit long for us.
