Soarin and Toy Story Mania
 
I'm sure this has been asked DOZENS of times, but are there still ridiculously long waits for Soarin and Toy Story Mania? Do Fast Passes usually run out super early?

Yes, and yes.

You'll have better luck with later FP's at Soarin' than TSM. But they are both still hugely popular attractions.

Yes and Yes. FPs do go quickly!!

Soarin was a bit better last month but that's because Septmember is just dead. :laughing:

When we arrived at DHS at around 6pm in lat August, somebody offered us TSM fastpasses. They had pulled them at 11:00 am with a return time of 8:30!

According to the Disney app, right now, on an evening EMH day at EPCOT, the wait for Soarin' is listed as 80 minutes and the FP return time is 5:50-6:50 p.m. For TSM, the wait is 90 minutes and FPs are all gone for the day.

Thanks y'all! Do the lines thin at all during the parades (HS) and illuminations?

Wow. I would never wait 90 minutes for such a short ride. And we are not early park people either. We might just have to skip them. :(

As long as you don't arrive too late (e.g. after lunch), there should still be FPs left (no guarantees). So you won't have to wait in line 90 minutes, but you'll probably have to wait until near the end of the day for your FP return time.

I vote you become "early park people." You'll love it! :)

Supposedly Soarin''s wait does drop during Illuminations, but I've not personally seen it. I've never been convinced that waits for the super-headliners are affected one iota by parades.

Bumping this thread.

Really??? Soarin has long lines and a lack of FP??? We vacationed at Disneyland in August (busy season) and walked on and/or got FPs every time we wanted to. So we have to plan a different strategy if we want to ride in January? Yikes. Is the ride really different than it is in California?

I've never understood why those two attractions have such long lines. Neither one is earth-shatteringly good (to our family, anyhow). Soarin' is a neat experience, but a very short experience. And for sure, not worth the long wait.

And TSM was just "Meh" to us.

I truly don't get it....on either one. :confused3

It's the exact same ride and same movie.

It is because these two rides appeal to all ages and have little to no height requirement.

RMulieri 11-23-2012 07:53 AM

Yes and Yes
TSM is still extremely popular only because it is pretty much the only family friendly ride in DHS..Until they build another family ride in DHS , those lines will persist.Same with Soarin.It has a height requirement, but it is a tame ride the whole family can enjoy.

ScaryTales 11-23-2012 08:06 AM

I have been at HS soo much and I have still yet to ride TSM. I'm leaving again without riding it. Since I've never been on it.. Is it really worth all the hype? Please say yes.

pouncingpluto 11-23-2012 08:41 AM

TSM is extremely well done, IMO, compared to other versions of video game-type rides (like Buzz at MK and MIB at Universal, both of which are fun rides but simply aren't as technologically advanced).
