I just watched the DM dvd with the kids in prepartion for our upcoming October trip and we loved it! The Minions are so cute! DD just turned 5 and is tall enough to ride MM but she might be too scared. Is the ride scary at all for little ones?

Maybe intense, but scary? No. If you dont think she'll like the motion go into a stationary seat.

Will I be able to sit in the stationary seat with her or maybe my parents?

Thanks!

I haven't read through all 21 pages of this thread, so please excuse me. How are the crowd levels for this ride? Is it something you have to rush to first thing?

Right now, the ride is the highest priority. Midday waits are normally 40-60 minutes.

So, now that it's mid-october (nearly), do we have any idea what the crowds are like at opening? Is this the best thing to hit first? Do they have it running right away? What kind of wait should we expect and what time should we be at the gate. We're staying offsite -- do onsite people still have an advantage? Thanks!!

I don't know about opening, but I rode it this past Thursday at around 4 pm and the wait was 20 minutes (park closed at 5 pm for HHN).

It was my first time to ride it and I LOVED it! Of course, I loved the movie too I do miss the Chicken Dance in Jimmy Neutron though.

I got to the Studios around 4pm yesterday for HHN and the wait time was 45 minutes. I guess the Columbus Day holiday had something to do with the crowds. They were certainly at HHN last night.

I went on it twice last week. Definitely worth riding, imo! It's much better than Jimmy Neutron was, and also seemed more smoother too. It's on my must do list for future trips.

When did you ride, what were the wait times like, and did you have FOTL?

We really want to ride this at least once, just need to plan on when as we only have 1 day for both parks this trip.

There is no fotl, but the express line.
If you are staying offsite, arrive at the park early and head to D M.

You might see a short line when you go to that ride as hotel guests get early entry to the studios also.

Anyone can book the character breakfast at LaBamba and receive ee also for that park.

I am going again next April with the Family, we will be staying off site for 3 nights and doing the parks 2 days . We will head right to DM, the lines were not long at all last month so as we are going after Easter am hoping for low crowds !!

I went to the parks a cople weeks ago, and at 10 AM (was at IOA for a hour) the ride had a 15 minute wait, but that was mainly because they weren't filling up seats. When I left at 11:45, it was a 50 minute wait, so you'll wanna get here first thing.
