My wait time limit on most rides is 30 minutes. 40 for rides I really love like Tower of Terror.

Rides I won't wait more than 15 minutes for:

Peter Pan - I don't get it!!! Boring ride, why is there always a huge line?
Soarin - vastly overrated ride,
Small World - do I need to explain why?
Maelstrom - cool and fun, but way too short
Jungle Cruise - its ok, but well..you know.

and..any ride that does nothing more than fly me in a circle a half dozen times..ie: Dumbo, Tea Cups, Flying Carpets, Carosel...etc

oh yeah..and I will never wait for hours and stake out a spot for a parade! We skip em. with 1 exception..Main St. Electrical parade. That one I LOVE. I will wait for about 20 minutes if I can find a decent spot to view it. usually somewhere around Liberty Square.

I will not wait in line for Dumbo for more than 10-15 minutes. My sisters prefer Aladdin's Carpet ride anyways.

I will not wait in line for Robinson's Tree House.

Any line longer than 20 minutes which includes a FastPass option.

Besides that, we go at ropedrop and are able to walk the popular rides that don't have FastPasses, like Dumbo and Peter Pan.

The only ride I have never gotten to ride and want to, because the line was longer than I was willing to wait, was Astro Orbitters

I won't wait in a regular line for anything that has a FP option unless I can clearly see that people in the stand-by line are literally walking right on.

We got in the stand-by line for the Pooh ride once, because the wait time said 20 min., and we said, "Oh, 20 minutes, that's not that long." Well, first of all that estimate was off, because it was more like 30-35. And it was SO frustrating to be standing in the line and watching every single person who walked up with a FP get right on, while maybe 2-3 people from the stand-by line would go for every 10-12 people walking up with FP's.

From this experience I learned that, while I have the patience to wait in a long line, I do not have the patience to wait in a long line while watching other people NOT wait in a long line!

I TOTALLY did not realize what the OP meant.

I was all set and ready to type the rides that don't have a long wait!!!!



I was all ready to list them and then after I started reading the responses I realized oops not what the OP meant.

Sorry I need a good laugh today.

However, I do agree with several PP's about not waiting more than 30 minutes but SOMETIMES even if they do post 30 mins, its less than that, usually during the off season though.

300 minute wait on Soarin. Swear I saw that on one of our busier trips. Maybe it was just 280 minutes. Either way...

Smile I agree with many on this thread.

I do not waste my time waiting in line - unless if it's really hot outside! At times it feels good to be in the A/C - like when we wait at Soarin but mostly I will not wait.

Any line over 30 minutes is too much for me. I have waited one time in a 45 minute line for Soarin just because DS wnted to go through the normal que. We go at least once a year so it's no big deal if we don't get to do something, we know we'll get to do it again.

I refuse to wait for the parades and Fantasmic. Honestly, we just got back last night and I couldn't believe the people lined up on Main Street over an hour before the 9:00 parade. All the edges of the sidewalk were full and most places were 2-3 people deep already. I just can't wste that much park time to watch a parade. The same with Fantasmic, I just won't wait for 1 1/2 hours to watch a show. We did it once with the Fantasmic dinner package. It was good but just not worth the wait.

I will never ever stand in line for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad if the wait is over 20 minutes. It seems to be the hottest, most miserable line on the entire planet.

I will not wait in line for Astro Orbiter. There's something about being packed in like sardines on that little elevator with a bunch of sweaty bodies that gives me the creeps..

For most other rides, I will generally wait up to 30 minutes (MAYBE 45 minutes if I'm feeling patient). We've never gotten to DHS early enough to snag Fastpasses for TSM, so we've always waited a long time for this one. We don't mind too much since it's indoors. Oh and we rarely wait at Test Track...we almost always do single rider on this one. Most of the times I end up in the same car with my son or husband anyway.
