We chat up others or talk about what we are going to do next.

If a CM is close by we ask them questions!

We have met some great people at Disney by talking to others!

I take pictures of my kids in front on interesting scenes in the que. My kids text and play games on their phones which is what they do anyway.

We don't really spend too much time in line. We usually talk, people watch, play on our phones.

We play "road trip" games:

-We choose a category (like, The Little Mermaid) and try to come up with a word relating to the category for every letter of the alphabet.
-20 questions
-One of us will choose two actors, and the other one has to try and connect them through their costars in movies. (This can get tough when you only have your memory to rely on!)
-I-Spy
-Alphabet game - try to spot things for each letter of the alphabet, in alphabetical order
-And of course, rock, paper scissors!

Last time we bought the hidden mickey book and talked out all of the hidden mickeys we could potential find in the line, during the ride, etc. It certainly helped to pass the time.

Very little time spent in lines, but when there, conversation generally.

Hidden Mickeys!

I like to get any of the "Hidden Mickey" books. Trying to find them is a great way to pass the time. "Hidden Mickeys" are a great example of the attention to detail the Imagineers possess!

DH plays silly games with my son-- squish the spider (his hand is the spider), "magic" tricks with things disappearing and reappearing. When I was younger and went to Disney with my family, we brought small camp tripod stools for sitting in long lines to give our feet a break. It was summer, we had no idea of what a touring plan was, and I remember a lot of time in line. Everyone asked where they could get one. As a teenager I just talked to my siblings and we would people watch. Mostly, DH and I have decided that we would rather go during a less busy time with our kids so the lines are short and wait time is just building anticipation for the ride and looking at the queue scenery.

If we are in line somewhere where I can get a 4g signal on my phone I will usually mess with my phone. Look on Facebook and Twitter or read the message boards.

DH is not a talker so we don't stand in line talking to each other.

But we rarely ever have to wait in lines more than 5 minutes because we go during the off season when school is in session.

Most of the time when we are in line we are in a line that is steadily moving forward so I don't do anything if that is the case. I just keep inching forward.

It's safe to say we're never in line for more than 30 minutes. But if we are we just talk to each other, either about the stuff we've done so far or what we have coming up.

Other than chit chat about the day's events we play:
*i-spy is always a hit. My kids could do that for hours, lol
*variations of guessing games like "I'm thinking of an item you find in the grocery store..."
*add-on games like "I went to Disneyland and I rode Big Thunder" with the next person saying, "I went to Disneyland, rode Big Thunder and ate churro while watching the canoes" and the 3rd person says, "I went to Disneyland and rode Big Thunder, ate a churro while watching the canoes, and had my pic taken with Pooh Bear" and around it goes.

We play "My Movie Has" ...then a clue. Everyone else can guess until they get it. Also can say like "whats it rated? Is it animated? How old is it, Is Tom Cruise in it etc.

My movie has a "vice" in it.

Then the winner gets to go, or take turns.

We normally just talk.

I know it sounds boring, but we talk about what attractions we're going to do next which is always fun, or we talk about the fun things we've already done that day.

The time of year we go, waits are short so we don't need to worry about it much...
