    Last time we were there the Pirates ride was the longest of the non-FP. We practically walked right on first thing in the morning but by 10am and on it had wait-times of 30 mins. average.

    Peter Pan can be the worst, an insane wait for a 45 - 60 second ride. I was going to time the ride last time, but that's what it seems like!

    It depends on your group and interests, but here is my list:

    POTC
    HM
    Matterhorn
    Peter Pan
    Alice In Wonderland
    Storybookland Canal Boats
    Turtle Talk With Crush (at DCA)

    Wait time depends on time of day, day of the week, and time of year. In the first couple hours of the day, and last couple hours, all rides are pretty short - 0-15 minutes.

    POTC and HM seem to max out at 35-40 minutes mid-day.

    Matterhorn maxes out at 45 minutes.

    Peter Pan maxes out at 60 minutes.

    Alice maxes out at 40 minutes.

    Storybookland maxes out at 40-50 minutes.

    TTwC is usually one show cycle, about 20 minutes max.
