Description And Comments

Alien Swirling Saucers is themed around Toy Story’s vending-machine aliens and their obsession with The Claw. About a dozen ride cars move, whiplike, in a figure-eight around two circular tracks embedded in the ground. The ride experience is actually much milder than the Magic Kingdom's Mad Tea Party.

Touring Tips

For the shortest waits, ride during the first 30 minutes or last hour the park is open. Consider skipping the Saucers if the wait exceeds 20 minutes.

This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Alien Swirling Saucers when you visit on a day with a given Disney's Hollywood Studios Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will be at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Alien Swirling Saucers Wait Times.
