On our Crowd Calendar we take every day of the year and rank the size of the crowds on a scale of 1 to 10. But what does that mean in terms of wait times? On this page we list each of Magic Kingdom's attractions, and then show you what the wait time will be for each crowd level.

These numbers represent the average peak wait times for each attraction — in other words, the highest waits expected for Magic Kingdom by crowd level. The numbers are the range you'll typically expect as a peak wait time.

Other Magic Kingdom attractions are frequently not very good indicators of crowds, and are not part of our Magic Kingdom Crowd Calendar forecast. An attraction that is relatively unpopular, is relatively new, cannot handle a large number of guests per hour, or whose posted wait times don't change much regardless of crowds, isn't helpful when determining how crowded the park is.

For example, it's common to see a 30-minute wait posted at Astro Orbiter most days. Why? Because Astro Orbiter is a relatively simple, not very popular, slow-loading, low capacity ride, and 30 minutes is around the most time most people are willing to wait for it, most days of the year. So Astro Orbiter isn't a good indicator of crowds, and isn't part of our 1-to-10 Magic Kingdom Crowd Calendar predictions. We show estimated wait times below for it and other rides, to give you an idea of the wait times you can expect to see at various crowd levels.

     Level 10: 60-75 min


These numbers represent minutes. We've taken the highest wait times for each day we have data, split them up by the Magic Kingdom crowd level estimate we have for those days, then calculated the average range by level.

If you're going on a day where Magic Kingdom is estimated as a '3' crowd level, the times under the '3' column will be a good estimate of the longest wait you'll see for each attraction. As you can see, some attractions vary a lot more than others.
