6 Disney Rides You Might Be Able To Ride Over And Over (Short Lines!)

Who doesn’t love a short line at Disney? The length of a line often makes or breaks your magical experience. While I love Avatar Flight of Passage, Slinky Dog Dash, and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train as much as the next guy, I can’t always sacrifice hours of wait time. So when I’m looking for a nice relaxing day at the parks, I usually head for some of these short line rides. Now, I know that FastPass+ has messed up some of these wait times and what we’ve come to expect, but this list reflects just a typical day in the park.

6. Mickey’s PhilharMagic

Okay, so this one is an attraction, I know. But it’s a great option for someone who wants an easy, relaxing break. This ride does have the possibility of getting a back up, but more often than not you can walk right on. PhilharMagic isn’t usually the majority’s first choice, so if you head straight there early in the day, you’ll have no problem going on and on!

5. Muppet*Vision 3D

This is another attraction, technically, but it rarely has a line now a days. Because the theatre is so big and the demand isn’t very large, you’ll have no problem going on Muppets over and over. I don’t usually see the line extend outside, it mostly stays in the pre-show/prop room, but there’s actually a lot to look at out there. Even if the line is manageable, take a peak around the corner at the Muppet-style movie posters: you won’t be disappointed!

4. Living With the Land

Who said The Land only had Soarin’ going for it? Living With the Land is a short boat ride tour around the facility where guests get to see how vegetables and fish are farmed for food around Disney property. I have found that this educational ride often has a short line, my guess is because most people are too preoccupied with Soarin.’ But it’s really cool to see how part of delicious magic of Disney comes alive.

3. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress

It’s a great, short, beautiful queue line! Carousel of Progress is so great, isn’t it? It’s such a classic ride that is perfect for sentimentality and for taking a break from the Magic Kingdom day. This ride has multiple scenes with auditorium type seating that circles it. Because of this format, the ride can take in a huge group of people, which means that there’s rarely a line. If you maybe need a bit of a rest or some quality air conditioning or you just can’t get that song out of your head, this is the ride for you!

2. Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

The People Mover rocks because it is constantly in motion. The cars move together in a way that provides a hop-on-hop-off system. It’s awesome. I wish all rides were like that. A line occasionally builds on the ground before you start up the conveyor walkway, but even if it does, it moves. I could do this ride over and over again because it’s so relaxing, relatively long, and provides some awesome views of the park. So if your nap wasn’t long enough the first time, just hop back into that ever-moving line and go again!

1. Journey Into Imagination With Figment

Figment is a classic Epcot ride. It has been redone since first opening in 1983, which was a bit controversial. But the ride remains a nostalgic, happy 5 minutes into the imagination. I don’t think I have ever seen Figment with a longer than 5 minute wait. They have a very long queue area that rarely gets used. My family usually goes on this ride when we want to be reminded of my grandma who adored it, or when we need an air-conditioned break. So if you’re looking for a nice, little break too, I highly recommend this one.
