When taking a trip to Disneyland Resort, any regular will tell you that there are certain ride wait times you check to judge how busy the Park is. These attractions are typically walk-ons and if the wait is long, then you know the theme park is crowded. At Disney California Adventure, that ride is The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. At Disneyland Park, it’s The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
When someone says that a ride is a walk-on, that usually means that the wait time is around 5-10 minutes — sometimes 15 if there is a crowd surge. However, if you are visiting the Parks and the waits for those rides are 30 minutes or more, then you know that the crowds are going to be higher throughout the Park. TikToker Dwats (@itsdwats) recently visited The Happiest Place on Earth and was shocked when they saw the line for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
The Winnie the Pooh attraction is located in Critter Country, along with the iconic Splash Mountain and Hungry Bear Restaurant. The area is not very large and was nearly completely taken over by the line to ride The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. They posted a video of the insane line, which you can watch below.
As you can see, the line winds through a large part of Critter Country. It even stretches down to the store, Hundred Acre Goods, and by the area typically reserved for character meet and greets. Dwats did not post how long the wait was, but based on the line, it is easy to estimate that it was over an hour wait. Waits and lines like that are typically reserved for more thrill rides like Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.
Here is more information on the Winnie the Pooh attraction, which opened in 2003 and replaced the Country Bear Jamboree.
