No Line, No Problem! Attractions That Never Have a Wait

Nearly every moment of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a magical one, but there are sometimes instances where the magic might seem a little further way than others. Long wait times and lines can definitely put a damper on any day in a Disney Park, but they are to be expected when it comes to popular attractions and experiences including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Test Track Presented by Chevrolet, Space Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Slinky Dog Dash, Peter Pan’s Flight, Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, and Avatar Flight of Passage.

While the lines can’t be avoided on popular attractions such as those in the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, there are other attractions and experiences throughout the Disney Parks that rarely, if ever, have a wait time. This is due in part to them being considered underrated or not as popular as their thrilling counterparts, but each of these attractions is entertaining in its own way and worth checking out!

Looking to avoid waiting in line? Be sure to check out these attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort!
