    Where can I find out how long each ride approximately takes? Thank you

    Hello, Gloria! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While you’ll generally find the duration of shows on each one’s page on the Walt Disney World Resort website, there isn’t a central location with the duration for each attraction or an official comprehensive list of all attractions' run times. If available, you’ll see “duration” on the right-hand side of the screen for attractions like For the First Time in Forever: a Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or in the description underneath the photo or photo gallery for attractions like Mickey’s PhilharMagic at Magic Kingdom Park. Other attractions (such as The Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom Park) may have the duration listed in the “Know Before You Go” section on the webpage. Please keep in mind that although this information may be posted on the Walt Disney World Resort website, it is not listed in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Some of the attractions’ durations will be listed on the Times Guide you can pick up at each Theme Park’s entrance, though.

    If there are particular attractions you’re curious about, you might also check a site like YouTube to see if you can find a video of the attraction. Many attractions have first-person point of view videos Guests have posted. In addition to checking an attraction’s duration, I’ve found this to be a good way to assess whether or not an attraction would be appropriate for my young daughter or Autistic stepson.

    Once you’re at the Theme Parks, you can also ask a Cast Member working at the attraction for an approximate duration, too. Please keep in mind that times and experiences are always subject to change, but any of these methods should at least give you a general idea of what you can expect.

    Please let us know if there are any other questions we can answer for you, Gloria. We hope to see you real soon!
