    This is our first time to us crazy we are coming with a 4 year old and 2 year old! Can you tell me what the wait time could be expected to enter the park? We already have our pasees...but I keep hearing the lines to get in can be long.

    Hello Bethany!!!

    I don't think you are crazy at all!  My wife and I bring five kids under the age of 11 every year, and we absolutely LOVE IT!!!  And I KNOW you will love it as well!!!

    The wait times to enter each Disney Theme Park are dependent on the time of year you are planning your vacation and the time you arrive at each park.  During the peak months (Summer and Holidays), there can be a long wait to the enter the park.  It takes so long because there are security guards checking the bags of each guest. 

    The other factor is the time you arrive at each Disney Theme Park.  If you arrive before the parks open, then there will not be a long wait.  If you arrive at a particular park an hour AFTER the park has opened, then you will be waiting to enter.  I HIGHLY recommend arriving at each Disney Theme Park early!  This gives you a jump start on your MAGICAL day! 

    I would say the LONGEST we ever had to wait to enter any park was 20 minutes.  While that can be seen as a long time to wait, the Cast Members work really hard to move the lines as quickly as possible.

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
