    Traveling the 2nd week of Nov. Have heard that the crowds should be light. I'm curious how it impacts wait times for rides. How long of lines should I expect? Traveling with a toddler & preschooler so no thrill rides for us :)

    Hi, Melanie! You picked a great time to visit (and a great time to ask a question... because you got me! Shazam.)

    Crowds will be (relatively) tiny, especially during the first part of that week. If you're avoiding the thrill rides, you'll get extra time savings right off the bat.

    To answer your question with a simple blanket statement, yes, attraction wait times will be shorter on a lower crowd level day than a more crowded day.

    But let's peel back the onion and reek havoc on our breath:

    The time of day you choose to visit an attraction has more sway on an attraction's wait time than the crowd level from day to day. For example, if you choose to visit Peter Pan's Flight at 2:00 p.m. on a day with a low crowd level, its wait time won't be significantly less than the wait time on a more crowded day. Conversely, if you visit Peter Pan's Flight early in the day, say, within the first hour of the park being open, you'll have a significantly shorter wait than you would at 2:00 p.m.
