    trying to find out how long each ride takes at magic kingdom and Hollywood studios.

    Dear Derrick,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    You must be getting very excited for your trip, and trying to plan your schedule! It's a bit challenging to tell you exactly how long each attraction will take, because the lines and wait times can be quite variable. Even if you have a FastPass+ for a certain attraction, you may wait a few minutes to actually get onto the attraction itself. The actual duration of the attractions also varies widely, from something like The Barnstormer that has a ride time of about thirty seconds, to something like Splash Mountain whose ride time is approximately twelve minutes. Again, there are variations in loading times and other factors that may make your time vary as well. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
