    I wondered which Will Call location has the shortest line ups generally. Should I go to one of the parks or is it better to go to the Ticket and Transportaion Center? What are the hours of these locations? Thanks!

    Hi Julie,

    I can understand your desire to skip the long lines and get inside the park. Unfortunately there is no formula to tell which location will have the shortest lines at their ticket windows. Based simply on my own observations throughout numerous trips, I personally think the Ticket and transportation Center has the longest lines on property. Since this location is the parking for the Magic Kingdom, the main hub for the monorail system, and the drop off location for numerous off property hotel shuttles, the crowds here are generally heavier throughout the day.

    Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom would be next for the longer lines. My favorite location is the back entrance to Epcot. If you have access to the back entrance into the World Showcase, the lines here are generally much shorter since the only guests using these windows are the ones coming from the Epcot resort area. If you are not able to access the back Epcot entrance, the main Epcot entrance and then Hollywood Studios would be my choice. The windows typically open approximately 60 minutes prior to the opening of the park, or as early as the earliest restaurant seating time at that park.

    No matter which park you choose, there are usually numerous windows open and even long lines seem to move quite quickly. Hope this helps!
