If there’s one thing Disneyland guests have had to put up with, it’s long wait times for rides. Of course, wait times can vary depending on the season or time of day, but there are a few rides you can always count on having long queues no matter the time. Disney has done its best to lower its queue times with things like Fast Pass and Lightning Lane, but th wait times can still be daunting for folks wanting to try standby lines.
It’s actually going to get a bit worse for the next year as the closure of Splash Mountain robs Disneyland of one of its key crowd-pleasers. That means other rides in the park will take up the slack to get more visitors. These ten rides at Disneyland tend to get the longest lines the fastest, so if you want to ride them the key is to get on them early.
10. The Matterhorn
The very first Disney roller coaster has always been a popular one for the park. However, it’s been seeing an increase in wait times as the loss of Splash Mountain means guests want another mountain to “scale” in adventure. Combine that with its place near the monorail exit and perfectly set between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland, and the lines can swell pretty quickly. The fact it’s the only ride of its kind in any Magic Kingdom park, and there’s a good reason the Matterhorn remains one of the busiest rides in all of Disneyland.
