Coolest Lines at Disneyland

Everyone wants to go to the Disneyland Resort on days when the ride lines and wait times are short. When we go to Disneyland we use apps to tell us how long the lines are at our favorite rides, before we even get in line. It’s good to know what to expect.

But a wait time of 20-45 minutes is not a deal breaker when it comes to some attractions. In fact, you almost need the time to appreciate the whole gestalt.

There are certain rides at Disneyland where waiting in line is part of the ride experience. When the wait time is an hour or less, we’ll still happily head to these rides.

Did you know there are rides that sell refreshments to you while you wait? Want to know which rides my kids will stand in line for twice? Which rides show films while you wait? Click through to find out.

Here’s a round up of our favorite ride lines at Disneyland!
