Despite rising ticket prices and efforts to fine-tune ride reservation systems, wait times at Disneyland keep going up.
An extensive analysis of lines at the Anaheim, California theme park conducted by the Los Angeles Times found that the average wait for the most popular rides in the first six months of the year was 24.4 minutes—a 28% increase over the same period in 2015.
The longest average wait time at Disneyland was for Space Mountain at 65 minutes. Over at Disney's California Adventure Park next door, the Cars-themed Radiator Springs Racers ate up the most time: 86 minutes on average.
Crowds have evidently not been deterred by the nearly 70% spike in one-day ticket prices since 2007. Those now cost $124 apiece on peak days. To address overcrowding, Disney recently introduced seasonal pricing, with tickets running $97 to $99 on low-demand days and $110 on "regular" days.
Other upcoming line-reduction measures include MaxPass, an electronic version of the Fastpass system that lets you book an appointment ahead of time at 16 of the park's attractions. With MaxPass (which will cost $10 per day), you'll be able to use your smartphone instead of standing in line for a paper ticket at a Fastpass kiosk.
Some other useful discoveries in the Los Angeles Times analysis: The day of the week with the shortest wait times is usually Thursday, while Saturday has the longest; you're most likely to encounter short lines in September and January, and really long ones in December, July, and May; and the only popular attraction where the lines were shorter in 2017 than 2015 was, for whatever reason, Splash Mountain.
