waiting in lines

It’s no secret that Disney World has been packing in the crowds. There just doesn’t seem to be a slow time anymore. This leads to the question, “how long should I plan on waiting in lines?” The old Fast Pass + system is a thing of the past and it looks like, for now, Genie + and Individual Lightning Lane are here to stay. Let’s take a look at how long standby lines have been lately for some of Disney’s most popular attractions.
