Q: Which Walt Disney World queue lines have fun or interactive experiences?
A: Entertaining and interactive experiences in wait lines are becoming more and more the norm at Walt Disney World. You’ll find interactive or entertaining experiences at the following:
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant – now has an indoor play area for kids during the wait. Parents are given a pager that lets them know when it’s time to return to the line for their turn to ride.
- The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh – lots of games and things to occupy the minds and hands of children, and children at heart.
- Peter Pan’s Flight – not an interactive queue at this time, but definitely themed toward the story and the ride with lots to look at along the route of the line.
- Journey of the Little Mermaid – mostly heavily themed, but there are some interactive elements that are fun and carry on throughout the line.
- 7 Dwarfs Mine Train – several interactive elements in this new ride queue.
- Haunted Mansion – cool, interactive pieces as your make your way through this line. If you haven’t been through the line in a while, it’s worth checking out.
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – this line, too, has undergone some changes that make it interesting, though most people attempt a FastPass here.
- Space Mountain – I am pleased to see that this interactive queue has updated fairly recently.
- Test Track – while it may be a stretch to call this an interactive queue, there is theming along most of the way, and then you get the opportunity to design your own car.
- Soarin’ – this very popular ride almost always has impossibly long wait times. If you end up waiting, however, instead of using a FastPass, there are large screens with interactive games.
- Toy Story Midway Mania – another long wait, usually, there’s a lot to see, but not a great deal that’s interactive. There is the Mr. Potato Head Carnival Barker, who can sometimes seem interactive.
- Star Tours – themed to Star Wars in wonderful ways, this is an entertaining queue, though not particularly interactive.
- Tower of Terror – again, great theming, no interaction as you make your way to the boiler room and the service elevator.
- Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster – the theming is present but somewhat thin in most of this queue. The portion in the recording studio itself is very nice, though none of this is truly interactive.
- Dinosaur – no interaction, but some interesting theming leading to this thrill ride.
- Expedition Everest – this themed queue line takes you through the entire experience of heading out on an expedition to conquer Mt. Everest, while explaining the legend and reverence of the people of the region for the Yeti.
