Now for those wondering about the old lines being "longer" pre-fastpass...lets ask this: was "longer" defined by wait time or by number of people in line?
I know on my second CP Jungle Cruise & Splash were updated to the new fast pass system. We didn't have FastPass for a week. Suddenly our daily waits of 45-60 mins went away. We hit about 20-25 each day. Our waits were clearly shorter. However, if you looked at our lines, we ran probably 6 to 7 sections of queue each day. On the typical day with fast pass, we run 4 on average, maybe 5 to 6 after parade.
So we ran shorter lines but there were more people in each of them.
So lines may be "longer" in pure lenght of measurement. But time-wise, while Pre-FP lines COULD be as long as they are now, on average they were not.
