    TSMM Wait Times?

    Hey, we're about head off on our next trip in 1 month, and I was just wondering: how long is the average wait--and peak wait--times for TSMM. I recently heard a figure of roughly 60 mins. or so being the peak time. Just wondering. Absolutely any commenting is very helpful! Thanks!

    30-55minutes usually. It really depends on how much hold time there is, and how many cars are on the circuit.

    Re: TSMM Wait Times?

    We only enjoy TSMM during the weekday portion of our trips. We usually find the wait times to be 10 to 20 minutes tops.

    Your wait time may vary...

    Re: TSMM Wait Times?

    When I was there in July, the wait time was at least 60mins (don't forget, this is a month after it opened). When I was just in WDW last week the lines were 70-80 mins. The only way I got on TSM in CA was early in the morining and I didn't get to go on it at WDW.

    Re: TSMM Wait Times?

    When we were there, waits were mostly about 45 mins. Once was 20 mins, and our local friend said that she hadn't seen them so short!

    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: TSMM Wait Times?

    If you really want to ride it but don't want to endure a 30+ minute wait, your best bet will be to get inside DCA before opening - they'll let you in around 15-30 minutes before the official opening time but will have many areas roped off. Once the rope drops at 10 am or whenever it opens for that day, head directly to TSMM.

    A lot of people will be clustered at the Grizzly River Run rope so a better route might be to go past Bug's Land and head to whereever the rope is in that region.

    Right after the Pixar Play Parade around 5:40pm-ish, there's a sudden increase on the wait time. So watch out for that.

    From my experience if they've got the extra room open and the queue filled to Mr. Potato Head the sign usually says 40 minutes, but the actual wait typically ends up being about 20-30 minutes. The line looks scary but it moves faster than you think.

    Have they managed to cut down on the breakdowns finally? Seems like they were fighting software glitches for a while after opening. I know Mr. Potato Head still has issues pretty frequently though.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    We saw him pull out his ear and it was fabulous!! We rode it 4? 5? times with no issues - once it did stop a little longer than usual and we waited a bit but nothing close to a true breakdown.
