Visitors who did not have FastPasses waited in stand-by lines an average of about 2 hours and 15 minutes in June, according to Testa’s numbers. He bases those on a rolling average, which helps eliminate outliers, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the busiest time of day, he said.
Through Touring Plans, Testa’s 140,000 paying subscribers (plus half a million who use his website for free) feed him data. He’s collected 20 million data points to guide his analysis, he said.
Fast forward to Dec. 16, a Saturday, about 6 p.m., the wait time hit 6½ hours — the highest Testa has ever recorded, beating the previous 305-minute wait for Soarin’ Over California at Epcot.
We managed to go on "Flight of Passage" twice during our last trip in Dec. 2017. It is certainly a spectacular attraction. But is it worth a wait that long? It appears that many people standing in line for hours seem to think so.
But the Na'vi River ride? Not worth the wait more than 20 minutes.
