There were some questions about what wait times would look like at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party:
These are the waits during the first Party on September 1st. Actual waits at the Mine Train were typically five to seven minutes shorter than posted, so you’d be looking at waiting 15 to 20 minutes with the shortest waits during the first Boo to You Parade/HalloWishes and at the very end of the night. Otherwise, actual waits are typically nonexistent at most attractions regardless of which Party date you select.
Interestingly(?), there’s an inverse relationship between wait times and how many people attend a given Party. The sold out Parties, particularly toward the end of October, have shorter waits than Parties that don’t sell out earlier in the month. The rides are not the focus for the great majority of people that attend the Parties, which is why the walkways “feel” congested and there’s a two hour wait for the Dwarfs, even if you could ride Splash Mountain virtually by yourself. The good news is that it looks like the Parties will also be a good opportunity to ride the Mine Train if you weren’t able to secure a FP+ or would like to ride in the dark.
As always, a big thanks to good friends of the site Brad and Steve for making these sorts of things possible.
