Most Disney World Rides Had LOWER Waits This Week…Except For ONE

For the second week in a row,  Walt Disney World wait times across the resort mostly trended downward over the past 7 days.

Kali River Rapids

Even eternally busy attractions like Avatar: Flight of Passage and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure saw slight decreases this week, which is interesting. However, one water ride saw a MASSIVE leap, which is a big hint that summer and its temperatures are almost here. 

Yep, Kali River Rapids in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one ride that sees relatively low waits throughout the majority of the year. The ride takes you on a river journey that leaves you SOAKING WET. Yep, prepare to get splashed on this one. When temperatures are on the rise, the wait times for this attraction typically are, too. It’s honestly refreshing in that brutal heat!
