Shortest Attractions at Disney World


When you’re at Walt Disney World, the bright lights and awesome attention to detail could blind even the best of us into standing in a multi-hour line for an experience that may only be a couple of minutes long. It’s integral to know that not every attraction is made the same…

Stage Shows

Broadway-style shows (Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage & Finding Nemo – The Musical as examples) which run around 30 minutes per performance.

3D Movies

Most of the 3D experiences at Disney run between 8 minutes (It’s Tough to be a Bug) to 17 minutes (Muppet Vision 3D)

Boat Rides

Spending 10.5 minutes on it’s a Small World is an entirely different timeframe than spending 8.5 minutes on Pirates of the Caribbean (I wonder why?;))

Well here’s the list of the Shortest Attractions at Walt Disney World
