    The line for this attraction was - Try to save this until early evening. Not only is it cooler but the line has less than a 75 min. wait time.

    I really liked the ride, but it's not worth a 75 minute wait. Either open the park and ride, FP it or by-pass it. It's a great ride once.

    My DDs and a friend went on 8/4 and got there right before 9 AM by the time they reached the ride it was a 2 hour wait. Being teenagers, they stayed all day and during Wishes the wait time was down to 30 Minutes! (Yes, they rode both times.)

    one suggestion and we've done this at toys story in HS, if you are not in any hurry to get home, is to get in line right before the park closes. They will let you get in line up until closing time,. Usually that late in the day the lines are a little shorter but you can wait in line and by the time you ride, the mad rush down main street has thinned out and you have an easier time exiting the park.

    ooohhh, how do you get a by-pass? is that like getting 2 (bi) fastpasses for it? or is one a Fp and one a standby fp, and then you could get in another line to get a 4th fp at a kiosk, unless there are too many people getting in the kiosk line at which point you'll get a ticket telling you when you can return to the kiosk line to get a fp for the fp line because there are too many people waiting/with return standby tickets to justify trying to get in the standby line.............

    at which point your head explodes

    Pretty sure by-pass just meant skip. Skip it.

    Late evening is the best time for 7 dwarfs.

    For example, on a recent summer evening we were able to ride twice in about a half hour at 11:30 pm.

    The posted wait time was 80 minutes but the actual wait was 20 mins the first time and 10 for the 2nd trip.

    This is a much better use of time than trying to deal with the morning rope drop mess.
