Walt Disney World Resort has been drawing in crowds this holiday season, with theme parks even hitting their limited capacity on multiple different days. But with so many different attractions in each of the four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — which Disney Park attraction was the most popular, and what was its average wait time?

From Frozen Ever After at EPCOT to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom to Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there are several different theme park attractions within each of the four Disney Parks that continuously draw crowds (and, therefore, long wait times).

So, to get to the bottom of which theme park attraction was the most popular during Christmas Week at Walt Disney World, we took the average wait times per day according to the Disney World fan Twitter account Walt Disney World Wait Times and averaged them together for the week of Sunday, December 20 – Saturday, December 26. Here is what we found.
