Disney Studios EMH was great this week. Doors opened at 08:25 every day and Crush's Coaster queue was very polite snaking through the park waiting for the chain to come down at 08:30. One morning they had the single rider queue going too.

Queues for Crush and Ratatouille did fill up quite quickly though, turning up after 08:45 would have led to a considerable wait. For some reason Aerosmith is not nearly as popular, queue was 5mins for the entire EMH.

Agree with the above that for 2 adults unless you are taking photos and enjoying some peace, the main park is a bit of a waste during that time.

Glad Iím not the only one disappointed , I really hope disney can change this especially for the amount of money you pay to stay at a Disney hotel to get the magic hours just to not be able to get on any rides at all!

Colbert , Iím glad you had a great time and you got good use out of your magic hours , the only reason why I can think rock n rollercoaster is shorter wait time is because itís a fast ride that lets a lot of people on at a time.

RnR is shorter because it's been there a lot longer and just isn't as popular as Crush and Ratatouille. People will head straight for those as they know how busy it can get later.

Peter Pan is a similar issue - people head straight for it as it gets busy.  I wouldn't be surprised if the princess pavilion is the same.

Personally I'd always head to EMT to be there right at the start - even with the old times it got busy if you didn't rock up until 9am.

I wondered if it was the theme of Rock n Rollercoaster/Aerosmith that put people off, as it wouldn't resonate with children at all and seems a bit out of place really. But it's a great ride and there were people like us leaving and rejoining the empty queue multiple times so people clearly enjoy it.

When I was about 9 I remember I went on rnr about 20 times in a row and my parents used to try and persuade me to go one another ride cause I loved t that much

However the thing that put me off was when u was waiting for the ride and you could see the countdown and the notice it made while waiting it put me off and it was only recently that Iíve built up the courage to go on it again.

Ha! Yes the first time I went I didn't know anything about the ride. So seeing Aerosmith on screen have this little demo of a 3/4 loop that just stopped midair, combined with the ridiculous launch whilst queuing, made me fear for my life.

Itís a shame because it is a great ride although having been on space mountain for the first time a few weekends ago I must say it is better than rnr. Even though Iím not the biggest fan of space themes the ride itself was amazing.
As for rnr I agree when you said it was a bit out of place. People wouldnít even know itís there because itís nowhere near the other rides and itís very hidden. Although having said that during the day when I was there it did have a wait time of 40 minutes
