What Are Your Tips for Standing in Queue?

We all know that at Walt Disney World you can spend more time standing in queue then actually riding the rides. What are your tips and tricks for making your queue time enjoyable? What are your favorite queues?

I don't wait on lines over 20 minutes. Smart phones help. Food and beverage help. Occasionally conversation with a loved one helps.

When its just DH and I, we pretty much just chat and check out the scenery and the people around us. When I travel with my niece and nephew we try to keep them occupied with word games, like name a Disney movie that starts with a specific letter, or name a Disney character for every letter in the alphabet, things like that.

I'm with the Colonel. If the wait-time sign says more than 20 minutes, I am moving on.

We have the apps for NHShorty's phone, but we didn't use them hardly at all the last trip. It may have been that crowd levels were down or maybe it was just us this trip (report is in the works, stay tuned).

People watching, chatting, Stoopid Shoe look out, are queue activities I normally do.

What's this Disney Bingo thing, DL21?

I made a bingo game for my family for walking around or standing in line some clues I did we're child on a leash, angry mom threat, find hidden Mickeys those kinda things. Just put the list in your back pocket and if you see something x it out and compare with others of your party at dinner or back at the hotel. It was a lot of fun comparing at Disneyland this is my first time trying it at WDW
