Completely agree. I, too, have spent too much party time on those rides. We’ve walked on Barnstormer again and again. Also Dumbo and Little Mermaid. So yes, there are truly low wait times on those rides.My kids are 9 and 5 and we’ve been going to MNSSHP the last 5 years, so I’ve spent more party time than I should admit on rides like Barnstormer, Dumbo, Little Mermaid, and (gasp!) IASW. My initial love/how we got hooked on MNSSHP was no to low ride wait times, plus the parade and fireworks and all.
While others may have different experiences, ours has been that those types of rides have mostly been walk ons or very short waits. You tend to hit some longer waits as you head up the ride scale to the mountains and such, plus things like the PoC overlay, and slow loaders like the Speedway.
As far as characters, though, I don’t think you’ll find any that are “walk up” unfortunately. Even those that meet during the day (like the fab 5) will command longer waits due to their party attire. If your kiddos can hang all night, you may have luck with the Storybook characters toward the end of the evening. And those queues are open so one adult could take the kids trick or treating in the area while the adult adult waits, if they get too antsy. Have fun!!!
