It's a regular day, as opposed to a value day. So, that tells me it will be more crowded. Its also the first Sunday of the new Pixar Fest promotion, so it's likely going to be quite busy.

But, really, if its the Matterhorn that matters to you, you're going to do it anyways, haha. When you get there, if you think the lines are long, you could always purchase Max Pass and that will slightly help you get on more rides.

^ Listen, it took me over forty years (truth!) and several visits to FINALLY ride even one side of the Matterhorn! Since 1975, and every visit since, the attraction had been down, usually for maintenance. And this was in the days before you could find out ahead of time in social media. Like now. :sad:

So, when I got back to the park in Sept.2016, my Early Morning was to Space Mountain first, and then immediately to
both sides of Matterhorn, lol! And after all these years.... the left side still kicks it up a bit more than the right side. :wink:

IMhO. :mickey:

Matterhorn's really great, and they have single rider lines for it, so it really doesn't matter how the lines are. In my experience, since they have 3 to a car, you get on pretty quickly in the single rider line.

^ And agreed, left side is where it's at!

Something great about riding such an aggressive coaster with only a seat belt.

I do not like Matterhorn as a coaster, at all. It's a great themed experience, and wonderfully has a single rider line, but it's rough and janky and jerky. I understand that Matterhorn is THE classic steel coaster, but I much prefer the similar Magic Kingdom Space Mountain.

You should absolutely do what it takes to get on Matterhorn, the first modern Steel Rollercoaster.

That said, I have it placed with SLC's at the very bottom of my coaster rankings. It was worse for me than Indiana Jones at Paris, probably the worst Disney coaster out there.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

I appreciated the history of The Matterhorn, and was happy to finally get on it when I visited Disneyland. Unfortunately, it beat the crap out of my back, thus ruining the experience. But still definitely try to get on it.
