Believe it or not, it's true. I was expecting 3+ hours. All the way down main St. and it was just over 90 minutes. (Of course all the way from Pirates to the Main St. train station is a different thing in DL compared to WDW)
According to "Mouse Tales" (killer book if you haven't ridden it.) Pirates hovers normally around 2600pph, but with all the boats on and a good crew has many times just topped 3000pph. How's that for throughput!
John: That's what the single rider line on DL's Spash is for, and CA Screamin', Soarin', and Mullholland Madness. :)

Haunted Mansion, Pirates, Spaceship Earth, all popular rides with not much line due to such a high capacity. Disney can move people through lines like nobody's business. Heck, Universe of Energy and Great Movie Ride sometimes rival Pirates in output!
Universe of Energy is a frickin' marvel. You rarely hear much about it though unless you're on a Disney fan site, its just one of those completely unique to Disney kind of rides. I can't think of any park that has anything remotely like it.
