Holiday weekend crowds made today the busiest day of the past month at the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Animal Kingdom. Our own researchers Erin and Chrissy are still testing touring plans in the Magic Kingdom, too. Look for their report and photos shortly.
Magic Kingdom Wait Times
These attractions had their highest average standby waits of the week and month today: Astro Orbiter, Buzz Lightyear, Mad Tea Party, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, The Barnstormer, Haunted Mansion, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. If you were looking for an attraction that wasn’t experiencing peak crowds, it was Jungle Cruise. Its average posted wait of 42 minutes today was only #4 for the week, and #12 for the month.

EPCOT Wait Times
Like the Magic Kingdom, several EPCOT attractions experienced their highest average posted wait times of the past month today, including Journey Into Imagination With Figment, Living with the Land (an underrated ride, if you ask me), Mission: SPACE, Soarin‘, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Spaceship Earth, Test Track, and Frozen Ever After. One of the few attractions that didn’t experience monthly high crowds was the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. Perhaps everyone was at La Cava del Tequila, which would be completely understandable.
Hollywood Studios Wait Times
Crowds were relatively lower at Hollywood Studios today than the other parks. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway had an average wait time today of 83 minutes. Its 7-day average is 83 minutes, so today ranks #3 for this week. Its 30-day average is 83 minutes, so today ranks #15 for the past month. (It doesn’t get more average than that!) Over in Toy Story Land, Slinky Dog Dash had an average wait time today of 73 minutes. Its 7-day average is 67 minutes, so today ranks #2 for this week. Its 30-day average is 61 minutes, so today ranks #4 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 76 minutes, so today ranks #136 for the past year.
Animal Kingdom Wait Times
Every attraction at Animal Kingdom had their highest average waits of the month today. Avatar Flight of Passage had an average wait time of 71 minutes. Its 7-day average is 51 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 44 minutes, which means today ranks #1 for the past month.
Kilimanjaro Safaris had an average wait time of 27 minutes. Its 7-day average is 20 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 19 minutes, so today ranks #1 for the past month.
Along with Flight of Passage and Safaris, Dinosaur, Kali River Rapids, Expedition Everest, It’s Tough to Be a Bug!, TriceraTop Spin, and Na’vi River Journey posted monthly high wait times.
