Pretty Low Wait Times Today at Walt Disney World – Thursday, November 19, 2020

Share This!

All four Walt Disney World parks’ average wait times today were in the lower half of their monthly averages. And when you consider that actual wait times (we got 177 of them today!) were under 70% of the posted waits, it was even better to be in the parks today.  We counted 493 of 500 people (99%) wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines. Let’s do the numbers!

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway had an average wait time today of 49 minutes.
