More low crowds at all four parks! Walt Disney World wait times for Friday, November 20, 2020

Share This!

 

Yet another day of low wait times at Walt Disney World. Some of those lower waits have come through expanded ride capacity at attractions such as Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Haunted Mansion, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid.  We received 143 actual wait times in line today.  And it’s the return of the attraction infographics. Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Crowds at the park were below average for the last month, with today’s average posted wait times ranking #18 out of the last 30 days. Actual wait times we got at Big Thunder and Buzz Lightyear were less than half of the posted waits.  Actual waits at Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, the Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train were closer to the posted waits.

Hollywood Studios Wait Times

With Runaway Railway’s expanded capacity, Slinky Dog Dash continues to post the highest average wait times in the park.  Actual wait times at Toy Story Mania are still running at about half the posted wait.  And Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster should be re-themed with ABBA.

Animal Kingdom Wait Times

Actual wait times we got at Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest were about half of the posted wait, which is interesting.  Actual waits we measured at Flight of Passage and DINOSAUR were closer to the posted wait.
