Crowds are bringing higher wait times to Walt Disney World ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. The Magic Kingdom and EPCOT posted their highest average wait times of the past month today, while Animal Kingdom posted its second-highest average of the past month. Hollywood Studios wasn’t less busy, either.
At the Magic Kingdom, we counted 485 of 500 people (97%) following Disney’s rules for wearing face masks. We received 116 actual wait times today. Let’s do the numbers!
Animal Kingdom Wait Times
Every Animal Kingdom attraction except Avatar Flight of Passage reached its highest average posted wait time of the month today – and Flight of Passage’s was #2 for the month.
EPCOT Wait Times
Every EPCOT attraction except Living with the Land (#15) and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros (#10) posted its highest average wait times of the month today.
Hollywood Studios Wait Times
Rise of the Resistance had another solid day of operation. Rise started calling boarding groups around 9:45 a.m. and continued almost continuously until 3 p.m. (as usual), when boarding group returns were paused for around 40 minutes. Even with that delay, boarding groups were being called earlier today than they’ve been for the past week.
Magic Kingdom Wait Times
Every major attraction at the Magic Kingdom set new monthly highs for average posted wait times today. Actual wait times we received ranged from 52% to 72% of the posted waits.
