Good Attendance at Studios – Disney World Wait Times for Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Share This!

How it is December already? It seems like it was just May … for the last six months.  Anyway, wait times were low at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Animal Kingdom today, and in the top 7 for the past month at Hollywood Studios. That’s even more surprising since Runaway Railway and Tower of Terror have taken steps to increase their hourly ride capacity in the last couple of weeks.  We received 119 actual wait times today, and we counted 478 of 500 guests (96%) following Disney’s mask guidelines in EPCOT.  Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

The most interesting wait time at Magic Kingdom today was probably Big Thunder Mountain Railroad’s average posted wait 54 minutes. Its 7-day average is 48 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 47 minutes, so today ranks #4 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 51 minutes, so today ranks #84 for the past year. That’s a strong crowd for this time of year.  We received 6 actual wait times today at Big Thunder, and the actual wait averaged 79% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance had a rough middle part of the day, with a delay of almost an hour in calling boarding groups between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.  It’s unlikely they’ll get to 100 boarding groups today.
