Share This!

Overall wait times and crowds have been pretty mild, but bumps in the road for some headliner attraction have had a cascading effect on wait times. Our team observed at EPCOT today 9 out of 500 guests that were not wearing their masks in accordance with Disney’s guidelines, and at Magic Kingdom today 13 out of 500. That means 98.2% of guests observed at EPCOT and 97.4% at Magic Kingdom were wearing their masks correctly. Finally, we received 196 actual wait time submissions in our Lines app today – thank you, Liners! Let’s dive in.

    We’ve been here all week, and the only hiccup we had was Tuesday got in virtual queue right at 7:00a and got boarding group 56 (we got BG 6 the previous day, same process). Today I have never seen a line so long at rope drop for Flight of Passage, but it seemed to move quickly… the queue stretched down the bridge to Lion King, then wrapped back up all the way to Tiffins (!?!) We rode Navi with no wait, Everest as well (everyone must have been in FoP queue), then went back and rode FoP and were done by 10:30. Lines app nailed the wait times all week, great job as always.
