A Slow Wednesday – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, January 20, 2021

Share This!

A cool morning and an historic inauguration in Washington, D.C., may have kept guests out of the parks today. As a result, EPCOT and Animal Kingdom had one of their slowest days of the past year, with average posted wait times under 15 minutes.  In fact, Frozen Ever After may have seen its slowest day of the past year today.  We counted 494 of 500 guests (99%) at Disney Springs wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

This was one of the slowest days of the past year at Haunted Mansion.  The Mansion’s average posted wait time today was 8 minutes. Its 365-day average is 35 minutes, so today ranks #241 for the past year (not counting the 112 days the park was closed in 2020).

Rise of the Resistance has had a decent day of operations so far, with only one delay in calling boarding groups.  That delay came around boarding group 119 at around 3:15 p.m., and the delay in calling new boarding groups lasted for about 40 minutes, until just before 4 p.m.  The last hour has been shaky, so Rise’s current trajectory has it calling anywhere from 140 to 160 boarding groups today.
