Weather Keeps Crowds Low – Disney World wait times for Saturday, March 6, 2021

Share This!

Clouds and the threat of rain kept crowds away from the Disney parks this morning. As a result, posted wait times were moderate throughout Walt Disney World, with only EPCOT’s wait times barely edging up into the top half of the past month’s averages.  Even then, the actual wait times we got at EPCOT were only about 60% of the posted wait, so the posted waits were slightly overstated.

We counted 493 of 500 guests (98%) in Hollywood Studios wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines. And we’ve got 169 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community!  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 78% of the posted wait time.
