Another day of low crowds! Disney World wait times for Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Share This!

Crowds remained low across Walt Disney World today, with EPCOT having perhaps its slowest day of the past year.  Average posted wait times across EPCOT were just 13 minutes today, and the actual wait times we got were barely half of that.  In fact, the average actual wait in line we got at Soarin’ yesterday was 7 minutes (from 9 samples with 61 minutes of total wait).  When you consider that unloading the ride and playing the safety video are probably 4 or 5 minutes together, that means that yesterday at Soarin’ you could ride almost as fast as you could walk to the attraction.

We’ve got 186 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Rise of the Resistance is running well today.  Rise of the Resistance began calling boarding groups just before 9:30 AM today.
