Continued Slow Down – Disney World Wait Times for Friday, April 9, 2021

Share This!

It’s a glorious Friday here in Orlando. Our team enjoyed time researching at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the EPCOT Resorts Area today. Today’s posted wait times ranked around the middle compared to the past 30 days, though Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios were towards the bottom. We received 236 actual wait times in our Lines app from our fantastic Liners community. Disney’s posted wait times were most accurate at Hollywood Studios, and least accurate at EPCOT – which is typical.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom today our team observed 480 out of 500 guests (96%) wearing their masks in accordance with Disney’s face coverings policy, including the update to allow masks to be removed for outdoor photos. Let’s hop to it and check out today’s numbers!
