Crowds ease off a bit – Disney World wait times for Thursday, July 22, 2021

Share This!

Average posted wait times eased off a bit today as compared to the last few days, and in many cases those posted wait times were well overstated as compared to the actual wait times we got from people in line.  At the Magic Kingdom, for example, the average posted wait time today across all attractions was around 42 minutes. That’s the 9th-highest number we’ve seen in the past year, but the 79 actual wait times we’ve got so far from the park are just 57% (so, around 24 minutes) of the posted wait.  The actual waits we’ve got at Animal Kingdom are a third lower than posted waits, too.

We’ve got 155 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community!  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!
