EPCOT attraction wait times dropped off considerably today, after the official start of the Food & Wine Festival yesterday.  EPCOT’s average posted wait time was 25 minutes today, which was 5th-lowest of the past month, and in the bottom half of daily wait times over the past year.  And even then, EPCOT’s posted wait times were more than 50% higher than your actual wait in line.  Posted waits were higher at Magic Kingdom, but still overstated the actual wait time in line by a considerable amount.  And posted wait times were more moderate at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.

We’ve got 175 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!
