EPCOT Rope Drop Changes and More – Disney World Wait Times for Monday, June 7, 2021

Share This!

After taking a few days off, we’re back with more Walt Disney World wait times!  Average posted wait times at EPCOT and the Magic Kingdom were in the top 4 of the past month’s averages, while those waits at the Studios and Animal Kingdom were much lower.  And speaking of EPCOT, we were on hand for EPCOT’s opening today, and the opening procedure has changed in the last week: while guests were admitted into the park around 50 minutes before official opening, today we were held in the front of Future World, before Spaceship Earth, until exactly 10:30 a.m.

This could be Disney testing its procedures for the upcoming implementation of Early Theme Park Entry, in which Disney resort guests (and guests of select other resorts) will get into the parks 30 minutes before day guests.  Or it could be an operational change to get away from having to pay CMs to open the park 50 minutes in advance.  We’ll check the other parks this week and see how they’re doing.

In the meantime, the effect on EPCOT’s opening wait times looked dramatic today.  When EPCOT was opening 50 minutes early, rides like Soarin’ could process several hundred guests every 20 minutes, which smoothed out the effect of the initial wave and second wave of guests.  By opening at 10:30, EPCOT releases a larger number guests directly to the rides, which pushes up the initial wait times.  And it wasn’t helped at all today by having one of the “big 3” attractions – Frozen Ever After – closed at park opening due to mechanical issues.

In other news, we’ve got 264 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

    What was the physical effect of holding people in the front of Future World until exactly 10:30 a.m.? Were people bunched together and not observing social distancing?

    You mentioned possible testing for Early Theme Park entry. Are there rumors this will start before October 1?

    Note that this past week we have arrived at Studios on 3 different mornings to “rope drop ” , we have not found any ropes! The 9 am posted opening time is not very accurate. The park is completely open and operational by 8:15! Our ROTR boarding group 6 was called at 8:30 am yesterday (Sun 6/6).

    What about people who entered EP via the International Gateway? Did they get held somewhere until 10:30 a.m. like those who came in the front entry? Or did they get an extra few minutes (15-20?) head start to go to the attractions?
