EPCOT Waits #2 of the Year – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, December 30, 2020

Share This!

EPCOT’s average posted wait times today are high enough to rank as the second highest of the past year.  Take that with a grain of salt, because the actual wait times were about a third lower than the posted waits, and that’s a pretty big gap.  We counted 489 of 500 guests (98%) in EPCOT wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  And we got 139 actual wait times from Liners today. Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Here’s something interesting: We received 5 actual wait times today at Peter Pan’s Flight, and the actual wait averaged 133% of the posted wait time.  Pan’s average posted wait time today was 49 minutes. Its 7-day average is 47 minutes, so today ranks #2 for this week. Its 30-day average is 41 minutes, so today ranks #3 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 46 minutes, so today ranks #77 for the past year.

Rise of the Resistance had a solid day of operations, calling boarding groups starting at 8:30 this morning and running almost uninterrupted until now.  As I’m writing this, Rise was approaching boarding group 150, and has a good chance to get to 180 before closing.

    Hi Len,

    This may be a silly question, but as it’s been in my mind for a few weeks, I’m going to ask it.

    Is the 365-day rank out of 365? In other words, if a ride had the smallest wait time of the year, would it register “365”? Or is it out of a smaller number, due to the March-July closure, so the maximum would be (say) 270?

    Yes, I’m a math geek.

    Happy New Year.

    Phillip
