It’s Sloooowww – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Share This!

Another day of lowest-crowds-in-a-month numbers out of Walt Disney World.  That’s not unexpected – there’s no Walt Disney World Marathon this week, so it’s a midweek day in January. In a pandemic. With few hotel discounts.  Totally understandable.  And even as low as these wait time numbers are, we’re pretty sure EPCOT was even less crowded, because the actual wait times in line were less than half of the posted.

We received 108 actual wait times today from users of our Lines app.  And we counted 494 of 500 guests (99%) in the Magic Kingdom wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines. Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

To put today’s wait times in perspective, the average posted waits at Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Mad Tea Party rank as the 240th-highest, 239th-highest, and 251st-highest for the past year.  But the Magic Kingdom was closed for 112 days (reopening for cast members on July 7), so today’s waits are close to the year-long lows for those attractions.

Rise of the Resistance has had a normal day of operations while calling boarding groups.  Rise had one small delay this afternoon, for about 30 minutes starting at 2 p.m. with Boarding Group 85, and boarding groups have been called steadily since then.  Rise of the Resistance is approaching boarding group 130 as I write this.

    Seems like RotR is running smoothly on a daily basis. Hopefully its about time to ditch boarding groups and just have a standby line and a FP+ line when they come back. The queue could be closed at a certain point of the day to do the daily maintenance so that no one is allowed to enter it and everyone already in the in the queue is able to ride it.
