Like Molasses – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, January 27, 2021

Share This!

It’s as slow as molasses in January here in Walt Disney World.  And wouldn’t “Molasses in January” be a good name for a dessert at Festival of the Arts?  Anyway, every park’s average posted waits today were near their 30-day lows, so with average posted waits at Animal Kingdom and EPCOT at 14 minutes or less.

We counted 493 of 500 guests (99%) at Hollywood Studios wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines. And we got 66 actual wait times from our fabulous Lines community.  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Rise of the Resistance is having a pretty good day in calling boarding groups.  Rise started running around 8:45 a.m. this morning, and ran continuously until around 12:40 p.m., when boarding groups were paused at boarding group 72 for about 40 minutes.  The ride resumed around 1:20 p.m., and is currently up to boarding group 125 as I write this.
