Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain had operational issues this morning at the Magic Kingdom.  Combined with Buzz Lightyear’s closure, that reduced capacity helped drive the park’s wait times to their highest levels in the past year.  Other parks were busy too: Hollywood Studios’ average posted wait time of 48 minutes is in the top 20 days of the past year, and Animal Kingdom’s average wait of 48 minutes puts it as the 9th-highest of the past year.

We’ve got 177 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!
