No Jokes It’s Not Awful in the Parks – Disney World Wait Times for Thursday, April 1, 2021

Share This!

I am really not a fan of April’s Fools Day, what about you? Sure I can take a joke, but since the invention of social media, today is just a barrage over and over. So, as much as I’d like to find some fun, silly stuff to include in today’s wait time post, I am just going to keep it it straight forward. After all, in our TouringPlans world, data is no laughing matter.

Today’s posted wait times at all four Walt Disney World theme parks were about as expected during these last few days of Spring and Easter Break. But, EPCOT and Magic Kingdom’s posted wait times were terribly inflated when compared to actual wait time data. We’re seeing this quite a bit in these two parks, which means it’s all the more reason to have our Lines app to show you the expected wait times. We received 250 actual wait times from our awesome Liners, our Lines app subscribers. At Magic Kingdom today we observed 475 out of 500 guests (95%) wearing their masks in accordance with Disney’s guidelines. This is a little lower than average. Let’s do the numbers!
