Not So Black Friday – Disney World Wait Times for Friday, November 27, 2020

Share This!

Wait times at the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios were not as high as you might’ve thought.  EPCOT’s wait times were the highest of the past month, probably because today is the first day of EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays – here’s our Festival of the Holidays photo tour from today!  We received 114 actual wait times from the parks. Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Only Splash Mountain had its highest average posted wait times of the week today.  Splash’s average wait time today of 79 minutes. Its 7-day average is 66 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 53 minutes, so today ranks #1 for the past month too.

Hollywood Studios Wait Times

Average posted waits at the Studios today were the second lowest of the past month!

Hollywood Studios wait times for Friday, November 27, 2020

Rise of the Resistance had a solid day of operations. The first boarding groups were called around 9:45 a.m., and subsequent groups were called steadily until just before 2 p.m.  Boarding groups resumed around 2:30 p.m. and ran steadily until 3:45 p.m., when there was a delay of just under 30 minutes.  But the ride ops team made up ground quickly, and Rise was even with its 7-day pace by 5 p.m. today.

Animal Kingdom Wait Times

The 8 a.m. opening the day after Thanksgiving meant crowds were relatively light for the first couple of hours the park was open today.  Crowds remained steady through 6 p.m.

EPCOT Wait Times

I know EPCOT’s posted wait times were the highest of the past month, but the actual wait times we got today were barely over half of the posted waits.  So perhaps things weren’t as bad as the posted waits implied.
