One of the Slowest Fridays – Disney World Wait Times for Friday, January 22, 2021

Share This!

January is usually a very slow time at Walt Disney World, making it one of the periods we strongly recommend visiting. With the way things have been since the July 2020 reopening we’re used to seeing an uptick in wait times on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, but today’s wait times continue to be as low as they’ve been all week. And the actual wait times reported by our Lines app users are even lower. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios had the lowest average wait times of the past 30 days. Let’s do the numbers.

    It’s just something silly we do to see who’s paying attention 🙂 and reflect the mood we’re in (Len or myself). Past iterations include Phish, ABBA, Jimmy Buffett, and Foo Fighters.
