Rain Keeps Crowds Mostly Away – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Share This!

A damp Wednesday, with afternoon rain, seems to have kept people away from Walt Disney World today.  And even then, posted waits at Hollywood Studios were off more than usual, and EPCOT’s posted wait times were way out of line again.

We received 123 actual wait times today from folks in the parks.  We counted 485 of 500 guests (97%) wearing masks at Magic Kingdom today in accordance with Disney’s guidelines, too.  Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Pirates of the Caribbean had an average wait time today of 40 minutes. Its 7-day average is 51 minutes, so today ranks #6 for this week. Its 30-day average is 47 minutes, so today ranks #23 for the past month. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 91% of the posted wait time. That’s pretty good, especially since it was raining and people needed good information to decide where to go.
