Share This!

Although not as busy as the weekends, this week has been pretty busy with Spring Break happening in many parts of the country. EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, and Animal Kingdom all had average posted wait times in the top 10 of the past 30 days. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has implemented some procedures to increase capacity at certain attractions and it shows with its average posted wait times being towards the bottom of the past 30 days. At EPCOT, we observed 487 out of  500 guests (97%) wearing their masks in accordance with Disney’s guidelines.

We received 294 actual wait times in our Lines app from our awesome Liners! Actual wait times were about 65% of what Disney posted as the wait time, which is lower than what we typically see. These actual wait times help us show you the expected wait times to help you make better decisions in the parks, rather than relying on Disney’s inflated wait times. Let’s do the numbers!

EPCOT Wait Times

This afternoon around lunch time, it was an estimated hour wait to get into the Mexico Pavilion. This has to do with the limited capacity in the pavilion due to the narrow ramps, the marketplace, the dining, and the attraction. Being Spring Break the popularity of La Cava del Tequila has increased which contributed to the long wait to get inside the pavilion, but La Cava created an entrance into the building through a backstage entrance.
