Still Busy! Walt Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Share This!

All four Walt Disney World parks continue to be busy this week.  Average posted wait times across property today all ranked in the top 5 for the past month.  We counted 482 of 500 guests (96%) at EPCOT wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  And we got 143 actual wait times from our fabulous Lines community. Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

The Haunted Mansion had an average wait time today of 30 minutes. Its 7-day average is 33 minutes, so today ranks #3 for this week. Its 30-day average is 20 minutes, so today ranks #4 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 31 minutes, so today ranks #105 for the past year. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 52% of the posted wait time.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train seems to have had a technical issue this morning – posted wait times went from 65 minutes at 9:10 a.m. to 120 minutes at 9:21 a.m.  That’s roughly the equivalent of around 1,000 people getting in line just for 7DMT in eleven minutes.  At 3 guests every six feet, that would’ve extended the existing line almost 0.4 miles in those 11 minutes.  That seems unlikely, so one of those two wait time numbers was probably off.

Hollywood Studios Wait Times

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror had an average wait time today of 94 minutes. Its 7-day average is 64 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. That high of a wait time today indicates a technical problem with the ride. We received 4 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 86% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance has had a fairly normal day of operations today. The first set of 13 boarding groups was called around 8:40 a.m., but there was a delay of around 40 minutes – until around 9:20 a.m. – for boarding group 14 and beyond to get called.  Rise of the Resistance ran smoothly after that until around 3:30 p.m., when boarding paused for around 40 minutes around group 115.  At its current rate, ROTR should approach boarding group 160 before the day ends.
