Share This!

Normally we love to bring you the day’s wait times and other data each evening, but thankfully our team was able to enjoy a relaxing Thanksgiving. Here’s hoping each of you had a nice holiday. This week has been a busy one, though yesterday saw a slight slow down compared to Monday and Tuesday. Let’s do the numbers.

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

As one might imagine, Magic Kingdom is a popular park on major holidays. Yesterday was a busy day, though not quite as busy as the week started. The average wait times put it as number 4 of the past 30 day average. We received 100 submitted wait times in our Lines app, so thank you to everyone for sending those in as you’re in the parks.

Its 30-day average is 37 minutes, so yesterday ranks #4 for the past month. We received 10 actual wait times yesterday, and the actual wait averaged 68% of the posted wait time.
