Wow – Magic Kingdom! Disney World Wait Times for Monday, December 14, 2020

Share This!

Posted wait times at the Magic Kingdom were surprisingly high today, while waits at the other three Disney parks were more moderate.  One of the surprising things about those high wait times is that it rained on and off throughout the day.  It was warm, though – I think the high hit 79 degrees today, so that might’ve had something to do with it.  (And the tomato plants I started growing in February are still producing fruit in mid-December, so added bonus there.)

We collected 182 actual wait times today from our fabulous Lines community. And we counted 487 of 500 people (97%) in the Animal Kingdom wearing masks in accordance with Disney’s guidelines.  Let’s do the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Lots of people today at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which had an average wait time today of 60 minutes. Its 7-day average is 52 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 50 minutes, so today ranks #3 for the past month.  Likewise, it was warm so folks headed to Splash Mountain next door to cool off.  Splash had an average wait time today of 52 minutes. Its 7-day average is 39 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 52 minutes, so today ranks #16 for the past month. We received 6 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 81% of the posted wait time.
