Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom had very low average wait times on Halloween Monday while Magic Kingdom went the other way and showed average wait times above the middle point of our scale. Magic Kingdom’s busy crowds are surprising given that the park closed at 7:00 pm to day guests.

What to Expect This Week
November 6 to 12, 2016

Halloween season has officially ended and now we enter a slow period at Walt Disney World until the busy Thanksgiving season arrives at the end of the month. So far, this week looks a lot more crowded than usual and it appear that the influence of Jersey Week is more significant this year than in years past.
