PHOTOS: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Reopens with Extremely Low Wait Times and Crowd Levels Throughout the Park

As Disney’s Animal Kingdom officially reopens to the public, even the most popular rides have experienced incredibly low wait times despite the current health and safety measures in place. While we made our way around the park, the highest wait time we encountered was 15 minutes! Every single ride dropped down to a 5-minute wait at some points throughout the day, which is unheard of at Walt Disney World parks, and indicative of the extremely low crowd levels right now.

Starting off the day, crowd levels at Animal Kingdom’s Guest Relations remained low and organized.

Pandora – The World of Avatar

Heading into the park, we started at Pandora – The World of Avatar, which was nearly empty, giving us the perfect opportunity to take some photos of the beautiful land.

In the past, it was rare to see the wait time for Avatar Flight of Passage drop under 2 hours. Today, it sits at 5 minutes.

Na’vi River Journey also sits at a 5-minute wait throughout the day.

Both the queue and actual ride vehicles for Kilimanjaro Safari were nearly empty.

On DINOSAUR, we were the only ones in the pre-show room and on the actual ride. As you can see, the line was empty.

Meanwhile a trip to the Himalayas on Expedition Everest was also at a low, hitting a five minute wait.

Kali River Rapids were initially a 15-minute wait, but quickly dropped down to 5 minutes.

By 12:30 in the afternoon, every single ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, including It’s Tough to be a Bug, was a 5-minute wait, as you can see below:

  1. Huh, it’s almost like the people are starting to see through Disney’s greed and recognize that they’re being scammed by the biggest corporation in the world. Good for them.
