Default A Clever Cast member - 13 min wait time

I was scanning the ride wait times Friday night on the Disney app when I saw a strange wait time for a particular ride. I had to do a double take, to make sure I was seeing it right.. I even passed the phone to my kids to ensure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing... Sure enough, some clever cast member seized the moment and decided to put in a fun and appropriate ride wait time for Tower of Terror.. I thought it was clever... BTW, the ride times on Friday were down right mind blowing.. It was as if one family and their friends were the only ones in the park. I bet everyone in the parks that day got in all the rides they wanted and then some.. 20 minutes was the longest ride time and that was on FOP.. CRAZY!!! Anyway, here's the screenshot...

Actually I see that often early in the morning for ToT. If it's under 15 minutes or so they often have the 13 minute wait time posted. I love it

We were there on Friday and pretty much everything was walk on. We road 7 dwarfs, big thunder mountain (3x), space mountain, Rock n Rollercoaster (2x), tower of Terror (3x), and Soarin. The longest we waited was 7 dwarfs and it was less than 20min. We hit our favorite rides at 3 parks and still had time for pastries at France.

It was interesting seeing the parks that empty.

This is also common on the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland. I'm not sure if I remember seeing it on Haunted Mansion in WDW.

Yep - they've done that for years at ToT.

I wonder how many people think it's actually a 13 minute wait when that's up.

I think the WDW HM just does the correct wait time down to 5 minutes.

Love the low crowds.

My Girlfriend heading down tomorrow..

I'll tell her to be on the lookout for TOT - 13 min wait time.

Love the fun stuff, Goldi
