The good news for visitors is that wait times are down across the board, from 4% to nearly 13% depending upon the park. It will be interesting to see how the changes to the Lightning Lane system and the opening of Tiana's Bayou Adventure impact the July numbers.

Was it just Disney World seeing the drop? Nope, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida wait times are also down in the 11+% range too.

What might be the cause? Less overall travel demand, more efficient park operations (i.e. better staffing levels), hot weather, and upcoming attraction openings could all be some potential factors.
