10 minute wait for HP but 70 for Despicable Me?

Just checked wait times and if they're correct it shows 70 min wait for DM but only 10 min for HP. Weird!

DM is newer than FJ which is probably why the wait time is longer.

Yep, and DM can't handle as many people as HP.

It may also be related to the time of day. DM is the first thing you see on entering and walking down the main street. Hopefully the wait becomes reasonable as the day goes on. A weekday in early December should be a slow time.

We saw crazy long waits for Despicable Me this past August and that was all day long. FJ at least seems to vary unlike DM which was even packed during HHN!

Add to this the fact that people apparently lose 20 IQ points when they're loading this ride... and it's a mess. Honestly, you're told at least 3 separate times HOW to load the benches, and people still can't figure it out. It drove me crazy every time we rode this one!

DM was only 20 minutes a half hour ago. We walked on with express.

DM can only have a little under 1,000 riders per hour.
