Crowds Moderate – Disney World Wait Times for Monday, February 22, 2021

Share This!

Crowds dipped a bit from their weekend peaks as we start the week at Walt Disney World.  The average posted wait times at the Magic Kingdom were the 8th-highest of the past month, and that was tops for all four parks.

Although posted wait times were moderate, our Lines community was all over Walt Disney World today – we’ve got 155 actual wait times so far today!  We also counted 484 of 500 guests (97%) at EPCOT wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

It looks like posted wait times were inflated a bit at the Magic Kingdom today.  Of the 71 actual wait times we’ve received so far in that park, the average actual wait time has been just 62% of the posted wait.  It should be closer to 80%.  At 62%, a posted wait of 60 minutes at Splash Mountain would mean an actual wait of about 37 minutes.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad had a big gap in its actual vs posted waits – the average posted wait time today was 45 minutes. We received 8 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 38% of the posted wait time.  So for an average posted wait of 45 minutes, the actual wait would’ve been around 17 minutes.

Rise of the Resistance has had a decent day of operations.  Rise of the Resistance began calling boarding groups at 8:45 a.m. with groups 1 through 11.  Everything ran smoothly until boarding group 61 around 12:10 p.m.  There was a delay in Rise calling boarding group 62 until around 12:50 p.m.  Since Rise began calling boarding groups again, the ride has continued to run smoothly; it looks like Rise will be able to get to boarding group 150 or better before the end of the evening.
