An Abnormal Day for Data – Disney World Wait Times for Sunday, March 7, 2021

Share This!

We had a delay in collecting posted wait times this morning, so take the posted wait averages below with a grain of salt.  Most of the wait times we collected were from this afternoon, when waits are normally higher than in the morning.  That will skew the averages higher, making the parks look busier than they were.  And Rise of the Resistance is having one of its worst days in a while.

On the bright side, we got 121 actual wait times from our fabulous Lines community today! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had an average wait time today of 61 minutes. Its 7-day average is 59 minutes, so today ranks #2 for this week. Its 30-day average is 69 minutes, so today ranks #19 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 58 minutes, so today ranks #95 for the past year. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 77% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance had another rough day today. Rise of the Resistance normally starts calling boarding groups around 8:45 AM, but that was delayed 75 minutes today, until 10 AM.

Rise experienced its first delay of the day just after 11 AM at boarding group 27.  That delay lasted around 45 minutes.  Things ran smoothly until boarding group 81 at around 2:30 PM, when Rise of the Resistance stopped calling boarding groups for about 50 more minutes.  A third delay of around 50 minutes happened with boarding group 101 at 4:30 PM, and lasted until just before 5:30 PM.  At this point it looks like ROTR will be lucky to get to boarding group 130.

Even if FastPass+ came back tomorrow, Rise’s inability to run consistently means it would probably not offer FastPass+.  So expect boarding groups to continue for the foreseeable future.

      We were at Blizzard Beach yesterday, and didn’t do a mask count.
