Spring Break Begins – Disney World Wait Times for Monday, March 8, 2021

Share This!

Spring Break crowds seem to have arrived in Walt Disney World. The Magic Kingdom’s posted wait times today were the highest they’ve been in the past month, with Animal Kingdom’s waits the second-highest of the past month, and Hollywood Studios at 3%.  EPCOT’s posted waits have it as the 7th-busiest of the past month, but the actual wait times we’ve received from EPCOT today indicate those posted wait times are inflated more than usual, so take EPCOT’s posted waits with a grain of salt.

We counted 489 of 500 guests in EPCOT today wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines – that’s 98%.  And we’ve got 175 actual wait times st far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

The Haunted Mansion had an average wait time today of 41 minutes. Its 7-day average is 26 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week.

We received 6 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 56% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance is having a fair day today, with three delays so far in calling boarding groups. Rise of the Resistance began today by calling boarding groups 1 to 13 at 8:45 a.m.  Boarding group 14 followed about 15 minutes later, but it took until almost an hour after park opening – around 9:20 a.m. – for boarding group 15 to be called.

Another boarding delay happened around group 31 around 10:10 a.m., and a longer delay in calling boarding groups occurred from around 1:15 p.m. to around 2:10 p.m., at boarding group 79.  At this rate, Rise of the Resistance has a decent chance to get to boarding group 150 by the end of the day.
