Easter Crowds Ebb – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Share This!

It appears as if Easter crowds have started to head back home, marking the beginning of the end of the 2021 Spring Break season.  Average wait times at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom were moderate to low.  I’m still not sure I trust any of the numbers coming out of EPCOT these days.

We’ve received 206 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community. And we counted 487 of 500 guests (97%) wearing masks at Hollywood Studios according to Disney’s guidelines. Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Pirates of the Caribbean had an average wait time today of 52 minutes. Its 7-day average is 54 minutes, so today ranks #4 for this week. Its 30-day average is 55 minutes, so today ranks #23 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 44 minutes, so today ranks #86 for the past year. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 81% of the posted wait time.

Hollywood Studios Wait Times

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror had an average wait time today of 50 minutes. Its 7-day average is 62 minutes, so today ranks #6 for this week. Its 30-day average is 67 minutes, so today ranks #29 for the past month.  We received 4 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 88% of the posted wait time.  For what it’s worth, we think Tower of Terror is running at about 55% of its pre-pandemic capacity, probably due to maintenance issues.

Rise of the Resistance continues its impressive recent run of stability.   Rise of the Resistance began calling boarding groups at 8:30 a.m. today, and has run steadily since then.  As I write this, Rise is up to boarding group 150 and should make it over 180 by the end of the day.
