Spring Break continues to churn along. All Walt Disney World theme parks had average posted wait times in the top 10 of the past 30 days, with the exception of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Rise of the Resistance has been running smoothly in recent days and that seems to have contributed to better wait times throughout the park.
