It was the busiest day of the past month at the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom today.  Seven Dwarfs Mine Train’s average posted wait time was 104 minutes. The good news is that actual wait times in line were about a third lower than the posted waits we measured.  We received 156 actual wait times from Liners today. Let’s do the numbers!

Rise of the Resistance boarding groups started at 8:30 a.m. this morning, and ran steady through 12:30 p.m., when it encountered a delay of about 50 minutes in calling boarding groups.  Once Rise resumed calling boarding groups, things ran smoothly until just before 3 p.m.  That’s the usual time for a pause in boarding groups anyway, and things started up again at 3:30 p.m.  As I write this, Rise is up to boarding group 130.
