A Slow Saturday – Disney World Wait Times for April 24, 2021

Share This!

Today’s average posted wait times were low across Walt Disney World, with no park’s average wait time ranking higher than 22nd (EPCOT) out of the past 30 days. And EPCOT’s posted waits were almost double the actual waits, so crowds there weren’t even as big as the signage was indicating.

We’ve received 224 actual wait times today from our fabulous Lines community! And we’ve got three TouringPlans staff in the Magic Kingdom this afternoon, testing different versions of touring plans to see which work best.  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid had an average wait time today of 26 minutes. Its 7-day average is 25 minutes, so today ranks #1 for this week. Its 30-day average is 22 minutes, so today ranks #4 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 20 minutes, so today ranks #84 for the past year. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 26% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance is having a pretty good run today, after getting a late start. Rise of the Resistance started calling boarding groups at 9:15 a.m. today, about 45 minutes later than normal.  But Rise has only had two small periods of downtime today (one around 11 a.m. at boarding group 37, and another for 15 minutes around 3:10 p.m. at boarding group 105).  As I write this, ROTR is on pace to call around 170 boarding groups for the day.
