Share This!

Wait times were low to moderate across Walt Disney World today, and it was the first in a few days without near-constant rain during the day.  I’ve been running family around Walt Disney World for the past few days, and let me tell you that I’ve never before had to wonder “What does trench foot look like?” before this week.  Wow, has it been wet.  The good news is that we managed to get a very low boarding group for Rise of the Resistance on a day in which it did not run well at all, so 6 people in our group were all able to experience the ride for the first time.

EPCOT’s wait times, and those at the Magic Kingdom, were low today.  There were higher waits at Animal Kingdom, averaging a posted wait of around 36 minutes, good for 7th-highest over the past month.  We’ve got 206 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community!  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Rise of the Resistance is having a better day than yesterday, but still will fall well below 160 boarding groups for the day.  Rise of the Resistance began calling boarding groups at 9 AM, and called them steadily for around 90 minutes. It looks like there was a pause in calling boarding groups around 11 AM at boarding group 30, and then another slowdown around boarding group 95 at 4 PM.

On Saturday, July 3, Rise of the Resistance didn’t start calling boarding groups until around 11:30 AM, around two and a half hours behind schedule.  And Rise only called around 108 boarding groups for the day, meaning around a third of the people who got boarding groups didn’t end up riding.

    Len, I did search the site before asking this question, but do you all do any qualitative research to inform the quantitative research and analysis. Specifically, why the heck are wait times for Gran Fiesta Tour trending so high? I always think of it as the one ride I can walk onto and cool off (and enjoy, because I’m a big fan of the Duck). Is it anticipatory re-theming panic (not that I’ve heard anything about it) like with Splash Mountain, only made up rather than real? I know the animatronics got refurbished recently (so the absence frightened people or they all want to see the snazzy new ones). Just curious if anyone visiting knows why it’s such a fad these days. Thanks!

      Hey Reed! You know, I was there on Saturday and couldn’t explain it. I think it’s popular now because … it’s popular? Maybe with all of the other things closed in EPCOT, people are just looking for another thing to do. And the aircon doesn’t hurt. But yeah, I can’t explain why the line is so long now.

    I appreciate this deeper analysis of what is actually going on at the parks on a crowd level. Any updates on Disneyland? We’re planning a trip and wondering how the whole “no annual passes” thing is expected to impact predicted crowd levels and wait times.
