Spring Break and Easter have fizzled out, but posted wait times continue to be fairly high. At EPCOT and Magic Kingdom continue to rank at the top compared to the past 30 days, though EPCOT”s posted wait times are not that accurate compared to actual wait times. Our Lines app subscribers, our Liners, submitted 250 actual wait times today – thank you, Liners!

Rise of the Resistance Boarding Groups for April 6, 2021

Rise of the Resistance started off like a space cruiser in hyperspace. Then there was a slight gap in boarding group operations around 3:30 p.m. (sometimes used as a cleaning time), and since that time it has been within pace of the past 7 days, but not ahead. It still will probably reach boarding groups in the 180 range before the day is done.

    Trip report, 4/6 MK. I feel silly that I didn’t see how to submit wait times on the app, but still wanted to share my data manually. We ran into 3 down rides: Space, Thunder, and 7 dwarves. Overall, I wasn’t as uncomfortable in the crowds as I thought I’d be. And very thankful for my touringplans subscription to guide us. We had a few longer waits, but mostly short waits. Walked about 8 miles. Thank you touringplans!!!

    I was there as well on Tuesday. Space mountain failed first thing in the morning. We were able to ride it, but they switched us to the other track. We went on buzz, pirates and then big thunder. Pirates wait time was much higher than expected. BTMRR went down when our ride finished. Following a TP was difficult when closest rides affected wait times of other rides. I submitted wait times all day. #mmmartin
