Moderate Crowds – Disney World Wait Times for Saturday, March 20, 2021

Share This!

Wait times throughout Walt Disney World were moderate today, with only EPCOT’s average posted wait times reaching the top 10 for the past month.  The Magic Kingdom’s posted wait times today were the 12th-highest of the past month, but those seem to be inflated.  We’ve got almost 90 actual wait times so far from the Magic Kingdom, and those waits are averaging just 60% of the posted waits.

We received 216 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 rough day. The day started off well, with the first set of boarding groups – I think groups 1 to 14 – called around 8:40 a.m.  Things ran well until just after 10 a.m. and boarding group 29, when there was a delay of around 30 minutes in calling more groups.  A second delay in calling boarding groups happened around 1:30 p.m. at boarding group 79. That delay lasted about an hour and 10 minutes, making today the slowest pace in a week for calling boarding groups.  And a third delay around boarding group 87 at 3:10 p.m. didn’t help. At this rate, Rise of the Resistance is unlikely to call 160 boarding groups for the day.
