Moderate Park Crowds – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Share This!

Average posted wait times today at Walt Disney World were between the 11th- and 14th-highest they’ve been for the past month, putting all four parks’ crowds in the middle of the pack.  Those posted wait times seem a bit inflated at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, as the actual wait times we’ve got from those parks are only around 62% of the posted wait.  Thus, a posted wait of 60 minutes would’ve resulted in an actual wait of around 37 minutes.

We counted 481 of 500 guests (96%) at the Magic Kingdom today wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  And we’ve got 172 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Magic Kingdom Wait Times

Peter Pan’s Flight had an average wait time today of 40 minutes. Its 7-day average is 37 minutes, so today ranks #2 for this week. Its 30-day average is 39 minutes, so today ranks #12 for the past month. Its 365-day average is 33 minutes, so today ranks #81 for the past year. We received 5 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 94% of the posted wait time.

Rise of the Resistance isn’t having a great Wednesday.  Rise of the Resistance began calling boarding groups today at 8:45 a.m., and ran smoothly through the morning.  At one point around 11:30 a.m., Rise of the Resistance was at its fastest pace of the past week.  That lasted until boarding group 61 at noon.  Then, Rise experienced a delay of almost an hour in calling boarding group 62.

Once Rise of the Resistance was running again, it ran well until boarding group 77 at 1:50 p.m., when there was another delay of about 25 minutes in calling more boarding groups.  And it looks like ROTR had another delay of about 25 minutes just after 3:00 p.m.  At its current pace, Rise of the Resistance should be able to get to boarding group 160 today.
