More Mellow Lines – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Share This!

Wait times were middle-of-the-road across Walt Disney World today, reflecting lower crowds probably due to a non-holiday week.  Wait times at the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT all ranked around 13th- or 14-th highest over the past month, while the Studios’ waits are 8th-highest so far.  It’ll be interesting to see what impact much warmer weather has on crowds this coming weekend, when high temperatures are supposed to hit 90F.

We’ve got 198 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community.  And we counted 486 of 500 guests (97%) in EPCOT today wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad had an average wait time today of 42 minutes. Its 7-day average is 60 minutes, so today ranks #6 for this week. Its 30-day average is 49 minutes, so today ranks #17 for the past month. We received 10 actual wait times today, and the actual wait averaged 63% of the posted wait time.

Hollywood Studios wait times for Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Over at Rise of the Resistance, you just know the cast members are going “it’s hump dayyyyy“.  Rise started the morning by calling boarding groups 1 through 13 around 8:40 a.m., and things ran well for a solid couple of hours, until around 10:30 a.m. at boarding group 36.  It looks like there was a delay of around 40 minutes before calling boarding group 37.  Once boarding re-started, Rise of the Resistance continued smooth operations until around 2:50 p.m. and boarding group 92, when there was another delay of around 40 minutes.  Boarding resumed at 3:30 p.m. There’s been one more small pause in calling boarding groups – around boarding group 108 at 4:20 p.m., for around 20 minutes.

As it stands, Rise will be lucky to get to boarding group 150 today.
