Rise of the Resistance Has Titanic Bad Day – Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Share This!

Wait times were low across Walt Disney World today, with no park’s average posted wait time in the top half of the past month.  The big event of the day was problems over at Hollywood Studios, where Rise of the Resistance hit the proverbial iceberg.  Rise has had at least five measurable delays in calling boarding groups today, making it one of the worst days in the ride’s history.

We counted 485 of 500 guests (97%) in Hollywood Studios wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.  And we’ve got 155 actual wait times so far from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

    I’d love to see a man-on-the-street interview with the poor souls who waited 24 minutes for Walt Disney Presents.

    These wait times are horrible. When is Fastpass coming back? Or at least some version of it?!

    We counted 485 of 500 guests (97%) in Hollywood Studios wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines.

    Why are you tracking people wearing masks according to Disney’s guidelines, it would be anecdotal at best as a point in time, and you would need to publish where you viewed said people along with the times for it to be taken seriously. I assume you are going for a narrative where people are following the rules, but I guess I don’t understand why it matters. Disney won’t let you in the park without an appropriate mask, wearing them after that is all based on a point in time. It is just a funny way to open this wait time post, were the 15 people not wearing them 2 and under, were they eating a Mickey bar while stationary, were they taking a picture, were they spaced out. Based on the 15 people not wearing a mask as you stated above, do you want people to cancel their trips?

      It might help me, once I know not many people are wearing one, I might consider coming. I sure not coming if I have to wear one.
