Second Summer Wave! Disney World Wait Times for Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Share This!

Average posted wait times were relatively high across all four Walt Disney World theme parks today, with each park’s times in the top 7 of the past 30 days.  The Animal Kingdom’s and Hollywood Studios’ wait times were 3rd-highest of the past month, topping all four parks.  And over at the Studios, we counted just over 1,500 riders per hour at Rise of the Resistance, and that was over 15 boarding groups.  So a decent rough estimate is that each Rise of the Resistance boarding group has around 100 people in it at Walt Disney World right now.

We also have 249 actual wait times so far today from our fabulous Lines community! Let’s do the rest of the numbers!

Here’s Rise of the Resistance’s progress for today. Rise of the Resistance started calling boarding groups around 8:40 a.m. this morning, and has run steadily all day.  At this rate, Rise should be able to get past boarding group 160.  We counted 1,535 riders on ROTR between 10:45 and 11:45 a.m. today, and there were 15 boarding groups called during that time.   That 1,535/hour throughput is very close to the peak hourly capacity we’ve seen on the ride (1,578 on February 29, 2020).  We’ve heard the best hourly throughput the ride has ever had is around 1,700 riders, so hopefully this upward trend continues.

Based on our estimates from today, we think around 16,000 people should be able to get on the park’s best ride today.  Congratulations to the operations team.

    So is it looking like about 100 riders per BG now? I seem to recall that you guys said at one time you thought it was around 50. Are the ride vehicles being fully loaded now?

    Thrill Data reported Disneyland’s version got to BG 330 the other day!

    Average wait times are meaningless and give a distorted perspective. Most parks are open for 12 hours each day, but total wait times in each park can exceed 12 hours, requiring multiple days in each park to experience all of the Disney magic, and this is part of the Disney park management plan. Park guests standing in lines are not spending money, and Disney knows this and this is why some of the wait times are so long.

      Touringplans will correct me if I’m wrong, but for crowd level purposes, they look at wait times from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the hours of the day when the parks are usually the most crowded. I have always assumed that the daily crowd and wait time report only looks at those times as well. As the RotR graph for today ends at 5:00 p.m., I’m pretty sure that I’m correct, right, Len?
