What’s Up With Rise? – Disney World Wait Times for Thursday, April 15, 2021

Share This!

Each of the Walt Disney World parks had fairly decent posted wait times, ranking in the middle of the past 30 days, so that’s the good news. Poor Rise of the Resistance, this groundbreaking attraction can’t seem to get on solid ground the past few days. Let’s take a closer look before we dive into the rest of the numbers. Boarding groups did not start getting called consistently until about 10:00 a.m. this morning. And since that time boarding groups have been called at the bottom pace of the past 7 days, which already is lower than normal to begin with. We’re sending good vibes through the Force to the hard working Cast Members over there.

    Can I ask why you assemble these stats and release them before the parks have closed? Shouldn’t evening hours affect things? I’ve been looking at posted wait times from afar in anticipation of a trip and I’m amazed by how much the times are dropping starting around 5PM every night but with stats assembled and released before there’s a chance to examine evening hours…I’m just not sure I understand the reasoning to rush this stuff out.

      Touringplans bases their crowd calendars on attraction wait times between 11 AM and 5 PM, the hours of the day when the parks are usually the most packed. I’m going to speculate that they are compiling their daily wait times article after 5 PM.
