Wait Time Forecasts For Every Day

If you’re a Lines user, you’ve probably used attraction wait time forecasts for today and tomorrow to help you plan your touring strategy.

Now on the main site, we have wait time forecasts for every attraction in Walt Disney World and Disneyland for not only today and tomorrow — but for every day in the future that Disney has released park hours (the next 6 months in WDW and 2 months in DLR).

You can access the wait times forecasts by navigating to the attraction page, and clicking on the “View Full Forecast” link on the right hand side underneath the “Current Wait Times” section (see pic above-right).

The data is only available to subscribers, but should be a huge help in preparing for your trip. You’ll not only get an estimate of the overall crowds (the Crowd Calendar), but a good idea of how long the wait times at each attraction will be for your specific dates.

Let us know what you think!

    Very cool Henry! Think this will be a great addition. Now, who is going to track the forecast vs actual? Also, how often do you anticipate these will change?

      We’re tracking historical vs. actual, and list how we do on the historical crowd calendar pages — more to come soon.

      They may change at anytime, unfortunately, and it’s hard to put a number how often a given date will change. Disney changing its park hours is the hardest thing to predict.

    OMG! This is incredible! It’s exciting to “know” when the FASTPASSes will run out for our upcoming trip and to be able to plan accordingly. Have you discovered the alchemists’ secrets of turning lead into gold too? How about the winning lottery ticket numbers? LOL! Wow, keep up the good work!

    Thanks!

    I can’t figure out how to do this on my iPad. How do I navigate to it?
