Wait Time Forecasts By Park

Yesterday we added wait time forecasts for every day in the future that we have park hours for.

Today, we’re adding a way to briefly glance at a day’s wait times by park.

Check out the following pages (or click on the “Wait Times” tab on a park page):

What you’ll see is every attraction’s wait time estimates at 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, and 10pm (the last two if the park hours permit). Clicking on each attraction will take you to its full wait time forecast for the given day. We also list the park hours, and Crowd Calendar information on the right-hand side, as well as link to other useful pages on that day (including showtimes and overall crowd info).

Overall, we now have 4 levels of granularity to view our wait time estimates:

Ultimately, we hope this will give you deeper insight into what the crowds will be like on your next trip!

Let us know if you have any questions or comments!

    I see wait time forecastes changing a lot. Is it because new data entered from each day is changing average? Assume as the crowd level for the park changes the wait times change, but times don’t seem to formula increase throughout the day and sometimes actually increase midday and lower end of day.

      Hi Ryland,

      Yes, we have been adjusting a lot of the models for our Lines predictions lately but that is not the norm. Every time we get new data that differs from what we have seen before we try to tweak things a little. The first week of January this year was unlike any we’ve seen since 2006 so we went through a mini-update.
