Findings From the Last Trip

My goal for this last trip was to see how accurate the wait times on the Dl Waits app are compared to the posted times in the park, and the actual time I waited. I’ve found a few key things.

Times on the app are usually posted times, not actual times people are waiting in the park. As you will see below, the average times are very similar. I suspect people updating the app don’t actually time themselves in line, they just updated posted times which is great! (Pretty sure only crazy people like me actually time themselves.)

Expect about 5 minutes less than the posted time. As you can see, I waited about 5 minutes less than the average posted time. There were a few times I waited a little longer but as a whole this is what I observed.

Overall, my data is very accurate just using the app I use. I feel very reassured. I was a chosen one too! This is how they make sure their times are accurate.

So what’s great about this data is the average wait time in a day is over 30 minutes at this time of year and I waited an average of 11.6 minutes. *Takes a bow*

I did it again.

  1. You realize that you can’t just leave it there. The heart and soul of scientific inquiry (if there can be such) is repetition. You have to go back to Disneyland next week and do it again,..and again…and again.
