Live Disney World wait times are now available on the site at http://www.easywdw.com/waits. You can point your Internet browser or mobile device to that page and quickly see what the current wait times are at the various attractions – no login or subscription required. Brad Rosenbaum created the script and Matthew Turk helped out with the style. Matt is also the designer and illustrator behind the Cheat Sheet maps. Brad had emailed me a couple of questions before his trip earlier this month. I emailed him back and he included a link to the wait times script he was working on a couple emails later. I knew I had to have it. And here it is. I cannot take any credit for it.
The page is intentionally minimalistic with an emphasis on quick loading times. Click a Park.
The next page lists the attractions, locations, and wait times. The last time the wait times were updated is listed in the bottom left hand corner of the page, so you can be sure you always have the most current times available.
By default, the attractions are listed in alphabetical order. If you’d prefer, you can sort them by location or wait time by clicking the header. In the picture above, I’ve clicked “Time” which lists the attractions with the shortest waits first.
Clicking “Show others attractions” at the bottom will load attractions that may have special hours. This is helpful if you’d like to know whether Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, etc. are closing early or which attractions open later.
I’m pretty excited about this addition and what else will be possible in the future.
As far as “how it works,” that’s between me and Mickey.
