When I look at MK wait times in the app on my phone, I compare “posted” to “expected” times. I am understanding the information to mean that Disney is posting a wait time of, let’s say, 60 minutes for 7DMT, but then TP is expecting that wait in that line at that particular time to be only 38 minutes. Am I understanding things correctly? Are expected times just TP predictions?
If I am, and even if Disney is liberal (overestimates the wait time), why is the TP’s expected time nearly ALWAYS far shorter than Disney’s posted times? I have been glancing at these times for a couple months now, and TP always says expected times are (usually significantly) lower than posted wait times. It’s difficult to believe that TP expected times are both so much shorter and much more accurate. It’ll be my first time to WDW, but I’ve been to DL and can remember when a Disney posted time of 30 minutes actually took 40 minutes in line.
I’m concerned that my personalized plan in MK for a morning in late Feb is far too ambitious than what could actually be accomplished in one morning (though TP says it can all get done with very very little wait).
I do believe in “the numbers”/math, but it is seeming strange to me that TP’s times are often so low.
