I would be curious to know how Disneyland calculates wait times for their lines. Is it a super hi-tech sensor system...or maybe CM's just look down the line and pick a number? Anyone know?
System. CMs will hand off a typically red card attached to a lanyard for a guest to pass off to the CM you encounter before you board an attraction...this is how they acquire wait times - Ms.Mouseketeer1000.8 #90 8-29-11 2:56AMLike Reply
At the beginning of the line a cm hands you a lanyard with a card on the end and you hold it until your about to go on the ride and give it to a cm then they distinguish the amount in-between the hand off - CowboyWoody 7.9 #7836 8-29-11 2:57AMLike Reply
Those are called flick cards and they are used for efficiency studyies. They do not effect the posted wait times at the entrance to the attractions. - BalooTBear905.1 #101 8-29-11 7:53AMLike Reply
So if it's not the "flick cards" then maybe it is a high tech satellite laser tracking system or maybe if the line is so long and they know how fast it moves they can tell how long it will take - Tealtownfan701.8 #145 8-29-11 8:14AMLike Reply
