A resort-wide view of the daily average wait times shows (above) that typically Mondays and Tuesdays were the busiest days with the highest average wait times. The last three Sundays of the month were particularly light, thanks, in part, to the heat. The monthly average wait time, shown below, was up 1 minute over May of this year, and tied with February at 29 minutes.

Throughout June, Lightning Lane availability was quite good (Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane) at Disneyland. The graph below shows the percentage of time at each time of the day that Lightning lane was available for a given attraction (green means it was likely available at a given time, red not likely). Most attractions maintained availability up to 3 PM, at which attractions like Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, and the Matterhorn began to reach capacity on some days. Did you know that these attractions often release more Lightning Lane availability at consistent times? We track those here!
