Can anyone see the actual times live or is it a super secret shhhh thing?I'm pretty sure all theme parks do this at one point or another, as a way to distribute guests through the park.
Here's Space Mountain on New Year's Eve 2014 as an example. The blue line is the posted wait shown to guests in MDE. The red line was the internal "actual wait" that used to be in the MDE data feed. (So all the data come from Disney.)
The actual wait for Space Mountain at 10 a.m. was around 65 minutes. The posted wait was 250. That 250 was a signal for people to go to other, less crowded parts of the park.
