At 1pm we got group 155 (about 1:04pm actually got it). Almost 4pm and they are not at group 100 yet so I’m not feeling good about it. Plus we’ve got 8:30 dinner at Morimoto’s, so... until next time.

1pm window has been open for more than ~10 minutes - at 1pm, groups were called up to 58 (7 groups less than yesterday).

ETA - the window closed in just under ~11 minutes and 45 seconds.
Why is the 1pm window open for so long lately? Demand not high anymore for the afternoon or capacity increase? Been a while since I’ve payed attention to this thread.

My theory is that they release more BGs now that capacity increased (no plexiglass and filling rows up and combined parties)

Not sure if anyone saw this, but apparently DL’s ROTR reached BG 300+ yesterday!!
View attachment 564908

Just for reference, DL is open from 9am to 9pm and HS is open from 9am to 8pm, yet it struggles to reach BG 200 on a good day.

Of course the BG size could be different in both parks, but still!!

Edit: BlogMickey posted an article about the feat yesterday:
I think it is mighty presumptuous to assume that the boarding group sizes are the same on both coasts.
 
It will be interesting to see how long the 1pm boarding groups last today. Park is WAY more full than it was last Friday. They must have significantly increased park capacity this week… all lines are insanely long and it’s hard to even walk around in some places.

I am going to buy a day of roaming for Internet instead of using the wifi when we go. Will I have a better shot at getting a BG using actual data vs wifi?
I think that WDW wifi gets crushed at 7am so I would not want to trust that at crunch time. Others have had success but when it gets a few minutes before 7 I noticed major slowdowns
