CEO Bob Chapek pushes for full reopening by the end of Q4

CEO Bob Chapek spoke today at the J.P. Morgan Global Technology Media, and Communications Conference. He said they are looking at increasing capacity fully by the end of Q4. Chapek said on the company’s second-quarter earnings call Thursday that the theme parks had already started increasing their capacity, and he thinks “you’re going to see an immediate increase in the number of folks that we’re able to admit into our parks.”

Chapek hinted its parks’ mask mandates could be lifted by the summer, saying not having to wear masks would be a “bigger catalyst for growth in attendance” and “make for an even more pleasant experience.”

Q4 is the end of the fiscal year and comes at the end of September, so we should see full capacity at Walt Disney World Resort by that time. Along with most if not all enhanced health and safety measures removed from the parks and resorts by that time, and a lifting of all mask mandates as long as they comply with local laws.

We are following along and will update on more news as we get it today.
