Disney confirms attendance cap remains at 35%. When Disney World reopened back in July 2020, the phased opening of the four parks also included an attendance cap of 25%. Back in November, however, this attendance cap increased to 35%.
In January this year, news broke that it seemed likely that Walt Disney World will keep the attendance capped to 35% until 2022! Reported by the Orlando Sentinel, Disney confirms attendance cap remains at 35%, following an interview with CEO Bob Chapek. That despite the rise in COVID-19 cases within the state of Florida, the parks will remain at 35% capacity. Likewise, even with the COVID-19 vaccinations rolling out, the park capacity will remain the same. As confirmed by Mr Chapek, who said “to us seems like the biggest lever that we can have in order to either take the parks that are currently under limited capacity and increase it or open up parks that are currently closed”.
Current COVID-19 guidelines for the Walt Disney World resort are: park capacity at 35%, the six-foot rule between separate parties and other CDC guidelines, such as spaces between guests on attractions. Disney’s 35% capacity is the maximum amount of guests to allow for social distancing throughout the parks.
