During a roundtable discussion at Universal Orlando with leaders from Universal, Walt Disney World, and SeaWorld, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said the state would support theme parks increasing capacity.
Florida theme parks like Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World Resort, and SeaWorld have been operating at reduced capacity since they reopened this summer. Executives from those three theme parks say their reopenings have been successful and claim they have created some of the safest environments in the world.
DeSantis said, “We think the capacity can be increased. When you have the kind of protocols they have in place, you know, we’re very comfortable at the state level that they’re doing it in a good way.”
Local reporter Amanda Dukes shared on Twitter:

Right now guests visiting Walt Disney World need to make a park reservation on top of purchasing admission. Increasing capacity limits would open up more reservation availability.
