Walt Disney World to start Increasing Park Capacity

Walt Disney World is working on increasing theme park capacity after the CDC and state of Florida released new guidelines. As far as we knew, the parks were previously operating at 35% capacity.

Walt Disney World to start Increasing Park Capacity

The CDC released new guidance today regarding vaccinated individuals and mask requirements. Disney CEO Bob Chapek made a statement regarding that guidance and park capacity.

In terms of the parks, and when we’re going to sort of be able to raise our capacity limits, we’ve actually already started that. Given the guidance that just came today, from the CDC, and earlier guidance that we got from the governor of Florida, we’ve already started to increase our capacities.

So I think you’re going to see an immediate increase in the number of folks that we’re able to admit into our parks through our reservation systems that we recently implemented. So we’re very, very excited about that.

Chapek also shared that guests should see an immediate increase in park pass reservation availability and that park capacity will continue to be increased.

He did not say at what capacity the parks will now be operating but we expect more and more guests to be able to visit over the coming months.

If you have been hoping for park reservations to open for a specific day, be on the look out for them to become available!

  1. We were just there a month ago, we went to Epcot, they are claiming 35%, I don’t see the truth in that being is it was elbow to elbow with people? We didn’t mind, but Disney let’s be honest here
