Initially, the parks were operating at a maximum of 25% capacity. Chapek said that the 25% cap was their initial industrial engineering estimate to maintain 6 feet social distancing.  

During a quarterly financial call last November, Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, shared that they safely increased Park Capacity to 35%.

Will there be an increase to the Park Capacity? Back in February during a Q1 earnings call, Chapek stated that park capacity would increase based upon the COVID-19 vaccination rate.

Currently, the Disney Parks have not reached capacity with the exception of a few dates around the holidays. Read more about this HERE.

Increase of Park Capacity

Today Bob Chapek, Disney CEO, shared that Walt Disney World has already stared increasing Park Capacity.

Chapek shared, “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.”

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

  1. I really want fast passes to come back. Even though lines move faster, at the end of the day, we spend more time in lines, than we did before limited capacity.

  2. So he isn’t saying by how much the capacity has been increased. Honestly I don’t want to see fast passes come back. The lines move much faster without them

  3. They will HAVE to address the lack of FP+ or come up with an alternative. They can not increase capacity and not address its impact on wait time.
