Earlier we shared that this week  would be a busy one, with Park Pass reservations nearly gone on several days this week! Since the phased reopening of the theme parks, park reservations are required for all four theme parks.

Recently the Disney Chief Financial Officer, Christine McCarthy, shared that the Disney Parks were still not operating at full capacity and they will not be returning to normal capacity. This may be surprising to Guests visiting where wait times are on the rise.

This week we have seen high wait times that makes us wonder what capacity the parks are currently at.

2 Hours+ Wait Times

Currently, 4 attractions have wait times over 2 hours. Unfortunately three of these four attractions are all in the same park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This inflates the wait times for the other remaining attractions in the Park as well.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the following attractions have longer than a 2 hour wait time:

  • Rise of the Resistance: 180 minutes
  • Tower of Terror: 130 minutes
  • Slinky Dog Dash: 130 minutes

It is worth noting that there are no Lightning Lane times available for these attractions. The fourth attraction with a 2 hour + wait time is Flight of Passage in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
