In an interview where Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek goes over these plans, he also mentions an important note about park capacity.

The interview was centered around streaming becoming the primary focus of the Disney company. However, Chapek happened to mention that the theme parks are operating at 25% capacity according to a tweet from reporter Danielle DiMartino Booth.


We’ve seen wait times grow longer and the parks hit capacity since Disney World’s reopening in July. While we are unsure of when Disney will raise its capacity in the parks, we now know that they are currently operating at 25%.

We will continue to update you on the status of Disney’s theme park capacity.

  1. There was an article in the New York Times recently that it appears Disney’s efforts at keeping everyone safe, both employees and guests, appears to be working. Workers unions report no outbreak among their workers and no increase, at least in the Orlando area, of cases tied to people visiting Disney. This is the information we have sought in preparation for our visit next March. I have contacted Disney about this and they say they don’t re;lease attendance figures and do all they can to keep people safe. I think Disney could do themselves a huge favor by showing that WDW is safe. Why leave it to the unions and the department of health to do that? It makes it seem Disney is hiding something.

  2. I think there’s absolutely no way that with those crowds and wait times that they are operating at 25%. It already looks incredibly unmanageable and from what I see at 25% I don’t see how it would be possible to INCREASE it even more. There’s no way to operate safely following the protocols with even more people. Based on what I’ve been seeing, I don’t even know how they’re doing it now. Lines are insane! So many people, so much congregation around rides. And if rides are already at over one hour waits at just 25% capacity, imagine how long they’ll be if it’s increased!!! Forget it, no one will be able to ride anything!

  3. Whoa…was there this weekend. Seemed like more than 25%! I just want virtual queues to be a thing. Waited 50 minutes for haunted mansion
