We’ve definitely noticed some larger crowds on certain days and certain areas throughout Disney World.
When Florida originally moved to phase 3, which would allow theme parks to increase their capacity, Disney initially said that it would not be increasing capacity immediately. But, Disney has shared that park capacity has now changed!
During the earnings call today, Bob Chapek, the current Chief Executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, noted that Disney is encouraged by what they’re seeing in parks around the world with high guest demand and park operators becoming more efficient and effective at operating under COVID guidelines. Chapek also noted that Disney World has in fact been able to increase capacity. Specifically, Chapek said, “Walt Disney World, which was at a 25% capacity constraint…now has been able to increase to 35% of capacity, so almost a 50% increase in the number of guests that we can allow in.”
Chapek noted, however, that they are still adhering “to the local guidelines and the guidelines that are stipulated by the CDC with the six-foot social distancing.”
