Disney World has been operated at a reduced capacity since the parks reopened last July.
Initially, the parks were operating at 25% capacity, which was later increased to 35%. Now, Disney has confirmed that park capacity has begun to increase once again.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced that capacity increases have already begun again in Disney World, though he did not share a specific percentage of capacity. This increase reflects high guest demand and a need to maximize efficient operations within the parks.
The capacity measures will coincide with the current health and safety measures. Keep in mind that social distancing will be reduced down from 6 feet in the coming days.
At this time, it’s currently unclear how this increase in guests will impact the need for the return of services like FastPass+.
We’ve seen Disney make attempts to increase efficiency when having to maintain distancing measures. The addition of plexiglass barriers on rides allows more guests to ride at one time, ideally making wait times shorter.
