NEWS: Disney World Has Already Started Increasing Park Capacity

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.

  1. Yes – we are going for a week in June. We’ve been vaccinated so are thankful for no masks outdoors. Kinda worried about crowds but it’s just my husband and I. We are looking forward to it!

  2. Was there 2 weeks ago…many attractions closed, many places to eat closed, no monorail to Epcot or Polynesian for breakfast…no fireworks, no parades, no shows…

  3. We have a trip scheduled in June Would love to see fireworks. If crowds are increasing we’re going to need fast pass. Can’t wait.

  4. They sure better bring back more things to do then! Without return of entertainment all increased capacity will do is increase wait times.

    1. Taking the grandson in August for a graduation present. Hoping more rides and restaurants are open by then.

  5. We have a rescheduled trip with three grandchildren planned in September. We sure hope Fast Passes are restored.
