NEWS: Disney Parks Demand is “Flat” With Pre-Pandemic Levels

Disney just released its Q2 Earnings Report for 2021 and there was a lot of interesting information.

During the subsequent earnings call, CEO Bob Chapek made several comments about the state of the Disney theme parks — especially Disney World. One comment noted a BIG comparison between now and 2019.

According to Chapek, the “intent to visit at Walt Disney World is growing — already flat with 2019.”

“Intent to visit” is a figure of demand that Disney has been monitoring. Apparently, this figure is now matching pre-pandemic levels as people begin to want to travel again.

We’ve been predicting potential pent-up demand as vaccine distribution continues so it will be interesting to see how Disney’s theme park demand levels vary over the coming months.

  1. We were at the parks February 5th-12th and were so disappointed with long lines and no fast passes, no parade, no fireworks, no character interactions and MASKS, sorry we will not return till it back to pay full price till things return yo the pre Covid time.

  2. Our family of 18 has a trip planned for October and hope the remaining value resorts announce their opening soon

  3. Booked but canceled for July not knowing if masks would be required or not. Masks in July heat in Florida just sounds unbearable. Rebooked for end of October 2021 for Halloween, Food & Wine Festival and Christmas decor all in one week.

  4. We have a trip planned in mid July. We were there last summer after re-opening. I really just can’t wait to get back. Hopefully more things will start to open up.

  5. Who wants to visit when you have to wait in long lines for attractions and things like Quick Service? The value will not be there. After spending thousands of dollars if you stay onsite, and then spend the day waiting in long lines, it’s not worth it. Not everyone wants to use mobile ordering first thing in the morning either. Bring back Fast Passes & Disney Dining Plans too!

    1. I agree. I pushed our trip back to the end of the year hoping to get back to something normal for my money.
