Walt Disney World’s theme parks might be pretty empty when they initially reopen. According to a reporter from WESH in Orlando, Disney is considering limiting capacity to 20-30% when they first welcome guests back to their theme parks.
This news comes as Disney is continuing to prepare its reopening presentation for the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force. So far, no specific details or dates have been confirmed, but a safe assumption is Disney will make a presentation based on what they have learned at Disney Springs and at Shanghai Disneyland.
The reported 20-30% capacity is very similar to the initial crowds that returned to Shanghai Disneyland earlier this month. Disney started below the recommended 30% capacity guidelines there and only increased after reviewing how guests were maintaining and upholding the new health regulations.
Disney’s reopening plan is still evolving as of the date of this article. Several ideas have been considered, including the possibility of reopening the theme parks in phases, but nothing has been officially confirmed at this time.
