Walt Disney World’s theme parks booked to near capacity over Thanksgiving week, cap changed to 35%

The Walt Disney Company has revealed some new information about Walt Disney World’s attendance caps and expected crowds over the Thanksgiving holiday. In their recent earnings call, Disney mentioned that the Disney Park Pass Reservation System is booked to near capacity over Thanksgiving week.

Walt Disney World’s operating capacity has also been increased to 35% from 25%. Disney cited having more knowledge about how their operations can perform in the new climate as one of the factors behind the increase.

The eye test suggests that crowds never came close to reaching 25% when the theme parks first reopened. Recently, larger crowds have become more apparent and it was clear the 25% tally was being challenged if not surpassed. Attraction wait times have substantially increased and walkways around Walt Disney World are notably more congested.

The holidays almost always bring enormous crowds to Walt Disney World. Even with limited attendance, the parks may will feel very full as crowds grow due to social distanced queues and closed shows/attractions.
