Disney is Increasing Capacity at Walt Disney World Resort Parks With More Increases to Come

During The Walt Disney Company’s earnings call today, CEO Bob Chapek shared some interesting insight on the capacity at domestic Disney Parks, including the fact that they’ve already begun increasing capacity.

  • Chapek did not share any specific numbers regarding the capacities at which Disney Parks are operating but simply said they’ve “already started” increasing capacity at the parks.
  • Chapek went on to point out that the news coming from the CDC today, stating that those who are fully vaccinated will no longer need to wear masks or socially distance, is “very big news” for the company.
  • The CEO did not go on to explain what this news could potentially mean for the parks or how they would go about implementing new face covering rules, but he did go on to say that this would “make for an even more pleasant experience” at the parks and that it would “be an even bigger catalyst for growth in attendance.”
  • He went on to say that we would see “an immediate increase in the number of folks that we’re able to admit into our parks.”
  • This news comes a day after we learned that California should be on track to lift capacity limits on venues like Disneyland Resort on June 15.
  • Back in November, we learned that Walt Disney World was operating at 35% capacity. Again, no specific numbers were shared during today’s call.
