During an interview Monday evening (Oct. 13), Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, said Disney remains capped at 25% for all of their theme parks.


As shared by TheDisInsider: “During a revealing interview with CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Chapek stated that the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort were capped at 25%.”

While wait times have seemed to soar recently and crowd levels are continuously growing, this may come as a surprise to many. We do believe however, that yes, the parks are at 25% capacity. So, why such a difference between now and when the parks first reopened with the same 25% capacity? We believe people are starting to feel comfortable enough amidst the COVID concerns to visit the parks once again. This is likely a sign that the first couple of months Disney was well under the 25%. We’re likely just now starting to see the full 25% capacity in each park as Disney goers head back to the most magical place on earth!


What do you think? Too crowded? Or should Disney increase their capacity percentage?
