The happiest place on earth is going to get a bit busier soon. While COVID-19 numbers are rising across the USA, Disney World Parks has decided to increase their number of total guests allowed in their parks at any given time.
To date, their parks have been operating at 25% capacity, but that number is getting increased to 35% in order to bring in more visitors. Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed the additional guest capacity change on Thursday.
Face masks and social distancing requirements are remaining in place, and it’s unclear exactly when the park capacity increase will go into effect fully.
The parks have been operating at 25% capacity since July, and some long lines have been reported due to the new safety measures in place. Guests who wish to visit will need to make a reservation ahead of time.
We’ll keep you posted when the changes go into effect.
