Walt Disney World is once again at full capacity, with all Disney Park Pass reservations for all ticket levels now sold out for all four theme parks. This is the second day in a row the Disney World theme parks reached capacity as on December 12, we reported the park passes were also sold out.

An Inside the Magic reader is visiting Magic Kingdom today and sent us some photos, showing the crowd levels at the theme park, which, despite being at full limited capacity, isn’t as crowded as you’d imagine. Again, keep in mind that Walt Disney World is currently operating at a lower capacity than usual, so even with the theme parks “hitting capacity” it is nothing like it was prior to the pandemic.

Near the Main Street Train Station, there weren’t too many crowds at around 12 pm, but if you look closer to where Main Street U.S.A. begins, there are people lined up on the sidewalks, this was for the holiday cavalcades that pop up throughout the day.

Once the cavalcade ended, Guests immediately walked down Main Street U.S.A. to go about their day. This photo shows what Main Street U.S.A. looks like right after the cavalcade on a full capacity day. Keep in mind, these crowds tend to die out as everyone spreads out through the park.

After a few minutes passed by, you can see the crowds dispersed as Guests scattered throughout the other parts of Magic Kingdom.

Once Merida was making her way down Main Street, some Guests stopped to watch the upcoming cavalcade but overall, as you can see in the photo below, the crowds aren’t too bad.

At around 1:30 pm, this is what Tomorrowland looked like. You can see there are small groups of people scattered throughout the land, all socially distanced.

Typically, the walkway by Peter Pan’s Flight and “it’s a small world” is packed but as you can see in the photo below, taken at approximately 3 pm, it is not nearly as bad as you would think.

Overall, our Inside the Magic reader said that despite the park being at full limited capacity, the crowds aren’t nearly as bad as she expected.

Disney Springs has also been drawing in more crowds during the holiday season than it was earlier in the year, which you can read more about here.
