in Walt Disney World

During the holiday season, it became quite typical to see all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks hit capacity. Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom would be flooded with several Guests, but it’s important to note the theme parks stayed within the 35% capacity limit that is in place.

Since then, however, Disney Park Pass reservations have been fairly easy to snag! Guests have had the luxury of getting a Disney Park Pass day of to the park of their choice quite often, but it looks like that is changing. 

Today, all four Disney parks are at capacity. This means that Annual Passholders, Disney Resort Guests, and Ticketed Guests have all maxed out the reservation options available, so if you were thinking about heading to the parks today, think again.

As we can see from Disney’s Park Pass availability calendar above, Sunday is on its way to filling up, but the rest of February still has full availability to all parks. It seems that Orlando and Central Florida locals are likely the reason that parks hit capacity, considering that many Guests have weekends off work, and can come then. Combine that with out-of-town vacationers, and you could soon have a packed park!

That being said, wait times do not seem to be too crazy for a full capacity day. If we take a look at a few wait times below, Expedition Everest, Haunted Mansion, and Splash Mountain – all very popular attractions – are only at a 20-minute wait.

However, there still are high wait time attractions such as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Na’vi River Journey, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Avatar Flight of Passage that range between 70 minutes to 105-minute waits.

Considering spring break is right around the corner, the Disney Parks are likely going to be hitting capacity more often than we have seen so far this year. Therefore, if you have a date that you want to ensure that you will be in the parks for, make sure to make that Disney Park Pass in advance!

Do you find it easy to score a Disney Park Pass reservation to your desired theme park?
