It is not known if these additional reservations opened because Guests canceled trips to the Orlando, Florida area due to the COVID-19 Delta variant surge, or if Disney released more tickets due to a capacity increase — Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek previously confirmed that both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort have begun increasing capacity, but did not indicate what the current capacity levels are at the domestic Disney Parks.
