Capacity at Walt Disney World has remained a mere 35% for months. That reduced capacity may stick around for a while.
“We’ve got to see the vaccine working. A whole lot of things have to happen before Disney is going to feel comfortable allowing more people back in,” Dr. Mark Johnston, professor of marketing at Rollins College said.
Dr. Johnston predicts the earliest the park may open to full capacity would be this full, but even Johnston says that doesn’t seem likely.
“It’s very difficult to see that happening until possibly late 2021 or more likely early 2022.”Dr. Mark Johnston, Rollins College marketing professor
A while back, Disney announced that they weren’t selling new annual passes. Experts say with limited capacity, the parks can make more money from people paying for the day pass.
Influencers and bloggers are hopeful that Disney will start selling new annual passes eventually. Those who currently have an annual pass can still renew them.
But when new Annual Passholders and normal capacity resume are dependent on one thing: Coronavirus (COVID-19).
