Disney's Hollywood Studios is the first park to hit capacity for Disney Park Pass availability

Jun 22, 2020 in "Disney's Hollywood Studios"

Posted: Monday June 22, 2020 2:49pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney's Hollywood Studios is now at capacity for the first two days of its reopening.

Disney Park Pass reservations began earlier today, open to Disney Resort guests only, and by 2:15pm Disney's Hollywood Studios reached capacity for both July 15 and July 16 2020.

Currently, all other dates and parks have full availability, although reservations are continuing, and on Friday will be joined by Disney Annual Passholders.

Disney has previously said that it expects people to have difficulty in obtaining reservations on some days, and that has turned out to be correct.

Disney's Hollywood Studios is perhaps viewed as the hot ticket now, with Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway recently opened. The compact nature of the park would also likely give it the smallest distanced capacity of the four Walt Disney World theme parks.

Most likely because Sorcerer, Pirate and Pixie Passes are all blocked out starting December 20.

I can understand the 9th and 16th (since they are Saturdays) but the 18th and 19th seem strange (especially the 19th, which is a party day). Anything unusual going on those days?

Or how they let me buy ILL's for 7DMT at a time the ride was scheduled to be down for fireworks preparation? (I mean, they said to just come back after the fireworks, which we did, but they should not allow you to buy the ILLs for a timeslot when the ride is scheduled to be down)

Kind of like how the other night we were at EPCOT and the VQ for guardians reached capacity and they didn’t make it to our boarding group but you could still buy an ILL….

Still selling day tickets though. Stay Classy, Disney.

Christmas is the one time of year the park pass system is needed and it’s a shame they couldn’t keep it (just for the last two weeks of the year) for next year. It made Christmas/new years week in the parks much more bearable than it used to be. Oh well.

I took 200+ high school band students to WDW (and USF) for 5 days in spring 2022. At WDW they were free to leave the resort after a 7am breakfast meeting and go to whatever park they wanted. They were required to be back at the resort at a predetermined curfew each night. I had a couple of parent chaperones stationed in the resort lobby during the day but the rest of the chaperones and band staff pretty much went on their own as well without any students. We only required the students to remain in groups of at least 3 (one to stay with the second while the third goes for help if needed) and send us selfies in front of identifiable landmarks at certain times during the day. Aside from the occasional lost backpack or park ticket, the trip went surprisingly well.

And this is the reason why Day Tickets no longer have to make reservations. The number of Day Tickets is limited in number and pegged to a specific date range.

As an AP, it’s nice to see the tables turned and ticket guests being locked out before APs.

I don't understand this. If you are staying on site in a WDW resort, you should be able to get into any park you want.
