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

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

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.

Wow. Going to be some (relatively) busy resorts for December. That will help a little. Like you said, though, I’m sure we’ll see the “bucket” replenished here and there.

They will surely add more availability as time gets closer, but still wild to see already. For resort/ticket guests in December, DHS is out everyday except for the 25th, which is out for MK.

I’m sorry, I mis-read it! (I thought it seemed out of character 🙂).

I know. I was trying to be a bit sarcastic, but that’s hard to read. The WS Entertainers were 3rd party and were working a year to year “gig,” but even they were going on 10+ years. The grand orchestra, yeehaw bob, and others were full time 20+ cm’s though.

Yesterday afternoon we re-booked our trip that was supposed to begin Saturday and moved it to May 2021. We were allowed to add park hopper to our reservation. Whether or not it will be honored is another story. We still had to make individual park reservations for each day.

Many of the entertainment CMs, performers or technicians, were employed on the same terms and other CMs. And they have been decimated. Someone posted there aren’t enough technicians left now to run Fantasmic. The bands, WS entertainers and so on we’re likely on gig contracts, year on year.

You might as well, especially if you’re planning to go to DHS. You can always change them later.

Park reservations have been extended to 2022. That does not necessarily mean no park hopping. According to @Magic Feather , it isn’t a top priority right now, the park reservation system could be changed to allow park hopping. I would post his comment but search isn’t working properly right now.

In this thread, all references to 2022 are for room reservations extending into 2022. Not for the name-your-park-for-the-day reservation lasting that long.

I agree. But... this is normal right? Happened after 9/11 right? Entertainers were just working a gig anyways right? Cue jungle cruise de-nile joke.

Exactly. Wait till everyone sees what’s happened to Walt Disney Entertainment. Shows and parades are doomed.

Park reservation sucks.

People are paying full price admission for limited hours, no fireworks, no parades, and he was able to lay-off 28,000 cm’s AFTER sending all the CP’s and Internationals home. This is Chapeks dream come true.
