Walt Disney World enters Spring Break at maximum capacity with no Disney Park Pass availability for the next 9 days

29 days ago in "MyMagic+"

Spring Break kicks off this weekend for some, and Walt Disney World has reached capacity for at least the next 9 days.

The latest Disney Park Pass availability calendar shows all four theme parks at capacity from March 12 through to March 20 2021.

Operating hours for the majority of next week are:

  • Magic Kingdom 8am to 9pm
  • EPCOT 11am to 11pm
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios 9am to 8pm
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom 8am to 8pm

This is the first extended period of no availability for any of the ticket types since Disney Parks Pass began with the reopening of the theme parks back in July 2020. The system was introduced as a way to control attendance and to give guests park entry availability notice ahead of their arrival.

The end of the month also appears to be getting close to capacity, with no Day guest or Resort guest availability at any park from March 29 - 31.

I haven’t been during the pandemic but I watch a lot of YouTube videos 🤣 It does seem like wait times are usually inflated. I’m wondering if that is to account for a random cleaning cycle. Like the posted wait time is worst case scenario should you hit a cleaning cycle.

I only make it down here every couple of years, so I don’t know. But today and yesterday, most, but not all rides were running about half of the posted time. People are freaking when they see the length of the lines, but you almost never stop moving. For example, the line yesterday for 7 dwarves wrapped almost 360 degrees around the “mountain” at 8 am, with a posted wait of 70 minutes. I was off the ride in 30-35 minutes. It’s pretty crazy haha, and the story was very much the same today at Hollywood Studios. Slinky dog was posted at 70 minutes, we were walking off the ride at around 40 minutes. Swirling Saucers had a posted wait of 25 minutes and it was walk on.

I've been wondering if this was the case. Are wait times usually inflated across the board?

We were in the parks yesterday and today. Most wait times are about half of what’s posted.

Those wait times today when I checked were crazy. Hoping in a month it won't be nearly as busy

Yes the walk up window is closed due to Covid protocols.

I'm confused @durangojim is the walk-up window closed because of covid? When I was there in Feb 2020 (pre-covid) there is a walk-up window for ice-cream.

They really screwed up Beaches and Cream.

Remember what that 35% is a percent of. A normal pre covid day with full shows, hotels open, entertainment would have about the same people or up to 50% of capacity. The 35% is NOT 35% of a normal day.
