Disney lifts more blockout dates for Cast Member admission to Walt Disney World theme parks

Disney has lifted more blockout dates for Cast Members at the Walt Disney World theme parks for the coming month of June.

Since the parks reopened back in July 2020, Cast Member availability to enter the parks using a Main Entrance Pass and Cast ID Self Admission has been extremely restricted, with no dates available for May 2021. Availability now includes 8 days in June at EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom. Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios currently remain blocked out for the entire month of June 2021.

The addition of more Cast Member admission dates comes as Disney continues to increase capacity at the Walt Disney World theme parks. Disney CEO Bob Chapek has recently said that we can expect to see "low double digit increases" in attendance over the next coupe of months.

Probably when they get more staff.

Any word on when they are going to start filling more tables in the dining areas that are open. Dining capacity still seems woefully low.

I'd say RNR doesn't suffer badly without it but it doesn't make it worse with it. It tells the story of why you are on a speeding limo and needing to avoid traffic. I do wish TT had been turned back on when I rode Wednesday. It adds a challenge.

Yes it came back approximately 45 minutes after I posted this, because of course it did LOL. Glad it's back! I think it's a fun diversion.

I haven’t seen any indication that TT design studio or RNR is back on. RNR is better without it but TT is missed.

I just saw this. You made my day. It's not an exaggeration when I say Living With the Land is one of my favorite rides in all of Disney.
