It’s been a big news day for Disney, and we’ve been busy reporting everything from today’s Quarterly Earnings Call.
During the call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that Disney World has increased park capacity from 25% to 35% and that the company plans to spend $1 billion on health and safety measures at its parks in 2021.
Chapek also stated that Disney World is 77% booked for the first fiscal quarter of 2021 and that he’s encouraged by booking trends for that quarter. We also learned that Thanksgiving Week at Disney World is almost booked to 100% capacity.
Disney’s 2020 fiscal year ended on October 3rd, with its first fiscal year of 2021 starting after that and running through the beginning of January 2021.
We’re already seeing increased crowds at the park during this first fiscal quarter, as well as park pass availability filling up quickly through the end of the year and into the beginning of January. We are keeping a close eye on park passes and will keep you in the loop on how things are looking over the next few weeks. We anticipate higher crowds due to holiday season.
As always, stay tuned because we’ll keep you updated!
