During yesterday’s quarterly earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek hinted that park capacity at Disney World would increase very soon. These remarks came in response to the CDC’s newest guidance which states that fully vaccinated individuals can now “resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.”

…and here’s what availability looks like as of this writing! As you can see, availability has been added for every single date in the month of May from the 17th onward. Several of these dates were completely filled across all four theme parks! The Park Pass Reservation calendar is currently identical for guests with Theme Park Tickets.
Park Pass Reservation availability does not seem to be added, however, for Annual Passholders. Here is what Park Pass availability looked like for Annual Passholders as of Wednesday, May 12th…
