Bob Chapek shared there is a strong demand recover for the Disney theme parks. The intent to visit is comparable to 2019 at Walt Disney World which is a good sign of what’s to come. The Walt Disney Company continues to invest in the parks. When Chapek was asked what should we look to as indicators to raising capacity, he said Disney is looking to normalize operations as soon as possible, when it is practical and done in a responsible way. Chapek said he expects a “low double digits increases in the next several months in terms of attendance”. He expects to see changes in COVID-19 policies near the end of the fourth fiscal quarter.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
