Magic Kingdom At Capacity for Most Guests on Christmas Day

It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through 2021! It has been a year of reopenings and reimagining at Walt Disney World, and we’re thrilled with Disney’s progress after pulling through a year like 2020. If you’re making holiday plans to visit Walt Disney World, you’re not alone! Disney recently announced 2021 holiday experiences are returning to all four parks, as well as Disney Springs. While Disney will not offer Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom this year, they are offering a new experience called “Disney Very Merriest After Hours”. Apparently all the holiday events are intriguing Disney fans, as more and more guests are making plans to enjoy the holiday magic that surrounds the parks… especially Magic Kingdom!

As you likely know by now, Walt Disney World requires guests make a Park Pass reservation prior to visiting one of their four theme parks. Gone are the days of showing up at your park of choice. Instead, you’ll need a park reservations with your valid ticket to gain access.

When looking over the Walt Disney World Theme Park Reservation calendar, we’ve noticed Christmas Day (December 25, 2021) is currently at capacity for most Disney guests. In the screenshots below, you’ll notice the popular park is currently unavailable for Theme Park Ticket guests and Select Resort Hotels guests:

Thankfully, the other three Walt Disney World parks currently remain open for theme park ticket holders and resort guests. If you’re a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder and want to visit Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day – you’re in luck! You’ll see in the screenshot below, Park Passes are still available for December 25 for Annual Passholders:

Take note! As Walt Disney World continues to increase capacity, we’re seeing more and more park pass calendar dates refilled. If you aren’t an Annual Passholder and want to visit Magic Kingdom on December 25, we recommend checking the Theme Park Reservation calendar frequently to see if Disney opens any more slots. In the meantime, be sure to snag one of the other theme parks for December 25 before they too fill. Happy halfway to Christmas, Disney fans!

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 16 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.
