If you were planning on visiting The Walt Disney World Resort this week and you are not an Annual Passholder, we hope you already have those Theme Park Reservations secured.
According to the Disney World website, Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are completely booked for Theme Park Ticketholders and Select Resort Hotel Guests from today, February 21, through Wednesday, February 23. Only EPCOT Park Passes currently remain for Thursday, February 24, and Friday, February 25.

This update follows a President’s Day weekend that saw Disney World hitting maximum capacities in all of its theme parks on all Theme Park Reservation groups, including all Annual Passholder tiers. However, it should be noted that all Theme Parks currently remain open for all Passholder tiers this week.
This is the first time since the Holiday Season that we have noticed theme parks reaching capacity to this degree. While holiday weekends like President’s Day are known to bring in large crowds, it is noteworthy to see so much activity planned at the Parks for the rest of the workweek.

Disney World’s attendance spike also follows the mega-resort’s decision to make masks optional in all indoor and outdoor areas save for “enclosed transportation” like The Walt Disney World Monorail System and Bus transportation. While Disney makes a point to explain the loosening of restrictions is only privy to “fully vaccinated” Guests, there are no measures to check Guests’ vaccination status.
It is very likely, at this point, that the remaining EPCOT passes will be picked up shortly. We at Disney Fanatic will keep an eye on Disney World’s Theme Park Pass Availability Calendar and will provide updates as the information is made known.
