I never bought that the increased wait times in October didn't come w/ a capacity increase. My bet is that it was 10% in July and then increased to 25% in Sept and then 35% in October.

In general, people have been saying the last several weeks that the lines arenít as long as the posted times. I hope that is true, and I can report back that the lines were shorter than expected when we go!!!

They weren't in September (maybe half). By October they were getting closer, IME.

Cheers.

Yup. I tried to say as such and was shot down. Ah...oh well. 35% still ain't bad. But what do we think the true Nov capacity is then...and into Dec? 40...45%? Without FP...that kinda sucks actually.

I saw a post recently that the availability calendar showed more "green" and now available for Dec. We have a tentative trip booked but aren't convinced. October was not bad but that was before the case rises and now even more folks added into the parks.

The Nov wait times are flat from Oct so seems like they have leveled off capacity for now.

I saw that park passes had opened for December for many dates...this makes more sense now if capacity has increased. People are probably going to cancel as well so I suppose it may all work out in the wash.

It was not.....


Also, having the capacity set to 35% and achieving it are two different things. But I can assure you that Thanksgiving week will hit 35% and so wil Christmas/NYE week. The lack of fastpasses will surely bite when they near that 35% mark. The lack of people eater attractions really sucks.
