    We have a Disney trip planned for Thanksgiving break. Will the park be back to running at full capacity then? If so...will fast passed be available?

    Hi Melissa!

    I am excited to see that you have a trip planned for Thanksgiving week - that is only next month!  I cannot wait to return to The Most Magical Place on Earth!   

    Typically, Thanksgiving week is one of the most popular times of the year to visit Walt Disney World Resort, but that being said, the parks are currently still operating at reduced capacity, and we do not yet know when they will reach full capacity again.  FastPass+ reservations are still temporarily suspended, and at this time we also do not know if this service will return.  With reduced crowds comes shorter lines, so hopefully there is less need for FastPass+ reservations.  I would also recommend you arrive at the parks as early as possible. Please keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news as it is announced.  

    In addition to your park admission tickets you will need to make a reservation to enter a theme park each day, by using the Disney Park Pass system.  Please ensure your admission tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account, then you can go ahead and select your park for each day of your visit.  Please know that these park passes are limited in availability so I encourage you to secure yours as soon as possible.  There is no park hopping available at this time, but you are still permitted to leave the park and return later in the day if you wish.

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World, we may need a little more considered and careful planning, but our vacations to Walt Disney World Resort can still be a magical experience.  Please read this information about Returning to a World of Magic, and Parks and Tickets: Know Before You Go.

    Please know we are working to be able to answer your questions as quickly as possible, and we look forward to providing an update as soon as we have more information to share.  Come back and ask as many questions as you like!  We are always happy to help you plan your vacation.
