    Hello, We’re planning to visit WDW during New Year’s Eve. Is Disney still limiting its crowd levels in parks as well as practising safe social distancing during the holidays? Are restaurants still limiting the number of people? Thank you.

    Hi Sophie, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for reaching out to us about the current guidelines and procedures at Walt Disney World Resort.  I am so happy to see that you are planning to visit Walt Disney World Resort for New Year's Eve, I can't think of a more magical way to ring in 2022!

    While we are not given exact capacity numbers, Walt Disney World Resort is still closely monitoring capacity and the resort is still not yet operating at "normal" pre-pandemic capacity levels.  I recommend checking out the "Know Before You Go" page on the Walt Disney World Resort website for the most up to date information as what to expect when visiting.  Here you will find all the relevant information regarding face coverings, social distancing and vaccine recommendations.  The Disney Park Pass system has been implemented to help control the number of guests entering each Theme Park, and during your visit you will be able to use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to see if there are any Theme Parks available for Park Hopping if you wish.  Simply look under Theme Park Hours and all available Theme Parks will be listed if there is capacity.  

    When we visited a few weeks ago, I did feel like there were significantly less guests when we were dining.  Again, we aren't given actual numbers, but there was more space between tables, and I did not feel like we were crowded at all.  My family and I felt completely safe and truly enjoyed every dining experience we had during our stay.  

    I hope this information helps, Sophie.  If you have any other questions, please come back to planDisney we are always happy to help.
