    Hello! Looking to secure a Magic Kingdom park reservation for October1. Looking for thoughts on when Disney may expand park capacity and where to look for this information. Thanks and have a 'Magical Day'!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Shaun! You've brought a question that more casual fans of  the Walt Disney World Resort might be wondering about. October 1, 2021 will be a special day at the Most Magical Place on Earth! That day is the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The Disney Park Pass Reservation System currently shows no availability for Magic Kingdom Park on October 1, 2021. It is possible that additional park capacity will be opened, but it is very difficult to predict when that might occur. There have been previous dates on which parks were marked as unavailable, but additional park capacity was made available at a later date. As I was preparing for my most recent visit, Disney's Hollywood Studios was marked as unavailable. I continued to check, daily, and was pleasantly surprised to see additional capacity added as the date of my arrival approached! 

    Shaun, if you are determined to join the World's Most Magical Celebration, I suggest that you check the Disney Park Pass Reservation System daily. You might also want to consider becoming a regular visitor to the Disney Parks Blog. This has been the site for the most reliable and accurate information!
