    Thanks Jo for your help. Now my next question I have 2 teenage boys (17 and 15) who like their sleep ins, do the parks ever reach capacity. I am worried we will get there mid day and they will be full and we'll be turned away. We are staying in disney.

    Hi Tracey,

    Glad that I could help with your previous question :-)

    I haven't had to deal with children sleeping in whilst at Disney yet, my girls are almost 11 & 13 so I'm sure it won't be many years away, but we do come and go from the parks throughout the day and we've never had a problem with the parks being closed due to them reaching capacity. But there are a few days during the year where I've heard that the parks can close, it happens mainly around Christmas, particularly Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. Also July 4th is a very popular day and can result in closures, so if you're not travelling at those times you should be absolutely fine!

    If you are travelling during those busy times then you still should be OK if you're patient as the way the parks work their closures is on a rolling system, meaning that if a park closes and people leave it will reopen again until it's at capacity again.

    Hope that helps and if there's anything else I can help you with please ask again!
