Disney Theme Parks To Increase Capacity and Be Fully Staffed by End of the Year


Disney Theme Parks To Increase Capacity and Be Fully Staffed by End of the Year

During the Q3 earnings call, Christine McCarthy, Disney Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, discussed the theme park capacity and their plan to be fully staffed by the end of the calendar year.


Yeah, I would just add that our parks -- our plan -- and once again, this is -- we'll monitor the trends with what's going on with the Delta variant. But we're expecting to have our parks domestically be fully staffed up by the end of this calendar year, calendar 2021. And we're going to be increasing capacities as we have the demand and we're also being able to train -- thoroughly train our employees as they come back in. And once again, this is an ever-changing landscape with COVID, but we're going to be particularly careful and we're also going to bring our capacity online aggressively, but measured.


We're not just going to open up the doors and flung them open. So we're doing this in a measured fashion for the health and safety of not only our guests, but also our cast members in the parks.


Despite the Delta variant, Disney continues to see a strong demand for the theme parks. A majority of the cancellations are based around conventions.
