Central Florida theme parks meet reduced capacity around holidays

For two days in a row, Universal Orlando hit its lowered capacity. The resort said they reached capacity Sunday and Monday before noon.

Nobody goes to the Orlando theme parks on New Year's week anymore. It's too crowded.

Both Universal parks hit capacity today at 8:10am. Even in the before times I can never think of a park hitting capacity almost an hour before the regular opening time for pretty much every week of the year. Obviously it's because the number is (hopefully) crazy low, but still.

Maybe its a bunch of healthcare workers and people living in nursing homes who all got vaccinated who are visiting the parks?

I hope/assume your being sarcastic, but just because I've seen enough misinformation on social media and other places: Nobody has a second dose yet, so nobody is actually vaccinated. Also, it isn't proven to prevent transmission and is only 95% effective against disease.

Hope is not a strategy. And you know what happens when you assume.

From conversations I've had, I believe Universal is hovering around a cap at 25/30K.

Average I think is about 40-50k?
