    Talking Capacity at MK?

    Being a Disneyland fan in California, I wondered if anyone knows the in-park capacity of the Magic Kingdom at WDW?

    I understand MK was purposefully built larger to accomodate bigger crowds, 100 acres in-park with larger hub and wider walkways.

    I once was at DL during the 4th of July and the park had to close down admissions at 64,000. This was quite a few years ago, later I heard even 80,000 was reached some years later.

    Can MK handle 100,000 capacity? Inside the park gates, not counting the outside entry area or monorail station.

    I think it can handle 100,000 but they usually close it at around 80.

    100,000 people?! Yowza that place must be huge! Never been, but hopefully if I ever make it there won't be that many people there.

    100,000? Maybe in daily attendance. At once capacity doesn't reach that high in any WDW park.

    Phased closings begin in the 60,000s.

    100,000 guests a day.. at Tokyo Disneyland that is. The MK usually closes around 65,000, according to my sources who still work there at the main entrance.

    How can the capacity be so much higher when MK only has half the attractions?

    Actually, the last time MK reached a phase 4 closure, attendance was right around 94,000.

    Exactly. At least at TDL, we have many more (permanently opened) food outlets, restaurants, shows and attractions over those found in the MK... and with the MK's many permanent closures, like the AD Veranda, Noodle station, and puny pixar attractions that never have a line.. well. I don't buy that they even have room for 65,000 guests in the park, much less that fictional level 4 nonsense someone here mentioned before. There simply is not room for that mane people in the MK, or else, then TDL handles close to 140,000 on some days...by those inflated numbers.

    Not even close. The MK has never and could never (unless it was expanded) have that many people within it's gates at one time.

    Re: Capacity at MK?

    I have never seen it get that high (neither when I was Castmember nor as a Guest)and I doubt it could ever get that high..according to the website disneybythenumbers.com "100,000 guests is the max capacity for the Magic Kingdom. The parking lot closes at 75,000 to allow room for Hotel resort guests arriving on buses, boats and monorail."

    How accurate that is? I don't know, like I said I've been at the park when it's near capacity and you could barely move let alone get anywhere quickly, the one day I was working Space Mountian's wait time got up to 3 hours! and that was at around 65-70,000 if I remember correctly...So it's doubtful that it's safe to let the total people INSIDE the park at any given time reach 100,000...

    ^Capacity was higher before Fastpass, and before they closed all the smaller attractions.
