    I honestly do not know what the criteria or the capacity number at DAK is but I would guess it comparable to HKDL... around 30,000 maybe?

    35,000 - 40,000 seems to be a good number.This seems like a small number considering that it is the largest park.

    Re: Animal Kingdom

    That is because the guest (walking) areas are only about 35% of the space in that park.

    it's the largest park land wise due to all the savanahs and animal caging areas, but it is far from the largest park in guest capacity.

    Re: Animal Kingdom

    EPCOT would be the largest in guest areas with MK as second largest. I am not sure if Studios or AK has more capacity, I am guesing that AK does.

    It was my understanding TDL is the largest park in capacity of the DL parks, and EPCOT the largest of the 2nd gates.

    Well, it's also due to staffing at AK and the complex pattern of Walkways. I'm sure it's possible to staff that park enough to raise the capacity enough to make it higher than that of the Studios.

    I don't know exact figures, but I'd guess that all WDW parks (except for DAK) have much lower actual capacities now than they did a decade ago. So many attractions, dining venues and entertainment has been cut, plus you have many folks wandering walkways due to FastPass that I don't think the MK could ever approach the 80,000-plus it had a few times in the 70s and 80s on holidays like Christmas, NYE and July 4th.

    The Studios I could see actually being able to take slightly more guests now at night due to the Ozzy Lightfest but still not a huge amount more.
