I don't *know* but I think it would be pretty low.

I thought I remember hearing (maybe from a CM but not from a bus driver - we have a car!) or reading that before NFL it was 50,000 ish and with NFL it was now 70,000 ish but that could be way off.

Considering that MK averaged about 46,900 per day in 2011 (last full year stats I've seen) then 20,000 would likely be considered quite low.

Out of curiosity, why did you choose that number? Did you see it somewhere?

That number is quite low. Most estimates for a party sellout are 25,000 or more, and MK is not crowded for those park-wide.

20,000 is even pretty low for Studios... but yeah. MK would be DEAD if there were only 20,000 people there....

We were commenting on how crowded it was while waiting for the fireworks one night and the castmember near us said "It's only about 25,000 tonight, you should see at Christmas when we hit in the 50's"

It really only felt ultra crowded because of where we were positioned waiting for the parade and that everyone was congregating in that area. This was also before NFL so I imagine the previous poster was correct when they said they thought capacity was around 50,000.

I was in MK on New Year's Eve 2010. A security guard told us there were 90,000 people in the park. I don't know if she was exaggerating, but I had about 1 square foot to stand on Main Street waiting for the midnight fireworks. So, like others have said, with 20,000 people I think you could shoot the PotC cannon down the street and hit no one.

20K would be very low for a regular park day, but would feel somewhat crowded on a party night. That is because on a regular park day folks are fairly evenly distributed throughout the park. At a party, they tend to congregate on Main Street to see the party specific parade, shows and fireworks.

We've never been to WDW during Xmas and the Xmas party they have said they sell 20,000 tickets. I was wondering if that would be crowded or not and worth it.

Not sure at what level the closures start but given the 2011 average per day of 46,900 it has to be well above 50,000 and probably more like 60,000+ for phase 1.
