For our Disney fans, here is your long awaited news: On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, Disney proposed a phased reopening of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11, 2020, and reopening of Epcot and Hollywood Studios on July 15, 2020. Disney plans on setting significant limit (observing CDC’s guidelines for 6 feet social distancing) on attendance and will require park visitors to purchase their tickets in advance of arriving at various Disney parks.
Some of Disney’s planned safety measures are: additional hand washing stations, temperature checks, and social distancing throughout the parks, including at restaurants and wait lines for rides. Disney is also suspending parades and various events that would cause crowds to gather. Contactless payments using Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Disney Magic Bands will be encouraged.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis required that theme parks would need approval from the Orange County’s Economic Recovery Task Force, a panel of business and community leaders appointed by Mayor Jerry Demings, before he would sign off on their reopening dates. The task force voted to approve Disney’s plan.
On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, SeaWorld has also presented reopening plan and date on June 11, 2020. Last week, Universal presented reopening plan and date on June 5, 2020, for Universal Studios, Universal Islands of Adventure and water park Volcano Bay
