Disney Florida Theme Parks Will Reopen in July
Disney plans to reopen its four parks in Florida this July, but with very different experiences. Here’s what you can expect if you plan to visit Disney Orlando this summer**.
The Washington Post ~ ” Walt Disney Co. revealed plans to reopen its four theme parks in Florida in July with masks, temperature checks, smaller crowds and social distancing — and without the parades, fireworks spectaculars or character meet-and-greets that are typical hallmarks of the experience.
The entertainment giant will be the last of the major theme park operators to reopen in the Orlando area this summer; competitors Universal Studios Florida and SeaWorld Orlando both intend to welcome visitors in June.
‘In preparing to reopen during this unusual time, we have to manage our theme parks in a very different way from what we’ve known before,’ the company said in a statement.
Disney said it planned to open its Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks to the public on July 11, followed by Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15. SeaWorld intends to open June 11, and Universal Orlando Resort has approval for a June 5 public reopening of its two theme parks and water park on June 5.” ~ The Washington Post
