BREAKING: SeaWorld and Walt Disney World Reopening Dates
Both SeaWorld and Walt Disney World presented their proposed reopening plans and reopening dates to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force this morning, Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
SeaWorld has proposed a soft opening on Wednesday, June 10th, and opening to the public on Thursday, June 11th.
The Walt Disney World spokesperson stated a proposed reopening of Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park on Saturday, July 11, 2020, with EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios on Wednesday, July 15th. This phased reopening will include the following components: significant reduction in overall capacity, enhanced safety protocols, new pre-arrival theme park reservation system, temperature screenings, required face coverings, new handwashing and sanitation stations, barriers to support physical social distancing, select placement of plexiglass barriers, increased mobile orderings, and a temporary pause of character meet and greets and play areas as well as parades and fireworks that encourage crowds.
Orange County Mayor already previewed the plans yesterday ahead of today's presentations.
