Which Walt Disney World Parks Are Opening July 11th?

Grab your Mickey Mouse ears and your magic wands! Disney World plans to re-open Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11th, and Epcot and Hollywood Studios four days later on July 15th.

The Orange County Economic Reopening Task Force unanimously approved of the proposed plan. All that's left is for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to sign off.

According to the Orange County Economic Reopening Task Force's meeting reported by Southwest Florida's NBC2, Disney World will take several precautions when allowing visitors back into the park. There will be temperature checks upon arrival for both Cast Members and guests. Additionally, enhanced cleaning will take place throughout the parks. Guests and Cast Members are required to wear face coverings when in the park. However, they are allowed to remove them when eating.

A new reservation system will be in place to allow a limited capacity into the parks. In order to discourage crowds from gathering, parades and firework shows will be temporarily suspended. New signage will be placed throughout the parks and resorts to encourage social distancing.

"Limited contact enhancements," such as contactless payments and mobile ordering at restaurants will be set in place. "High-touch experiences," like character meet-and-greets and playgrounds won't be part of the Disney experience just yet, according to Disney World senior vice president of operations Jim McPhee, Variety reported.

Disney World previously shut down in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. "While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remains The Walt Disney Company's top priority," Disney said in a statement when the parks initially closed.

Disney World Shanghai was the first Disney park to open on May 11 amid the coronavirus pandemic, limiting guests to 30 percent capacity. The Disney Springs shopping and dining complex in Orlando has already begun a phased reopening on May 20, with temperature checks and social distancing measures in place.

Face masks were required for entry at Disney Springs, and guests' temperatures were taken upon entry. If someone registered with over 100.4 degrees F, they were barred from the complex.

Additionally, Universal Orlando recently announced that they will reopen on June 5 at limited capacity. SeaWorld Orlando proposed re-opening June 11. Precautions to take place include face coverings, social distancing, new cleaning policies, enhanced employee training and temperature checks, among other things.

Florida previously reopened non-essential businesses, including stores and restaurants, early May as part of phase one.
