Rides have been getting touch-ups, hotel rooms have been getting makeovers, and paint jobs have seen updates all around the resort. But one attraction was closed for a very specific reason — a new president has been added to Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents.
We’ve previously seen the CDC relax guidelines as states move towards a full reopening. Today, the CDC changed mask recommendations entirely for fully vaccinated individuals, stating that it is considered safe for those people to forgo masks both indoors and outdoors. And in response, President Joe Biden has issued a statement.
Recently, the CDC has stated that fully vaccinated individuals can gather indoors, and states such as Florida and California have begun to look at relaxing restrictions. And now, another announcement is on the way.
The COVID-19 vaccine is continuing to be administered all across the country.
This vaccine rollout is moving at a speedy pace — earlier this month, we reported that all adults would be eligible for their shot about a week and a half earlier than the original goal. States such as Florida have already given those ages 16 and up access to the vaccine. And now, the rest of the country will follow suit.
There’s BIG news about the coronavirus vaccine distribution in the United States tonight.
Previously, we’ve learned that the U.S. should have enough vaccines for every adult by May, and that people who have been fully vaccinated can safely gather together indoors without face coverings on (though orders about whether or not you can do that in indoor public places varies by state).
Things are constantly changing and the situation is still developing with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, we heard that the more contagious U.K. Variant was found in Orange County, Florida, we’ve shared about the new requirement for masks on flights and other forms of transportation, and we took a look at the new COVID-19 testing requirement that the U.S. might impose for domestic air travel. Now, it appears more COVID-19-related restrictions are under consideration, including potentially restrictions on domestic travel.
We’re already seeing a lot of big changes happening at Disney World in 2021!
From Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure getting closer to opening at EPCOT to continuing updates from Disney on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser (aka the Star Wars hotel), a lot is already going on at the beginning of the New Year!
Today is officially the United States Presidential Inauguration Day, which means a long-standing tradition is taking place in Magic Kingdom.
The Hall of Presidents is a unique and historic attraction located in Liberty Square. It features every single U.S. president in audio-animatronic form. So, it traditionally closes for refurbishment each time a new president is elected.
If you’re a big Disney fan, then you’re probably familiar with the name Bob Iger.
Iger served as the CEO for the Walt Disney Company for several years until very recently, but still currently serves as Executive Chairman. Iger seriously considered running for President of the United States and ultimately decided not to, but it seems that he may soon be involved again in public service. Iger is reportedly a possible candidate to be a United States ambassador.
