Due to limited capacity, guests will be required to have valid theme park admission and a hotel booking to have priority access to the new reservation system before the parks reopen. But one of the biggest questions many would-be-guests are seeking clarity on is whether they’ll even be allowed to travel to Florida because of where they reside.
Florida has spent the last month in Phase One of Governor Ron DeSantis’s Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step. Plan for Florida’s Recovery.
And today, Governor Ron DeSantis was present at Universal Orlando Resort which is currently hosting an Annual Passholder preview ahead of its June 5th reopening to the public. It was here that Governor DeSantis made an announcement that most of the state will enter Phase Two this Friday as well.
And now, Disney CEO Bob Chapek has just given a brief interview to CNBC with more details about the parks’ proposed reopening dates of July 11th for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, and July 15th for EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Earlier today, Universal Orlando Resort presented its reopening plans during a meeting of the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force.
Universal Studios has been closed since mid-March due to the global health situation. However, the resort took its first step towards resuming operations with the phased reopening of CityWalk, which began on May 14th. Earlier today, Universal submitted plans for the parks which included a reopening date of June 5, 2020 for the general public with additional safety measures in place.
As the phased reopening of Florida continues, the Vice President will visit the state to discuss plans.
Florida businesses are in the early stages of resuming operations, including CityWalk at Universal Orlando which partially reopened on May 14th, and Disney Springs, which will begin a phased reopening on May 20th.
Disney parks around the world have been closed for almost two months or more. Now, we’re starting to imagine what a reopened Disney will look like.
While we’ve heard a lot of discussions from local and state governments and Bob Iger has mentioned ideas such as temperature checks, we have yet to hear of a concrete opening date or plan from Disney in regard to their theme parks.
But some tourist destinations around the country have gone ahead with an outline of what health measures guests can expect when they return. We’re taking a look at two Las Vegas resorts, The Venetian and Wynn Las Vegas, to see what their plans are.
