As part of the news about Disney Springs beginning a phased reopening beginning May 20th, Disney has also updated it’s advisory page about the Walt Disney World closures. In the new advisory, Disney talks about the steps it will take to ensure the safety of guests and cast as various experiences reopen. We have previously covered Orange County Task Force meetings that have outlined guidelines for the parks when they reopen, but Disney has since made it official that they will adopt some of the guidelines as seen in the updated statement below.
It is important to note that the theme parks and resorts remain closed indefinitely. Here is the new info, emphasis added by BlogMickey.com:
Upon reopening, theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing.
Additionally, attractions, experiences, services and amenities may have limited availability or may remain closed. We will provide more information as it becomes available. We reserve the right to cancel any reservations, admission media or purchases and provide applicable refunds.
Our focus remains on the health and safety of the entire Disney community—including the well-being of the Cast Members who are caring for and securing our parks and Resorts during the closure. We’re currently evaluating new and enhanced safety measures to help us all stay well.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
