Baaghi TV, 28th May: Disney theme parks and hotels around the world have been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is reported that Walt Disney World presented its case for reopening to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force on May 27.
Shanghai Disneyland reopened on May 11 with limited capacity and other safety measures in place. Disney Springs in Orlando, FL, started its phased reopening on May 20.
Disney’s senior vice president of operations Jim MacPhee submitted a plan for Disney to reopen its Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks on July 11 and to reopen it’s Epcot and Hollywood Studios Parks in July 15. This plan will need to be approved by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis before it can move forward.
However, these parks will be opened subjected to strict safety measures, like temperature checks for the guests and employees, face-covering with the masks, and social distancing to be adhered to.
The parks will place an emphasis on mobile food orders and cashless transactions. Furthermore, they’ll also be employing “social distance squads,” made up of cast members who will encourage guests to practice good social distancing measures. This “squad” has been successful and a big hit with guests at Disney Springs so far, Disney said.
