Disney World’s phased reopening will begin with Magic and Animal Kingdom on July 11 and Epcot and Hollywood Studios on July 15, said Jim McPhee, senior VP of operations at Disney.
Before July 11, there will be a soft opening for “select” guests as a way to test out the safety protocols.
Guests will also have to reserve their park tickets in advance.
Among the safety protocols in place are: temperature screenings; face covering requirements; limiting the number of people to improve physical distancing; and more plexiglass barriers where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
The Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force approved the plan Wednesday. Disney also needs to receive approval from Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and Gov. Ron DeSantis.
