Disney World: locations of every theme park reopening in the US
Walt Disney World has announced the reopening in Orlando, Florida, but not all locations will resume after being shut down for months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Disney World has announced its plan to reopen in Orlando, Florida, beginning 11 July, while Universal Orlando will do the same but on 5 June. They also announced the new set of regulations established to keep everyone safe and healthy amid the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
Theme parks to open their gates
Every state has its own plan to reopening businesses after months of being shut down due to the outbreak but the process of reopening has begun. On the east coast many of the major parks have started their process of reopening.
As mentioned before, Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort in Florida have set dates for reopening, but Six Flags are yet to, and have only worked on the guidelines that will be enforced in the park to make it safe for everyone.
Meanwhile Universal will start the process of reopening their Florida parks on 1 June, but will not be open to the public until 5 June. They have announced that on 3 and 4 June they will host invited guests and some annual pass holders to check out the new regulations.
The major theme parks in California - Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, Legoland and SeaWorld San Diego - were given the green light to open by Gov. Gary Newsom during the third phase of the state's four-stage plan, but there are no concrete dates yet. So the parks are currently just working on a plan to keep everyone safe amid the outbreak.
“Phase 3 is not a year away. It’s not six months away. It’s not even three months away. It may not even be more than a month away. We just want to make sure we have a protocol in place to secure customer safety, employee safety and allow the businesses to thrive in a way that is sustainable,” Said Newsom.
