Disney reopens remaining theme parks

Published on : Friday, July 17, 2020

Walt Disney finally decided to reopen its two remaining theme parks days after reopening two theme parks in Florida amid the rise in COVID-19 cases. On Wednesday, the entertainment giant reopened the Epcot Theme Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios after a closure since the month of March.


The latest move marked the completion of Disney World’s theme parks reopening that began last weekend as Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom welcomed back visitors. The parks were the last of Orlando’s major theme parks to reopen. Both Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando opened their doors last month. All of the parks will now be functioning under new restrictions.


The number of visitors being allowed has to follow social distancing measures. It would be mandatory for all visitors and employees to wear masks and get their temperature checked upon entering. Disney also requires reservations for entry at present. The parks will also not feature any live shows since the reopening caused a labour dispute between Disney and its performers.


Disney employees will also not be allowed to take photos of visitors in front of Cinderella’s Castle since it involves touching the tourists’ cameras.  Despite the parks being reopened, not Disney World’s entire 77,000-member workforce has been called back to work because of the limits on attendance. A coalition of unions that represents about 43,000 workers mentioned that only about 20,000 members have been called back to work.
