As detailed in today’s reopening proposal, Walt Disney World will be implementing new safety and measures. As per the proposal, guests will now be required to wear face coverings, maintain social distancing throughout the parks (including in attraction queues), and will be temperature screened before entering the parks. Park capacity will be limited, as will capacity on the various modes of Disney transportation, and in restaurants and shops.

McPhee mentioned that guests will also need to reserve their days at the park. More information regarding the reservation system will be forthcoming.

Walt Disney World restaurants will offer guests increased mobile ordering options. Merchandise locations will feature plexiglass dividers at points of sale, as will food locations. A cashless environment will be encouraged.

Additional safety reminders will be found throughout the Walt Disney World parks.

Character meet and greet locations, parades, and fireworks will temporarily be suspended.

The reopening proposal was approved by the Task Force. The plan will now be reviewed by Orange County Mayor, Jerry Demings. If approved by Mayor Demings, the proposal will be sent to Governor Ron DeSantis for his vote.
