Abigail Disney Voices Opinion on Walt Disney World Reopening
With the phased reopening of Walt Disney World only days away, many folks are unsure about the necessity of the parks opening back up due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
One of these skeptics includes Abigail Disney, granddaughter of Roy O. Disney (the co-founder of The Walt Disney Company). Abigail went to Twitter to share her skepticism, writing: “Somehow opening is OK in Fla, but not in CA? What’s the difference? Very different governors is all I can think of. I can’t speak for what’s happening behind the scenes in CA, but Fla’s gov is, how shall I put this, more “pro-business” than Ca’s I guess.”

Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure had plans to reopen on July 17, though now the reopening is currently delayed indefinitely. The State of California will issue theme park reopening guidelines sometime after July 4. California’s Downtown Disney‘s plans to reopen on July 9, however, currently remain unaffected.
Walt Disney World still plans to reopen on July 11 with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and July 15 with Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Cast Member Previews are set for July 7-8 and July 13-14 while Annual Passholder Previews will be held on July 9-10.
