Last week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida is moving into full Phase 3 of its reopening. The latest update means theme parks such as Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort are allowed to increase capacity.
DeSantis supports those parks in the easing up of COVID-19 capacity restrictions as cases in the state appear to be declining. He made his remarks after applauding their health and safety measures of Orlando’s theme parks. Furthermore, it helps knowing that health officials acknowledge that the parks have not been hot spots for spreading the coronavirus.
However, Disney is not looking to make any immediate changes yet. They issued the following statement in response to the Phase 3 reopening:
“We received the Governor’s executive order and are evaluating it to determine what it may mean for our business. We are not making any immediate changes. As a reminder, face coverings are still required at Walt Disney World Resort.”
Walt Disney World plans to maintain its current health and safety guidelines for the foreseeable future. They are closely monitoring the nation’s COVID pandemic, so they want to help provide a safe experience for guests.
Those planning upcoming Disney trips will still need to abide by mask rules and social distancing practices.
