Walt Disney World plans to reopen in stages once the coronavirus concern subsides. The Florida task force has set guidelines for the parks to reopen.

The first stage of opening will have the parks operating at 50% capacity. If that goes well and conditions continue to improve, the second stage will allow the parks to operate at 75% capacity. There is no set date for when these stages will begin, however.

The guidelines also recommend that markers be placed 6 feet apart in ride queues to allow for social distancing. Visitors who are age 65+ and/or have a higher risk of getting COVID-19 are also encouraged to not visit the parks.

Cast Members will be required to wear facemasks while at work and will have their temperature taken before they start their shift. They will also regularly wipe down and disinfect surfaces and railings. Touchless hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the park as well.

There is no word on when this staged reopening will begin or when Disney will be able to operate at full capacity again. Disney is committed to keeping all guests and cast members safe and healthy.
