In a recent report from CNN.com, these are the latest orders by state for California and Florida:


Last Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom was the first governor in the US to set mandatory stay-at-home restrictions to help combat the coronavirus.

Since the order went into effect, all nonessential services such as dine-in restaurants, bars, gyms and convention centers have been shut down.

Essential services, such as groceries, pharmacies, gas stations, food banks, convenience stores and delivery restaurants, have remained open. So have banks, local government offices that provide services and law enforcement agencies.

While the order is not being enforced by police, Newsom urged all Californians to stay at home. Residents who need to leave home to take part in essential activities are advised to practice social distancing.


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order mandating a 14-day self-quarantine or isolation period for travelers arriving from airports in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Although some media outlets are reporting Disney’s extended closure, this has yet to be confirmed. And Cast Members are still anxiously awaiting their schedules.

A cast member clarified a reopening statement shared on twitter by The Hollywood Reporter replying with the following tweet:

The headline is a bit misleading. Universal just announced theyll be closed till mid April. While disney has not announced this I can tell you as a cast member at wdw I’m 97% sure we are not opening april 1. we have not recieved our schedule for that week & its most likely (1/2)

b/c disney is waiting to announce something until after they finish negotiating with the union how we will be paid. We’re about a week out from the supposed open date and after shuttering the parks and resorts it’ll take about a week to get everything back up and ready (2/2)

Another Twitter user joked about the current Cast Member Schedule limbo with this tweet:

There is a lot of speculation around this subject, and even more, conversations happening about it on social media. However, no official announcement has been released from Disney regarding reopening dates for the resorts or Cast Member schedules.
