Disney Springs will be the first part of the Walt Disney World Resort to open back its doors. Disney will be observing the process along with the reopening in Shanghai to take their lead and see how the new health and safety protocols are followed. Followed.

In a recent interview with CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Chapek shared that it is imperative for guests to follow the set protocols in order for the resort reopenings to be successful.

The current safety protocols in Shanghai Disneyland include:

  • Temperature Screenings
  • Facemasks Required
  • 30% guest capacity
  • Fireworks and Parades canceled
  • No character meet & greets

We anticipate seeing similar guidelines in the US Disney Parks upon reopening.
