According to a Tweet from Cristina Alesci, Disney World is still on track to reopen mid-July. The tweet reads:

JUST IN: An Orange County official tells me the county has no plans to revisit a decision to reopen Disney’s parks in Florida. “That decision rests with @Disney officials and the governor,” says a county spokesperson.

Walt Disney World is reopening in phases — Magic Kingdom park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom will open the gates on July 11 while EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios plans to open on July 15. The Resorts on property also will be opening up in phases with each resort having a different reopening date.

Remember that when Disney World reopens to guests next month, things at the theme park will look a lot different. Social distancing measures will be put in place, excessive cleanliness, encouragement of mobile orders, plexiglass, and as we previously mentioned, the elimination of character meet and greets. Also being eliminated from the parks are parades and fireworks along with other similar entertainment that draws a crowd, and much more.
