We are now a few days away from Walt Disney World’s reopening and to mark the occasion, Disney Parks has shared this very special “Welcome Back” message:
As the sun rises on its four theme parks, the Walt Disney World resort begins to come back to life. From the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Fans will see sights they are familiar with: attractions coming online, and beloved characters dancing on parade floats. But fans also see something new: cast members in face masks, sanitizing roller coaster seats and signs, posting new signs with social distancing instructions. These Cast Members are preparing to welcome Guests back into the parks.
From the first shot of the Partners Statue in front of Cinderella Castle to a glimpse of the stormtroopers in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney Parks rekindles the magic waiting at Walt Disney World. Everything in the parks is clean and orderly.
Walt Disney World’s phased reopening begins with two preview days exclusively for Annual Passholders on July 9, and July 10 at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Both those parks will officially reopen on Saturday, July 11, followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15.
“We believe very much so we should be opening,” Walt Disney World Resort Senior Vice President of Operations Jim MacPhee said on Good Morning America. “Again, we’ve been focused on this, we’ve got the right protocols in place, and it’s a Guest-choice environment…We’ve really focused on ensuring that we have a really thoughtful and methodical reopening strategy that’s phased on various attendance levels that will allow us to launch, learn, and adjust.”
