Current Disney Theme Parks Chairman and former Walt Disney World Resort President Josh D’Amaro has shared a social media message in honor of today’s Disney World reopening.

D’Amaro shared a photo of a group of Cast Members in front of the remodeled Cinderella Castle and wrote:

We had an amazing morning with the Cast before reopening the park today. I’ve missed you all. So happy to be together again.

D’Amaro also posted a series of photos on Instagram yesterday, accompanied by the caption:

Had a great day walking Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom with Bob and @jeffvahle. We talked with lots of Cast and AP guests, practiced physical distancing and had a great day. Looking forward to tomorrow’s reopening. #togetheragain

“Bob” refers to Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek and Jeff Vahle is the current Disney World President. Vahle took over in May when Disney reassigned many of its executive posts.

The four photos D’Amaro posted on his verified Instagram account featured him social distancing with Cast Members at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom park.

D’Amaro also gave his social media followers a glimpse of how quick service dining establishments will look during the phased reopening of Disney World. He posted at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, showcasing new plexiglass sneeze guards to limit contact between Guests and Disney Cast Members.

Whatever your thoughts are about Disney World’s phased reopening at this time, it has been clear that Guest and Cast Member safety has been Disney’s top priority throughout the temporary closure of its six theme parks.

New health and safety measures coupled with the Incredi-crew’s efforts will help Disney Park Guests feel as safe and secure as possible during these unprecedented times.
