Disney wants to reopen Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom July 11. SeaWorld aims for June 11. Masks and temperature checks required.
Less than two hours after the meeting ended, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings sent letters endorsing the plans from Disney and SeaWorld to Gov. Ron DeSantis, who said earlier this month that theme parks need approval from the county before he signs off on their reopening dates.
There’s nothing about resorts mentioned here, but since this is the first time we’ve seen actual proposed dates for parks, I thought it would be of interest.
Details have not been publicly released yet. This is just an announcement that their proposed reopening plan has been submitted to Orange County. It must be approved by the county and then the state. So we don’t know exactly which attractions, shops, etc will be open and what conditions will be like in the parks.
