Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer Records a New Welcome Message For Those Coming Into MCO
When you fly into Orlando International Airport for your Walt Disney World getaway one of the first things you usually hear is a warm greeting from Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer welcoming you to the city. However, due to obvious changed to travel and restrictions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Dyer recently headed back into the studio to re-record his message.
Take listen here:
Airports nationally continue to operate for business, family and medical travelers. I've updated my @MCO message to urge travelers to help stop the spread by staying in and practicing physical distancing.
When the time is right, we'll again welcome leisure visitors to our city. pic.twitter.com/VYQQpkpvOQ

As of going to print, the four Walt Disney World theme parks in Orlando remain closed to visitors. However, Governor DeSantis spoke out earlier this week about the desire to get things up and running in the state after a five-week shutdown. A Task Force has been set up with a focus on Travel and Tourism so that the theme park managers can collaborate with state legislators to come up with a plan on a phased re-opening. Walt Disney World President Josh D’Amaro is on the board.
As we previously reported here on MickeyBlog, the task force eas expected to meet today. Governor DeSantis is hoping to have suggestions from the committee and re-opening timelines by the end of the week.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for further updates regarding Disney re-opening the theme parks.
