VIDEO: Disney World President Josh D’Amaro Sends Well Wishes To 2020 Graduates
2020 is proving to a bittersweet year for graduates as the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that across the country, graduates were completing the last few months of their studies at home and many were denied standard rights of passage like High School Proms, Graduation Ceremonies and more.
That’s why a recent video message left on the Disney Cast And Community Facebook group is so touching. Let’s take a look:
In the caption for the video, D’Amaro said, “Congratulations on your accomplishment – and all our best for a vibrant future!
Josh D’Amaro recorded this special message supporting virtual commencement ceremonies for graduates across Central Florida. This includes many Walt Disney World Cast Members and their families.
For graduates on both coasts, spending time at Walt Disney World (especially for those in Central Florida) is a bit of a tradition. As of going to print, we aren’t yet sure when the theme parks will reopen. Disney World does plan to move forward with plans to open Disney Springs, its downtown shopping district beginning next week (May 20th.) Many are seeing this and the opening of Shanghai Disney earlier this week as a test run while The Walt Disney Company fine-tunes new procedures that need to be put into place to adhere to social distancing, testing and sanitation guidelines.
Walt Disney World Resort has stopped taking reservations until July 1st. As we reported this morning at MickeyBlog guests with reservations into the first week of June are being contacted to let them know their reservations will be cancelled. This means, that at least for the time being 2020 graduates will need to put their graduation visits to Walt Disney World on hold.
However, we expect more announcements to be made regarding re-openings soon so keep following along with us for the latest Walt Disney World news and updates!
Congratulations 2020 Graduates!
