Governor DeSantis Stands by Disney World Reopening This Week, Knows it Will Be Safe
Even though COVID-19 numbers in Florida have spiked the past few weeks, Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis still stands behind Walt Disney World’s reopening plans for this week. He says that when the Parks reopen he has no doubt that Disney will offer a safe environment for Guests and Cast Members.
When DeSantis was asked by a reporter about the plans theme parks have in place to keep everyone safe and healthy, he said the following:
The theme parks have been doing great. I mean, Universal. If you look at what they are doing, and that’s I think the lesson. We have to have society function. You can have society function in a way that keeps people safe. And, when you have all of the different procedures that they have in place, people are going to say it’s a safe environment.
Disney, I have no doubt is going to be a safe environment. I think that where you start to see the spread is just in social situations where people let their guard down. Usually like a private party or something like that. So that’s kind of what we’ve seen. But, I think that the folks that put a premium on safety, that’s showing you, you know, we’re able to handle this. Have society function. You still want people going to work but do it in a way that takes some basic precautions.
I’m really impressed with that Universal’s done. And, I’ve looked at Disney’s plan and it is very, very thorough.
Walt Disney World will begin Cast Member previews at Disney’s Animal Kingdom tomorrow, July 7 and Wednesday, July 8. Annual Passholder Previews will be held on Thursday, July 9, and Friday, July 10. Both Parks will open to the general public beginning Saturday, July 11. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will reopen July 15.
