Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom Re-Opened 2 Years Ago Today!
Wow! So much has evolved at Disney in the past few years and the Pandemic has brought so many new changes. But today the magic is back and Disney is thriving.
Can you believe Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom Re-Opened 2 Years Ago Today?
Welcoming Guests and bringing back some much-needed Disney Magic, let’s take a look back at that re-opening day!
Disney Shut Down
COVID-19 officially shut down all the Disney Theme Parks in March 2020. There was so much uncertainty at that time as COVID was new and there was little information.
Disney fans and eager guests waited patiently, and they were once again welcomed when 2 of the 4 Disney World theme parks reopened 2 years ago today.
Reopening Day at Disney
Enthusiastic guests re-entered the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 11, 2020. Though they entered a slightly different world.
This new park experience included multiple safety guidelines, new restrictions, and health and safety precautions.
Mandatory masks, 6 ft social distancing, and extensive cleaning procedures created a new norm.
However, guests did not mind and were happy to experience Disney fun again!
There were also limited resort offerings. Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Contemporary Resort reopened, but you could only enter the hotel with a room or dining reservation.
Another new change? In order to eat inside the parks you had to utilize mobile ordering at all dining locations.
Guests heavily relied on the My Disney Experience app to place their orders and schedule a pick up time.
Wow! So much has changed since those re-opening days!
Disney World Today!
While we are still feeling the impacts of the pandemic, Disney World is thriving and opening more and more every day.
Entertainment is back in full swing and just this month Disney announced that character dining is returning to multiple locations.
Character meet and greets and hugs are returning and everyone is experiencing the Disney magic once again!
Here’s a video Disney Parks Blog shared days before the reopening!
Now is it great to visit Walt Disney World and enjoy the magic again!
