Central Florida theme parks to begin presenting reopening plans to Orange County tomorrow

May 20, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The Central Florida theme parks will begin presenting their plans for reopening to the Orange County Task Force tomorrow.

Universal Orlando is expected to be first on Thursday, with Walt Disney World planned to present their plans at a later date.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis revealed last week that Orange County must endorse the reopening plans prior to submitting to the state, and that seems to now be about to happen.

Both Universal and Disney have opened their shopping and dining districts in a limited capacity - a first step towards resuming theme park operations.

So what's the reservation process and when will the AP timer start back up?

Six Flags was even teasing contactless bag checks.

Those were not specifically mentioned (unless I missed it) and it isn't in the docs.

Does the limiting contact points mean suspending the biometric readers?

I'm still thinking the week of the 14th of June for WDW. It will be the perfect way to complete the reopenings there in FL.

For anyone who wants live play by play action on WDW and Sea World reopening

Did you see the pictures? They were a perfect example of behaviors you DON'T want to see during a pandemic. The one thing they had going for them was that a good number of people were in what I hope was chlorinated water.
