Mayor of Orange County expects Disney to submit reopening plans next week

May 22, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has said that he expects Disney to submit its reopening plans to the Orange County Task Force next week.

In an interview with CNBC Demings said, "Disney has given an indication that next week they will submit their plans. Once they do, we will schedule that for approval briefing before our Economic Recovery Task Force as well. So at this point, it is an undefined time or date, but we do look forward to seeing that sometime next week."

Universal submitted plans yesterday to reopen June 1 2020, with a gradual capacity managed opening for employees only. Passholders would be added on June 3, followed by an opening to the general public on June 5. The plan was unanimously approved by the Task Force and will be presented to the Florida Govenor this morning where it is expected to be given the go ahead.

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.

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.
