Osceola County to join Orange County in 'stay at home' order covering all of Walt Disney World property

Mar 25, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

If anyone was in any doubt that Walt Disney World would remain closed beyond the original announced March 31, today's announcement that Osceola County will join Orange County with a "stay home" order all but confirms an extension to the Walt Disney World closure.

Walt Disney World property is located in both counties, which means that the order from both Orange and Osceola covers all of Walt Disney World guest operations in Florida.

Orange County had already ordered all non-essential business to be closed from March 26 at 11pm to April 9 2020 at 11pm. The county definitions of non-essential include locations with amusement rides, carnivals, water parks, pools, zoos, museums, arcades, fairs, children's play centers, playgrounds, theme parks, bowling alleys, pool halls, movie and other theaters, concert and music halls, country clubs, social clubs and fraternal organizations.

Nearby Universal Studios has announced a closure through to April 19 2020.
