No state decision yet on the reopening of Walt Disney World but still expected to be passed

May 28, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

During a late afternoon 5pm press briefing, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings confirmed that he has sent a letter of endorsement supporting the reopening of Walt Disney World to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, but has yet to receive a response.

The Governor has been very vocal in his support to reopen the state, and it is expected that he will approve Disney's reopening plans in the coming days.

Disney plans to reopen Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom July 11, with EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios to follow on July 15 2020. Soft openings will occur before those dates with Cast Members and other invited audiences.

Walt Disney World will be the last of the Central Florida theme parks to reopen, with Universal beginning on June 5 and Sea World on June 11.
