The magic is coming back.

Walt Disney World submitted their plans for reopening to the public, with a proposed opening date of July 11 for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and July 15 for Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The reopening of Walt Disney World parks after months of closure due to COVID-19 is pending, needing state and county approval. The Disney World that reopens in July will look much different than the last time crowds gathered together in the parks. Here are the changes that you can expect for the first phase of reopening.

Face masks are required: guests over 3 years old and cast members will be required to wear face masks at all times.

Attendance will be limited: Park capacity will be significantly reduced in order to be able to manage crowd size and promote social distancing guidelines. Shanghai Disneyland reopened with around 25-30% capacity, for reference.

Reservations will be required: Because of the limited capacity, guests will need to make reservations for park entry. New ticket sales and hotel reservations are being paused, so that guests with existing tickets and annual passes can make reservations. Ticket sales and hotel reservations will resume at an unannounced date.

Guests and Cast Members will undergo temperature checks before entering the theme parks

No character meet and greets or other “high touch experiences”: This includes makeovers like the Bibbidi Boppidi Boutique or playground areas.

No fireworks or parades: Disney will not hold any fireworks or parades at the time of reopening. As these are events that cause many people to gather together in the best viewing areas, this is an unfortunate reality of the precautions Disney must take.

Other practices to limit contact and the spread of the virus: Social distancing will be encouraged through signage and markers in queues. Disney will increase the amount that they clean surfaces. Contactless payment through Magic Bands or Apple Pay will be encouraged.

Other reopening news: Disney Springs has reopened with face masks required and social distancing guidelines. The World of Disney Store reopened today with a virtual queue. Disney Vacation Club resorts and Fort Wilderness will reopen June 22.
