Disney Springs has unveiled the first portion of its phased reopening plan— and there’s a major health precaution that will be enforced: face coverings.
Following the phase 1 unveiling, Walt Disney World President Josh D’Amaro clarified some of the measures in an email to cast members:
Following recent state and local guidelines permitting the reopening of some Florida businesses, we’ve seen a strong interest in what our next steps may be. As we plan for the future, we’re keeping the health and well-being of both our cast members and our guests at the forefront of planning efforts.
Today, I’m pleased to share that we’re preparing for a phased reopening of select locations owned by third-party operating participants in the Disney Springs shopping and dining district, starting on May 20. We continue to monitor conditions and look forward to welcoming each of our guests back with enhanced health and safety measures in place including the changes below:
Limited capacity based on Florida state and local guidelines:
- Appropriate physical distancing
- Requiring both our cast members and guests to wear face coverings
- Additional cast safety training with a focus on limited-contact guest services and enhanced cleaning procedures”
