PHOTOS: Chairman of Disney Parks Josh D’Amaro and Newly-Appointed Walt Disney World President Jeff Vahle Greet Guests at the Reopening of Disney Springs

It’s a big day today at Walt Disney World, as Disney Springs has reopened its gates following the Coronavirus pandemic closures. To commemorate the event, the newly-appointed Chairman of Disney Parks, Josh D’Amaro, was out and about this morning to help greet guests and ensure everything is running smoothly.

D’Amaro was pleasantly greeting guests in the Town Center, and posing for socially-distanced photos with them.

Joining D’Amaro was the newly-appointed President of Walt Disney World, Jeff Vahle, seen below on a bridge near Morimoto Asia.

Signage encouraging social distancing has been installed across Disney Springs, and the officials are ensuring they comply with the new rules.

If you plan on visiting Disney Springs soon, don’t forget to social distance and remain courteous around other guests, whether they chair the parks or otherwise! You can review all of the new Disney Springs guidelines here, and don’t forget to read up on some of the Frequently Asked Questions here.

  1. Great to see new leaders out in the parks/shopping district! How many times in the past did that never happen!!

  2. I just got back from a week in pigeon forge and Gatlinburg Tennessee and you know what people are not wearing masks in public tourist areas over there. I think the mask thing has gotten out of hand and companies like Disney are only doing this to protect themselves from liability issues. Just wash your hands often and keep a good distance away from others and you will be fine. Stop inciting paranoia, we will never get back to normalcy with things the way they are.

    1. As a healthcare worker from the northeast, I’d hate to see anything happen in Florida like what happened to us up here. So, its all about ‘I look out for you. You look out for me’. Let’s give science a chance to catch up and develop a vaccine before this virus spikes again. Maybe if we all work together, we can beat this thing.
