Plans were presented during an Orange County meeting yesterday, headed by Jim MacPhee, Senior Vice President of Operations of Walt Disney World Resort.
During the presentation, it was announced that Disney plans to deploy a series of soft reopening tactics for select audiences several days prior to the July 11 reopening with Cast previews and affinity soft-opening preview days. While the actual dates of the previews are still unknown, these preview days will include Annual Passholders, DVC members, and Club 33 members. Advance reservations may be required, and further details have yet to be released.
The phased reopening proposal passed with zero opposition from the Task Force, and has since been endorsed by Mayor Jerry Demings. It is currently pending approval from the Florida Governor.
Resort hotels and water parks were not mentioned during the reopening proposal, however it has been confirmed that DVC resorts and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will reopen starting June 22.
