Orange County Has No Plans to Cancel Walt Disney World Reopening

Despite numerous petitions from Cast Members and rising numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Florida, Orange County officials have issued a statement to CNN indicating that they have no plans to revisit Walt Disney World’s approved reopening plans.

According to the statement, the county is deferring that decision to Walt Disney World and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the ones to make the final call on whether to cancel or postpone the reopening of the theme parks.

As confirmed cases spike across the state, Disney has not made any announcements regarding the potential to not reopen its theme parks. Just this week, the resort launched its new Disney Park Pass system, allowing guests with confirmed Disney Resort hotel bookings to make theme park reservations for as early as July 11. Starting Friday, June 26, Annual Passholders will be able to make reservations, followed by existing ticket holders starting June 28. Today, the state reported 5,508 new cases overnight, according to data published by the health department, bringing confirmed case totals in the state to 109,014.

With the regulations in place and being upheld, people are safer in Disney World than they are in their local grocery store.

So full speed ahead in spite of everything happening with the virus?
I love WDW and have missed it over the last several months. It might be a good idea to take a breath and very carefully rethink the opening.

the deal is, anyone can catch this virus and for quite some time younger people thought they were exempt from it. If they are that afraid to work there, then just give your resignation and I am sure there are plenty of people willing to take your place. It doesn’t matter where you work, or where you go for entertainment, people may or may not have it and its a chance you take. I dont want it either, but I dont plan on sitting home any longer either.

If everybody respected the social distancing guidelines all Cast Members and Guests could have a great time without further cases. The reason for the current spike is due to people ignoring the social distancing requirements. Be safe, follow the guidelines and enjoy without fear.

It is all of ours responsibility to follow recommend safety protocols so that we can get a handle on this virus now. There is no reason we can not get out and travel/socialize responsibly. I am from New York and have followed some of strictest safety guidelines and mandates and want to be able to visit my Magical Place responsibly. Please don’t close Disney World for the rest of us . ✨🏰
