Florida: Walt’s Disney World in Florida has reopened to the public on Saturday after four months of lockdown, despite of the increase in COVID – 19 cases in the state.
Ensuring adequate safety measures to reduce the chances of catching the deadly virus, Walt Disney Co welcomed a limited number of guests to its two most popular parks at the wide spread Orlando complex, the world’s most visited theme park resort.
The Chairman of Disney’s parks, experiences and products division, Josh D’Amaro said that the executives have responsibly planned the opening of the theme park in phases amid the pandemic.
“This is the new world that we’re operating in, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon,” D’Amaro said in an interview, on Saturday, adding “I feel really good about our environment,” ensuring that they’re taking this seriously.
The theme park has eliminated parades, fireworks and other activities that draw crowds, as well as up close encounters with Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and other characters. Instead, characters appeared on floats or on horseback.
