Florida has been in a Phase One of reopening since May 4th, and now it seems they’re taking the next step.
In a press conference today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis explained the intention for the state to move to a “Full Phase One” on Monday. The new order loosens limitations on restaurants, gyms, and sports venues — but what does it mean for Orlando theme parks like Disney World?
The first thing to note is that the new order does NOT allow theme parks to open. However, DeSantis did directly address the next steps for theme parks in a call for them to submit detailed plans to the state about safety procedures and what day they are certain they can reopen safely and responsibly.
He also noted, since these parks have such a large effect on their surrounding communities, that theme parks should work alongside their local governments on their plans for reopening and that local government officials will need to endorse any potential plans.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all Florida policies that could have an effect on Disney World!
