As of now, Orlando area theme parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando have not announced reopening dates.
Universal Orlando’s CityWalk and Disney Springs have reopened certain retail and dining locations to guests and SeaWorld is performing test runs of their coasters with masked riders — but none of these companies have shared a timeline for reopening their theme parks.
Florida stepped into “full Phase One” of the state’s reopening plan this past Monday allowing restaurants, retail, museums, and libraries to increase capacity to 50%. In this phase, amusement parks are not cleared to open, but Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, requested for theme parks to submit plans for reopening after they have been endorsed by local officials.
According to WESH 2 News, this process begins tomorrow, May 21st, as the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force plans to meet and start listening to Universal’s presentation on how and when they plan to reopen.
The Mayor of Orange County, Jerry Demings, is required to sign off on these plans before they will be presented to Governor DeSantis. We will keep you updated when we know dates for Disney World and SeaWorld Orlando.
