In order to get the approval ball rolling on their anticipated July 11th reopening date, the parks were required to undergo an inspection by local health professionals. This group took a look at how ready Disney World is to institute their proposed plan. Let’s take a look at what they found out and the conclusion they came to!
Walt Disney World made history today and presented their reopening plan and reopening date — after months of closure — to the Florida Orange County Task Force for initial approval.
Disney World has reopened many locations in Disney Springs, their shopping and dining district, this week, and will be reopening all four theme parks very soon!
Now that Univeral Orlando has successfully had its plan approved to reopen its theme parks to the public on June 5th, Disney World is about to undergo the same process.
Disney World will be presenting its plan to Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings at 10AM Eastern tomorrow morning. If accepted by the Mayor and his committee, it will be passed to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for final approval along with a possible reopening date for Disney World’s theme parks.
The full Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force met today to discuss and review plans submitted by several smaller Orlando attractions, including Gatorland and Fun Spot.

But many smaller attractions are looking to open sooner than that, with some attractions hoping to welcome back guests within the coming days.

The Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force is made up of several committees that discuss opening procedures for different business models within the county.
Today, we tuned into meetings of two of those sub-committees — the Reopening Business Work Group and the Bringing Back Tourism Work Group.
