While Disney World has not yet given an update on a possible extension of its closure, we have just gotten an update from the Most Magical Place on Earth’s home, Orange County in Orlando, that gives us an idea of what may be to come.
Today, Mayor Jerry Demings has mandated that Orange County enact a shelter-in-place order for the next two weeks.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Demings has “mandated that Orange County will will order its more than 1.3 million residents to stay-at-home beginning Thursday”. Disney World is mostly located within Orange County, with part of the resort located in the neighboring Osceola County.
In an effort to flatten the curve, the order is set to take effect 11 PM on Thursday, March 26th, lasting for the following two weeks through April 9th. Demings said “he doesn’t take the order lightly and said the goal is to stop the spread as first responders as firefighters, TSA officers and medical professionals have been infected.”
While Disney has not yet announced what this will mean for their re-opening, we will keep you updated as soon as we learn more.
