Last week, Florida announced the formation of the Re-Open Florida Task Force, including theme park representatives such as Josh D’Amaro, who is President of Walt Disney World.
Throughout their meetings, the task force has discussed potential timetables and steps that could be taken to re-opening businesses in the state during the global health crisis. One big focus? The theme parks, including Disney World.
According to local Orlando news, a special committee in the Re-Open Florida Task Force is “tasked with figuring out a timetable on when local tourist attractions like Disney and other theme parks should re-open.”
The state of Florida relies heavily on tourism, with visitors from around the world coming to the Sunshine State for everything from beach getaways to theme park vacations.
Florida tourism officials urged the importance of a “gradual” reopening for tourist attractions, including theme parks. Because of this, so far, the special committee has discussed a plan that “would include first local and state residents heading to state attractions, then national and international visitors.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has tasked the committee with bringing recommendations for Florida tourism reopening, including the theme parks, by the end of this week.
We will continue to bring you updates about the Orlando theme parks, including Disney World.
