Update: The Orlando Sentinel reports Legoland Florida released a reopening date prior to the governor’s official approval. You can read the full story here, but we will keep you updated once the governor gives his official word.
As Florida theme parks are planning to reopen, they have been submitting proposals for consideration to their local government, followed by Governor Ron DeSantis.
Recently, Legoland announced that they had submitted their plans, which had already been endorsed by the Winter Haven City Commission. However, in order for the park to open, the Governor had to sign-off on the park’s new health and safety procedures in place.
Today, Legoland announced that the park had been approved to reopen on June 1st to the public — however, the plan is still pending approval from the governor’s office.
Legoland will be adopting a maximum capacity of 50% (or 6,000 people), encouraging guests to wear face masks and providing them to anyone who doesn’t have one, and preventing guests and employees who have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher from visiting the park.
Spatial distancing will be enforced at the park’s attractions, dining locations, and parking infrastructures. There will also be hand-sanitizing stations placed throughout the park, along with signs explaining the new guidelines.
The hotels will also be going through frequent disinfecting of high-touch areas and rooms to keep guests safe. You can check out the full list of Legoland’s new procedures on their website.
