Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has announced that Disney World, as well as SeaWorld, will present their reopening plans to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force tomorrow, May 27th at 10AM EST.
These plans, which will lay out the guidelines and protocols to keep employees and guests safe, are also required to include a proposed reopening date. If the Task Force and Mayor Demings approves the plans, they will then be passed on to Governor Ron DeSantis’ office for his approval.
Mayor Demings noted that he anticipates their presentations to resemble the sort of presentation given last week by Universal Orlando, when they announced their proposed and subsequently approved reopening of June 5th for the general public.
Demings also mentioned that he was able to preview both Disney and SeaWorld’s plans this morning, but would not provide any additional details. Demings said that “we’re looking forward to sharing good news about their plans.”
It was noted that, “In preparation, an Orange County Inspection team visited SeaWorld and Walt Disney today” to make sure both resorts were in compliance with their proposed guidelines. These groups included Orange County officials as well as the county’s Department of Health.
After Demings’ announcement, Disney followed up with the following statement, posted on the Disney Parks News Twitter.
Stay tuned tomorrow morning for the latest announcements from Disney World, including what we anticipate will be a proposed reopening date for the theme parks.
