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.

  1. I was going in July with my grandkids and daughter in law. However we are very worried about a lot of shows not being open (if rumors are true) no fireworks or parades. We understand, but we may postpone until things settle down. We have our meals and firework dining experience that will have to be cancelled. I sure hope that you will be able to have these items returned before the end of the year.

  2. I had been planning my July 2020 family vacation for the last 18 months, but no….I’ll now be putting it off until next summer. It’s just too soon and too many unknowns.

  3. Really hopeful for our July trip. The “phased” approach leaves me a little leery, but totally understand.

    1. Yes! I do understand why they are doing a phased opening, but as long as there will be masks, we will hold off our visit. We currently rescheduled our March visit to March of 2021. We will change again if necessary.
