Today is a BIG day in theme park news!
Disney World has announced a proposal for reopening its parks on July 11th and July 15th. On top of the new health and safety guidelines, theme park reservation system, and “social distancing squad“, Disney World is also looking at the potential for implementing “relaxation zones” where guests would be able to take off the required face mask.
While theme parks around the world have been requiring guests to wear masks when entering (including Disney Springs and Universal Orlando), Disney World understands that it can be difficult to wear them constantly throughout the day.
Currently, the parks are looking into the potential for setting up “relaxation zones” where guests will safely be able to take off their masks. Although we don’t have any details on how these will work yet, there will most likely be increased social distancing measures in place in these areas to keep everyone safe.
While guests will still be required to wear masks at all times during the parks, these relaxation zones would give visitors the opportunity to breathe without the mask. Since the heat in Florida can be challenging with personal protection equipment (or PPE), this would be a chance for guests of all ages to “take a break” while they are in a Disney World park.
Even though we don’t have any more details during this time, we will continue to keep you updated on more information!
