Florida Gov. DeSantis Says He Has “No Doubt” Disney Will Be Safe To Reopen

Disney fans are packing their bags and getting ready for Walt Disney World’s phased reopening beginning July 11 (Magic Kingdom & Disney’s Animal Kingdom) and July 15 (EPCOT & Disney’s Hollywood Studios). Today (July 6), Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke during a news conference stating Disney World will be a “safe environment” when its theme parks reopen this weekend. 


According to BayNews9, during a news conference on July 6 DeSantis was asked whether Disney reopening it parks amid rising coronavirus cases was still a good idea. DeSantis said the theme parks have done a great job, citing Universal Orlando, which reopened its parks last month, as an example.

“Theme parks have been doing great, I mean, Universal, look at what they’re doing,” DeSantis said. “And I think that’s the lesson. We have to have society function. You can have society function in a way that keeps people safe, and when you have all the different procedures they have in place … it’s a safe environment.”

DeSantis said he had “no doubt” Disney would be a safe and called the resort’s plan to reopen “very, very thorough.”

Disney World’s plan includes mandatory face masks for employees and visitors, mandatory temperature checks, capacity limits at the parks, increased sanitation and social distancing protocols.
