The company wants to make sure that is can still present is a quintessential Disney experience when the Walt Disney World parks reopen. That is why Disney is opening later than Universal Orlando and SeaWorld.
The capacity of the Disney World parks will be a function of 6-foot social distancing guidelines issued by the CDC.
Disney does not expect to get further guidance from the government regarding opening or operating protocols.
Disney decided early on that it would not open the parks unless they can cover their variable costs (hourly wages, utility bills, etc.).
The company will take baby steps to add more guests while still opening responsibly.
Chapek said he doesn’t think masks and temperature checks will discourage guests. The company still has many reservations on the books and has seen very encouraging demand at Disney Springs.
