Walt Disney World is working with the Florida government taskforce on reopening plans. The planning is not simple, but Disney does have an advantage: a large presence in China and experience in the reopening process there that seems to be further along.
The Shanghai Disney Resort has been closed since January, but Disneytown (the shopping district like Disney Springs) and Wishing Star Park (a nature park with walking trails, playgrounds, and an amphitheater) reopened in early March, although with limited operations.
Shanghai recently conducted internal tests for parades and shows. Now, photos on Twitter show social distancing marks on the ground in queues that would keep guests apart.
Could this be a preview of one of the changes we will see in Disney World?
Let’s take a look:
