Walt Disney World has announced the first step in its return - a phased reopening of the Disney Springs shopping and dining area, to begin May 20.
The initial phase of the reopening will include selected retail and restaurant locations owned and operated by third parties that choose to return.
“Disney Springs will begin to reopen in a way that incorporates enhanced safety measures, including increased cleaning procedures, the use of appropriate face coverings by both cast members and guests, limited-contact guest services and additional safety training for cast members,” Disney said in its press release.
Operating hours will be limited, as will parking and capacity inside locations. The Walt Disney World theme parks will remain closed until further notice.
Shanghai Disneyland will reopen on May 11, becoming the first of the Disney theme parks worldwide to return. The Shanghai resort reopened its Disneytown shopping and dining district on March 9, a little over two months before the theme park now is scheduled to return.Tweet
