Florida theme parks getting ready to reopen
After months of shut down from Covi-19 ... The fun begins once again.
The "happiest place on earth" has always been just a few hours away by car, easily accessible and ever-present in the background of my life. That is until the pandemic forced the resort — and other similar centers – to fully shut down until further notice, and I found myself in a sudden state of serious Disney withdrawal.
A week later, on the morning of May 27, during the Economic Recovery Task Force’s next meeting, SeaWorld and Disney submitted their own reopening plans. On June 10, SeaWorld will open SeaWorld Orlando (and, it would seem, Discovery Cove and its Aquatica water park) for employees only, followed by June 11 for the general public; Disney staked out the dates of July 11 for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and July 15 for Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
Universal Orlando Resort officially reopened to the general public on Friday, albeit with new social distancing protocols, limits on capacity and updated health and safety requirements for parkgoers.
