Disney World already had a big round of layoffs for cast members a few weeks ago, but unfortunately there has been another round. This time a lot of the shows at different parks have been affected.
Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. There were some great guesses, but Doug and Katie were able to pinpoint where in Disney World these are located. Congratulations!
As it was announced earlier, Disney World has proposed to open their parks in phases. The reopening plans were unanimously approved by the Orange County Recovery Task Force and now moves on to approval from the governor.
UPDATE: The reopening plan has been approved by the Orange County Recovery Task Force! It now moves on to get approval from the governor.
During the Orange County Recovery Task Force meeting Disney World proposed a reopening plan. Of course, the focus is on opening safely when doing so, but the big news is the proposed reopening date.
It looks like we are getting one step closer to having an idea of when the parks will open. Today it was announced that both Walt Disney World and Sea World will present their reopening plans.
Disney’s #VoicesFromHome has been a popular feature these past few months. It was started after the parks closed and has included music from the Dapper Dans (both coasts), Voices of Liberty, and Mariachi Cobre.
Disney has been taking it week-by-week cancelling reservations. As of right now, they are accepting new reservations that begin on July 1, 2020 and beyond. However, as the statement below explains, that could change.
Disney Springs opened yesterday to minimized crowds, however the rest of the Disney World Resort remained closed. That fact was reinforced today as guests with reservations booked for the second week of June received cancellation notifications.
Starting Wednesday, some third-party owned establishments will open. However, there were still questions as to when the Disney owned businesses would open their doors. Now we have an answer.
Disney has been treating us to some fun videos of performers from both Disney World and Disneyland. Today the Disneyland Dapper Dans are back to sing a spooky favorite.
