Disney’s chief executive said he believes Disney World and Disneyland will reach total capacity this fall!
However, the CEO revealed that the theme parks are still talking about more details to keep Disney lovers safe during the ongoing pandemic!
Disney CEO Bob Chapek shared details of the parks' current and future status at a virtual tech-and-media conference hosted by JPMorgan.
During the appearance, Chapek shared that the company is assessing its options for social distancing guidelines like “the famous zero feet, versus six feet versus three feet.” He also said guidelines in general will be more relaxed as vaccinations increase and restrictions scale back across the nation.
Last week, Disney World announced that it would ease COVID-19 restrictions by making “gradual adjustments” throughout its parks, including phasing out temperature checks. Temperature checks had already begun being phased out for park cast members, though cast members and visitors over the age of two are still required to wear masks, with exceptions for “actively eating, drinking, or taking an outdoor photo.”
Visitor parties of 10 or more are asked to split up into smaller groups, and barriers will remain in some areas to encourage social distancing.
