In order to get the approval ball rolling on their anticipated July 11th reopening date, the parks were required to undergo an inspection by local health professionals. This group took a look at how ready Disney World is to institute their proposed plan. Let’s take a look at what they found out and the conclusion they came to!

Jon Weiss, a Director for the Planning, Environmental and Development Services Department in Orange County, explained the results of the inspection to the Task Force today. The team performed inspections in both SeaWorld and Walt Disney World yesterday and determined that both properties were prepared to implement their proposed plans.

The inspection team was made up of Florida Health Department and Orange County officials including two epidemiologists, an EMS Medical Director, and some government officials.

According to Weiss, the team looked into wellness protocols for employees and the guest arrival process including parking, temperature checks, security, and ticketing. They evaluated the health operations in restaurants with mobile order and table separation and queue management with social distancing and changes in seating on rides as well.
