The park released an official statement on their website with some more details about what the park will look like come July 11.
We’re looking forward to reopening our theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and stores and doing so in a responsible way.
In this spirit, our destinations will continue to follow enhanced safety protocols based upon applicable guidance from health authorities and government agencies.
As we all must work together to promote the health and safety of everyone, cast members, as well as guests 2 years of age and older, will be required to wear appropriate face coverings in theme parks and common areas of resort hotels.
All guests will also undergo temperature screenings prior to entering a theme park; cast members will also have temperature checks.
Cashless transactions are recommended, and cleaning and disinfection procedures will be increased in high-traffic areas.– Disney World Website
