Disney World Orlando Opening; Disneyland Still Closed

The State of California’s guidelines don’t allow Disneyland to open at this time. When Disneyland will be allowed to open is anyone’s guess. However the State of Florida and Disney World is a different story. Disney World in Orlando has reopened many locations in Disney Springs, their shopping and dining district and will be reopening all four theme parks very soon!
Walt Disney World Resort has proposed a reopening date for Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 11th, and a reopening date for Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th. Once the parks reopen, Disney will implement a new theme park reservation system. This system will require guests to reserve their arrival in advance to assist with capacity limits. Disney also mentioned that select experiences will be modified and that there will be no parades, fireworks, or character meet and greets for the time being.
