Disney World Reopening

After announcing it will conduct a post-storm phased reopening of its Theme Parks tomorrow, the Walt Disney World Resort has now released details on what that will be.

The three biggest points are that each Theme Park will open one at a time, all of the Guests that have been sheltering in place inside the Disney World Resort hotels will have two hours of extra time inside the Theme Parks compared to the new-normal 30-minute time frame, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is still on for Friday night!

Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser will also resume its ultra-immersive multi-day voyages on Sunday, October 2.
