Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida will enter Phase 3 of reopening. Restaurants were busy over the weekend. How will it affect the theme parks?

Walt Disney World Communications and Walt Disney World Resort released the following statement in reaction to the news:

“We received the Governor’s executive order and are evaluating it to determine what it may mean for our business. We are not making any immediate changes. As a reminder, face coverings are still required at Walt Disney World Resort.”

Here was the reaction from LEGOLAND:

“Since our reopening on June 1, LEGOLAND Florida Resort has safely welcomed families to play in our parks and stay in our resorts with enhanced health and safety measures, including more than 200 hand sanitizer locations, cashless payments, temperature checks upon arrival, and consistent cleaning practices. Our Resort and company leadership will continue to evolve these procedures and capacity management to remain in line with state and local government recommendations so families can continue to have the confidence to play safely at our Resort. We are excited to provide a fun, safe place to celebrate Halloween at our Brick or Treat event in October with outdoor, contact-free trick-or-treating, exclusive LEGO® characters and seasonal shows.”
