It's a big week for Orlando. Walt Disney World is opening Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on Saturday, July 11th.

EPCOT and Hollywood Studios will follow on the 15th, with a modified International Food & Wine Fest beginning immediately when EPCOT opens.

As you can imagine, there are plenty of new rules and guidelines in place at the parks in an attempt to protect against Coronavirus, and cast members have been testing out the new rules all week.

You will need a reservation to enter the parks, hand sanitizer stations everywhere, social distancing will be found in pretty much every possible place, your temperature will be checked at the gate, and you will go through touch-less security, and you must wear a mask. If you don't have a facemask, they have mask vending machines at the front gate, and you can - of course - purchase unique Disney masks in their gift shops.

Walt Disney World has clarified that when they say masks, they mean that you MUST wear a mask with ear loops or ties. Other types of "face-coverings," including bandanas and "neck gaiters"/face wraps, will not be permitted.
