Small Crowds, Short Lines And COVID-19 Merchandise Headlined The Reopening Of Disney World This Past Weekend

After nearly four months of being closed, Disney World reopened their gates this past Saturday.

Only certain parts of the park have reopened as Disney is following a plan to slowly reopen the entire park.

The combined attendance numbers rounded up to 16,000 guests.

With the reduced attendance numbers, guests were able to ride their favorite attractions in a less amount of time.

The wait for the highly-popular The Seven Dwarf Mine Train had a wait time of only 30 minutes. The wait for Pirates of the Caribbean ranged anywhere between 10-25 minutes.

According to travel journalist and Disney expert Seth Kubersky, the ambiance was noticeably different.

Kubersky noted that the park had set up  “relaxation stations” around the park where guests can take a break to avoid dehydration and even take off their masks for a bit.

Ever the opportunists, Disney even released COVID-themed merchandise such as shirts that read, “Together Again”, on them.

Only the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom reopened Saturday, however, Epcot and Disney Hollywood Studios will follow on July 15.
