I personally think that wearing face masks would be more beneficial if everyone was told to, rather than it being optional. Maybe the size of the park has something to do with the policy but some enclosed indoor spaces could still benefit from masks. It will be interesting to see what other parks do with this situation.

But is that what kids want from a trip to Disney World?

No, but then it's down to the parents to educate them about the reason why.

They've said meet and greets are going to be closed but that there will be some wandering characters. Guessing it'll just be full costumed characters. They can keep the person inside the costume relatively safe (not sure much will get through a mask and furry suit and they can spray it as soon as he's backstage) but there's still a risk of it spreading between kids. Wonder if there'll be discreet ways the characters can disinfect themselves.

30% capacity though... They'll definitely hit that in the first few weeks, lots of people have been eagerly awaiting it to open and seeing it as a rare chance to go to Disney when quiet.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach talking about their plans on re-opening. Seems they've been consulting with the government which suggests it's not too far away, possibly the next phase so we could see it happening within a couple of weeks.

The summer looks set to continue to be baking hot and people are desperate for proper days out so I could see most parks hitting their lowered capacity.
