Walt Disney World has begun to see some construction on its theme park rides as it prepares to reopen next month.

What’s happening:

  • Theme park construction has resumed at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, this week, with crews beginning work on major locations within Magic Kingdom and other locations, according to Disney fan site BlogMickey.
  • Disney is working on rides with about a month until the park reopens to the public amid the coronavirus pandemic.
  • The report suggests Cinderella’s castle received some paint. The Grand Floridian walkway at Magic Kingdom received an upgrade. And a new walkway has been added to the transportation and ticket center, according to Disney fan site BlogMickey.

Reopening Disney World

  • Disney World announced at the end of May that it intends to reopen in July, as I reported for the Deseret News. The park plans to reopen Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11. Epcot and Hollywood Studios would reopen on July 15.
  • Temperature checks, physical distancing, increased cleaning and hygiene measures will be added to the park to keep people safe aid the coronavirus pandemic.
  • The park plans to add contactless payments, mobile orders and less high-touch experiences throughout the park as well, as I reported for theDeseret News.
