Walt Disney World reopened to the public over the weekend, allowing guests to enter the theme park’s Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom for the first time since it closed down in mid-March.

Disney released a chilling video, welcoming guests “home” to Disney World.

The footage shows Disney cast members staring into the camera, welcoming people home. They’re wearing face masks — a sign of the times — and shown sanitizing different locations.

The video became popular on Twitter Sunday morning. According to Slate, Disney deleted the video from Twitter.

But it was found on Instagram. So, check out the video.

Twitter decided to dunk on the video with a number of remixes, using horror film music to give the video a creepy feel. In face, people remixed the video to the sounds of the film “Us,” adding an entirely new creepy vibe.

See some of the remixes below.

Disney World has issued a number of guidelines to keep people safe, including a face mask requirement, increased sanitation and physical barriers to keep people socially distanced during the coronavirus pandemic, which I’ve written about for the Deseret News.
