    The Walt Disney Company closed all of its theme parks around the world, including those in Florida indefinitely, following the declaration of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March.

    Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) has approved reopening of Walt Disney World Resort and Sea World, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings tweeted on late Friday.

    USA Today reported on Wednesday that Walt Disney World Resort, which was closed due to coronavirus on 15 March, was planning a phased reopening starting on 11 July.

    It also said the visitors will be required to wear protective masks and their temperature will be measured at the entrance. In addition to that, social distancing markers will also be in place throughout the parks.
