DISNEY WORLD TARGETS JULY 11 AS REOPENING DATE FOR PARKS
The Disney Springs shopping and dining complex at the Walt Disney World Resort has only recently reopened for guests after closing months ago amid the coronavirus health crisis. Visitors are currently required to undergo temperature screenings, wear masks and abide by new physical distancing protocols, some of which are indicated by ground markings or physical barriers — and some of which are shouted at you by a couple of wisecracking Stormtroopers.
