Would you visit Disney World today?

After closing down in March in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus, Disney World opens its doors on July 11. The amusement park won't be the same as when guests last walked the streets Magic Kingdom and EPCOT; Disney is enforcing social distancing and masks for all guests ages 2 and up. But even with the new rules, some would-be park-goers are a little hesitant to make the trip. Would you go to Disney World today?

According to Disney World's new guidelines, visiting the parks will look very different post-reopening. New guests can expect to have their temperature taken before entering the park, to wear a face mask during their visit and to remain six feet apart from other guests when waiting in lines. Meanwhile, Disney World says it will be doing its part by ensuring extra cleaning, limiting overall park capacity and separating guests by empty seats on rides. 

The team at Disney World believes it can safely reopen under these circumstances. As the park puts it in its own "welcome back" message: 

As we prepare for a phased reopening, we’ve made updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.
It may be different from the last time you visited. But together, we can find new ways to create magical moments—and memories to treasure.

Meanwhile, the state of Florida, where Disney World is located, is experiencing a rapid rise in coronavirus cases. Critics agree: It's too soon to reopen Disney world. Per Variety's Elaine Low: 

...one epidemiologist warns that reopening Disney World at this particular moment would make the park “the happiest place on Earth… for the coronavirus.”

According to professor and leader of the UCAL COVID-19 Rapid Response Initiative, Dr. Anne Rimoin, reopening Disney is nothing short of "inviting disaster." 

“There are several hospitals that are running out of beds in Florida, with health workers warning that there are not going to be enough ventilators and enough rooms, and cases in the state are breaking new records daily,” said Rimoin. “Moving forward with reopening, I think, is inviting disaster. I’m not sure that’s what the world is looking for right now.”
