Additional safety measures will include limiting attendance with an advanced registration and entry system. “Guests are required to purchase admission tickets valid on a selected date only and Annual Pass holders must make a reservation prior to arrival,” Disney said.
Increased sanitation and disinfection measures will also be implemented, and the staff will abide by government health and prevention procedures.
Additionally, cast members will receive training on “procedures with an emphasis on contactless guest interaction,” the press release states, which includes cleaning and social distancing. Cast members will also receive personal protective equipment like masks.
Disney generated more than $26 billion in sales at its Parks, Experiences and Products division in fiscal 2019, representing 37% of the company’s overall revenue.
But in Tuesday’s earnings report, the company revealed its Parks and Experiences unit was hit particularly hard by the outbreak. The segment saw a 58% drop in operating income compared with last year.
