Attractions Reopening at Disney World and Animal Kingdom

While Disney World and Animal Kingdom are planning on reopening on July 11, there will ultimately be some changes. If you’re planning a trip to the theme parks, it’s best to read up on their official statements regarding tickets, reservations, closures, and openings as things are updating regularly. Regardless, the Fantasy World resort in Kissimmee is open and taking every precaution to provide our guests with a safe, entertaining environment. If you’re looking for a great home base to visit any of the parks when they reopen, Fantasy World is ideally located to make the most of the parks and the wealth of other attractions throughout Central Florida.

In order to ensure the appropriate social distancing in the parks, some features, perks, and events will remain closed for the time being. Currently, the parades, fireworks, dining passes, and FastPasses+ are on hold, even after the reopening, though Disney is constantly assessing to try to keep the experience as enjoyable and positive as possible.

There are plenty of attractions and events still taking place. For example, Character Cavalcades will continue along the parade route throughout the day, featuring Mickey & Friends Cavalcade, The Royal Princess Processional, Fantasyland Friends Cavalcade, A Goofy Cavalcade, and Tinker Bell & the Lost Treasure. Main Street Philharmonic will also still be performing.
