“Upon reopening, Theme Parks, the Disney Resort Hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote social distancing.”

We have a trip planned the end of August. Not sure that I want to keep it if there are a lot of closed areas. As for Dining, will consideration first be given to those of us that made our reservations and have kept them? Or are we going to get there and find out we don't have the reservations.

I would like to know about guest staying on property, will they have a better chance at entering the parks? I mean with the lower capacity.

Im not going anytime soon. Number 1...Im not going with covid 19 still rising in states and Number 2....why would I pay all that money to get a quarter of the magic? I will wait until I can experience the true magic of Disney again!

Interested to know what will happen for everyone on dining plans. Disney have offered free dining to many who had to rearrange and then there’s those who were originally booked in for same times. If restaurants are running at half capacity will they be able to offer enough dining to accommodate appropriate use of everyone’s dining plans? What if people have booked their meals 180’days out and isney decide to cancel as can only half full a restaurant?
