EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios to Reopen

The last of Walt Disney World's four theme parks will reopen to guests on Wednesday.

EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios were closed down in mid-March when the global pandemic was first reported.

The Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom opened to the public on Saturday.

There are lots of new rules in effect to protect Disney guests and "cast members."

Disney Park Pass Reservation System

To promote physical distancing, capacity will be limited as guests return to Walt Disney World theme parks. At reopening, guests with a ticket or Annual Pass must use the new Disney Park Pass system to make a reservation in advance for each park entry.

New Blended Festival Debuts at EPCOT

A new version of the popular EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will debut July 15 when the park reopens, continuing into the fall. The Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be the longest festival in Walt Disney World history, blending floral fun from the park's annual flower and garden event with the global goodies of the food and wine festival.

This new event will offer more than 20 signature global marketplaces, including Hawaii, Hops & Barley and Islands of the Caribbean. Additional tables will be in place throughout the park where guests can stop and remove their face coverings to enjoy festival dishes while maintaining physical distancing. Guests can take photos in front of the park's newest Remy topiary in the France pavilion and purchase merchandise from the 2020 International EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival.

Disney is reopening EPCOT and Hollywood Studios on the same day that Hong Kong Disneyland is re-closing because of the pandemic.
