Theme parks have started to reopen — as I experienced at Universal Studios in Orlando — and Disney parks in Florida and California have announced plans to open their doors. But what will the experience be like for guests? We attempted to answer that question on this week’s TPG Talks webinar, as we were joined by TPG’s Director of Travel Content — and self-described Disneyholic — Summer Hull to consider questions like:
- How will tickets and ride reservations work?
- How will masks in the Florida heat work?
- Which rides and services will be restricted or closed entirely?
If you’re considering booking a trip to any theme park this summer, you’ll definitely want to review the recording of the session:
