Walt Disney World has announced its plans to reopen its Orlando, Florida, theme park in July, with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom reopening July 11 and Epcot and Hollywood Studios reopening on July 15.

The park will enforce certain safety guidelines, including temperature screenings, wearing masks, keeping guests six feet apart in lines, and a guest reservation system.

Firework shows, parades, and "high touch" experiences like the character meet and greets will be suspended until "a later date," said Jim MacPhee, senior vice president of operations and chief operating officer at The Walt Disney Company.

New ticket sales are also suspended so the company can focus on guests who already have tickets and reservations.

🔦 Disney World is the second of the company's theme parks to open, following Shanghai Disneyland reopening on May 11.
