How many of you are excited to return to the magic of Disney on July 11th? I know I am; I’ve been waiting impatiently for this for the past 3 months!
However, to ensure that people can stay safe while still enjoying all the magic that Disney offers, many new regulations have been put into place. These systems will remain in place at least through September 26th, 2021, so it is crucial to understand all of the updates as best as possible so that you can continue to have fun during your vacation while staying safe.
To help you understand all the new regulations, I’ve created a concise list of the most important regulations you should note before your next visit to Disney.
