Transcript for Bob Chapek tells Rebecca Jarvis about phased reopening plan for Walt Disney World
So Disney just presented its plans for appease reopening of the magic in the animal kingdom beginning July 11. How did you decide on that date. Well it's really a function of working backwards in terms of all the things that now that we can sort of forecasts were were going to be in terms of the cold that situation. How much time we need to open up responsibly. And our. Procedures we'll have to change dramatically there's going to be a lot more training a lot more sanitation lot more hygiene and of course social distancing. And theme parks Disney theme parks are very well planned out as you know in terms of trying to make sure that we can handle guess in a way that's going to. Create those magical memories and when something changes a substantively. S six with social distancing you essentially have to re engineer your people part of the business and that's what we're going to be doing. And we're also going to be introducing the brand new reservation system so these things take time and what we want to do is get it right the first time.

I think that's going to be the Silver Line while not everything inside the park will. Be open most things will be open. And that will of course do the math it's going to turn into a much shorter wait time so for those folks that are lucky enough to be able to kind of get any given that new reservation system.
