    Two questions- 1- How do we find out if there is still a travel ban for New York State residents? 2- Are water parks re-opening ? And do you need reservations?

    Hello Bruce! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are all getting ready for Returning to a World of Magic as the Walt Disney World Resort prepares to welcome Guests!

    In the initial reopening phase, the Walt Disney World Resort will focus on reopening the magic of the four Disney Parks - Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom (both scheduled to reopen July 11th) and EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios (both scheduled to reopen July 15th). Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach water parks will not be included in this initial reopening. The Walt Disney World Resort will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and make a decision and announcement regarding water parks as soon as additional information is available. The good news is that Guests will be able to continue to cool off by visiting their Disney Resort Hotel pools! This is a great way to relax after spending a hot day in the Disney Parks!

    In regard to your question about residents of the Empire State visiting the Sunshine State, please refer to information posted on the State of Florida website or contact your travel agent. Please visit the Disney Parks Blog (daily) or continue to refer your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel for the most up-to-date information!
