Disney CEO: Attendance caps are beings raised, company considers future of masks
ORLANDO, Fla. [AP] – Disney’s CEO said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s decision to ease up mask-wearing requirements for fully vaccinated people is “very big news for us.”
On a conference call on Thursday, CEO Bob Chapek mentioned that there could be a change to the mandatory mask requirement at Disney parks in the near future because of the CDC’s new guidelines.
“Particularly, if anybody’s been in Florida in the middle of summer with a mask on. That could be quite daunting,” Chapek said. “So we think that’s going to make for an even more pleasant experience.”
Chapek said the parks had already started raising the number of people allowed in, as least in Florida, based on relaxed restrictions coming from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office, The Associated Press reported. He did not give a specific number regarding to increase.
“So I think you’re going to see an immediate increase in the number of folks that we’re able to admit into our parks through our reservation systems that we recently implemented,” Chapek said.
