With Disney theme parks having lost $1 billion due to coronavirus closures, and tentative plans in place to reopen Walt Disney World Resort in Florida this July, Disney World’s shopping district, Disney Springs, in Orlando, recently reopened to the public back on May 20…with some added advice from a pair of Stormtroopers.
The following video comes from the Disney Springs YouTube account and it shows a couple of First Order Stormtroopers performing a handful of pre-recorded balcony skits about social-distancing and protecting oneself and others by using masks. Take a look…
“Yeah, I’m going to need you to move one male bantha’s length away, please,” says one Stormtrooper as she suffers the aggressive arrogance of her cocky co-worker.
When Walt Disney World Resort starts up again next month, the company’s plan outlines a limited capacity for the park, with visitors having to secure a reservation for the day they wish to attend in advance. The capacity of the park will then incrementally increase as the county furthers its reopening phases.
