Disney World reopening questioned 
Disney's amusement parks are making their way back to normalcy.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, amusement parks around the world have struggled to find ways to stay operational and safe as they draw massive crowds of traveling tourists.
Disney parks shut down for a time but reopened earlier this year with safety measures in place.
On Tuesday, Disney announced via an online release that several of their live entertainment experiences would return to Walt Disney World in Orlando this fall.

The release did not announce when exactly the meet-and-greets would return but did explain "the environment is not right just yet for hugs and autographs," but guests will have the opportunity to have "individualized time" with the characters.
