'The beginning of a horror movie'? ——The Disney World reopenWatch
Although，Florida's Walt Disney World theme park reopened on Saturday in a state hard-hit by the coronavirus, as the World Health Organization issued a fresh warning that countries should step up pandemic restrictions.
Website shows "by visiting Walt Disney World Resort, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19"The idea that the park would open in the face of a raging outbreak in the area sparked backlash across social media. The state has experienced record-breaking numbers of new coronavirus cases, inspiring Disney World employees to form a petition asking to delay the reopening.
CNN business editor Alexis Benveniste said it “feels like the beginning of a horror movie”.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he was not concerned about the increasing positivity rate in Florida and theme parks welcoming guests again，and he believed Disney World reopening woule be a success.
It is said that Disney World made the controversial decision to reopen to the public in the hopes of gleaning story ideas from all the parents who will inevitably die after catching the virus in the Park.
“This pandemic will provide us with enough tragic stories to give us plotlines for years to come. Who knows? Maybe if you bring your aging mom, you’ll see your story up on the big screen some day! How magical!”
Jeremy Williams, a screenwriter for Disney, shared in his boss’s excitement.
The dream of U.S. government and the higher-ups at Disney :gaining as much money and land as you can whilst stepping on people's necks to get there.They force base employees to work and risk their lives. There shouldn't be a liability waiver for that.Some of those people will end up in the hospital, some will live with life altering complications, some will end up in the ICU. Some of those people will end up dying.

Presumably Disney World is an almost exclusively outdoor attraction (and hopefully sensible mitigations will be put in place for any indoor elements). From what we have seen so far, virus spread outdoors is significantly lower than indoors. With the addition of social distancing and hygiene, I don't see why this will have any notable effect on the spread of the virus.
