As covid-19 vaccines continue to chip away at new case counts, businesses around the United States and the world are starting to reopen. One of the international companies that is rapidly reaping the benefits of the improving pandemic situation is the Walt Disney Company, namely their many theme parks around the globe.

This month, June 2021, looks to be a noteworthy month for Disney’s parks division as every theme park is expected to be open for business later this month. The race between the variants and the vaccines will have a huge impact on the future of businesses that provide services that include the gathering of people, these include the Disney Parks, Disney Cruise Line, movie theaters, and more. The hope is that everyone will get fully vaccinated and the covid cases can continue to fall and variants will burn themselves out.

With that said, here is the current status of every Disney Park around the globe, along with any planned changes coming over the next two months:
