The “most magical place on earth” is preparing to welcome back guests with a new set of health and safety measures.  California’s Disneyland Resort proposed a plan Wednesday to begin a “phased reopening” as early as next month.

While shops and restaurants will reopen July 9, the theme park will reopen July 17. This falls on the same day it originally opened 65 years ago.

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the resort will significantly limit its capacity and require temperature checks as well as face coverings for both employees and guests.

“Guests are willing to wear the masks because they know that it’s for everyone’s good,” said Bob Chapek, CEO of  Disney. “You know I’ve had this mask on pretty much the whole day and you just forget about it after a while, and I think that’s going to be a part of maintaining the magic.”

The CEO also noted that the resort will also temporarily suspend events that draw crowds such as fireworks and parades.
