(CNN) — The wait is over.
Epcot and Hollywood Studios are set to welcome guests on Wednesday.
Want to know what’s going on? CNN Travel will be posting updates from inside the Magic Kingdom periodically during the day.
A big deal
Disney World is the biggest of big deals in the theme park universe. And the eyes of the theme park world will be on it this weekend.
Josh D’Amaro, the chairman of Disney Park, Experiences and Products, made an Instagram post of an “amazing morning” with cast members before the reopening.
Here are some of the things will be watching today:
1. Reservations and capacity
And capacity will be limited. We’ll be watching how many people show up, and what it’s like in a park with fewer people.
2. Temperature checks and safety measures
Every guest must have a temperature check before entry. Those who register 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher must submit to a second reading. If she or he registers 100.4 or higher again, that person and their party can’t enter.
We’ll be seeing how that works.
Guests at Disney’s Riviera Resort can see Minnie, Mickey and the gang during breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera, the resort’s rooftop restaurant. During the phased reopening, characters will maintain proper physical distancing while parading through the restaurant.

Like restaurants anywhere else, Disney has had to upend its normal dining experience and find new ways to deliver food and drinks to hungry and thirsty guests.
4. Rides and attractions
We’ll see what’s open and how long the waits are on rides and attractions.
In its news release, Disney said it expects to open up very popular attractions on Saturday such as Space Mountain, The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
