Parents not ready to head back to Disney, other theme parks, poll finds

Theme parks in Central Florida have reopened, but a new poll finds that most parents are still not ready to head back to the attractions with their kids.

A poll conducted by Morning Consult and The Hollywood Reporter found that 78% of U.S. parents say it’s too soon to return to any theme park this summer.

The survey polled 2,200 Americans between July 29 and Aug. 2 about how safe they feel returning to amusement parks and other leisure activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Summer 2021 looks more promising for the theme park industry, with more than twice as many (47%) saying they’d consider going to an amusement park then.
