Dress rehearsal performed for Disney cast members ahead of official reopening

Walt Disney World is preparing to reopen the first of its parks on Saturday and to get ready, a dress rehearsal was performed for cast members on Tuesday.

Cast members were allowed to visit Magic Kingdom on Tuesday, as the park tested safety measures ahead of its official reopening. Both Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom will open on Saturday, with Hollywood Studios and Epcot following on Wednesday. 

Video from inside the park showed Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell greeting guests as they paraded through Magic Kingdom. Disney princesses were also seen lining up on a balcony and waving.
