Here is a major key quote from the interview by CNN:

Well, I think what we can say is that we’ve done everything we can to open up responsibly. Taking the guidance of local health officials, state health officials, national health officials, plus our own well qualified doctors on staff to create an environment to create new operating procedures, to create new policies, to do new training, new standards of hygiene. So that when a guest comes in we can continue the trust that guests have always had with the Walt Disney company and enjoy the parks so they can make those magical memories that last a lifetime.

It sounds to me like they’ve got this under control as much as it can be.

That being said, there’s no way to minimize the risk to 0% at this point.

Unfortunately, we have not yet reached what scientists refer to “herd immunity”.

This basically means people can still easily spread the illness from one person to another.

Even so, I think Disney knows what they’re doing, and I personally trust them to make the right decision.
