The new clip was accompanied on the Disney Parks Blog with a letter from Disney Parks Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pamela Hymel, who also encouraged people to get vaccinated. You can read the whole letter below.

This initiative to promote getting the COVID-19 vaccines comes as Disney continues to push forward with phased reopenings in its theme parks around the globe. Recently, Walt Disney World recently relaxed its face-covering policy and opened up more capacity. Disneyland has also recently upped its capacity. Disneyland Paris is expected to reopen on June 17th.
