By purchasing an admission ticket(s) or pass(es) and/or by making a park, resort, and/or hotel reservation(s), and in consideration thereof, and in consideration for being able to visit and/or participate in attractions, transportation, and activities at the Walt Disney World Resort, I agree, understand, and acknowledge, on my own behalf and on behalf of any individual who uses a ticket, pass, or reservation made by me, as follows (collectively, the “COVID-19 and other Communicable/Infectious Disease Provision”):

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious communicable disease that can lead to severe illness and death.

I acknowledge that the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and any other communicable or infectious disease includes the risk that I will expose others that I later encounter, even if I am not experiencing or displaying any symptoms of illness myself. By visiting and/or participating in attractions,transportation, and activities at the Walt Disney World Resort, I agree to voluntarily assume any and all risks in anyway related to exposure to COVID-19 and any other communicable or infectious disease, including illness, injury, ordeath of myself or others, and including without limitation, all risks based on the sole, joint, active or passivenegligence of any of the Released Parties, named below.

A. In the event of a dispute, I agree to send a notice of dispute, which is a written statement thatsets forth my name, address, and contact information; the facts giving rise to the dispute; and therelief requested to the Released Parties at 500 South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, California 91521-7620, USA, Attention: Legal. The Released Parties will send any notice of dispute to me at thecontact information that they have for me. The Released Parties and I will attempt to resolve adispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute issent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, the Released Parties or I may commence anarbitration proceeding. I may instead litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets therequirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not I negotiated informally first.
B. If the Released Parties and I do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claimscourt, the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whosedecision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C.§ 1 et seq. Arbitration will be administered by JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services(“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMSRules”). The JAMS Rules and instructions about how to initiate an arbitration are available atwww.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through thesubmission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through thesubmission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in the State of Florida; provided,however, that if circumstances prevent me from traveling to the State of Florida, JAMS may hold anin-person hearing in my hometown area. The Released Parties and I agree to submit to the exclusivejurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in the State of Florida in order to compelarbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enterjudgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator may award damages to meindividually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extentrequired to satisfy my individual claim. In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating thearbitration (either me or the Released Parties) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, ifthe arbitrator issues me an award of damages and: (a) that award is greater than the amount of theReleased Parties’ last written settlement offer; or (b) if the Released Parties did not make asettlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and allprofessional fees for the arbitrator’s services, the Released Parties will reimburse me for the filingfees I incurred.
Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in the State of Florida, nothing in this arbitration provisionshall be construed as consent by the Released Parties to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard todisputes, claims, or controversies unrelated to this agreement.
This agreement to binding arbitration evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the FederalArbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, governs its interpretation and enforcement. This agreement to bindingarbitration will survive its termination. If any portion of this agreement to binding arbitration is deemed invalidor unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force.
Venue But For Arbitration: In the event that neither party elects to resolve disputes under binding arbitration, asprovided above, any legal action arising out of or relating to this COVID-19 and Other Communicable/InfectiousDisease Provision shall be commenced exclusively in the Circuit Court of the Ninth Judicial Circuit in and for OrangeCounty, Florida (or if such Circuit Court shall not have jurisdiction over the subject matter thereof, then to such othercourt sitting in said county and having subject matter jurisdiction). In any such action, I specifically waive any right tobring a class action or other representative or collective action (such as an action in the form of a private attorneygeneral). I SPECIFICALLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY.
