The proposed plan has been initially approved by Mayor Jerry Demings and has been sent to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. If given the go-ahead, select Disney World theme parks will begin to reopen to the public starting on July 11th, with the remaining parks set to open on July 15th.
During Disney World’s proposal, we saw a sneak peek of some of the new health and safety signage guests will see once the parks begin to reopen. Disney officials have stated education, communication, and engagement with its guests will be paramount in keeping everyone safe.
Many of these new signs will be located at entry points as well as throughout the theme parks themselves, especially where crowds tend to gather. Most of the new signs offer friendly reminders, instructing guests to always wear their face mask and allow for six feet of space between themselves and other parties.
So far, these new signs look very similar to the ones we’ve already seen around Disney Springs and more recently at World of Disney today. Their colors are mostly muted beige, red, and dark green.
In addition to emphasizing the mandatory use of face masks and best social distancing practices, other important health and safety procedures will be addressed such as temperature screenings. All Cast Members and guests will be required to have their temperature taken before entry, similar to what we’ve experienced at Disney Springs.
At restaurants, new signs will direct guests to which tables they’re allowed to sit at as well as if they’re permitted to move chairs around. In stores, limited handling of product signs will also be installed.
These are just some of the new health and safety signs that are headed our way when the parks reopen. We’re sure there will be lots more to come, but for now, you can start familiarizing yourself with Disney World’s new health and safety procedures based on all the new signs we’ve seen so far!
