And as the global situation develops, Disney has updated its policies to bring back the magic but still protect guests — including specifying that there’s no eating/drinking allowed in line and noting that masks cannot be removed to eat or drink, except when stationary and physically distanced. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been making changes to their policies over time as well, and here’s how some of those important changes could potentially impact your future Disney Vacation and how you plan for it.
Disney World has been following strict health and safety guidelines since the parks reopened. Guests are required to wear face masks and are required to have their temperature checked before entering the parks or Disney Springs.
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, indicates that temperature screenings may not be as effective in pinpointing coronavirus cases as once believed. How did they reach this conclusion and what could this mean for Disney’s procedures? We’re breaking it down for you here.
A LOT is different in Disney World and it can be hard to keep track of all of the changes.
Now, MOST of the changes make sense. We totally get the mask mandate, temperature checks, and social distancing. But we’ll be honest, there are some things (or lack thereof) that are just downright confusing for us! Let’s take a look at some of the bigger head-scratchers we’ve experienced in a reopened Disney World!
Disney World has been open for almost a month now and it definitely feels…different.
It is a new normal — and we’re not the only ones still adjusting. Disney is having to contend with some complex and unexpected situations in and around the parks. Already, we’ve seen a few changes to how Disney World is handling its reopening; let’s take a look at a few of the BIGGEST!
Disney World has been in the process of reopening for over a month now and we’re getting used to the new normal.
We’ve been adjusting to the new health measures like face masks and temperature checks, and it seems Disney has done some adjusting of its own. Though we’ve already had to get our temperatures checked in Disney Springs and at the theme parks, Disney World just updated its temperature screening mandate to apply to table-service restaurants in the resort hotels.
We’ve had a LOT of feelings about returning back to Disney World during the first round of reopenings this week.
Although we expected to see distancing measures and new places to spot characters, there were quite a few changes that Disney sprung on guests when they entered the parks. Whether you’re someone who really loves riding attractions or you’re all about the food, Disney World has really shaken things up when it comes to how the parks are working now.
We had a few of our team members arrive at Magic Kingdom this morning to attend the special Annual Passholder preview that’s happening today!
And just about all of us took a different method of transportation to get here! See what our team experienced driving their own cars to Disney World today as well as riding the monorail and using the Disney World buses to get to the gates of Magic Kingdom! We also checked out the ferryboats on our way out of the park today too!
When the domestic theme parks like Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando began to reopen, we’ve shared what it was like to return to a theme park — and to pick up a few clues about what Walt Disney World would be like when it reopens!
We already knew there would be LOTS of similarities to other theme parks, like physical distancing measures, contactless menu and payment options, and required face coverings, which we had already checked out at Disney Springs and at the reopened Disney resort hotels. But, never one to play follow the leader, Disney has also gone off the beaten path with quite a few new and unique reopening procedures at Disney World.
A lot of these differences have had to do with the fact that Disney World is so MASSIVE that there’s really no comparison to other theme parks. So, of COURSE, they have to break the mold — they don’t even fit into it in the first place! Let’s look at some of the ways Disney World has flipped the playbook on theme park reopening.
Disney is a pretty massive company, and that means they’re constantly making big decisions — especially right now.
These decisions are ESPECIALLY controversial when it comes to the theme parks. With the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World coming next year and the global health crisis causing unprecedented changes, it can be easy to feel a little (or a LOT) mad at how Disney is handling things. We’re taking a look at some things you SHOULDN’T be mad at Disney for…and some things you maybe SHOULD!
Can you believe the Disney World theme parks have officially reopened?
Disney has put a lot of work into the modifications made for the reopening. Disney World has already seen changes like face mask requirements and distancing measures, but a few of these updates might actually become a part of everyday park life.
