While Disney World remains closed along with all of the other global Disney parks, we’ve already seen some of the ways Disney is beginning to handle a return back to “normalcy.”
Shanghai Disneyland changed their health screening protocol, effective today. This policy introduces new measures upon entering the resort to help keep guests and Cast Members safe.
When Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel reopened last month, guests would present their Health QR Code whenever they were entering any restaurant or dining venue. In order to enter the resort, only a temperature scan was required at first.
As of today, in addition to the temperature screening, guests must now have their Health QR Codes scanned when they enter the resort area. Only guests with a green QR code may enter the resort. Throughout China, colored codes are currently being assigned to all residents based off their personal habits and temperatures as recorded by individuals. Red and yellow are prohibited from traveling at this time, leaving just green coded guests free to travel to and enter the resort.
At this time, Shanghai Disneyland park remains closed until further notice. We previously reported on Executive Chairman Bob Iger proposing the possible idea of introducing similar temperature screening for the parks here in the US, which our readers recently shared their thoughts on.
It will be interesting to see in the coming weeks how this new protocol in Shanghai pans out, and whether or not we will see similar measures brought to Disney World and Disneyland when they reopen.
