One of the biggest post-closure changes visible to guests when they travel to Disney World these days are the plexiglass dividers on rides. Over time, some rides have these barriers installed, like on Rise of the Resistance and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, to increase the ride’s capacity. Other rides, particularly fast-moving ones, originally opted instead to load every other row to allow for physical distancing.
While we visited EPCOT today, we noticed that the boarding process has changed on Test Track.
Previously, each party was given their own car on Test Track. Today, however, we noticed that both rows in each car were being boarded with guests, with no plexiglass barriers in between the rows.
Our reporter shared with us that when they rode today, they were seated in the back row with a different family seated in the front, with no plexiglass barrier.
Like we mentioned before, these adjustments are typically done in order to increase a ride’s capacity. We’ll continue to keep an eye on all of the rides across Disney World as these updates continue and we’ll make sure you know what each ride experience is like so you can assess what is best for your travel party.
