What a weekend, right? We’ve seen SO many changes at Disney World over the past few days.
Temperature checks are no longer being done at the entrances of the parks. The plexiglass on a very popular attraction has been removed. Masks are no longer required outdoors (with some exceptions).
In addition, we recently noticed that the newly-reopened A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom had altered its seating arrangements. There, guests are now being seated in every row, albeit staggered. Today, we noticed a similar change at Walt Disney Presents: One Man’s Dream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
After Disney World reopened, the theater’s seating had every other row blocked off. After every four seats, three seats were blocked off to keep groups socially distanced. Here’s what it looked like then:
Today, though, no rows are blocked off. (As you can see, it was pretty quiet this morning.)
The blocked-off seats are also gone. Now, an announcement is made as guests enter the theater informing them that one seat should remain empty between groups.
This new seating arrangement will allow the theater to seat more guests for each showing. We’re also keeping an eye on other shows throughout Disney World to see if this is happening elsewhere — we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
