There are lots of ways that social distancing is encouraged and enforced in Disney World: from signage to barriers and more. There have been some changes in distancing measures over the past year. So, what does social distancing look like in Disney World now?
A number of things have changed at Disney World since the park closures earlier this year.
One thing that’s been rather different has been transportation. Disney buses have a new loading and seating procedure, there are dividers and other safety measures in place in the Monorails, and the EPCOT monorail is not available. The Friendship Boats that take guests at certain resorts to and from EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are also not available at the moment…but they will be soon!
We’ve always loved traveling on the Friendship Boats on Crescent Lake that stop at EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, and the Swan and Dolphin Hotels. There’s just something so leisurely and relaxing about riding a boat around Disney World.
After Disney World’s reopening, the Friendship Boats were supposed to resume running again on July 29th. However, that didn’t happen, and until recently, the boats have not been seen at all.
While we now know Disney World won’t reopen with parades, firework displays, or character meet and greets, more new details are emerging.
Since Disney World’s proposal took place this morning, we’re learning about more modifications that are being made to guests’ experiences upon the theme park’s reopening. First reported by WDWMagic.com, Cast Members employed at Disney World are being informed about a few details that weren’t shared earlier.
