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?
Thinking of going to Disney World for the VERY first time?
There are SO many things to consider and learn. Where do you stay? What’s the dining situation like? What types of tickets are there? It can all be a bit (OK, a LOT) overwhelming.

Today we’re breaking down everything you need to know about planning your very first trip to Disney World with lots of info, links, and videos that will make the process so much easier for you.
We’ve seen quite a few changes in Disney World recently! LOTS of festive decorations have gone up recently, and holiday snacks are popping up around the parks and resorts (one of which wasn’t even sure what holiday it was celebrating!), and the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance morning boarding group sign-up process has changed.
But that’s not all! Check out the 7 newest changes in Disney World that you’ll want to know about and prepare for in advance of your next Disney trip.
Halloween is officially in the rearview mirror and it’s ALREADY beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We stopped by Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what new additions have made their way to the park since our last visit. So, let’s take a look at all of the merchandise, holiday decor, and transportation updates from Hollywood Studios!
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.
As of August 24th, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort has officially reopened to guests!
Oh, how we’ve missed the atmosphere of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort! Now that the hotel has welcomed back guests, we wanted to see how things are running. So we stopped by to take a look at Disney’s most recently reopened hotel!
MORE resort hotels reopened in Disney World and we went a took a look!
We took a spin around the two most recently reopened hotels in Disney World and (as expected) there were a good number of changes. So here’s everything that NEW at The Swan Hotel and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort in food and construction! Take a look!
As the Disney World Resort hotels and theme parks continue their phased reopening, Disney’s many transportation systems have reopened generally in-step with the locations they serve.
We originally anticipated the Friendship Boats to reopen today, July 29. But when we checked the boat launches, however, we noticed that they are NOT operating!
