A LOT has been going on with Disney Stores this year.
Not only have we seen many Disney Store locations being closed, but like at Disney Parks, health and safety guidelines have also started to change for guests visiting the stores.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen Disney World update its health and safety policies several times.
Temperature checks were phased out, mask requirements have been relaxed, and physical distancing is being reduced all around the parks and resorts. Today, we noticed another update to the physical distancing requirements on Disney’s website!
We’ve been closely following the situation with the Disney Cruise Line.
As the big debut of the newest ship, the Disney Wish, draws nearer, the Disney Cruise Line’s departures have remained suspended. However, the CDC recently announced requirements for cruises to resume under its Framework for Conditional Sailing Order, and we’re starting to see more progress.
And as these guidelines change, we’ll be seeing more updates from other businesses as they begin to loosen those guidelines in their own establishments.
Disney has been making quite a few changes to its health and safety measures recently.
Masks are no longer required outdoors, temperature checks have been removed, and park capacity is increasing. Social distancing is also being reduced — and we’ve already seen proof of that around property. On our recent trips to the parks, we’ve seen social distancing markers being removed in quite a few places.
It’s been quite the day at Disney World!
Temperature checks are no longer required to enter the park. The plexiglass dividers on Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are gone. More guests are being seated during the A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. And guests are no longer required to wear face masks while outdoors (with some stipulations).
Y’all — a LOT is happening in theme parks right now, as the CDC begins recommending looser health and safety guidelines.
Recently, Disney World announced it would phase out temperature checks, and gradually reduce social distancing requirements. Recently, the CDC released NEW guidelines for masks, suggesting that fully vaccinated people no longer needed to wear masks in most indoor and outdoor settings.
Disney World has required face masks on property since the parks reopened in July 2020.
Right now, all guests are required to wear an approved face covering at ALL times, unless when actively eating or drinking while stationary, or while taking outdoor photos. However, with COVID-19 vaccines rolling out throughout the country and states planning a return to “normal,” we’re taking a look at when we could see these policies shift.
We’re here to share a BIG Disney World update!
Since the parks reopened last summer, Disney World has been operating at a limited capacity. This ensures that all guests are able to uphold Disney’s health and safety procedures as best as possible, especially social distancing. Park capacity has increased since the reopening, from 25% to 35% back in November. And today, we learned that park capacity is increasing again!
Disney World has made some HUGE changes over the past several months, and each day seems to bring a new update.
We’ve already seen Disney World beginning to load riders on every row of many attractions, and Disney has officially announced it will be phasing out temperature checks at the parks soon. Some popular live entertainment is coming back to the parks, and quite a few other things are returning to “normal.” Now, we’ve got a BIG update from Disney World when it comes to physical distancing.
