A number of changes to the health and safety procedures have been implemented in Disney World this weekend.
Since reopening, Disney World has implemented several health and safety measures to keep guests and Cast Members safe.
Not only are there face masks and social distancing markers, but many attraction and shops have received a plexiglass makeover. Many rides have gotten a plexiglass makeover in the queues, the loading area, and the attraction vehicles themselves, and today we noticed that more plexiglass has been added to an attraction in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Disney is constantly making changes to how it socially distances guests throughout the parks.
And plexiglass is a whole SAGA. Moral of the story: Disney seems to be moving towards seating every row on rides. The slower rides tend to get a plexiglass shield between those rows — think Frozen Ever After or Living with the Land. The speedier rides don’t. And in Disney’s Animal Kingdom today, we noticed another attraction was getting that plexiglass makeover.
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.
Plexiglass is slowly but surely taking over Disney World.
Plexiglass has been added to an increasing number of attractions both in the lines and on the rides. And, as plexiglass is added, wait times tend to decrease! Well, as we escaped to one of our secret less-crowded places at Disney World, we noticed that the ride to get there had a plexiglass makeover.
When we were making our list of must-see’s in 2020, there’s a lot that we just couldn’t have imagined. So, we’ve gone through our photo library and found 12 photos that your 2019 self probably wouldn’t have imagined capturing at Disney World.
Last week, we noticed that Slinky Dog Dash in Disney’s Hollywood Studios changed its loading procedure to begin seating guests in every row.
And just a few days before that, we noticed that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was doing the same. We’ve also seen the addition of plexiglass barriers between rows on more popular rides, such as Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Rise of the Resistance, with those rides also now loading guests in every row.
We noticed a new addition to the Slinky Dog Dash queue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Recently, several of the park’s attractions have received new plexiglass barriers, including Rise of the Resistance and Tower of Terror. And now, the Slinky Dog Dash queue has also received a makeover in the form of plexiglass dividers!
We’re super serious when we say that Living with the Land is one of our favorite rides in EPCOT.
Can you blame us? It’s GREAT. We love looking at Mickey-shaped fruits and vegetables. Well, today, we noticed a change to how Living with the Land is handling the new health and safety measures — they’ve added some plexiglass dividers.
