Physical distancing to be reduced at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World will begin scaling back physical distancing at its theme parks, resorts and Disney Springs in the coming weeks. Disney will follow the new guidelines that allow for three feet of distance between guests instead of six feet.

Disney has reportedly notified cast members that the change from six feet to three feet will occur over the next few weeks. However, six feet will remain the standard for dining locations and other areas where guests may remove their masks.

This change should pave the way for increased capacity in the near future. It will also prevent lines for attractions from spilling out into guest walkways.

If you’ve visited Walt Disney World in the past, three feet of space between guests is equivalent to how things have almost always operated. Only the most congested lines and shows saw guests crowded shoulder-to-shoulder. Three feet is about how far apart guests would be spaced in a normal queue under normal circumstances.

Guests should expect to see the distancing change roll out gradually around Walt Disney World property.
