Walt Disney World’s website has updated its text about physical distancing requirements in shops and dining areas. The website no longer mentions six-feet of distance and talks about distancing more vaguely.
Below is a comparison of how the Experience Updates page has been modified.
While we will reduce physical distancing measures for Guests across many areas with a gradual, phased approach, six-feet distancing measures will continue in all dining locations, merchandise stores and in areas where Guests can temporarily remove their masks.
Adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing for Guests. These measures will be reduced in a gradual, phased approach.
Walt Disney World is rapidly returning to normal. We’ve already seen Disney’s transportation systems increasing capacity and removing distancing markers. Distancing is also being relaxed on attractions and in queues. Many queues look like they did before the shutdown with guests standing close together.
Disney is gearing up for larger crowds this summer. More resorts will be reopening and theme park capacities will be increasing. But, the current obstacle appears to be finding enough cast members to operate Walt Disney World’s shops and restaurants.
Guests planning to visit Walt Disney World this summer should be aware safety regulations are constantly changing.
