The Walt Disney World Resort will soon start to make changes to physical distancing, reducing the 6-feet measures gradually around the resort.
- Walt Disney World Resort will begin making adjustments to the 6-feet physical distancing in gradual phases at various areas around the resort.
- Dining locations, merchandise stores, and areas where Guests can temporarily remove their masks will continue to keep the six-feet physical distancing measures in place.
- The update has been noted on the Walt Disney World website under the “Physical Distancing” section of the “Welcoming You Back to Walt Disney World Resort” page.
- The news comes after Orange County, Florida, Mayor Jerry Demings announced in late April that physical distancing in all instances would be reduced from 6-feet to 3-feet, with masks continuing to be mandatory.
- Universal Orlando Resort had adjusted physical distancing markers at the resort from 6-feet to 3-feet as of last week.
Temperature Checks Being Removed from Parks:
- Both Universal Orlando Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort have announced that temperature checks would be going away.
- Universal had stopped the checks as of last week, with Walt Disney World doing away with the temperature checks starting on May 16 for Guests.
- Since the beginning of the phased reopening of Walt Disney World began last June, Guests had to pass through temperature checks in order to be admitted to parks, hotels, restaurants, and Disney Springs. If a guest had a temperature 100.4 degrees or above, they would be turned away.
