Walt Disney World announced that they will soon begin the phasing in of reducing physical distancing at the following updated guidance from Orange County.
Disney has not made any immediate changes following the announcement, by Orange County, but has started to notify Cast Members that the process will take place over the upcoming few weeks.
Walt Disney World has stated that the reduction from 6 feet to 3 feet will take place only in certain areas at the parks, resort hotels and Disney Springs. The reduction won’t apply to dining areas, shopping areas or any area where guests can remove masks.
Disney has updated its website with the following description of its physical distancing policy:
Temporary adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing. 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.
Walt Disney World also announced that Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be re-opening more of its snack kiosks this week as the park’s phased re-opening continues to move forward.
Terra Treats, located on Discovery Island just across from Starbucks will be re-opening and serving up pizza slices.
Dino Diner, located in Dinoland U.S.A. will re-open and will offer hot dogs and churros.
