Take A Look At Disney Springs New Health and Safety Measures

Disney Springs re-opened this week and we sent Katie V. over to check things out. Be sure to read our previous article Health and Safety Policies For The Reopening of Disney Springs for specific details, but for now take a look at the new health & safety measures.

Guests will notice the differences right away as entry to Disney Springs has been limited. The next sign is that temperature checks are taking place at each of the open entrances to Disney Springs. At this point those include the Orange and Lime parking garages, ride share drop off, and hotel circle pedestrian bridge.

Guests queue up using markers on the ground that keep them six feet apart from the party in front of them. There are also hand sanitizer stations in this area. The scan is quick and uses a touchless digital thermometer. The screening is administered by healthcare professionals from Advent Health System. If a temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher that guest and their party will be denied entry to Disney Springs.

As we suspected, sandwich boards are set up in this area with the COVID-19 liability statement that we shared with you here.

You will run into many long time Disney fans that will preach the need to "look up" at Walt Disney World. This year is the year of looking down as well. Arrows to show how foot traffic should be flowing, 6 feet apart markings in queues, and short sandwich boards are placed throughout Disney Springs to encourage guests to be mindful of the current pandemic. Hint... keep to the right of the walkway, just as if you were driving.

Around Disney Springs guests will also find signage that encourages them to:

  • Wear a face mask
  • Stay 6 feet apart
  • Limit your handling of product
  • Where to stand
  • Where not to stand
  • Clean hands often with soap and water or with alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
  • Seek medical attention when experiencing flu-like symptoms

It seems like a lot when you read it, but the intention behind it is to keep both guests and cast members safe and healthy.

Many stations have been set up throughout Disney Springs for hand washing and sanitizing. These areas are where you will also see the most signage.

Disney is all about the details, and one of the most clever may be that all of the trash can doors are propped open to help avoid cross contamination.

Change is always hard, and no one likes a damper being put on their leisure time, but following these small measures are what is going to help bring back the magic. We're all in this together and each Disney guest needs to takes their place on the team to stop the spread.

One last thing. There's a friendly cast member that's encouraging guests to scan a QR code and fill out a survey to help the company make this experience easier for all.
