How Will Disney Change To Ensure the Health and Safety of Their Guests?
Shanghai Disney also announced that they're employing "an extensive range of measures, designed to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all guests, Cast Members and Disneytown tenant employees, including strict and comprehensive approaches on sanitization, disinfection and cleanliness." As predicted in one of our previous articles about this current crisis, "every guest entering Shanghai Disney Resort will be required to undergo temperature screening procedures."
Guests at Shanghai Disneyland will also be required to wear a mask during their entire visit (except when dining), and are expected to maintain social distances at all times - especially in stores, queues and restaurants. Disney World and Disneyland may not employ all of these measures, but you can bet they'll have at least some of these in place when parks reopen.
How Will My Annual Pass Be Affected?
Disney has promised to extend Annual Passes through the park closure. Good news for those of us who have paid upwards of $1000 for access to the most magical place on earth. Florida residents who pay monthly for access to the parks enjoy no such benefit or exceptions.
What Measures Will Disney Take To Ensure Cleanliness and Sanitation of Parks and Resorts?
Disney is ramping up training for Cast Members and reinforcing new sanitation measures on a regular basis. They're also defining cycles for more frequent cleaning and disinfection of targeted areas. Handwashing and sanitizing facilities are being added around the resort. After the parks close for the night, more stringent sanitation procedures will be enacted for all guest areas and behind the scenes Cast Member spaces. Disney will also employ more frequent cleaning and "wash down" of outdoor locations of walkways and queues.
