Tips For Keeping Your Family Safe and Healthy on Future Visits to Disney World

COVID-19 is, unfortunately, here to stay for now. Despite the fact that it’s the most magical place on earth, this is just as true in Disney World as it is anywhere else. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help ensure your family stays happy and healthy when visiting the “Mouse House”. By implementing the tips below, you can rest easy knowing you’re doing everything you can to keep COVID-19 and all other illnesses at bay while you enjoy your magical vacation. 

1. Wash Your Hands

This instruction we hear over and over again is repeated for good reason. The very best way to avoid catching any sort of illness is by washing your hands as often as possible. Disney has hand washing stations in place and bathrooms around every corner. Use those sinks! Wash your hands well every time you get a chance.

2. Stock Up on Sanitizer

Of course, there will be times when a full handwashing isn’t feasible. Be sure to stock up on sanitizer before your trip to use during these times, and sanitize often. Sanitizing gel is great, but many find they like to have sanitizing wipes for cleaning tabletops and other surfaces. We recommend having a combination of both in order to be prepared for any situation.

3. Don’t Touch Your Face

Another bit of advice we’re probably all tired of hearing is “don’t touch your face.” However, this advice also has reason for being repeated often. After all, even if germs do manage to hang out on your hands between washings, they can’t do much harm to you if they can’t make it onto your face. Therefore, it stands to reason that you’ll want to avoid touching your face during your time at Disney. There are some ways to make this a bit easier to remember. They include the following:

  • Pulling your hair back to remove the need to brush bits of hair out of your face.
  • Carrying sticks of chapstick rather than the kind that is applied by hand.
  • Skipping makeup that runs in the heat. 
  • Making a habit of only applying sunscreen after washing hands.
  • Keeping your hands in your pockets when possible.
  • Wearing a mask as required at Disney.
