It’s been a pretty exciting week in the world of Disney parks. From the opening of Walt Disney World this weekend to the reopening of Downtown Disney in Anaheim, we are starting to see a small glimmer of hope that we are returning to maybe some kind of normal. Although we are seeing a huge rise in new COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began back in March. We are going to take a look at what has come out of the pass-holder preview this week at WDW and see what some of the changes are.
Social distance parking is something new to the parks. When you park at the parking lot you are instructed to park in every other space. This is done to ensure proper social distancing. Small crowds are a new thing at WDW. When would you ever think in your life that you could see WDW at below 30 percent capacity? Well, nows your chance. With small capacity comes small lines. Small is now also a thing that will become the norm for a while.
Cleanliness has become a staple all around the parks. One of the biggest observations is that the cast members are more diligent then they have ever been before. They are quick to react to a mess and also are continuously cleaning the attractions whenever they have a chance. Another really cool thing that has come out of the changes is the new mini parades. Randomly throughout the day, there will be one float parades going down main street. One of the biggest takeaways is that the Disney magic is still there and in full effect. It may be through glass or at a distance but it is still there.
