    Is there a way to find out what social distancing measures are being taken on each ride? For example, if there are partitions or if they are boarding every other row.

    Hi Aimee,

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for bringing another great question to us!

    Given the ever-changing conditions in the theme parks, we do not have an all-encompassing list of the social distancing measures at each attraction. There are some general guidelines that you may find helpful with theme park updates. We just visited in December and prior to our visit, I scoured YouTube for up-to-date footage of attractions. I just typed in attraction names and filtered for the most recent videos. While this is not a perfect strategy by any means I was able to see some of our favorite attractions to get a sense of how the ride queues had changed and how folks maintained social distance. 

    Looking at some of our PhotoPass attraction photos, seating was pretty full on Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Slinky Dog Dash, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. We had some spacing on Pirates of the Caribbean, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™, DINOSAUR, Splash Mountain, Test Track, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. There were partitions on Frozen Ever After and Kilimanjaro Safaris. On Soarin' Around the World, our family was seated on one side of the row, there was a blocked off seat in the middle and another family/group was seated on the other side of the row. The ride queues were marked clearly for social distancing. Hand sanitizer was readily available throughout the parks, resorts, and transportation pick-up areas. 

    As we have followed the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort, my family has been impressed with the Disney Parks Commitment to Health & Safety Measures. During our trip, we were also cautious at dining locations. Disney's Grand Floridan Cafe, Kona Cafe, and California Grill were our favorites for social distancing. We also enjoyed dining on the outside patio area at Rose & Crown Dining Room

    Aimee, I hope this helps some even though it is not an exhaustive list. I see that your trip is approaching soon. Make sure you check the operational updates as procedures could change prior to your visit. Above all else, I want to assure you that fun is still to be had. My family had a blast. And we cannot wait to welcome you back for your next Incredible Disney Day!

    Magic and memories,
