PHOTOS: Hand-Washing Stations and Sanitation Guidelines Posted Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios In Response To Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As the public is growing hyper-aware of the scope of the Coronavirus, the Disney Parks around the world that remain open are implementing heightened health and safety measures. We previewed the new hand-washing stations that were installed yesterday across Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Today, we have confirmation of temporary hand-washing stations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as well. You can even find the nearest hand-washing or hand sanitizer station, no matter what park you’re in, by searching on the My Disney Experience app.

Some locations across Disney’s Hollywood Studios just had signage in place directing guests to the nearest bathroom. The signage directed guests to check their park maps for restroom locations as well as providing steps in preventing the spread of germs. Where signage was the only thing in place, it seemed like there was a bathroom very close by, such as this sign inside the marketplace of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by Ronto Roaster’s, a quick-service eatery.

The areas that we have noticed a higher concentration of the hand-washing stations have been at food service locations and heavy child-centric lands. Toy Story Land has a station outside of Woody’s Lunch Box, fully stocked with soap and paper towels.

The Disney Junior Meet & Greet area features two, almost side by side, hand-washing stations. Being a high-traffic area, with probably more exposure to cleanliness issues, this will be a welcome sight for parents.

The station outside of Sunset Ranch Market looked like it was being actively used, as excess water can be seen spilling out on the ground.

Though a bit barren this morning, Grand Avenue which features Muppet*Vision 3D, was fully stocked and ready to provide hand washing options for guests.

Where there was a large gap between restrooms or hand-washing stations, we did find some random tables set up with large hand sanitizer pumps.

Even from the time we arrived this morning to when we were leaving this afternoon, the presence in the front of the park for sanitation stations was much improved. When we exited the park, there were both walk-up Purell towers and a couple of tables full of pump hand sanitizer.

As we continue to travel to the parks to provide you all the new Disney parks news, we will no doubt be keeping you up to date on Walt Disney World’s changing landscape around Coronavirus. Keeping our eyes on developments not just here in Florida and in California, but Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong as well, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on Disney Parks operations and beyond.
