Shanghai Disneyland Reportedly Testing New Theater Seating Guidelines for Social Distancing
Stateside, we’re looking at everything from financial projections to medical models for hints at potential reopening dates for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland resort, but with regards to actual protocol once the parks and resorts do open, we look to Shanghai Disney Resort. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, Shanghai Disney Resort has been closed since late January. However, the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, Disneytown, and Wishing Star Park resumed limited operations on March 9, with health protocols in place to keep guests safe and prevent the further spread of the virus.
According to Twitter user @gourmetdyy, within indoor theaters, Cast Members and their guests will be seated at every other row, with each party separated by a few seats in order to maintain their distance.
