Will you be visiting Disney Springs upon it's reopening next week?

Face Masks, Plexiglass Dividers, and Temperature Checks Confirmed for Disney Springs Reopening on May 20

The Hollywood Reporter recently interviewed Eric Clinton, President of the UNITE HERE Local 362 union, which represents service workers across Walt Disney World Resort. In the interview, additional details on health and safety precautions for the reopening of Disney Springs on May 20 were released, as well as new information regarding the reopening of World of Disney and other Disney-owned locations across Disney Springs.

Additional precautions will be in place for the May 20 reopening, such as the requirement of face masks for both guests and employees. Disney will provide Cast Members with three washable masks. Guests will have their temperature checked upon entry.

Throughout the complex, plexiglass dividers have been installed at registers. Guests will swipe their own payments cards, as they will no longer be handled by employees. Custodians will be retrained to focus on cleaning high-traffic, high-touch areas.

Disney has developed new global training guidelines for park employees amid the pandemic. The company will also hold monthly safety meetings, with which the union will be involved.

I am so happy about the temperature checks and mask requirements. For all the people ranting and raving about it, most people will not take a fever reducer and even if the temperature checks eliminate a handful of people that could potentially infect others, it will be successful. I highly commend Disney for being strict, bold, and unwavering about masks. They are critical and extremely effective. Simply look at the data from areas requiring them. No, getting your temperature checked is not against your rights. Neither is requiring you to wear a mask. If you’ve never stomped your feet and… Read more »

Screening and restrictions for those entering private property like Disney are lawful given its private property. However, it is ever more distressing to see how quickly people are to cede such rights to like government draconian measures, which are unconstitutional without any legal basis short of the president declaring martial law. The guise of “public health” cannot be a mantra that people give the political elite to assert yet even more illegal control over our lives. This country was founded on individualism and self-determination and is not supposed to be a police state. If society is not careful further growth… Read more »

If you feel the need to wear a hazmat suit one should probably not seek out Disney as your next vacation destination during the summer. At least for the time being. If you are afraid of someone not donning a mask then you probably should stay home. Mean mugging and derogatory comments spoken under your breath is not necessary or even out loud or via the internet. I hardly see a toddler or even a school aged child having the self discipline on not touching their face mask especially speaking during the hot and humid summer months. I am not… Read more »

And this is America’s problem. Y’all focus too much on individualism when at times like these we need to be thinking about EVERYONE. Stop being selfish.

Being concerned about lawfulness and civil liberties is not selfish. It is a public service and you are grossly mischaracterizing people’s reservations to draconian government edicts. Sounds like most of the people on this forum would be happier in a communist country under an authoritarian regime. If you do not believe in the rule of law, perhaps you should relocate.

The protocols are being made public for a reason. They are informing us what DW plans to do.

If those guidelines are unacceptable to anyone, then reconsider making the trip at this time.
