PHOTOS: First Look at Social Distancing Measures for Walt Disney World Resort Monorails

Earlier in the week, we were able to catch a ride on a Walt Disney World Resort bus, which began operation with new social distancing measures in place, including specific places for parties to sit and Plexiglas dividers.

After reviewing those procedures, we were curious about what the other transportation methods around the resort would look like, and today we got a look at the monorails!

Parked inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort, we found this monorail with what looks to be a vinyl partition hanging inside the cabin.

Here we get a much closer view at the new covering, which you can see is anchored to the roof of the monorail.

A better shot from the outside of the monorail let’s us see the cabin is practically split into two.

We don’t care what measures need to be taken, we’re just excited to see monorails again and we can’t wait to take a ride! What do you think of this change? Sound off in the comments below.

How are they expected to social distance throughout the park? There will still be huge crowds, are we supposed to take an hour to walk from Big Thunder to Small World? You can’t social distance the queues but disregard the other 75% of each park.
