PHOTOS: “It’s Tough to be a Bug!” Reopens With Hand Sanitizing Stations and Social Distancing at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Welcome back to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! If you’re seeking a place to cool off for a bit, (with your mask on) you might be interested in visiting the Tree of Life Theater to see “It’s Tough to be a Bug!”.

As with most attractions we’ve seen, social distancing markers are in place throughout the queue.

Right when you enter, there’s a hand sanitizing station for guests before they make their way down the winding queue to the theater.

Various social distancing markers are placed six feet apart in the queue line, though the line for this attraction is rarely found this far outside of the theater on most days.

As you go further along in the queue, you can start to see the animals sculpted into the Tree of Life. With the low crowds right now, it’s the perfect chance to get a few photos with them in the queue.

Before you enter the waiting area of the theater, there are more hand sanitizer stations, as well as a Cast Member to ensure guests are following protocols.

Parties are asked to stay at four people per group. If your party is larger, you will have to split up for how the theater is accommodating social distancing procedures at the moment.

While you wait for the next show, parties can wait on the circles placed in the lobby.

Once you enter the theater, you’ll find certain rows closed off to help keep the distance of parties.

There are also markers placed on certain benches, blocking off three seats, to keep parties separated as well.

Though not there during the initial reopening, Plexiglass dividers were later added between sets of seats.

Will you be heading to see this 4-D show the next time you’re at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Keep following WDWNT for continuing coverage of the reopening of the theme parks!
