PHOTOS: Temperature Screenings Begin at Resort Table-Service Restaurants in Walt Disney World

As we reported earlier this week, temperature checks are now being implemented at resort table-service restaurants at Walt Disney World. We visited Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to see how they are incorporating the temperature checks.

A new sign declares the temperature screening requirement.

All of Walt Disney World Resort was already requiring physical distancing and face masks, even in restaurants. Most restaurants have certain tables marked unavailable to create social distancing, and some have social distancing markers leading into the restaurant where guests line up.

Unlike at the parks, the temperature check is done by a Disney Cast Member, not an AdventHealth worker. The Cast Member is wearing a face shield.

Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher will be directed to an additional temperature screening. If they still have a temperature of 100.4 F or higher, they and their party will not be allowed in the restaurant.

We then visited Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, where the temperature screenings have also been implemented.

They have the same sign informing guests of the temperature screening.

The new policy can be referenced under the Health & Hygiene section of Disney’s “Dining: Know Before You Go” page.
