PHOTOS: The Emporium Reopens at the Magic Kingdom with Face Masks, Social Distancing Markers, and Virtual Queues

We are so delighted to be strolling down Main Street, USA once again. There’s nothing like the smell of fresh popcorn with incredible views of Cinderella Castle. Next up on our journey around Magic Kingdom during cast member previews, we head to the Emporium shop to see what health and safety measures have been established in the wake of COVID-19.

More signs indicate which exit to use to better control crowd flow. You’ll find that in most locations, there is now a dedicated entrance and exit point.

Similar to the system in place at Disney Springs, signs in the store suggest that if crowd levels get too high, you can join a virtual queue to return at a later time.

Kayla I am about 400 miles away & I do not know when I will be down, how can I contact the Emporium at MK (yes I am a former Castmember & sometime in the future will be again) I would like to order the Walt Disney Studios Hat. Shop Disney does not have it.
