As we’ve seen on the various attractions where they’ve been installed, these dividers are meant to increase capacity and reduce wait times for guests. When loading, we noticed double the amount of numbered queue markers in the loading area.
Cabins are divided into four sections, each capable of sitting about two adults. We were seated with two other parties in the cabin, a party of two and a party of four. The party of two took up one cubicle, and the party of four took up two cubicles.
The sections are made of a hard plastic material retrofitted to the existing handrails and seats using numerous zip ties.
Here’s what it looked like from within our section.
While the dividers are a visually drastic change, we appreciate that the font used for the numbered section stickers matches the signage elsewhere inside the monorail.
For now, we’ve only noticed these dividers on the Express monorail line, with Monorail Green and Monorail Black each halfway outfitted with these new socially-distanced sections. What do you think of these additions to Walt Disney World’s highway in the sky? Let us know in the comments!
