PHOTOS: Plexiglass Dividers Added to Pirates of the Caribbean Queue at the Magic Kingdom

Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom has been getting a lot of love lately, with a new attraction sail debuting a few days ago. Today, it seems that the queue received some new additions to help with distancing.


New plexiglass and metal dividers have been added to only a portion of the Pirates queue. The dividers are connected to the stanchions that usually hold the chains that make up the queue lines.


These new additions will create a division between guests as they pass each other in this small corridor once inside.


The dividers have a metal lower half and plexiglass above encased in a metal frame. The dividers accompany the social distancing markers that show guests where to stand as they wait in line. These additions added several more spots for guests to stand in this area, as the center lane had nearly no markers at all.


There have been other safety measures recently added at Walt Disney World, such as the plastic dividers added to the Disney World Monorails. They also have dividers on other attractions, such as the “it’s a small world” boats. These increased safety measures will most likely continue to pop up as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Stay tuned to WDWNT for the latest news regarding COVID-19 safety precautions at the Walt Disney World Resort.

So who cleans all this plexiglass and how often? Studies show more air filtration and circulation helps take the micro droplets with virus out of the air. It seems to me all this plexiglass just keeps any microdroplets in the air longer, plus providing another surface for other unseen germs and visible dirt to collect. (And forget about it if you have any amount of claustrophobia!) wouldn’t more fans and air filtration be a better choice?
