PHOTOS: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Now Loading Every Row at Magic Kingdom

With Walt Disney World getting ready for spring break crowds, two popular Magic Kingdom attractions have resumed loading every row.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has begun fully loading their vehicles. Previously, rows had been skipped to promote physical distancing between parties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Plexiglass dividers have been added to the loading gates to reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 while guests wait.

Guests are still required to wear face coverings while on the ride.

Over in Fantasyland, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is also completely filling trains.

These two are just the latest rides to adopt the practice. Yesterday, we reported that The Barnstormer had also begun to load all rows, adding plexiglass dividers in the loading area to limit face-to-face contact between guests. Previously, “it’s a small world” had tested the transparent dividers between rows on boats, while Pirates of the Caribbean placed plexiglass dividers in the queue. Given the high speeds of the roller coasters, it’s unlikely that dividers will be added to either train.

I guess capacity is more important than health and safety.

I’m sure the good people of the lone star and hawkeye states are thrilled.

Don’t worry, the stupid plexiglass dividers before you get on the train magically protect you (it’s a magical place after all). Just like “social distancing” before you sit elbow-to-elbow on a plane does.
If you don’t want to be near people, then don’t go to a theme park.

Great now get rid of the worthless plexiglass everywhere. Get rid of masks. Open up everything to full capacity and we will be good to go. No need to hide from life. If your scared hide in your house.

It won’t be long until Disney lawyers get paranoid and mandate that Park Ops put up the awful plexiglass on the rides. Just more magic to take away and ruin the Guest experience.
