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.
