PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 5/29/21 (Entrance Distancing Markers Removed, All Rows Now Being Filled at Shows, Polynesian Porte-Cochère, and More)

Hello and welcome from a bright and beautiful day at Walt Disney World! The sun is out and so are we. We started off our day at Magic Kingdom, where we found lots of updated physical distancing measures, and a few other surprises along the way. Let’s jump right in!


The first thing we noticed when entering the park was the lack of physical distancing markers outside of the entrance. According to a cast member, they had been pulled up just a couple of hours earlier. This change comes only a few days after distancing markers were removed at the Transportation and Ticket Center.


Once in the park, we hopped on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover to get a better look at the ongoing construction for TRON Lightcycle / Run.


We decided to pop over and check up on our favorite “Carousel Family” at Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. There, we found that the attraction is now seating every row and no longer using the numbered dots outside of the theater to maintain physical distancing. Similar practices have also been put into place at other theaters inside of Magic Kingdom. Those include Country Bear Jamboree, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, & Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.


Certain attractions have started to partially remove physical distancing markers in their queues as well, such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. However some still remain in place.


In Fantasyland we saw that Gaston’s Fountain located outside of Gaston’s Tavern is still running dry.


Disney is already gearing up for Father’s Day at various merchandise locations around the parks. Though we haven’t seen any new merchandise for the holiday specifically, there are plenty of new displays to show off some items that dad might just enjoy.


On our way out of Magic Kingdom we stopped to say hello to some familiar faces such as Panchito and Moana during A Goofy Cavalcade & Magic Kingdom Cavalcade.


We wrapped up our day by heading over to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. While we were there, we got some great new shots of the very colorful Porte-Cochère and construction on the new Monorail Station.


We had a magical day inside of Walt Disney World, and we hope you had just as great of a time hearing about it! How do you feel about distancing continuing to be removed inside of the parks? Let us know in the comments. Have a great day, and we’ll “See Ya Real Soon!”
