PHOTOS: Extended Queue Markers Removed from Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom

Since Walt Disney World reopened last summer, many attractions have had queues trailing out onto sidewalks due to physical distancing. Now that physical distancing is being reduced, Splash Mountain is seating more guests on one log of the ride. This means lines will (hopefully) be slightly shorter and move faster, so markers for the extended queue have been removed from Frontierland sidewalks.


The queue this morning still crossed over the bridge in front of the drop and looped across it multiple times.


Without queue markers, guests are free to stand within six feet of each other.


Though masks are no longer required outdoors, they are technically required in attraction queues. Still, we saw plenty of guests in this outdoor queue without masks.


Queue markers begin beyond the Splash Mountain entrance sign in the queue proper.


How do you feel about Walt Disney World’s changes to physical distancing and mask guidelines? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I love that they are getting rid of all the nonsense restrictions. I also love to see people using common sense and not wearing a mask OUTSIDE in line.

  2. So Disney is removing extended queue markers AND people don’t have to wear masks in extended queues? Sure stinks for those of us with 12 and under who can’t be vaccinated. Looks like our June trip just got more stressful.

  3. I like that things are getting “back to normal” but I also LOVE the limited capacity and lower congestion in the parks! Even thinking of Pre Covid capacity amount of people in MK is extremely stressful!!
