PHOTOS, VIDEO: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Reopens With Plexiglass & Physical Distancing at Disneyland Park

The queue is lined with physical distancing markers, helping guide Guests to stay 6 feet apart from other parties.

The plexiglass also creates a barrier between the queue and Guests waiting for the next train to arrive.
