PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom & Disney’s Animal Kingdom 6/16/21 (Dinosaur Returns to Pre-Pandemic State, Multiple Parties Being Sat Together on Certain Attractions, Physical Distancing Removed Onboard Monorails)
Jambo! Join us today as we venture around Walt Disney World at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom. We found quite a few interesting things today, and we even saw an attraction return to it’s pre-pandemic state. So let’s jump in!
Once inside the loading area, we found that the plexiglass dividers had been completely removed and that guests are being seated in every row. This includes sitting multiple parties together in the same row, which has not been seen at an attraction before today. Dinosaur is officially back to pre-pandemic procedures.
We found that they are also seating multiple parties together on Kali River Rapids once again. All twelve seats inside the ride vehicle are now being occupied, whereas they were originally only using one raft per party.
Kilimanjaro Safaris may not be back to its full original state, but we did see the removal of some plexiglass dividers inside the loading area, as well as on the ride vehicle itself! Guests are being seated in every row with zero plastic dividers inbetween.
We love to see custodial art around the parks, especially pieces like this Mickey fallen flower display!
Dividers have also been completely removed at Na’vi River Journey in Pandora – The World of Avatar. They no longer remain in the loading area or on the boats themselves.
After the return of Liquid Layer recently, we were hopeful that we would find the Flaska Reclinata or spraying creatures back in action. Unfortunately, they still remain dormant.
Sivako! Inside of Avatar Flight of Passage, we found that little distancing measures remained in place. Guests are now standing on every numbered dot in the second pre-show room ,and being seated next to each other on the ride itself.
That brings us to the end of our day! We hope you enjoyed following us around Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom as much as we enjoyed being there. How do you feel about the parks return to normalcy? Let us know in the comments below! “We’ll see ya real soon!”
