PHOTOS: Monorail Dividers Removed as Walt Disney World Begins its First Day Without Mask Requirement

As we boarded the monorail at the Transportation and Ticket Center this morning to head to the Magic Kingdom, we found the dividers in the monorail have been removed. This change comes as Walt Disney World will no longer require vaccinated guests to wear masks in most places in the parks.

Both the vinyl barriers between sections and the plastic dividers that created sections within the cabins are now gone. The vinyl barriers were added last summer prior to the parks reopening, while the plastic dividers were added early this year.

There’s no evidence that the people going to Disney World are disproportionately folks who are fully vaccinated, which is a large but still minority of our population. I guess I can’t say I’m surprised they are taking these down but that’s got us down to just wearing masks while on the monorail to protect spread to unvaccinated guests like kids under 12 or those who medically cannot take the vaccine for protection. I don’t know. It really depends on whether fully vaccinated people are a disproportionate share of the population of park goers. But more importantly, why is the EPCOT… Read more »

I will miss some of the procedures. I am not looking forward to crowds of strangers breathing down my neck and pushing up against me. I kinda liked the keep your distance part of it.

Yes!!! Bring back the magic! No more masks or social distancing. We want to hug the characters again and see all the happy faces. The ambiance has always been one of my favorite reasons to visit the parks.

I am no expert but if the vinyl dividers help cut down on germs and they seemed to cut down on noise between areas when i visited which i am all for, i didnt see any reason to remove them.. they could be better on the eyes with a disney’d up look.. The point being, some updates form the pandmeic are actually better than before. we cna learn from this.

Theyre removing the barriers yet still requiring you to wear mask on Disney transportation including the monorail. How hypocritical can you get lol

I think they should have left some of the dividers up, as the children under 12 are not afforded the opportunity to receive the vaccine yet. As adults we must take all steps necessary to protect our most vulnerable.
