Magic Kingdom’s Return to Normal – Distancing Markers Removed Entirely from Most Attractions

Physical distancing markers continue to be removed from Walt Disney World queues. Numerous attractions at the Magic Kingdom have now removed the markers, both outdoors and in. Markers have been removed at Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, “it’s a small world,” Peter Pan’s Flight, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Let’s take a look at the changes.

Jungle Cruise

Guests fill the queue. Those wishing to maintain physical distancing will need to do so without the aid of markers.

I wouldn’t mind them getting rid of the plexiglass, but would like them to leave the bit of a wall that’s under the glass . It’s low enough that air circulates but better than just a rail or rope so it keeps people from leaning into you or getting bumped by backpacks, or kids swinging on them.

The fact that Disney is making changes to the mask policy does concern me a lil because so many of their guest are not old enough to take the vaccine, if they choose too. However, everyone has to decide whats best for them. M

I hope the plexiglass goes away for good. I also hope Haunted Mansion’s stretching room returns. As well as Tower of Terror’s preshow.
