PHOTOS: Distancing Markers Removed From Interior Mexico Pavilion Queue at EPCOT

When physical distancing was implemented at Walt Disney World, the Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT faced a particular challenge being almost entirely indoors. A queue with physical distancing was utilized for entering the temple building. Distancing markers were recently removed from the exterior portion of this queue, and have now been removed from the interior.


The queue takes up most of the entryway of the temple, which houses a Coco exhibit.


The stanchions of the queue have also been moved to create more of a switchback pattern, which puts guests closer to each other.


That does mean that the queue can fit more people inside the air conditioned building.


Face masks are still required indoors throughout Walt Disney World.

Doesn’t this beg the obvious question… if there are no more distancing restrictions in the queue, why is there a queue at all? I don’t recall a queue to enter the pavilion in pre-covid days?

Great point! It’s all about optics. Showing that they are doing something. But holds little to no real value, impact nor meaning. And just degrades the Guest experience.
