Walt Disney World Reducing Six-Foot Physical in Stores and Restaurants

The “Know Before You Go” page of Walt Disney World’s website has been updated to no longer include any mention of six-foot physical distancing, suggesting distancing will be reduced in stores and restaurants now.

When it was first announced physical distancing would be reduced, the page stated the following:

Temporary adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing. While we will reduce physical distancing measures for Guests across many areas with a gradual, phased approach, six-feet distancing measures will continue in all dining locations, merchandise stores and in areas where Guests can temporarily remove their masks.

It now simply reads:

Adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing for Guests. These measures will be reduced in a gradual, phased approach.

The wording no longer specifies that six feet of distancing is required in certain locations and we have already seen distancing be reduced at some dining locations. That being said, some areas will continue to have physical distancing of six feet as markers are gradually removed and changed.

New “please wait here” physical distancing markers have been added to the Monorail, suggesting distancing of some kind is here to stay for a while longer. Disney has not announced a precise measurement for distancing, though it seems they are generally reducing it to three feet.

  1. WDW just has to have control over people. Poor CM who have to enforce this crap.

      1. Wasn’t meant to be helpful. I believe it was meant to speak for many many people including me.
