There are some changes at Walt Disney World Resort in this new normal that you should consider to prevent your next visit from being a disaster.
What parks have you opened?
The first thing to know is that Walt Disney World Resort has 6 theme parks: Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios focused on the Disney world of film and television.
Epcot has a special influence on science and culture; Animal Kingdom is practically a safari.
And Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are its two water parks, which, by the way, are both closed by the pandemic. According to Walt Disney World Resort information, the two parks are planned to open their doors until March 7, 2021, you read well.
Hygiene and health protocols
Rigorous cleaning procedures have been implemented throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Also, room cleaning services have been modified at Disney resort hotels to include rigorous cleaning and reduced contact.
Signs and signs on the ground were installed throughout Walt Disney World Resort to help visitors navigate the common areas, respecting physical estating.
Also, physical barriers were added at the Visitor Information Center to maintain an adequate distance between people. Another important fact is that, in parking lots, they ask drivers to park, leaving a space between cars, so the capacity is reduced.
Reservations to enter
To enter one of the theme parks, you must make a reservation through the Disney Park Pass reservation system.
To enter a park, all visitors over the age of 3 must have a reservation and a valid ticket for the same park on the same date.
At this time, visitors can select one park per day, as visits to more than one park per day are temporarily suspended by the pandemic.
Starting January 1, 2021, visitors who have purchased an annual park hopper ticket or pass will be able to visit more than one park per day after 2 pm.
If you have a ticket for several days, you will have to make a reservation for each park individually.
It is recommended that you make your reservations for the parks as soon as you complete your ticket purchase, as the availability of reservations is constantly changing.
How to make a reservation?
Making a reservation is very easy. You must first purchase your tickets. It is recommended that before purchasing them, be sure to check online the availability of theme park reservations, as reservations are subject to a quantity limit and availability.
You will then need to confirm that your ticket is linked to your Disney account. Now you’ll need to create a group with your family and friends and choose the date and theme park they want to visit on the available dates.
Use of the water cover in parks
All visitors (over 2 years old) must wear masks. It is only allowed to remove the cover at the time of lunch and in the pools.
It is important to clarify that all mouth covers (disposable or reusable) must be made of at least two breathable material layers and completely cover the nose and mouth.
The water cover must be kept fixed with strips or fasteners and allow hands to be free.
Currently, neck coverts, open chin triangle bandanas, and masks with valves, net materials, or hollows of any kind will not be accepted as mouth covers. Costume masks are also not considered cover covers, so their use is prohibited.
To reduce contact, Disney invites visitors to use payment options that do not require cash, including debit cards, credit cards, and Disney Gift Cards.
Another payment option that does not require contact is the mobile payment service. Disney resort hotel guests can also use their MagicBands to upload their purchases to their account.
