Another Disney Attraction Returns to Pre-COVID Experience

Things are changing Disney fans! In just this past week, we’ve seen an increase of pre-COVID experiences returning to Walt Disney World. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway pre-show is back, Haunted Mansion’s Stretching Room has returned, and Living with the Land’s boat dividers have been removed. Another attraction is joining the list of returning to a pre-COVID experience!

Kilimanjaro Safaris July 2020

One of the most popular attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Kilimanjaro Safaris, has removed the large plastic dividers between each of their seats on the safari vehicles. As you can see in the photo above, with the dividers in place, it was difficult to see what was up ahead leaving guests sticking with the view to their immediate left or right.

Now, the vehicles are once again free from the dividers with views galore! Brooke Geiger McDonald took to Twitter to share: “Getting back on Kilimanjaro Safaris with the dividers removed after being used to them feels like riding it for the first time. Game changer.”

We’re loving watching the return of all these experiences! We’ll keep you posted as Disney continues to return more and more attractions and experiences to their pre-COVID state.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
