Physical Distancing In Restaurants & Stores Being Reduced at Walt Disney World

As Walt Disney World continues to review CDC and local health official guidelines, they are continuously making updates to their COVID policies. Recently, Disney’s face covering policy was updated to no longer require masks in outdoor theaters. Now, Disney’s physical distancing guidelines have been updated to reflect reducing of physical distancing in restaurants and stores.


Walt Disney World’s previous distancing guidelines stated: “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.”

Now, Disney’s distancing guidelines on the website state: “Adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing for Guests. These measures will be reduced in a gradual, phased approach.”


We’ll keep you posted as Disney continues to review and update COVID guidelines.
