Official Statement on Coronavirus

As we have reported, Disney has placed numerous hand sanitizers throughout the park. A Walt Disney World Spokesperson told PEOPLE:

“We know there is new information this week about the Coronavirus in Florida. We have very stringent sanitation procedures in place at walt disney world resort. We are in close contact with health agencies for information and guidance, and at this time, we are continuing to communicate to our cast the importance of preventative measures such as frequent hand washing and rigorous cleaning processes. for guest convenience, we have placed additional hand sanitizers throughout our parks and resorts and will adjust our protocols as the situation warrants.”

I am glad that Disney has released a statement because it acknowledges they understand guests’ concerns over their highly anticipated vacations. I have always found Disney to be a very clean park, and is one of the many reasons I enjoy visiting!

Disney is not alone in releasing a statement to PEOPLE, Universal Studios and Legoland have also stated they are taking preventive measures.

Be sure to continue practicing good hand hygiene in your everyday tasks. Stay healthy crew!

We will continue to keep you updated on Florida’s state of public health emergency and how this affects Disney World. Be sure to follow along on our facebook page and share your thoughts on the situation.

  1. I didn’t see any hand sanitizers yesterday at MK and it would be much more comforting if they had them at the very least at the entrance after the ever so nasty finger scanning to enter the park. I also would have hoped to see more sanitizing done there as well. We dined at two locations and I was frankly shocked at how dirty they were for not being busy and for people supposedly concerned with keeping the park extra clean during this uncertain time.
