Physical distancing removal is currently in full swing at Disney World with markers being removed from many places. You may be delighted to hear this newest place no longer has distancing because of how hard it has been to get in!

Physical distancing

While we may not be hearing “please fill in all available space” any time soon, Disney World is certainly not discouraging it. Ever since a study revealed that 6 feet of physical distance can be reduced down to 3 feet, Disney has been acting on its gradual, phased approach to removing markers.

Not only that, but they have also begun loading more Guests per ride vehicle in an effort to increase capacity.

We first began to see it on many of the popular attractions like Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain. Now it seems like distancing has been removed on more rides than not.

Disney also increased capacity on the Skyliner and removed markers from the ferryboats and monorail.

Following that, came the removal of signs on outdoor dining tables. Merchandise and dining locations also no longer have physical distancing markers in place, which you can read about HERE.

All of these changes allow Disney to squeeze in more Guests as we enter the busy summer months.

Pyramid at night

The Mexico Pavilion Pyramid is one of the hardest areas of the park to get into because of the queue. To aid in physical distancing, Cast Members were only allowing a certain number of Guests in the Pyramid at one time.

This created longer lines to even access it to browse at the merchandise, grab a bit to eat, or ride Gran Fiesta Tour to see the 3 Caballeros back in action.

Long lines are pretty consistent to enter the Pyramid at Epcot.

Now, physical distancing markers are being removed in the Pyramid allowing more Guests to go inside. I believe this also means Cast Members will not be outside restricting access.
