Disney World Safety
Many Guests want to enjoy themselves at Disney World. After all, that’s the whole point of visiting! However, Disney World keeps Guest safety a top priority by taking many precautions. In addition to the Covid-related measures that have been implemented for the last year and a half, there are other things Disney does to keep Guests safe.
One of those is a health warning at most attractions in its theme parks. Upon approaching attractions, you will likely see a sign warning you to not ride if experience health issues. These may include back or heart problems or if you suffer from motion sickness. In addition, many expecting women should not ride certain attractions.
