According to Clinton, “All guests and employees will be required to wear masks. Disney will provide employees three washable masks. Guests will have their temperature checked and plexiglass dividers have been installed at registers. Guests will swipe their own payments cards, they will no longer be handled by employees. And custodians will be retrained to pay attention to high-touch areas.”

  1. I have a trip planned for July 4th thru 12th. Staying in the park with 19 people. This is a $20,000 trip that I’m not sure we should make. Face masks will be very uncomfortable in the heat. Aside from the number of cases being reported showing no change before and during quarantine face masks mandates have made no changes in numbers of reported cases. I’m not sure I could make the 5 year olds on this trip keep their masks on. I think I better just cancel this trip and be done with it. I have no issues with taking on the risk of the virus… I’m just as likely to get it at the grocery store as I am Disney. I just don’t think the trip will be fun. I almost wish Disney would just stay closed and take the choice of going away from me

  2. We will not be going either while masks are quired. Also confused about temp checks – what would they consider a fever?

  3. Temp checks are pretty pointless since asymptotic people and those incubating are still contagious and won’t have a fever. And unless they publish what they consider a fever to be, who decides if 99.9 is a fever when it could be the heat, a person’s normal Temp (people do vary and we all vary during the day) or an illness? And while I could see this being added to the already slow park entry process, Disney Springs has multiple points of access and is all shops and eateries. Are they going to check your temp at every single store? Who is taking your temp? A medically trained person or Joe public with an infrared thermometer he/she may or may not be using properly? This all sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen and Disney sounds like a place not to go with all this “for show” stuff they are implementing.

  4. As long as face coverings are required, I won’t be visiting Disney Springs. What a miserable experience that would be!

    1. Imagine wearing one in the parks. Ugh! If FL isn’t requiring all this, Disney shouldn’t be either. I cancelled my July trip.
