Disney World has always been a beacon of meticulous design, but over the past year, the company has invested extra time and effort into efficiency and safety, which has manifested throughout the property in a multitude of ways.
The most obvious examples of this can be seen on rides and in ride queues, via plexiglass and socially distanced floor markers, the latter of which just came in clutch by alleviating crowds in the boarding area at Animal Kingdom’s Kilimanjaro Safaris!
Even in a non-pandemic environment, floor markers are helpful for minimizing confusion in Disney World. They make it super clear where guests should be standing, and Cast Members can streamline boarding by simply saying a number or holding up a certain amount of fingers.
It’s really just an added bonus that they keep guests safely distanced!
The latest Disney World attraction to hop aboard the floor marker bandwagon is Kilimanjaro Safaris. The ride had long since adapted with plexiglass dividers, but seemed like it could use some more organization in the loading area.
Previously guests had to try to listen and follow Cast Members in a loud, crowded environment. Now, there are numbered floor markers that clearly denote where to stand!
In true Disney style, the markers are intricately designed to blend in with the atmosphere of Kilimanjaro Safaris, so they’re a nice addition from a purely aesthetic point, too!
Personally, we’re just happy to be able to board Kilimanjaro Safaris more easily, because that means more ride opportunities and more animal sightings!
