Since Disney World reopened last year, the rides have looked a little different.
Disney has installed distancing markers and plexiglass throughout the lines to ensure that guests were remaining 6 feet apart while waiting. And, when it comes to actually riding the attractions, we’ve seen quite a few different approaches — some have plexiglass barriers between rows, others have distanced parties without barriers, and others have loaded the ride without any space. And, recently we noticed another change to a popular Disney ride.
Today, when we rode Pirates of the Caribbean in Magic Kingdom, we noticed that Disney is now loading three parties into every boat. This leaves about one to two rows between groups.
The boats do not have plexiglass installed between rows, so Disney had previously been seating only two groups (one in the front and one in the back), meaning that there were at least two to three rows between other parties. But, it seems that has changed.
Keep in mind that now, if your party spans more than one row, Cast Members will seat your group back-to-back, but leave one row of space between any other parties in the boat.
