On March 9, we reported that the first case of coronavirus in a Disneyland Paris Cast Member was confirmed. The confirmed case was from a maintenance worker at Disneyland Paris who had tested positive for coronavirus. Despite this confirmed case, Disneyland Paris kept its doors open to guests and increased hand gel provided to the guests visiting the theme park.

Disney has also been informing the guests visiting the theme park to keep their distance while waiting in the queue for rides.

“We have been notified that a cast member who works backstage and does not have contact with guests has tested positive and is receiving treatment”, a Disney spokesperson stated. “We have been in regular contact with the local health authorities and continue to implement preventive measures in line with their recommendations to help protect our guests and cast members.”

As we have previously stated and reported, Disneyland Paris immediately took measures to ensure guests’ safety — including constant cleaning and disinfecting areas, water fountains and making sure that hand sanitizer is available to guests throughout the theme park.

And now it looks as though the Disney Park is making even more changes and taking more precautious as they continue to make changes to their theme park in order to keep both Cast Members and guests safe.

According to leparisien, Disneyland Paris is now increasing turnover of cutlery in the restaurants, has eliminated the “single rider” queues, in addition to previously made changes to the Disney Character meet and greets.

Increased Turnover of Cutlery in Restaurants

It is now being reported that Disneyland Paris is increasing the rotation of cutlery or disposable cutlery at buffets for restaurants. The theme park is also placing disposable cutlery in the hotels.

Stopping the “Single Rider” Queues

Disneyland Paris has also stopped the “single rider” queues. This helps make it more possible for attraction vehicles to not be so packed or full — making it fresh of clean air and air conditioning while riding the attraction.
