Disney Springs will reopen to the public on May 20 and the company is gearing up with safety protocols and social distancing measures to ensure the public and Cast Members remain safe and healthy.

One of the things Disney is implementing is a brand new social distancing team of Cast Members. This team will be used to engage with guests as well as make sure that social distancing guidelines are followed in queues and in popular areas of Disney Springs.

How will physical distancing guidelines be enforced?

Managing density within Disney Springs has been a major consideration as we implement physical distancing guidelines based on recommendations from health authorities and government officials. One of the ways to do that is to limit the number of Guests in any given time for each location. One-way and other directional signage has been installed to assist Guests to responsibly move throughout the property. Additionally, ground markings have also been installed to allow for proper physical distancing when queuing is needed at a location. We are also adding a new team to engage with Guests and promote physical distancing guidelines in common areas and queues.
