When the Walt Disney World Resort reopens to Guests mid-July, things will look a bit different.

With safety and health protocols being put into place — including face masks, social distancing, capacity measures, and more — Walt Disney World will not be the same as it was prior to the global pandemic.

One of the differences Guests will notice is the experiences at merchandise locations throughout the Disney Park. Disney has recently sent out an update including return policies, shopping and delivery protocols, and more.

According to the official Walt Disney World website:

In merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort, Guests will continue to discover favorite Disney items, with some modifications to the shopping experience that will help us manage capacity and foster physical distancing.

New Product Launches: New collection product launches and limited-edition merchandise will not be available for in-person purchases at Walt Disney World Resort until further notice. As always, Guests can find these items on shopDisney, subject to availability.

Delivery Option: Package delivery to the front of our theme parks or to Disney Resort hotels will be suspended. However, shipping merchandise to Guests’ homes continues to be available.

Dressing Rooms: For the time being, dressing rooms will not be available.

Returns: In-person returns will be available upon the reopening of our merchandise locations.
