Walt Disney World is now implementing temperature screenings to more locations throughout property. Initially, the temperature checks were found at locations including entry to the theme parks and to the Disney Springs area.
However, now Disney has just updated their website to include temperature check screenings to table service restaurants at Disney Resort hotels.
Temperature checks are among the required health and safety protocol for all Guests and Cast Members.
The Walt Disney World Resort website now reads:
Temperature screenings are required for entry to some locations.
You will be required to undergo a temperature screening with no-touch thermometers before entry to some locations at Walt Disney World Resort, including the Walt Disney World theme parks, the Disney Springs area and table-service restaurants at Disney Resort hotels.
Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be directed to an additional location for rescreening and assistance. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
Before you leave home, be sure to check the temperatures of everyone in your party—including yourself—as an extra layer of precaution.

More on Walt Disney World Reopening
If you plan on visiting Walt Disney World Resort, there have been safety protocols and several other changes put into place to keep guests and cast members safe. Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopened on July 11 and EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopened on July 15. All four theme parks have temperature screenings in place for Guests prior to entering the theme park. Disney Springs also has temperature screenings set up prior to entry being allowed.
Social distancing measures have been put in place, excessive cleanliness, encouragement of mobile orders, plexiglass, and as we previously mentioned, the elimination of character meet and greets. Also being eliminated from the parks are parades and fireworks along with other similar entertainment that draws a crowd, and much more.
Guests will also need a park pass reservation in order to visit one of the theme parks, which you can read more about here.
