Disneyland Resort appears to be one step closer to a reopening announcement as Cast Members have placed health and safety signage outside of both the Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure entrances.
Let’s take a look at the new signage!
Instagram user @dev_is_the_dis shared images of the new Disneyland signage with Inside the Magic. As you can see from the above photo, the signs outside of Disneyland Park remind Guests of the mandatory face mask policy, social distancing requirements, hand-washing protocols, and other important health and safety measures.
Here, the signs are visible lined-up outside of the Disney California Adventure theme park entrance, where plexiglass barriers were installed several weeks ago ahead of reopening.
It is important to note that, while this an exciting step in Disneyland’s reopening prep, identical signs have been posted throughout the Downtown Disney District since it began its phased reopening process.
Since Downtown Disney Guests like to gather in the esplanade area at Disneyland, it is possible that these signs are simply meant to serve as additional reminders of The Walt Disney Company’s overarching health and safety procedures.
The sign installation is recent, as the Disneyland entrance looked like this [below photo] when an ITM team member visited Downtown Disney recently.
Currently, the Disneyland Resort website features the following health and safety update:
We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, which is why our reopening approach is deliberately fluid and phased, and there are many factors that are helping us determine the timing of when various aspects of our business will reopen in a responsible way. In addition to following existing state and local guidelines, which continue to evolve, we currently are working with our unions to responsibly and thoughtfully implement new health and safety measures for Cast Members. These enhanced health and safety measures include:
Enhanced Protective Measures: We will require mandatory face coverings for both Cast Members and Guests, ages 2 and older, with the addition of hand-washing stations and physical barriers, where appropriate.
Physical Distancing: We will reduce theme park capacity to enable physical distancing and add appropriate signs to help Guests move responsibly throughout the property.
Temperature Checks: All Guests will undergo temperature screenings prior to entering the Downtown Disney District or the theme parks; in addition, health screenings and temperature checks will be required daily for Cast Members.
Limited-Contact Enhancements: We are recommending cashless transactions and we will reduce Cast Member and Guest interactions with helpful technology, including the expansion of Mobile Order in our Disneyland app, Apple Pay and more.
Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitation: We will build upon our existing standards of cleaning with heightened protocols.
Are you excited to return to the magic of Disneyland Resort, even though the Disney experience may have changed since your last visit? Do you think these health and safety signs are step toward reopening or not?
