5 Walt Disney World Park Fixes Needed During COVID-19

5 Walt Disney World Park Fixes Needed During COVID-19

Over the last couple of weeks we have showcased comprehensive efforts Disney has made to create a more COVID-19 free experience in the parks. We noted in one post/podcast over 65 examples just canvassing Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The following are ideas for improving the park experience–not necessarily to make it safe–but to make the experience better despite the safety practices Disney has had to implement. I think it would do much to make a more enjoyable experience for all attending.

You can find our podcast here on PodbeaniTunesSpotifyMyTuner, and ListenNotes. Key notes and photos are below, but you’ll find most of my commentary on the podcast.

1. Open Passholder Availability

Calendar for Disney Resort Guests. It is also currently green at Theme Park Tickets Guests.
Calendar for same month for Annual Passholders.
  • There is availability almost every day for Disney resort guests and guests buying tickets. But there are many days pass holders are blocked out in part of completely.
  • There should never be a day in which park guests should not be able to get into at least one park.
  • Why can’t there be a 2:00 raffle to allow passholders to have an extra “after 4:00” entry. Perhaps for those with dining reservations?

2. More Fever Tent Checking Available

  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios has big back up problems getting the fever checked.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom has already been testing out technology that should be used not only for security purposes but for checking fever.

3. More Rest & Covered Areas

  • Some parks have no indoor rest areas
  • Some parks have two few rest areas & tables/chairs
  • Rest areas need to have tables cleaned afterwards

  • Flexibility on entering and exiting when crowds are low
  • Product with pricing on it
