Temperature Screenings Now Required Before Entering a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Restaurant
Walt Disney World has just expanded temperature screenings to those who are entering a table service restaurant at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Currently, those screenings were only required if you were entering one of the four theme parks as well as Disney Springs.
The official Walt Disney World website has been updated with the following statement under “Health and Hygiene:”
Temperature Screenings: Guests dining in table-service restaurants at Disney Resort hotels will undergo a temperature screening prior to entering the location. As with other locations at Walt Disney World Resort that require temperature screenings before entry, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be directed to an additional rescreening. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
In addition to temperature screenings at table service restaurants in Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, the following protocol were previously put io place to ensure all Cast Members and Guests stay safe and healthy:
- Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting in high traffic areas.
- Reduced contact menus including scannable codes that you can access direct for your mobile device.
- Beverages and other items that were previously self-serve are currently service by Cast Members.
- Buffet restaurants such as Chef Mickey’s have transitioned to being served family style.
- Mobile ordering to save you time and allow less contact with others.
- Mobile check-in for reservations so you no longer need to stop at host stand.
- Cashless payments are encouraged.
While mandatory temperature checks have been in place to enter Disney Springs and each of the four Theme Parks, they have not been required to enter a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.
