Disneyland Prepares for Re-Opening With Over 23,000 New Safety Measures
The re-opening guidelines outlined by the state of California may have been strict, but Disneyland is preparing. Disneyland Resort Senior Vice President, Mary Niven, announced this week that the parks are planning on installing tens of thousands of Coronavirus safety measures before the re-opening.
These measures include hand-washing stations, plexi-glass barriers, and warning signs in Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure as well as the Disneyland resorts on property. These measures will be in place well before the re-opening.

Precautions are already in place at Downtown Disney with the requirement of masks, temperature checks and social distancing requirements. The precautions will be coupled with the protective barriers, warning signs and hand sanitation stations the parks will add.
According to the Orange County Register article, Niven explains the lengths Disneyland has gone to in order to maintain safety. “We have done a lot of work with our industrial engineers to assess every attraction and every attraction vehicle to really make sure that we can ensure that we maintain a minimum of six foot distance between parties at all times.”
These same safety measures are also being taken in order to protect employees as well as guests. Walt Disney World in Florida has implemented similar measures and recently have installed additional plexi-glass barriers on some rides and queues. Mobile ordering, contactless payment options and virtual queues are being utilized by both parks as even more precautionary measures.
“By the time we reopen, we’ll have over 20,000 COVID-19 related signs and markings and have installed over 2,000 plexiglas physical barriers in both our guest and cast areas,” Niven said.
Disneyland will be ready.
