On Wednesday, Walt Disney World released an official statement on new safety protocols that will be implemented at WDW hotels and Vacation Club resorts when they reopen and it appears to be a pretty proactive regimen of new cleaning and safety protocols.
Katie Kelly, Vice President of Worldwide Safety Services, broke down the new guidelines on Disney's website, and a Disney resort vacation is going to look quite a bit different than it did in February.
New measures include: online check-in, distanced luggage services, continuous cleaning of high-touch public areas and surfaces (elevators, restrooms, handrails, benches, tables), more hand-sanitizing stations, new physical distancing rules in public areas (lobbies, restaurants, pools, fitness centers), more emphasis on cashless and mobile-ordering options, enhanced room cleaning practices, and new housecleaning policies.They've even returned to the lost art of the educational video!
