Disney World's trash cans are closed once again

Trash can lids restored at EPCOT
Posted: Friday May 14, 2021 12:28pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

A quick follow up from our report earlier this week about trash cans at Walt Disney World. As you can see from these pictures, the trash cans at the parks are now mostly restored with their lids in a closed position.

When Walt Disney World began its phased reopening from the COVID shutdown in May 2020, all of the trash cans had their lids locked in the up-swing position to reduce guest's physical contact with surfaces.

As pandemic related restrictions are being eased, a team is now in the process of going throughout Walt Disney World restoring the lids.

Disney World is about to move into a significant new phase of reopening with Disney CEO Bob Chapek saying that he expects to see some mask requirements eliminated this summer.

Any rumors on Typhoon Lagoon reopening in the near future?

Let's hope they empty the newly open trash cans before they are overflowing

The birds lose twice. No more trash can french fries, and no more bugs hanging around the open trash cans.

Will no one think of the birds? :(

We saw several birds flying into the trash cans at the Poly looking for food and coming back out with french fries. This should solve that problem.

Any other news about trash cans in their normal state? Asking for a friend.

This will certainly make trash-top dining a more lovely affair!

Little by little, logic and reason will prevail. Just like the CDC acknowledging that outdoors transmission chances of Covid is actually 1%, not 10% Maybe the mask mandate can be lifted before the heat of summer sets in.

I kind of like them how they were but your example is perfectly logical and reasonable as well.
