PHOTOS - A look inside World of Disney at Disney Springs with new social distancing measures

Inside World of Disney reopening post COVID-19 shutdown

World of Disney reopened yesterday at Disney Springs with new social distancing measures in place including a virtual queue and significantly reduced capacity.

Stepping inside a COVID-19 World of Disney is a very different experience. Gone are the crowds of people - even though the store is operating at 100% of its new capacity. New signage asks guests to maintain 6ft of distance and to limit handling of products - a polar opposite to the old experience.

At the registers, markings on the floor indicate where guests can stand, and large plastic shields separate the guest and Cast member.

The capacity of the store has been massively reduced, which makes shopping in World of Disney a pleasure, once you get inside.

Guests arriving at World of Disney join a virtual queue and are given a return time via text message. Yesterday's opening saw an exterior queue of around 1 hour to secure a virtual queue spot with a return time about 4 hours later. 

World of Disney is scheduled to open at 10am daily.
