Was Disney World Safe? Post Covid-19 Reopening

People who were not wearing masks in picture took it off just for a photo and right back on.. which I do not know if allowed but they were a safe distance.

Today I had the pleasure of attending the cast member previews with my best friend and her boyfriend! Now listen, I am the worlds biggest worrier EVER! I am terrified of everything but I told my self I will not say no to any opportunity that came my way and within two hours I had to decide to go to Orlando and go to MK for the day or wish I would of said Yes and stayed home. So I researched how safe it would be and let me say, experiencing it confirmed what was said was going to happen was true because I felt extremely safe and here’s why…


So again this was cast members only and very limited amount were allowed in, they had to reserve a spot in order to get into the park. So the park was extremely quiet! All the rides had little or no wait time!


So before you enter the park you must get your temperature scanned and cleared. You then go into security, which are Metal detectors, and when entering them you do not remove your bags, just walk through it with everything on you.


Every cast member is wearing a mask and face shield as well! Also every entrance and exit of a ride, restaurant, etc. had a hand sanitizer dispenser and/or a hand washing station throughout the park.


They were sanitizing rides and social distancing everywhere! Including parking!!! No cars can park next to each other at the same time so families can keep their distance. Also trams are not working so plan to walk a little bit! They had tape everywhere to allow distance. Also rides were empty allowing one party per car. For example splash mountain, space mountain etc. we had our own log! On the Buzz lightyear ride, there was no one 10 cars in front of us and no one behind us for a mile! Haunted mansion, they are not doing the room experience and are doing every other car and stopping to sanitize. The park was completely distant from each other and also only allowing a certain amount of people into stores at a certain amount of time with one entrance and one exit.


They are also social distancing with the monorails and have a shield in between the cars, along with ride lines, they also have plastic shield to separate the lines.


Shield is seen behind me!


In order to eat, you must order your food through the My disney experience app and then you will get a notification on when your food is ready. You then go to the station and pick up the food and go to a social distanced table inside or outside the restaurant. They are also limiting the number of guests and watching to make sure you have your mask on. Only allowing people to take their masks off when food is present.


Now the mask! I for sure thought I was going to be extremely uncomfortable wearing a mask in Florida especially during the summer. But I’m not going to lie… it really was not that bad!!! I think the excitement of being in the park took my mind off my face. But I wore a heavy mask and didn’t feel uncomfortable once.


I was extremely impressed with Disney. I know this was only cast members and there was a super low amount of people but I was extremely impressed and didn’t get near anyone and didn’t feel like I put myself or others in danger. Which is extremely impressive if I feel like this because again if you know me I’m the worlds biggest worrier about anything and everything! I honestly felt more in danger going to Walmart and target than I did today at Disney.


In my opinion, have fun, be safe, stay hydrated, put on a cute mask and follow the guidelines to have fun!


So grateful my bff invited me for a day of magic! Hope this helps you if you plan on going to Disney Post Covid! If you have any questions do not be afraid to ask!

NEW PANDORA RIDE AT DISNEY

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

Ryan and I drove 2 and half hours to DISNEY!!! After 6 months we are finally back at our HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!IMG_1621

We decided to become annual Pass holders!!! We bought the Weekday annual for $114 and $14 a month so we can now come any weekday of the year! Which means after 2 visits you get your money worth and you get free parking which is normally $20! and discounts on almost everything you buy in the park!!!

We stayed in Orlando for two days so we decided to go to Magic Kingdom FIRST!

When you get to Magic Kingdom, you have to park at the transportation center where you can take a Ferry or the Monorail! We obviously took the Monorail because it gives the prettiest views even though I am kinda scared of it lol

I have never been to Disney during the Fall time but BOY OH BOY IS IT BEAUTIFUL!!! They decorate the park so well which is amazing considering how Florida does not get season, BUT disney helps get ride of that seasonal FOMO.

Ryan and I walked around Magic Kingdom and rode all the rides before we went to our friends house to go to sleep and wake up at 7am to be at Animal Kingdom for the opening!

Ryan and I ate at Animal Kingdom’s Rainforest cafe at 8:30am and had waffles which were BOMB! We ate them super quick however, because the park opened at 9am and we wanted to see if we could bet the line to the flight of passage ride in Pandora!

SO… It is 9:05am and we are in the park like the park just opened and the line for the PANDORA FLIGHT OF PASSAGE WAS OVER 3 HOURS LONG (I think it could have been 4 hours +) Ryan and I saw the line and was like nope we will come back LOL so we keep walking and realized the other new Pandora ride Na’vi River Ride was only 30 mins long! So we jumped right into the line and rode the ride! IMG_1675

Sorry for the blurry picture but this ride was so aesthetic pleasing!!! If you’ve been on it’s a small world it is smiler to that ride as you are on a boat and you ride around a river looking at beautiful colorful scenery! It is really pretty and calm!!! IMG_1693IMG_1715IMG_1704  After the river ride we decided to get all the other rides in Animal Kingdom done before we waited for the Flight of Passage ride! We first went of the Safari where we saw a bunch of animals and even got super close to some as they walked across the roads! IMG_1774IMG_1748

We then just walked around and went on every single ride including one of our favorite rollercoaster Mount Everest! Check out my Instagram @jaraandrea I made a funny joke under this photo haha! IMG_1853IMG_1851

Ryan and I knew we were going to be waiting 2 and a half hours so we grab our lunch to bring into the line and eat while we wait rather than waste time not in line! IMG_1843

PS. THIS IS WHAT I LOOK LIKE WHILE I WAIT LOL IMG_1869IMG_1868

The line for Flight of Passage begins outside where you get to see so many beautiful scenery!!! Honestly, the whole wait for this ride is so worth it there is something new to see every turn you make! IMG_1881IMG_1882IMG_1884IMG_1888IMG_1892IMG_1897IMG_1904IMG_1909

Also my camera died so I had to use my iPhone camera so the quality is not that good in low lighting! but here are some more views of what you see while waiting in line!!! IT IS SO COOL!!! BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW COOL THE RIDE IS!!!! So yes the line is super cool! You then get split up into groups of 16 and go into separate rooms where you are scanned to become an avatar and find out what avatar you are!!! You then leave the room and go in front of a screen where you talk to the boss lady and she tells you how this flight is going to go! You then walk into a room where there is what looks like cycling bikes where you sit like a bike and then back harness comes up behind your legs and lower back strapping you in! The little screen under you scans you in and your avatar is locked in and you are ready to ride a Banshee!!! WHEN I SAY I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON A RIDE LIKE THIS I MEAN IT!!! IT IS SO FREAKING COOL!!!! You are looking at the screen under you on the bike and then it gets super dark and these white dots come out as if you were dizzy and BOMB A HUGE SCREEN APPEARS OUT OF NO WHERE!!!! YOU THEN FEEL THE WIND!!! SMELL THE GRASS, WATER, SCENTS!!! You feel as if you are actually going upside down and making turns and the bike thing you are on massages and blows air on you to feel all the little details you need to actually feeling like for those 7 mins that you are an Avatar riding a BANSHEE!!! I 110% THINK EVERYONE SHOULD RIDE THIS RIDE!!! I had a little girl next to me screaming the whole time of joy and as soon as it ended she keep saying again! again!!! and we talked about how cool the ride was after!!!

Hope you enjoyed the read about our Disney trip!!!
