We reported yesterday that Florida Governor DeDantis recently announced that he is going to lift pandemic restrictions, and now Disney has made a new update to their health screening process upon entering the Disney World parks!
Disney is now announcing that following the advice of the CDC and the local health officials, they will phase out onsite temperature screenings at Walt Disney World Resort for Cast Members beginning May 8 and later Disney World Guests on May 16, 2021!
You can find this announcement on on Disney’s Experience Updates page:
Since reopening, we have considered guidance from public health authorities, government agencies, and our own team of health and safety experts as we assess and update health and safety measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As this guidance continues to evolve, and with the support of local health and government officials, we are making some additional adjustments. Following the advice of the CDC and our local health officials, we will phase out onsite temperature screenings at Walt Disney World Resort for Cast Members beginning May 8 and Guests on May 16.
We will continue to follow the guidance of health and safety leaders going forward and most importantly encourage people to get vaccinated.
Temperature screenings have been required since the parks reopened last summer and Guests with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher would not be allowed into the parks or Disney Springs. This is another new and exciting step for Disney to take as we get one step closer towards “normalcy.”
