Ever since Walt Disney World reopened in July 2020, temperature screenings have been part of the health and safety protocols. But, that’s changing soon.
Disney updated their health and safety measures on May 5 stating that temperature screenings will be phased out starting in May.
Per Disney World’s official website, “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.”
Disney also stated, “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.”
Until temperature screenings officially end across Disney World, they will still be required at theme park entry, prior to entering Disney Springs, and before dining in table-service locations at Disney Resort hotels.
Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be rescreened. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
In the words of Disney, “We will continue to follow the guidance of health and safety leaders going forward and most importantly encourage people to get vaccinated.”
