While we’ve been visiting the attractions, checking out Quick Service dining, and watching new entertainment, we’re also taking a look at all the brand new merchandise!

Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom are set to officially reopen to the public on July 11th, while Hollywood Studios and EPCOT aren’t far behind with a reopen date on July 15th.

Ahead of their reopening dates, we’ve been curious to see how shopping might change during Disney World’s reopening. While we’ve experienced retail spots in Disney Springs and the Disney Resorts, we’re taking you with us to see the shopping modifications happening inside Magic Kingdom for the Cast Member preview today!

Crowd Levels

While Disney World won’t be utilizing Virtual Queues at attractions, we’ve seen them used at places like the World of Disney and the Marketplace Co-Op. In the parks, the same virtual line procedures will take place when crowds increase to capacity.

If the stores reach capacity, Cast Members will have the ability to turn on the store’s virtual queue, which guests will be able to sign up for and get a return time assigned.

Distancing Measures

Multiple locations across Disney World have limited the number of people visiting the stores when they’re open. The stores in the parks will be doing the same during the initial reopening phase.

Social distancing markers are placed outside the door for guests to stand on when the stores have reached capacity. The stores are arranged as a one-way street, meaning guests must enter and exit through designated entries and exits.

Signs reminding guests to keep a 6-foot distance are placed throughout the stores as well.

Shopping

Guests were asked to handle the products minimally as they shopped in the store. Additionally, dressing rooms were closed to reduce merchandise contact too.

Check-Out

The check-out area was formatted like the stores we’ve seen in Disney Springs. Check-out markers are placed in front of registers so guests can wait for their turn behind the designated signs.

Plexiglass barriers were installed in front of each of the registers. Additionally, floor markers indicate the distance you should keep between you and other guests while waiting in line too.
