An updated map for Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom showed new “relaxation stations” have been added to the park, raising questions about the park’s reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

What’s going on:

  • Multiple reportsshared new maps of the Magic Kingdom, which list safety procedures for the park and give a glimpse of new“relaxation stations.”
  • The stations are scattered throughout the park.
  • These areas are places where guests can take off their masks and relax for a bit.
  • Three locations appear to be in Magic Kingdom. One is in the corner of Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. Another is near Main Street USA. The third is near the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
  • See the maps below.

  • According to the map, the relaxation stations are “controlled areas where face coverings may be temporarily removed.” 
  • Masks are required everywhere else.
  • There’s no indication of how much space there is at these stations.

Walt Disney World reopening

  • Questions have been raised about whether or not Disney World will reopen given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Florida (Florida reported 6,336 new cases of the COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the state’s total to 206,447 cases with 3,778 deaths, according to The Tampa Bay Times).
  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantissupported the decision for Walt Disney World to reopen, though, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
  • DeSantis said: “Disney, I have no doubt is going to be a safe environment. I think that where you start to see the spread is just in social situations where people let their guard down. Usually like a private party or something like that.”
