Guests wishing to dine at table-service restaurants at hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort will no be required to undergo temperature screenings. The update is now shown on the Walt Disney World Resort website in at least two places. The policy is the same for table-service restaurants as for the parks or Disney Springs. Guests who have an initial temperature of 100.4 F or above will get additional screening and assistance. Those who have temperatures of 100.4 F or above and their party will not be allowed entrance to the location.
The following update was shared on the Health and Hygiene portion of the Dining: Know Before You Go page on the Walt Disney World website:
Temperature Screenings: Guests dining in table-service restaurants at Disney Resort hotels will undergo a temperature screening prior to entering the location. As with other locations at Walt Disney World Resort that require temperature screenings before entry, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be directed to an additional rescreening. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
The following guidelines are what is now found regarding temperature screenings in general at waltdisneyworld.com/updates:
Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be directed to an additional location for rescreening and assistance. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
Before you leave home, be sure to check the temperatures of everyone in your party—including yourself—as an extra layer of precaution.
Disney continues to update policies as it strives to create a safe Disney experience for guests and also cast members. Recently Disney updated its face covering policy to not include bandanas and neck-gaiters. Within days, the policy was updated again to not include face masks with valves or mesh. Expect Disney to continue to adapt safety protocols as it recognizes and changes to create the safest Disney experience possible.
