temp screenings disney world

Walt Disney World Resort has announced that it will be phasing out the use of temperature checks at all of its theme parks as well as Disney Springs beginning this week, with mandatory temperature checks for Cast Members ending on May 8th and then for guests on May 16th. This new move is in line with CDC guidance, which has noted that temperature checks are largely unnecessary when other precautions are being taken. In a statement about the change, Disney said:

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.

You can read more about this change on Walt Disney World's website here. Though this change is now in effect at Walt Disney World, right now Disneyland is still performing mandatory temperature checks still.

In addition to Walt Disney World, it looks like reports have also surfaced that indicate that Universal Orlando Resort will also be phasing out its temperature check stations this week as well, however no official statement has been released just yet.
