Walt Disney World sees the light at the end of the pandemic’s tunnel, announcing Wednesday that the theme park will start dropping temperature checks this weekend. 

“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 World wrote on its website.

Universal Orlando Resort also announced they are ending temperature checks and reducing social distancing from 6 feet to 3 feet. 

Face coverings are still required at the Magic Kingdom, except for when guests are eating, drinking, or taking photos outside. Face masks are also required at Universal.
