- Disney Skyliner – This brand new Disney transportation system has no major impacts. It is one party per gondola, which isn’t too different than how the gondolas have been running aside from peak times of the day. Due to reduced attendance and occupancy at Walt Disney World, and no park hopping, we aren’t seeing significant delays or long wait times for the Skyliner system.
- Magic Kingdom Ferry Boat – As you board you’ll notice physical distancing dots placed on the ground. One party of around five people per dot maximum is permitted. So if you’re a party of two you will get your own dot. Each ferry boat takes approximately 60 groups per load. During peak times you can expect some delays and wait times.
- Resort Water Taxis – The resort water taxis follow a similar system except they use bench seating. One party per bench, no combining of parties on the same bench. Each bench or row is staggered. Benches next to each other will have one bench available with the neighboring bench unavailable, and the bench behind will be unavailable too. No standing is allowed. During peak times you can expect some delays and wait times.
- Friendships at EPCOT – These boats follow the same protocols as the resort water taxis: staggered rows, one party per bench. No standing is allowed. During peak times you can expect some delays and wait times. We’ve seen some guests enjoy private cruises aboard the Friendship due to low attendance during certain days and times of day.
- Monorail – The original Disney transportation icon is popular, but now has significantly reduced capacity. Two parties per compartment, which equals four parties per car. One party per bench. No standing. There is also a clear barrier between compartments that are back to back in the middle of the car. Currently, at the time of writing this post, only Express and Resort Monorail loops are running, which means there is no monorail running between EPCOT and the Transportation and Ticket Center.
- Buses – Disney buses are the most common way to get around. Buses have been impacted the most, besides the monorail. There is no standing allowed and just six groups per bus. There are partitions on the bus.
- Minnie Vans – currently unavailable.
- Parking Lot Trams – currently unavailable.
For practically all modes of Disney transportation guests are staggered on the platforms or loading areas. This helps with distancing as well as to pre-assign each party to a numbered spot inside the bus or boat.
