Cast Members Sanitizing Entry Scanners at Walt Disney World Amid Coronavirus Concerns


Walt Disney World Cast Members are now wiping down Magic Band scanners and finger print scanners at Disney Parks.

WDWNT has photos of Cast Members wiping down the scanners after each guest at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.


Of course at this point in the day the crowds were very low, I don’t see how they can do this between guests at opening or peak entry times.

However, this goes along with their sanitation procedures they mentioned to yesterday:

We have very stringent sanitation procedures in place at Walt Disney World Resort. We are in close contact with health agencies for information and guidance, and at this time, we are continuing to communicate to our Cast the importance of preventative measures such as frequent handwashing and rigorous cleaning processes.

For guest convenience, we have placed additional hand sanitizers throughout our parks and resorts and will adjust our protocols as the situation warrants.

There are already cases of Covid-19 in both Florida and California at this point.

When you think about how many people touch those daily it makes sense that a lot of people get sick when they visit the parks. This is why it’s important to use good hygiene like washing your hands well and often as well as using hand sanitizer on any trip to a busy location like Walt Disney World.

I even take disinfectant wipes to wipe down surfaces that I’m worried about. Because things like the flu and Norovirus are also a possibility when visiting Walt Disney World.

I’m glad to see them trying to do what they can to prevent the spread of illness.
