We are seeing more signs of Walt Disney World returning to pre-pandemic “normal” with the return of pre-shows across the various parks!

During the pandemic a lot of these pre-shows were shut down and guests were taken directly through the the attraction to maintain physical distancing guidelines.

Now the popular pre-shows are returning across all four parks at Walt Disney World.

The Haunted Mansion stretching room is being used again.

Over at the Hollywood Tower Hotel guests are once again being shown the Twilight Zone pre-show in the library.

The Rock N’ Roller Coaster has brought back the pre-show featuring Aerosmith.

Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom the pre-show for Dinosaur is back.

These are just a few among others that have returned for guests.

We are seeing more and more elements of attractions, shows, lines, etc. returning to pre-pandemic normal.

Now if we could just get Fast Passes back!
