There was another wave of stores that have reopened this week at Disney Springs. We were live yesterday at World of Disney, which drew in huge crowds resulting in wait times of up to six hours to shop!
Today we checked out The LEGO Store, which also opened on May 27. Being a store that was centered around hands-on playing with the Legos, shopping here is pretty different now with the new health and safety measurements in place!
Currently, there is only one working entrance to access The LEGO Store.
If outdoor queues are necessary, floor markers are present to indicate where guests should stand to maintain a six-foot distance from other parties.
Once inside, guests will see additional floor markings to maintain social distancing from other shoppers.
The store has taken several measures to reduce the number of touchpoints where germs could spread. Their interactive touch screen computers have been turned off. The bins with build-your-own parts for minifigs and Legos for guests to play were also unavailable at this time to reduce touching.
In addition, guests are NOT allowed to approach the shelves or touch ANY products inside the LEGO Store. This is indicated by taped-off sections of the store.
Additional floor markings are present to remind guests to stay on the “yellow” area, in this instance meaning where the yellow floor markings are located. The floor marking reads, “Kindly stay within the yellow area of the floor.”
If a guest wishes to see a product, LEGO Store employees are available to grab the item for them as well as talk about the product and answer any questions the guest may have.
When a guest is ready to check out, the registers are set up in a way so guests are off to the side of the employee instead of standing right in front of them.
Hand sanitizer is readily available for guests and employees to use at the register.
Overall, the health and safety protocol at The LEGO Store are highly visible! With no guests permitted to touch or interact with the products, The LEGO Store may feel a little different than what we’re used to. Having employees on hand to interact with the guests though is a nice touch, and still offers guests the opportunity to learn about the products available for purchase.
Take a look at some of the other health and safety protocol we’ve seen at retail shops in Disney Springs here!
