It’s not exactly a controversial statement to say that a trip to Walt Disney World today isn’t quite like it used to be. In order to open safely, the theme parks have needed to change the way they operate in many ways. Several of the most popular attractions, like fireworks shows and parades, are entirely on hold. Others, like some of the most popular rides, are running, but they don’t work the same way. Though that’s not to say that everything is off at Disney World. In fact, some of the ways that the parks have found to provide guests with a Disney World experience under current conditions are pretty great.

Here are five things happening at Walt Disney World right now because of the pandemic that are actually awesome.
