We’ve seen lots of physical distancing measure updates over in the Mexico Pavilion recently. Today we found that they have updated the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros queue system. Guests entering the pavilion are now instructed to enter the right-hand doors for the attraction, and left-hand doors for the rest of the pavilion’s offerings. This means that the left ramp is now the only way to exit the area.

Refurbishment is currently underway over in the Norway Pavilion, where today we found out that they are replacing the floors. Because of this, the famous troll statue (who according to Cast Members is currently named Henry) has been relocated to the other side of the shop.

Over in Germany, we found that Karamell-Kuche has returned to using its main entrance doors again. Until now, they had been directing guests to line up and enter through one of the exit doors.
