Disney Has Stormtroopers Enforcing Social Distancing Protocols in Disney Springs

Disney has been re-opening a few of its locations now that the US has been easing up on the COVID-19 lockdown and it looks like the House of Mouse has decided to delegate Star Wars stormtroopers to enforce social distancing protocols.

Disney Springs in Orlando has been one of the few Disney World theme park locations to re-open last week and footage from the park shared by Attractions Magazine show stormtroopers performing little skits that focus on making sure that guests wear facemasks. The videos also show the troopers reminding guests to practice social distancing – everyone has to stay at least six feet apart to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The stormtroopers have pretty clever lines that remind guests to follow social distancing. One stormtrooper yells at their comrade to "stay in your sector" when they get too close to one another. Another warns "I'm going to need you to move one male bantha's length away, please," with the other stormtrooper replying "roger that."

You can check out a video of the skit down below:

It'd definitely be interesting to see the stormtroopers make actual patrols around the park, making sure that guests follow social distancing measures.

Disney Springs reopened on May 2. Guests have been required to wear masks and take temperature checks before entering the park. Disney World park is still closed and will reopen sometime in the middle of July.

Disney will probably have to continue enforcing safety protocols until the US fully clears from the COVID-19 pandemic.
