The current executive chairman of Disney, Bob Iger is considering a major shift for visitors who are planning a trip to the happiest place on earth. In an interview with Barron's magazine Bob suggested admitted that he is floating the idea of "temperature checks" for guests and basically, "more scrutiny, more restrictions. Just as we now do bag checks for everybody that goes into our parks, it could be that at some point we add a component of that that takes people’s temperatures, as a for-instance,” he said. The Disney boss said that he wants to focus on people feeling safe at the parks, “Let’s prepare for a world where our customers demand that we scrutinize everybody,” said Iger. “Even if it creates a little bit of hardship, like it takes a little bit longer for people to get in.” Bob is taking China's lead, saying that temperature checks there are now the norm. He said, You can’t get on a bus or a subway or a train or enter a high-rise building there...without having your temperature taken.”
