And the ludicrous part of it is that I’m assuming that for something like swirling saucers, you’ll still have to wear a mask since there’s a roof, but everyone can pack like sardines in front of Cinderella Castle w/o masks and that’s what Disney is considering to be safe for their guests to be doing.

What the mouse heard: “Time to let our guard down!”
Since mixed rides still require masks, the only rides and queues this applies to are:
Astro Orbiter (maybe not on the elevator?)
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (queue only)
Dumbo (ride only)
Jungle Cruise (queue only)
Liberty Square Riverboat
Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (queue only)
Splash Mountain (queue only)
Spaceship Earth (queue only)
Alien Swirling Saucers
Slinky Dog Dash
Kali River Rapids
Na'vi River Journey (queue only)
And presumably any outdoor portion of queues before they head indoors. This is too small of a change to be worth the creation of more confusion.
Touring Plans is reporting that DHS was so slow, that for a couple of days last week Boarding Groups for RotR were available for hours in the park.....Obviously, Orlando, both Disney & Universal, are
really missing all of those August/Sept. UK tourists that greatly augmented attendance during this normally slow time of the year.
It would be a step into the past, certainly. I think we're going to have to accept that Boarding Groups are here to stay for now. They probably want each park to have one attraction that's running on a BG.
