I did notice an uptick in umbrella use in the parks for shade.

HOwever, the walk to SAB was as long or longer than any walk at BWV. So many folks talk about the long hallways/walking at BWV (which we don't notice/mind) , but we walked just as much at BCV. I know we were at a far end. Nice to be close to stairwell and parking lot for access, but walk to pool was long

Also, at AK, for the Gorilla trail, there is social distancing going on there, that changes the queue a bit. After the bird sanctuary area, there will be a line to get into to view the gorilla family. There's a CM letting you know that if you want to view the meerkats, you have to get OUT of the gorilla line, and go up and view them, and then get back into the gorilla line (at the end of the line or skip gorillas, if you only want to see meerkats,) Kids and I went to view meerkats, while DH stood in line. Then when you get to gorilla viewing, there are green dots to stand on, and the CM will hustle you along, they'll let each group watch for about a min/take pics, then ask you to move along.
Not a big deal, but made for less lingering around there. Not much time to take in the gorilla families.

Also, a LOT of the extended queue lines end up in the direct sun. I'd heard a blogger say bring an umbrella for MMRR, as most of that queue is outside, but I wish I'd brought one for all the rides. Toy Story mania had a short line, bout 25 mins, but it was even in the sun, for a part of that. food/wine lines more spread out, lots in the sun, but that is usual. I thought I was gonna melt at the refreshment port.
And I still say Epcot is the hottest park. If you are traversing WS, you are in blazing sun for a lot of that. no shade. not a lot of shade at HS either, AK has more shade than those 2.
We enjoyed the Gorilla trail. I agree with the CMs moving the line along. Double edged sword as I wouldn't want to wait forever, but it seemed short when we were watching them. The yellow birds...they were everywhere...I don't remember them before, but my DIL loves birds so maybe that's why I picked up on them this time. I didn't know about the meerkats. Thank you.

Umbrella: Get a UV blocking one. They work great. Amazon has them and also sometime Costco carries them too. Saved me.

DH and I got one of those - I have to admit it is my favorite photopass picture - even if we are wearing masks!
