Disney World has just announced that they will be making a change to their face mask policy beginning Thursday, August 19th. Here’s the announcement:
Since May, face coverings have been optional for Guests in outdoor common areas, and beginning Thursday, August 19, face coverings will also be optional for Guests in outdoor attractions, outdoor queues and outdoor theaters at Walt Disney World Resort.
As a reminder, face coverings remain required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors and in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status.
Currently, guests are only allowed to remove their face coverings in outdoor common areas and pool decks. This new policy will expand the locations that vaccinated and unvaccinated guests can go maskless.
