Beginning February 17, Disney World will no longer have a face mask mandate for its theme parks and resorts. Face coverings will still be required for all guests on enclosed transportation such as the monorail, Disney Skyliner, and buses. Disney will not mandate face coverings for guests who are not vaccinated indoors. Instead, they “expect” that guests who are not fully vaccinated will wear a face mask indoors. Disney will not be checking the vaccination status of its guests, making enforcement of their “expectation” impossible. Here’s the announcement:
COVID‑19 has been a constantly evolving situation, and for nearly two years, we’ve been very intentional and gradual in our approach to COVID‑19 health and safety protocols. Given recent community trends and the availability of vaccines, we are positioned to responsibly adjust our health and safety protocols for fully vaccinated Guests. Beginning Thursday, February 17, the following health and safety updates will be in place at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
Face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated Guests in both outdoor and indoor locations. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are expected to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters. Face coverings are still required by all Guests (ages 2 and up) on enclosed Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails, and Disney Skyliner.
Here’s a look at the current face mask rules, followed by the updated face mask rules starting February 17.
