It has just been announced that Disney will be requiring masks indoors beginning July 30th. This recent update to the Disney mask policy comes after the Center for Disease Control has updated their guidelines, as well the recommendation from Orange County’s Mayor Jerry Demings.
The Disney website states that all guests ages 2 and up, whether vaccinated or not, will need to be wearing face coverings while indoors. This includes:
- entering attractions
- while on attractions
- enclosed transportation such as buses, shuttles, and monorails
This new policy regarding face coverings applies to both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Disney will begin enforcing this new policy this Friday, July 30.
Being able to go completely without a mask in the Disney parks has been relatively short lived. Disney began allowing vaccinated guests to go without face coverings on June 15th, updating their policy when the CDC determined it to be safe to be without face coverings indoors if people were fully vaccinated, except for when on Disney transportation.
However, with the newest developments in health and safety guidelines, Disney has chosen to remain cautious so that they can best protect their guests. Although the mask guidelines have been adjusted, everything else that Disney has to offer will remain the same at this time, still making this one of the most fun and safest places for guests.
