Walt Disney World face covering policy change

Disney just announced major changes to their mask policy at their Walt Disney World resort and parks.

Tuesday afternoon the company announced, starting February 17, 2022, face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated Guests in both outdoor and indoor locations.

“We expect Guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters,’ listed the company’s rules on its website.

Disney says Face coverings will still be required by all Guests (ages 2 and up) on enclosed Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails, and Disney Skyliner.

Through February 16, 2022, face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) in all indoor locations, regardless of vaccination status. Disney says this includes upon entering and throughout all indoor attractions and indoor queues and in Disney buses, monorail, and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status.

Disney reiterated, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin, triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings on their property.
