Are face masks still required at Disney World and Disneyland

Disney World and Disneyland are making a major change to their mask policy.

Starting February 17th, face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated guests in both outdoor and indoor locations at Disney World and Disneyland. But in accordance with an existing CDC order requiring face coverings on public transportation, face coverings will still be required for all guests ages 2 and up on enclosed Disney transportation at both resorts, like shuttles, monorails, rides like Splash Mountain, and the Disney Skyliner. Disneyland also requires face coverings in “health settings, such as in First Aid.”

Disney World said on its website that it expects parkgoers “who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions, and theaters.” Disneyland, on the other hand, was more explicit, requiring face masks for all unvaccinated visitors ages 2 and up. However, guests are not required to provide proof of vaccination, and it’s not clear whether these changes will also apply to Disney World and Disneyland employees.

These changes to Disney World and Disneyland’s mask policy come after Universal Orlando lifted its indoor and outdoor face-covering requirement for fully vaccinated guests last Saturday. Unvaccinated guests, meanwhile, are still encouraged to wear face coverings in indoor locations at the Florida theme park.

Meanwhile, at Universal Studios Hollywood, guests are still required to wear face coverings at all times, both indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status in accordance with a Los Angeles County face-covering mandate. Universal Studios Hollywood also has a vaccination or negative COVID-19 test requirement for all guests ages 5 and older.
