Under the title “Returning to the World of Magic,” the Walt Disney website announced new visitor guidelines as the coronavirus recedes. Starting this, guests to Walt Disney World in Florida are no longer be required to wear masks, with the exception of when travelling on buses or other forms of transportation within the park or any of the indoor events.
The announcement says the following:
Based on recent trends and guidance, Walt Disney World Resort will be making more adjustments to these measures, including physical distancing and face coverings.
We encourage people to get vaccinated.
While face coverings are required for all guests while in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, they are now optional in most areas for guests who are fully vaccinated. While we do not require proof of vaccination, we expect guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations and upon entering and throughout all attractions and transportation.
“Disney will be relaxing social distancing guidelines in many different places. That includes queues, shops, restaurants, attraction boarding, transportation, and theaters,” an Orlando NBC affiliate reported. The Disney guidance also said that any masks for use indoors and on buses should have “at least 2 layers of breathable material,” fully cover the nose and mouth, and have ties or ear loops to “allow the guest to remain hands-free.”
