Navigating COVID-19 mask policies on any trip, but especially to Disney Parks, has been challenging, especially as Disney World, Disneyland, and international parks have contended with varying guidelines. Today marks another Disney mask policy change applicable to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Starting Feb. 17, both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will implement a laxer mask policy, in accordance with local laws and the ever-changing COVID-19 situation.
As we move out of the winter surge caused by Omicron and as vaccination rates continue to climb, the official Disney mask policy at both Disneyland and Disney World will be optional both indoors and outdoors, with special rules on transportation.
Do I Have to Wear a Mask at Disney World and Disneyland?
Starting Feb. 17, 2022, fully vaccinated guests are able to go mask-free both inside (like at restaurants and indoor rides) and outside at Disney World and Disneyland. Masks are always allowed, but for guests who have gotten their vaccines, they are newly optional (again) in indoor spaces.
Please note that the new Disney mask guidelines apply only to those who are vaccinated. If you have not yet received a vaccine, you are still required to wear a mask indoors at Disney World.
Masks are still required, regardless of vaccination status, aboard all enclosed Disney transportation. This includes buses, monorails, and the Disney Skyliner.
COVID Updates at Disney
The COVID-19 situation is constantly changing. We’ve seen Disney loosen restrictions before only to reinstate them as things got worse again. Before your trip to Walt Disney World, check out the current COVID guidelines at Disney and pack a few masks, just to be safe.
