Starting Tuesday, masks will be optional for all fully vaccinated guests in most areas of Disneyland Resort. You don’t need to show your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, but you will need to attest that you’re in compliance before entering.

You’ll also need to attest that you’re aware that the State of California strongly recommends being fully vaccinated or receiving a negative COVID-19 test result before entering.

Not fully vaccinated yet? You’ll still need to wear face masks indoors and on all rides and attractions. Feel more comfortable wearing a mask either way? Keep on wearing it! Do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

June 15 also marks the first date for out-of-state guests to return to the park. Be sure to check the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control as well as your state’s travel advisories.

Face Coverings Still Required In Some Cases

There will be a few exceptions to this easing of restrictions. You must still wear face coverings on Disney transportation, including buses from the Toy Story parking lot. When the lot reopens on June 18, all guests over the age of two must wear masks on buses regardless of vaccination status.

Reservations Still Required

Despite the relaxed standards, you’ll still need to make a reservation to visit Disneyland. Capacity at Disneyland remains limited until further notice. 

Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel reopens June 15 with limited capacity. As it stands, capacity will be limited when the Disneyland Hotel reopens on July 2.

Because the State of California has removed all standards for physical distancing, guests are encouraged to space out in accordance with their own personal comfort levels.

Disneyland will also discontinue on-site temperature checks on Tuesday.

If this all means you’re on the fence about visiting from Tuesday on, keep in mind that Disney is still adhering to stringent cleaning standards in line with CDC guidance.

It’s important to remember that this is an evolving situation, so this all can change at any time. Stay tuned to WDW Magazine for the latest updates on what’s happening at your favorite Disney Parks.
