Disney World modifies its face mask policy again, making them optional for outdoor use.

Walt Disney World is changing its stance on face masks yet again.

Beginning Thursday, guests to the Florida theme park resort will be able to choose whether or not to wear facial covers in outside lines, outdoor theaters, and outdoor activities. Previously, masks were necessary.

In outdoor communal spaces, face coverings will remain optional. With the exception of ferry boats, they will continue to be needed for guests aged 2 and above in all indoor places such as restaurants, theaters, and transportation.

Disney World shuttered for two months last year at the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic and reopened more over a year ago with rigorous safety rules that included masking, social distance, and crowd limits.

Disney World officials began allowing tourists to enter outdoor common spaces sans masks last spring.

Disney authorities said last month that all paid and non-union hourly employees in the United States who work on-site will be required to be completely vaccinated.
