Starting Friday, all Walt Disney World guests aged 2 and up, regardless of vaccination status, will be forced to wear masks indoors and on Disney transportation, including buses, the monorail, and the Disney Skyliner.
The policy change affects both entering and exiting attractions. Masks will remain optional in outdoor communal spaces.
Face coverings in Disney World should include:
- Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
- Face coverings should not contain valves, mesh material, or holes.
- The regulation change occurred after Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings advised residents and tourists to wear masks when in an interior environment with people, whether they are vaccinated or not.
“I want to show our residents and visitors Orange County is being proactive … we remain focused on lowering our numbers of hospitalizations,” Demings said. “I have endeavored to keep you fully informed during this pandemic.”
The most recent Disney World mask policy is shown below:
Effective July 30
Beginning July 30, face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors and in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status. This includes upon entering and throughout all attractions. Face coverings remain optional for all Guests in outdoor common areas.
Face Covering Requirements until July 30
While face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) 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 except ferry boats.
