Following the latest CDC and Orange County COVID-19 guidance changes, Walt Disney World will no longer require masks to be worn when guests are outdoors.
The new policy went into effect on May 15th at all of the Walt Disney World theme parks, Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Disney Springs. Masks will still be required at the Disney theme parks when guests are indoors, which includes when guests are queuing for and riding attractions. Masks will continue to be required on Disney transportation. As was announced earlier, physical distancing will also remain in place, with the original 6ft. being reduced to 3 ft. over the coming weeks.
Here is the new face mask policy that went into effect on May 15th –
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them in all indoor locations, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing. Face coverings are optional in outdoor common areas at Walt Disney World Resort, but are still required upon entering and throughout all attractions, theaters and transportation.
