BREAKING: Disney World Will Require Masks Indoors Again

Disney World’s health and safety guidelines have changed a lot over the past year.

And, over the past few months, we’ve seen as many health and safety measures have gone back to “normal” in the parks and resorts. Temperature screenings are no longer required, physical distancing measures have been reduced in standby lines and stores, and mask policies have been relaxed. However, that is set to change soon.

According to Disney’s website, all guests will be required to wear face masks indoors regardless of vaccination status starting on July 30th.


And, similar to its former policy, face coverings will be required for all guests (aged 2 and up) while indoors, as well as on Disney transportation (including buses, monorail, and Skyliner), and while entering and throughout all attractions. Face masks will be required regardless of vaccination status.

Masks will remain optional in outdoor locations at the Disney World parks and resorts and they have not announced any changes to capacity limits or physical distancing measures in the parks.

These changes come just days after Florida’s Orange County Mayor issued a local state of emergency following the CDC’s updated mask guidance, recommending that all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear face masks in areas where there is a “high” or “substantial” transmission of COVID-19 (and Florida is considered in the “high” category).

  1. I remember when I used to tell my little children “Bad choices have consequences”. Applies to adults , too.

  2. Now my husband wants to cancel our October trip. We are both vaccinated. The selfish people who refused to follow the CDC guidelines have ruined things for those of us that have.

  3. Wow. Between the masks and the price jumps for everything, Disney is working overtime to get me to not renew my annual pass.
