We’ve seen as mandatory temperature screenings have been eliminatedphysical distancing measures have been reduced, and the guest mask policy has gone from being required in all areas to now only being required indoors and in select outdoor areas. But, now the mask policy is set to change again slightly.

According to Disney’s website, face coverings will be optional for guests on all outdoor attractions, in outdoor queues, and in outdoor theaters at Disney World beginning tomorrow, August 19th.


So, now guests may choose to remove their masks on attractions like Dumbo and Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom, while standing in outdoor portions of queues like we’ve seen at Slinky Dog Dash, and when watching any outdoor theater shows.

This adds to the current locations that guests may remove their masks including all outdoor common areas. However, the mandate will remain in place for all guests ages 2 and up to wear masks when indoors and in Disney buses or on the monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status.
