Masks Now Optional Everywhere At Disney World

Once again, masks are no longer required at Walt Disney World.

Disney World changed its face covering policy on Tuesday, April 19. Now, masks are optional everywhere on property, including all Disney transportation.

The official mask policy states online,

“Face coverings are optional for Guests in both outdoor and indoor locations, as well as Disney transportation. It is recommended Guests who are not fully vaccinated continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters and on enclosed transportation. Please note, face coverings are not permitted while experiencing water slides or in the water.”

In March, Disney announced that guests were only required to wear masks on the Monorail and on Disney buses. This was never exclusively a Disney policy, but rather required by the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA).

On April 18, the TSA announced it would no longer enforce the mask mandate on planes and other public transportation. This was a result of a federal judge in Florida voiding the mask mandate on April 18.

The CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks on all public transportation, according to a Biden administration official.

As always, we’ll keep you apprised of any and all mask changes.
