If you’re headed to Disney World this weekend, you’ll notice that face coverings are now optional in outdoor common areas but will remain required when entering the resort and throughout all attractions, theaters, and transportation.

Masks will also be optional on pool decks on Disney property.

Guests will still have to wear a mask upon entering and throughout all attractions, in all theaters, theatre entrances, in transportation, transportation entrances, and all indoor locations.

If a guest is stationary while eating food or drinking a beverage, the guest is allowed to be maskless.

Disney still is requiring the following with regard to masks:

  • Be made with at least 2 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

Cast members are no longer required to go through onsite temperature screenings and guests will no longer have to go through temperature screenings beginning Sunday, May 16.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek recently said that Disney has already begun raising the number of people allowed into their parks in Florida after Gov. Ron DeSantis relaxed restrictions. Disney’s CEO did not share how many more people were actually being allowed int0 the parks, above the previous third of a park’s capacity. It’s assumed that the goal will be to get back to pre-pandemic numbers now that CDC guidelines have begun to relax restrictions.
