Following a similar move by Universal Orlando, and after announcements about health protocol changes by Orange County and the CDC, Disney World has dropped its requirement that guests wear masks while outdoors. This is the first time since the Disney World parks reopened in July 2020 that guests can visit Disney property without wearing a mask.
The change became effective today, May 15, 2021.
Specifically, Disney says that masks are no longer required for :
Outdoor common areas
Masks Still Need Indoors
While many guests will welcome this news as we enter the hot Florida summer, Disney still does require masks at indoor locations. Specifically, guests must wear masks in these situations:
Upon entering and throughout all attractions
All theaters, including theater entrances
All transportation, including transportation entrances
All indoor locations, including restaurants, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary
Glad that you don’t need to wear a mask when outdoors at Disney World?
