Disney has dropped mask requirements on February 17th at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort for all fully vaccinated guests.
Disney will no longer require masks to be worn at it’s domestic theme parks and hotels for fully vaccinated guests, except when on transportation systems.
Disney issued a statement addressing the change on both coasts –
Beginning February 17, 2022, Face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated Guests in both outdoor and indoor locations. We expect Guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters. Face coverings will still be required by all Guests (ages 2 and up) on enclosed Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails, and Disney Skyliner.
Even though technically the change only affects guest who are fully vaccinated, Disney has made no mention of asking for verification of vaccination status. From a practical and historical standpoint, it’s unlikely that Disney will do so. Prior to the re-introduction of the mask requirement at Walt Disney World, Disney didn’t ask for or check vaccination status in order to enforce the previous no-mask requirement for fully vaccinated guests. They will likely continue this policy and operate on the “honor system” with guests.
