Disney Announces Masks and Social Distancing Will Be Gone by 2022, If Not Earlier
The Walt Disney Company provided lots of updates during today’s earnings call! But, one of the most important takeaways that I am happy to report is that masks and social distancing will no longer be required in 2022, if not before, at Walt Disney World and other Disney Parks around the world.
The target of phasing out masks and social distancing measures by 2022 at Disney Parks might even be sped up based on news from the federal government that came out just today regarding vaccines. During the earnings call, Disney said that park’s capacity numbers along with mask mandates and social distancing is all dependent on vaccination numbers.
This morning, Dr. Fauci told NBC’s Today Show that April of this year will be considered “open season” and all Americans, not just ones in certain groups or phases, will have access to get a vaccine. He said, “By the time we get to April, that will be what I would call open season.”
Then, just this evening, the Biden Administration announced that they have purchased enough vaccines to vaccinate all Americans. President Biden said, “We’re now on track to have enough supply to for 300 million Americans by the end of the July.”
While masks and social distancing is going to be required a little bit longer at Walt Disney World and other Disney Parks, I think we are finally really starting to see that “light at the end of the tunnel.” Having some end date announced gives us all something to look forward to!
Even if it is at the very beginning of 2022 that we finally see masks and social distancing go away, I have to say wearing a mask at Walt Disney World is not that bad at all! I have personally visited with my small children and still had as much fun or better!
